      If I can offer some advice,,,these 71-73 mustangs all looked long in the nose if not shortened to 108" wheel base. My father ran one & kept from the firewall back stock, cut the fenders in the center of the wheel well, took 5-6 inches out, welded them back together & cut the wheel opening to fit the tire, sounds weird, but watched him do it,  it took the long look away from the front of the car, it had a 65 ford front frame on the car aswell,,,,,,,,

    AMT 1941 Plymouth standing in as a movie car for the 1941 DeSoto in 'Cool Hand Luke'. If you have seen the movie I know you remember the car wash girl....well this Plymouth was as close as I could get to the DeSoto in the film.....
