  1. Here you go...you will also need the special clips but they sell them now... https://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_mustang/ford-mustang-radiator-air-deflector-clips-set.html https://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_mustang/ford-mustang-radiator-air-deflector-used-with-26-wide-radiator.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=paid_search&utm_campaign=paid_search_google_pla&adpos=1o4&scid=scplp44-48391-1&sc_intid=44-48391-1&gclid=CjwKCAiAo8jgBRAVEiwAJUXKqNnVy0d1GRHq4BQ3S15ceOfLZo3u3gbqpkIQNBYdc_1YhTB7RPwVAxoCJLwQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  2. Tony, Cars with A/C originally came from the factory with a plastic piece that clipped on the radiator to fill that gap. They are now reproduced and many of the vendors sell them. See pic below from my 72 Q code.
  3. Here is one... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1971-1972-Mustang-Short-console-with-ash-tray/390210340481?hash=item5ada594681:g:C9IAAOxyPLpRfMdd
  4. Very interesting...was not aware of this. I would be really curious to see now if anyone has an original paint 71 and 72 and what the answer is on those. Thanks for sharing everyone.
  5. Thanks Jeff. I saw this type too, it is filled with foam, and I know foam breaks down over time and faster when it gets hot. I am looking to see if anyone may have purchased a new spoiler in the last year or two and if they had any input. Here is another one from NPD that is Concourse correct. Make sure to read the PDF at the bottom of page for more info... https://www.npdlink.com/product/rear-deck-spoiler-kit-concours-approved-repro-by/152104?backurl=search%2Fproducts%3Fsearch_terms%3Drear%252Bspoiler%26top_parent%3D1%26year%3D1971&year=1971
  6. Here is another option made out of ABS which is probably pretty strong....no idea which is the best one though. http://www.mustangsunlimited.com/Mustang/Body/Spoilers/Rear/Rear-Wing-Spoiler-ABS-Plastic-1971-1973-Mustang-Cougar.axd
  7. Hi John, Here is the torque converter specs for a stock 73 Q code, doubt the 72 is much different.
  8. To save on costs, why not remove and replace the trans yourself and just pay for the rebuild? It is pretty straight forward and lots of info here on how to do it. Good luck.
  9. Pics and part numbers in this post... https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-interior-light-in-convert?highlight=courtesy
  10. Great post and info David, thanks for sharing. Not sure I like the look of the argent bumper and rear insert though lol. BTW...what are the round plastic pieces on the side of the black door?
  11. That turned out really nice, keep us updated with more pics as you make progress.
  12. Steve...that 6B Light Yellow Gold sure looks a lot like my 6F Gold Glow?
  13. If you had some more basics on what you are looking for you will get some more help... What body style? Fastback only? Engine...V8 only? 2V or 4V? Original matching numbers only? Does car drive now or do you just care about it being complete? Restoration to original or whatever? Most important...what is your budget for car? This will help everyone out and if they see something will call your attention to it.
  14. I put it in my 73 Mach 1 and was very happy with how it fit and looks. I let it sit in the hot sun for about four hours before I did the install. I purchased from Rockauto for $100 if I recall. Good luck...
  15. David and John, The white comfort weave interiors in both your cars is really nice looking. I am with David here in that there is no way this is a 16k miles original car, probably 116k. He does not say that it has original paint.
  16. Car probably originally from CA, now registered in FL. Guy says he's owned it for many years, so the one with the Ford frt plate could be older. This is not an original CA car as the invoice does not have the $13.87 California Emissions Testing line item. Also, the black and yellow CA license plate on front of car is not correct and could never have been used on this car. The black and yellow plate was used until 1969 and then switched to a blue and yellow as seen below. Trivia I know, but wonder what the real story is on this car.
  17. David, Agree on the 73's...on the 72 Q code convertibles they also got the turn down exhaust system. Not sure if the chrome tips were limited to fastbacks in 71/72?
  18. First is the 351 4V diagram and second is the 2V.
  19. Couple of my cars... 1973 Q Code Mach 1 and 1972 Q Code Convertible...both restored to factory original. User ID jeff8877 location So Cal.
  20. I had the exact same issue. I put some grease in and that did the trick.
  21. I would go this route... Buy a remanufactured OEM compressor with clutch from here. They have a $50 off coupon now so cost would be $200 shipped with no tax. Make sure you pull off your original part tag so you can put on new unit. https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/driveworks-reman-york-209-210-compressor-w-clutch-dw57022/5890381-P?searchTerm=a%2Fc+compressor+w%2FclutchBuy Then as David said rebuild your under dash unit yourself, not really hard you just need a $20 gasket kit. The hardest part is getting it out and then back in. Buy the new hoses and you have a rebuilt unit for pretty reasonable.
  22. Guys, The intake can't possibly be original to the car with a 2E date code which is May 1972 and this car had a February 73 build date. Interesting that a May 72 part has a D3 (1973) stamping on it? Curious to what you all think.
