Nice looking coupe! Slowly reassembling a '72 T targa I bought from a friend recently- he'd lost interest in the restoration after the paintwork etc and I've always wanted a longhood. Luckily always an AZ car so no rust and very solid.

Something about the "older" cars! Hopefully have it running later this winter...

I run 7Rs. Stock 73 T fenders. I think I use a 6 mm spacer. Had to mod some of the spring plate hardware on the driver side too.

^ my plan was to run 7R's on the rear of my '72 - I thought they were a straight fit though. Glad you shared this - I may need to work with Harvey on custom offset.

Great looking car. Keep us updated with the changes and mods you do.
I have never driven a 2.7 but it sounds like you have been happy with the power/torque/speed of it. I need to get my hands on a long hood.

I too thought that they were a straight fit, with spacers. From what I read, I got some 15 mm spacers to use, but when my shop went to use them, they found a narrower spacer needed. They also found one of the spring plate bolts was too close to the wheel, so they ground it down a slight bit for clearance. I think this may be because I am using sway-away adjustable plates, not stock, so they may be a little thicker than the stock spring plates.

I also went out and measured and they are 6mm spacers.

Good to know - appreciate the info. I am using stock spring plates.

When using 7" rear there is a bit of leeway
On my '72 back in the day before I added RS flares, I used 7ET23.3(usually a front) w/ 215/60 x15 tires, w/ stock suspension and alignment they rubbed a coulle of inches up above the lip on full compression. The usual solution would be to use a shorter tire, and/or add more neg camber or use a stiffer suspension. The factory went to the 7R w/ ET49 but other wise the same tube type rim as the then current 7ET23.3. W/o a spacer the backspace is maxed out(~6") and the tire hits the suspension bolts on the inside. Factory use 6.5 to 16mm spacers to solve that problem, the spacer used depended on the tire

Here's a comparison of using a 7ET23.3 rear w/ a 7ET49 w/ 7mm spacer for ET42
