Hello Friends!
Bob from NJ here. My first car was a 1973 GT that I owned and drove from 26 years. My dad bought it new in 1973. Sold her in 2004. I'll try to post a picture later. I'm new to the Forum. Looks like a great place!

I'm in the market for a #1 1972 GTS Sportsroof with manual transmission. Keep me in mind please.

Thanks so much!
Bob here in NJ

Thanks! She was quite a car! I swapped the born-with 351W 2V for the '69 351W 4V motor. Added a C6 trans with a reverse valve body and 3.89 gears with Equa-Loc out back. Ran in the low 15 second range thru the traps at Englishtown's Raceway Park. Sold her 2004 to help finance a '67 GT350.
