Just picked up a 510!!!

Post by thehulk » 19 Mar 2018 07:36

Hi all,

New to the forum. New to 510 ownership. Actually new to just about everything related to this. I've always been into Mustangs, Corvettes, etc. But I've also always been into cool cars and racing so this car is a no-brainer.

I just picked this car up on Saturday. It's a 1971 510 with a LOT of racing history up here in Alaska. One of the previous owners decided to cut the top off. Thankfully, he kept it. It will be going back on. Anyway, the car runs like a charm, but I'll be needing some front brakes, front hubs (somebody welded on the studs and one is broken. Ugh!) and a few other minor things to get it to pass tech. I'll be doing a LOT of body work to it and maybe a few performance enhancements, but mostly just getting it pretty again. I'm hoping this forum can help me get there. Looking forward to the challenge.

Challenge indeed, but well worth it. Welcome and hope you have a warm spot to work (or at least dry!)
