Hi, all,

Just purchased a 72 Gran Torino, 2 door, 351C in pretty good condition, 69k miles on it.  I had the 4 door version back in the mid-80's.  Appreciate all of the knowledge throughout these posts.  Look forward to contributing where I can and but will likely be absorbing more knowledge than I can offer.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forum, looks like a nice clean example the got a respray from brown to tan at some point. 

As I like to tell folks, search eBay for a set of factory 1972 Service paper manuals if you plan on holding onto the car. Worth their weight in gold for fixing things.

Thanks, yes the respray is unfortunate, will try to get it back to an original 72 color eventually.
