Luckily the 73 2nd Gen has a little more clearance than the 1st Gen F-body does. Mods will depend on Wheel & Tire size wanted.

Looks to me like itīs on airbags, lowered while parked.

Trust me, you'd be very unhappy actually driving a car that low. Bags are one thing, but leaving it like that and trying drive it...

I dont think the car is as low as it looks. Look at the distance at the rockers. I think Thats all wheel and tires.

I agree, that has to be bagged!

Old Foose trick, giant wheels, rubber band tires, instant lowering job.

The car is lowered also though, but probably driveable like that. My Mustang was low but never had a problem.

If you lower the front your gonna need to lower the rear to level it out.

yea i might lower it an inch from the back but am kinda looking for that stance were the front is low and the back is a little higher. Thanks for the input though.

anyone notice the shape of the front wheel well openings and how they look backwards????? oh and the stick on plastic mouldings to cover the hacked wheel wells.....Hmmmmmm.... Git the rope.....

That car is low... pictures and colors make it look off but if you judge by the wheel centerline and the fact that there really is a little bit of rubber on there, she is down there. I also bet its on Air because it looks like it had a dakota digital control system mounted in the console and you would not want to drive a first gen that low cause you would be sitting on the factory bumpstops unless you cut the pan out.
That is a good looking car and as far as the fender mouldings go... those arent stick on plastic mouldings :D
