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.

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.

X2

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.

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
