  2. I was looking around facebook market place and saw some 71 - 73 parts. After getting in touch I found out he had sold his Mustang collection and now selling parts he has stage 4 cancer. So I am going to hook up and we can do some drives in the mountains and make his heart race a few more times before he goes. It makes me so sad to see these. They sell their cars because family does not want and they need the money just to live a few more days. I will post up any parts he has after we meet up. Life is too short for sure.

  4. I have broken up my Mach1 project into 5 sections: rear end (trunk, bumper, tail, etc), interior, engine bay, undercarriage and then body/paint. Today I declared my engine bay part finished ( well we all know we are NEVER finished but...). Last week while I had house painters here (with hands) I had them help me remove my hood so I could paint the underside. it was full of surface rust and crud. of course I never think to take "before" pictures but you all know what I mean. Ram air was intact, just needed paint and new actuators that actually work!! First time I ever sprayed automotive

Get it back to rolling again. also rebuilt my hurst shifter! like I said lots of work...def not losing steam... just getting started ...

  9. Started my freshly rebuilt 351 Cleveland 2V on an engine run stand to break the cam in today. Started first turn over and never stalled. Ran it at about 2500 RPMs for 30 minutes, temp gauge was right around 180ish, Oil Pressure started around 80 and dropped down to about 70 when it got warmed up. Next up is to dial in the timing and carb for best performance. Here is a short 1 minute video I posted to YouTube earlier. Tom https://youtu.be/C-2toibQvPM

  10. After declaring my engine bay finished (see separate thread) I took my car for a shakedown drive, first time in 5 months, just 25 miles. I was concerned after repairing the radiator, putting in new PS pump, alt, belts, this and that how it would run but she ran fine. I was a bit concerned when I checked a couple of times and then when I got home that NOTHING was leaking. I always thought with old cars if it is not leaking it must be empty but all my fluids check out ok.

  11. Hi Geoff speeding is possible with a classic Mustang too. A friend of mine was a little bit in a hurry on his way home in his 69 Mach1. The scale on the speedometer wasn't enough. By the way, it wasn't illegal. Happened in Germany on an unlimited Autobahn. Cheers Frank VID-20191017-WA0005.mp4

  14. Up and running at last. Primed the oil and fuel and fired it up for the first time yesterday. Started on the first crank and after a slight timing adjustment, runs great. Went for a spin round the block today. Still a few things to tidy up, wheel alignment, brake bleed and check all the electrical after the complete re-wire, full tune-up etc. Took a bit longer on the final assembly as the car came in pieces and being my first Mustang, I learnt the hard way which pieces need to go in first. Some of the reproduction items also don't fit exactly but with adjustments it all came together well. One

  20. Both front eye bolts on mine were frozen solid. Even a gas torch didn't move them and not much room for a big hammer. Sitting on the shelf in the shed was this small bottle jack I made years ago during a trade course. I was never sure what it would ever be used for but with a strip of steel against the back of the rocker panel it fitted nicely against the eye bolt. After plenty of penetrating oil, the jack pushed the bolts through. Still took a lot or force on the adjusting nut to break the bolts free. So my motto has always been, never throw anything out, it may come in handy one day.

  26. I just created a new Youtube Channel for the forums! You should be able to upload videos directly to the new channel to make it easier to post videos on the forums! A lot of people don't have their own Youtube channel so this community channel will allow you to upload without having to create your own channel! So go ahead and test it out for me! Upload your walk around videos, burn out videos and any other 71-73 related content you would like and lets see if we can build a cool Youtube Video Channel! Once you upload, just grab the link from Youtube and you can paste it in the forum p

  27. Here's the other side number B.This one went a little easier,but still took the same amount of time.I'm not going to finish all of the welds flush. I was just going to run over them all with a 36 grit disc to knock off all the high and sharp spots,just to smooth out all the welds and see how I like it. The whole interior is going to be painted with Zolatone ,probably the black with grey and white spatter.

  29. Congrats, looks like a solid car with a very nice colour! (no everybody will agree tho) Bits surprised its a fastback btw, as you told you'd sold the green one for a vert... EDIT: I was having same issue with my t-bird the first 2 years I had it, where the heavy mirror would fall off the moment you'd touch it, being parked in sun or simply drive on a crappy road.. I've found THE glue after trying 3 others supposed to be made for the job but that failed that you should be able to find in Europe. I'll msg you the details per dm.

  31. Drove my car this weekend and had a blast. I found some country roads along some farm fields that are awesome. BTW, our farm field roads here are like 1/2 a mile straight a 90 degree turn and then another 1/2 a mile. They can follow that pattern forever. Some of the 90 degree turns have decent banking and a lot of them have good visibility to know if there are cars coming. Needless to say I always follow the speed limit

  34. After a run like that he'll be lucky to make it home to plug it in for 3 or 4 hours to re-fuel (charge) it. The same principals apply to electric vehicles, a heavy foot means more consumption, less range.

  37. Like I said,the rears are 15x10 with a 5'' backspace and the fronts are 15x8 with a 4 1/4'' backspace.I wanted less backspacing in the front so I have more caliper and ball joint clearance and not deal with spacers,which was common.Allan Moffats car ran 8s and 10s in the 70s and I think the car is still set up that way. As for tires the correct Goodyears are still made. the fronts would have been a 6.00x15 and the rears 8.00x15.Hoosier makes nice tires as well. The problem with bias racing tires is they sorta have a short shelf life before dry rot and sidewall cracks.I have this problem with t

  38. I have done it by myself with the help of a bicycle hoist. I installed two above the hood. I lifted the hood with the hoists and left the hood stored on top for about a year while I did my work. Then used the hoists to lower the hood in position and reinstall. I used these ones ($30 for two of them): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003TFOPJA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I installed two in parallel and connected the hooks with ropes. The hood was held by the cross ropes. I also used padding between the ropes and hood. I had the rear cross rope held by the scr

  39. Finally drove my 73 after many many many years!! Brought it to painter where i've removed more stuffs (door handles, locks etc..). I've painted the car from the inside out and prepped it fine wet sanded to 2500. As I've never drove it with the snipper, renewed engine, rear end, brakes etc... I was kinda nervous something would happen (read very very nervous as I'm also not allowed to drive it before it has passed the tech control). Oh boy that was so good! with the 4 windows down (roof rails are ofc out and glass not guided), the sound going thru the 2.5 stainless exhaust free flow.. sti
