  1. O.K. everybody I have an idea. Big Blue is in a bad way currently after the wreck and doesn't even have a daily driver now. How about we all chip in say $20 each and give a fellow Mustanger a helping hand so he can save his car and get back on the road as soon as possible. If you feel like donating more I'm sure it won't go unappreciated and Kharma is a wonderful thing, someday it will come back ten fold if you ever need help. Let's say that 100 of us donate $20 each, BB will have enough coin to buy a decent donor car and none of us is going to miss $20 really. I would like to see a couple of hundred guys do this as then he will be a long way to fixing the car. We can use paypal or just drop a check in the mail. Whatcha all say? Please respond here and I'll try to organize things and help this guy out. Either way I'm sending him my donation.
  2. I use Haggarty to insure all my collector cars. 3 Lincoln's and a Caddy here for $329 and total value of $20,000 and one Linc in FL for $237 for a value of $5000.
  3. Here is a pretty nice looking donor car for $2K and it's right outside your back door. http://miami.craigslist.org/mdc/cto/3995597935.html
  4. He also has the LF fender as a NOS part. The bonus is that he is in Pensacola so you could make a quick road trip and pick up the parts yourself and save on the shipping.

  5. Oh man, that is really great to hear. After I assess the damage this weekend I'm going to be on full parts-search mode, so if i find anything along your route I will definitely let you know. I truly appreciate it, this site really does have the best members of any forum. Sure just let me know. The rest of the guys near my route start looking for parts for him and let's get this car up and running again!
  6. Wow I'm so sorry about your car but glad you're alright. Whre abouts in FL are you? I'll be headed down to the space coast area at the end of Oct. I'll be eastbound from Buffalo on the I-90 then south bound on the I-79 through Pittsburgh to the I-77 and southbound through WV, VA, NC and SC to Columbia SC, then eastbound on the I-26 to the I-95 southbound to Titusville. If you line up any parts that will be close to my route I would be willing to pick them up and transport them down to you. BTW I'll be driving a full size F-450 and should have room for fenders,hood and 1/4's etc. PM me if you get anything worked out and I'll give you a phone number and we can work it out.
  7. Well the listing has ended and the seller declined two offers from the same buyer, 9,500 and 11,000. I guess he will hold out for more and relist it again.
  8. I'm not interested in buying this car. I thought maybe somebody else might be so I put in out here. It would make a neat museum piece or maybe even a restored trailer queen for shows etc. I'm not keen on the color or level of options. It's somewhat a plain jane model IMHO. I agree with what evryone is saying regarding price though. If I was to offer on the car I was thinking closer to the $10K mark as it will require both paint and mechanical work to bring it back.
  9. Anybody watching this car? Less than 12K on it. Look closely and you'll see the factory rad hoses and clamps plus I think the original muffler too. It has some minor scuffing on the RF fender but all original paint. Whatcha all think - overpriced? Edit whoops I forgot the link. My bad. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1973-Ford-Mustang-Base-Convertible-2-Door-5-8L-/151114361833?_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&forcev4exp=true
  10. Here you go. This is what mine looks like. It locks with the truck key.There also a photo on page 17 on the 1973 ford dealer guide and its part of the protection group. John J I have the same spare tire lock on my 73 Lincoln Continental Town Car. I'd bet good money the part is interchangeable on any FOMOCO product.
  11. Some parts are new repops and the quarter is a good orig part. If you wanted the car, I would reinstall motor and body panels. It wouldn't run but could be shipped as a "roller'. Its a matching number Sprint so I think its worth $2,500 even in its current state. If you think its not worth that, no biggie. PM sent
  12. To paraphase an infamous line from The Teasures of the Sierra Madre: “Titles? We ain’t got no Titles! We don’t need no Titles! I don’t have to show you any stinking Titles!” :D
  13. I'll keep it in mind, but my first thought is that shipping a car that is in pieces would be far too expensive for me to even consider the car at that price.You would probably be insulted at what I would consider offering you for the car so I won't do that. Are the parts you have NOS, repop's or used pieces?
  14. A very well optioned car too, it even comes with the hardly ever ordered driver's seat fuel tank!:D You don't even have to get out of the car to refuel and it doubles as cooled seats in the summer.
  15. Hi Mike I'll keep it in mind. Your time frame of this winter might not work. Actually I haven't even purchased the car yet. It is currently owned by a restoration shop who will only sell it to a customer that will hire them to do the car. he tells me that it will be at least a year before he can start on the car. I'll be going to see him next week and will know more then.
  16. Hi I'm guessing from reading your threads the car is in pieces now. Engine/trans out, fenders and hood removed. can you give me a little more info on the condition and your asking price please?
  17. Yup saw that one too. It was second on my list. No flys on me huh!:rolleyes: I was going to call on both of those cars until I spoke to the guy who has one locally. I'll be going to see it next week and talk about the restoration job. I'm waiting until I see how that goes and then maybe call on those cars and go from there. This one looks like the best one for condition and options but it's so far away from me. http://austin.craigslist.org/cto/3965133960.html
  18. Thanks for the link. I did actually find that car during my extensive CL search. It was the top of my list of possible contenders. What led me to be not too interested was the claim that it was "restored" 8 yrs ago and it's rusting out. There are no pics of the interior, probably because it is in sorry condition. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that decal too low on the 1/4? I was also suspicious of the mark or crack? in front of the 1/4 marker light. Looks like a huge crack in the bondo when the car was "restored".
  19. I stumbled across this site while doing some net research: http://www.forelpublishing.com/estore/scripts/prodList.asp?idCategory=145 They offer MPC'S (master parts catalogs), shop manulas, wiring and vacuum diagrams and body and parts pictorals. They sell in either digital or CD formats. I have the MPC's for Mercury/Lincolns from 1958 to 1989. Ithas been invaluable in my search for parts. BTW I can look up something about Cougars which should for the most part interchange with the stangs, if anyone is looking for a P/N. These sites are great in sourcing out hard to find parts: http://www.rearcounter.com/ http://www.partsvoice.com/ I find rear counter the best though sometimes partsvoice finds things not on the rear counter site. Hope this helps you all find some parts.
  20. Yeah it's amazing how many people come down with a 24 hr virus on the Thursday night before each long weekend and miraculously recover on Friday right after their company closes for the day.:D
  21. You know we up here in the great white north have the same holiday weekend as the rest of North America. I hope everybody has a great holiday. I'll be working all weekend and look forward to Tuesday when the season is over and I can get some rest and relaxation. Actually I'm really looking forward to November when I'm closed for the winter and can get some work done on my cars and trailers etc.
  22. Hi all I'm trying to return a 1972 coupe back to it's original setup. Currently the car has been modified with an auto transmission (not sure if it is a FMX/C4 or C6). I'll find that out once I get eyes on the car. If your car has the 302 2V engine (F code) and has a manual 3 speed transmission (1 code) built in March 1972 (xxC code) and would be interested in trading the 3 speed manual transmission for this automatic transmission let me know. The transmission plate should read RAN CA 1 for a transmission built after december 1st 1971. Secondly from what I am given to understand the axle has been changed out of a 9" one. Again if your car has the 302 2V engine (F code) and has an 8" axle with a ratio of 2.79:1 (code 3) and would like this 9" axle let me know. The axle tag should read WCZ-V for an axle built before Dec 15th 1972 or possibly WCZ-V2 for an axle built after Dec 15th 1972. If anybody is parting out a car with either the 3 speed manual transmission (code1) or the 2.79:1 ratio 8" axle (3 code) contact me also. I'm in no hurry to do this so I can wait until you are ready for the swap or sell your parts.

  24. Welcome Clyde. I'm also from Ontario and will be getting a sprint done as well. Tell us about your car! Is it a Canadian Sprint? Please post some pictures and info on the car. Look here for some more information about these rare cars, also list your car on the registry. http://www.lovingcreek.com/sprint/03/2F03F184272/index.htm
