  1. I am posting this for a friend. He is looking to locate his old Mustang. It was a 1965 Fastback, red on red, vin #5F09A732298. It's drive train was converted to a 289 hipo (k code) train with a 9"rear end. Last known location was in the state of Georgia. Any and all leads will be followed up on. Thanks for your help. Mac
  2. RocketFoot, If you place another order for shirts. I would like a gray large one. Mac
  3. Shaheenk, It was nice of you to rebuild your Dad's Mustang for him. I'm sure that he was pleased with your efforts more than the actual rebuilding of car itself. I was amazed that the person you had mentioned that was suppose to rebuild the car actually ended up stripping it instead. Have you considered taking him to court? In your search for parts and rebuilding info (i.e. correct fasteners), is there any Mustang clubs close by you? Have you searched this web site for other members close to you? Look up the MCA (Mustang Club of America) on the web. They have listings of regional groups all over the world, maybe one close to you. They also list national judges by year of certification with contact info. Again another source of info to consider. If you Dad has already driven the car, sounds like you are "almost there" and should be congradulated on your efforts!! Mac
  4. A reply from member Shaheenk located in South Africa brought up a very good point. We are spoiled as owners of our cars here in America. There are plently of sources for parts available to us, both commerical and private. Never really thought about how others living in other countries manage to maintain and keep their cars running. I know that there are several members of this site who live in other countries, it would be very interesting to hear about their experiences in the collector hobby in their country, popular brands / models and how they obtain parts and service there.

  5. Just wondering, how many current 71-73 owners would actually "rebuy" a 71-73 again if they had the chance to buy their car again. Myself I bought my car in the spring of '72 as a demo with 5,000 miles on it. The price was right ($2995) but I wasn't wild about the options. Would have preferred a 69 or 70 big block, 4-speed car, possibly Shelby if available. However history speaks for itself, I bought my car and still have it, but if money and circumstances (can you say wife) allow, I would love to add a '69 shelby to my garage. How about you? Mac
  6. Not sure who to direct this too, Rocketman maybe? Anyway is there any 7173 tee shirts available? If not, is there plans to make more? I'm sure that there would be enough interest for a second run. Thanks! Mac
  7. After searching high and low on the internet. The cheapest price there was $79 (plus shipping) for a set that was just ok but would need to be repainted. However attending a local small swap meet here by me, I found a set that was in great shape, no need for repaint for $22. I guess the moral of this is don't rely on just the internet for things. It is very accessable but not always the best quality or lowest price.
  8. Interested in both rear view mirrors. Please send close up pic's. Thanks! Mac
  9. I am the original owner of my 71 Mach, but like many other members I own other Mustangs. Currently finishing up restoration of my 66 convertible and hoping that some other members may have the lower front windshield trim that is between the dash pad and the window itself. I believe that this is a 2 piece item. If you have this please contact me with condition and price. Thanks! Mac
  10. Just wondering. How many members gave their car a name? For myself, I've owned my 71 Mach since new and my family, friends and myself have always refered to it as, "The Mach". I do have other friends with Mustangs who also given them names. What do you call yours? Mac
  11. The following is an ad that appeared in my local newspaper in Canfield, Ohio today. I am not selling this car, I do not have any other info other than what the ad states. I'm only passing this on for your info.: "1973 Mustang - Coupe - Brown with brown vinyl top, saddle interior, only 23k actual miles. A real nice car. Asking only $10,500. (330) 651-2393. Mac
  12. Bottom line, comes time to sell, it is only worth as much as your buyer is willing to pay.
  13. Auto spell checked butchered my first sentence. It should say, This past spring I changed my seal and oring.......
  14. This past spring I changed my sale and of ring on my FMX trans for a total of $8 for a new seal and Oring plus trans fluid and filter. Having never do this before I took detailed notes and pictures. These instructions can be found in this sites Tech Forum in the General Maintenance and Repairs section. Look on page 5 for article Changing a Shifter Seal and Oring on FMX Trans. Not to hard to do. Worst part is getting the small bullet shaped plunger back in place. Good luck!
  15. .....Retired.....Under New Management.....For Details Contact My Wife !!!
  16. You will need the map light assembly (D1WB-15650-AA). See attached pictures. These are a tough item to find. I do believe that one of the members of this site has reproduced a copy. Their name escapes me right now. Maybe another member can jump in here with this info. Good Luck! Mac
  17. Don't know if this will help, but I believe that in some states their Bureau of Motor Vehicles will provide information on previous owners to the current owner. Worth a shot anyway. Mac
  18. All, OK, if you are reading this, you either own one, thinking about one or looking for info on one. With that said, I'm sure that you like certain things/features that you like/love and like wise hate some features or things as well and would love to change. Just curious as to how you feel about your car or the 71-73's in general. Myself, I like the seats and ride of my 71 over my 66 convertible. Also like the style of it, it seems to build on the 69-70 style of the Shelby. My Mach always gets attention when I take it our for a spin. As far as hate, I joking refer to the back window as my, "sun roof that slid down". And the sport mirrors look nice but are way to small. So how do you feel about yours? Mac
  19. Interested in the intake manifold if still available. Mac
  20. How about "lo-jack" (not sure of spelling) any one with experience with this system?
  21. Do you have an alarm system in your car? What type? Costly? Are you satisfied with it? Difficult to install? Mac
  22. My opinion is that the auto manufactures have too much invested in electric cars to back out now. However I do believe that the hydrogen power vehicle is the way to go, only emission from it is water. As far as the "Mach E", I agree that trying to associate this vehicle to a Mustang is a loser. Rather if you really want to associate it with a Ford product, why not resurrect the Galaixe as "GalaixE" Mac
  23. Another Ohio Buckeye welcomes you. Good looking ride. What power train does it have?
