  1. not yet, there's no factory add- ons like an EFI, or running lights etc
  2. thanks much, great info. it's always something! I discovered there's no fuel line from the carb to the fuel pump. and just like my 71 I need a new ignition cylinder and ignition switch.
  3. Great info, thanks. So the speed cable connects to …?
  4. Need help identifying where these two go. The first smaller red wire, with the yellow end, middle of first picture, is attached to the left of the voltage regulator on my 73 'vert 302, need to know where the other end goes, the wire is kinda long. (This connection is not found on my 71 351c) .The second is possible an O2 sensor? but not sure where it connects to.
  5. Because, like Lee said "They're a fat pig!". Actually it was price to buy my 71 ($1400) and my 73 ($1000). But have really come to like the big size and the uniqueness. This site also helps tremendously in liking them more!
  6. Nice vert , similar to mine. My wife actually found the vert, and said to buy it! Now if we can find a fastback my trifecta would be complete.
  7. great info, thanks to all, go have a beer!
  8. ok, just seems weird. cause the mechanic says its not the sending unit, which would make more sense. So it's a hose? Thanks Don C
  9. On top of the fuel tank (on a 71) the unit that allows for return fuel. Is it some type of pump or unit, if so what's the correct name so I can order one? It's not the sending unit, that's what I mis-rdered. Thanks.
  10. interesting tri-fecta. I'm close with a 71 and 73. My trifecta would be coupe, convertible and fastback. So, for me 2 out of 3 once again, just need a 72 sportsroof/fastback.
  11. I have the same deal with my 73 'vert. SMS does have the color, but for one seat, which i need, it was going to be around $400. I'm going to switch my interior over to all white, for the same price.
  12. that looks very similar to the green 73 'vert I bought for $1K!
  13. If you're not much of a welder, I've used short thread fiberglass well in some smaller holes.
  14. i recently had this too, without the misc. parts falling out. I did get a whole new switch. It's less than $15. If you go that route, you'll need to pull the steering wheel off. You can get a steering wheel puller from Auto Zone on a free loan. It's suggested loosening the main bolt, but not removing it all the way, in case your steering wheel really pops off! I had to play with my new switch for a while to get it to stay in, but eventually it did.
  15. i got a price of $280, windshield with installation for my 73 'vert, i think that's fair
  16. Mustang #3 for me was a 69 coupe. I got it for $1600 back in 95, when i got it home to clean it up I vacuumed a gazillion pine needles, from a Christmas tree. Yes, the PO transported a Christmas tree in the backseat.
  17. dryer sheets do work well to repel critters. Also sprinkle ground coffee all over the place, that will absorb the smell adequately.
  18. Having owned 5 Mustangs (with #'s 4+5 in the barn now) and never having found a Mach or Fastback/ Sportsroof, it's a no-brainer if it were me!
  19. forgive me for not knowing the correct terminology here, on the crank that raises the window there is a little ball, in my case it was yellow, on the crank , that snaps into the track that attaches to the window. Mine broke into pieces as I was trying to insert it back into the track. Is this part available or has someone here managed a modification to fix this? my 73 vert thanks you!
  20. I got my first car, a 67 Mustang Coupe about two weeks before my senior year started. It was red with a white vinyl top,289, and has this nice white steering wheel. Somehow it also had a jaguar interior in it! It fit, and one of the previous owners put it in. Sadly two days before Christmas that year someone rear ended me at a red light, plowed me into the car in front of me and took off. My 67 was squashed like an accordion.
  21. I had to replace the ignition cylinder on the steering column. Got one from Missouri Mustangs for a decent price, problem solved.
  22. Sad he waited so long to list it, and even sadder he didn't cover it.
  23. https://twintiers.craigslist.org/cto/6104894044.html This one is for sale near me from the same guy I bought my 73 from. This is strictly parts, it's been sitting out in the elements for a couple of years. I think it could be had for $500
  24. I met BILL73 RAGTOP a few years ago, he was the one who turned me on to this site!
