  1. It's ib4stangs here. I might have another spare set and will check for you. I do know I have a mint black pair for a upcoming project that I'm keeping...
  2. Your right again Midlife. I'm in Southern Maryland too and totally forgot that.lollerz Anyone want me to check this one out, lemme kno...
  3. The tip off for this bogus post is the listing addresses. Think about it, it's advertised for sale in Washington DC but the car location is stated in Hollywood, California? Plus who ever had a original 72-1/2 Sprint with a vinyl top???
  4. I believe with the privacy laws you would have to prove your identity to get that info. I'd at least try it...Md has every one of mine in file from 73 up !
  5. Go to the DMV / MVA of the last state it was registered in and do a vehicle search of cars tagged in your name...
  6. The seller's opening bid was $25 so blame the final price on bidder frenzy. I've actually got a frozen switch to work fine by applying WD-40 through the knob and waiting a week...
  7. This guy was located next to my spaces at Carlisle All Ford who does radio conversions. Contact him to see if he will just repair yours here; http://www.mikehaganantiqueautoradio.com/ Honest, qualified and a good person to know... Also another friend "Matt" on www.vintagemustang.com did Mustang radio repairs too... MMccr1239@aol.com Tell'em Pat sent you...
  8. Bragging rights to the fellow who can spot an important bit of modification in this picture. -Kurt How about the aftermarket speakers in side panels???
  9. I think you might have a slop issue with this new box. Quick check is to have a friend sit in drivers seat and with key positioned to unlock steering wheel, have him rock it back and forth a few inches (then more distance if necessary). Meanwhile, get a flashlight and observe the action from lower steering column shaft to end of pitman arm and center link. If there is play in the box you should hopefully notice it somewhere. You can also get on the ground to place your hand on pitman arm for a better feel of it when he's rockin' it. Try to adjust the worm gear if loose and test drive. Otherwise, a rebuild might be necessary Good luck and it's just a process of elimination...Pat PS, If problem persists, change out (PITA) seal on old unit and re-install...
  10. "1.In exactly ONE scene, both cars are seen at the car wash in their polar opposite forms. One mint, one wrecked." I believe I see another scene with both cars. Check right after the DJ mentions a chase happing in front of KFOX studios and before the old lady in park hits it with a umbrella. He turns a right corner and you see the rear of "Beauty Car" parked in car row on right. Then again from back seat of chase car. Another observation...no steering wheel when cops tell him to put his hands on the windshield...;-)
  11. I'm looking for some 73 blue knitted vinyl #2212 in Detroit book, trim code: GB for a 73 Mach front seat restoration. PM me if someone has or knows a source. I placed a request with SMS fabrics again and waiting. Was told some would be available last year but that never happened...Also need 2 nice blue door speaker covers.
  12. Think that seat center material appears to be correct "knitted vinyl" for a 73 Mach. I thought only 1971 type "comfort weave" was available aftermarket. Unless he found some original and had TMI custom sew it (which they will do). Also noticed the stainless bar was cocked on passengers seat. Speaking of seats (and a shameless beg)...I'm looking for some 73 blue knitted vinyl #2212 in Detroit book, trim code: GB for my 73 Mach front seat restoration. PM me if someone has or knows a source. I placed a request with SMS fabrics again and waiting. Was told some would be available last year but that never happened...
  13. I found this low mile original on eBay. Figured if he ever posts engine or under carriage photos it would be a better restoration reference... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Mustang-MACH-1-A-C-Q-CODE-4SPEED-4K-MI-ONE-OWNER-ULTRA-LOW-MILE-Q-CODE-1973-Ford-Mustang-Mach-1-/360912459121?forcerrptr=true&hash=item54080f1571&item=360912459121&pt=US_Cars_Trucks
  14. I'll second that "Mustang C.S.I." detective" nomination. I sent him a elusive right rear quarter panel patch and it was delivered. Problem was, FedEx dropped it off a few houses down from his address. Not to be denied, "Detective Kurt" found the part and box in someone else's nearby trash and retrieved it. FedEx -1 Kurt + 2
  15. As removed and still bolted together from a rusty 108K mile 73 Mustang coupe. Complete engine / trans combo for rebuilding and might sell separate. Supposedly ran fine when parked 10+ years ago and believe never taken apart. Air breather to oil pan, fan to tail shaft with all hoses / wires. Had antifreeze in sealed system and normal oil in pan. Asking $495 and is located 15 miles South of Washington DC. PM with other needs from car...
  16. Hi Super-Mustang, I just picked up this one owner 73 Mach 1 "Q" code, 4 speed, 3.25 posi, A-C. Mostly complete with clear Maryland title and original paint but is a major restoration. The motor is apart, needs a front strut cross member and hood for starters. Came with a NOS lt. rear quarter and NOS lt. front fender that could go too. Drivers rear frame rail looked untouched from hit and floors looked solid while on trailer. I didn't get a chance yet to go over thoroughly and see if restoreable but it probably would be. That's also when I'll decide on a price If interested and you don't mind driving to near Washington, DC then e-mail me direct for more info and photos...thanx
  17. Just removed from a garage kept mint 72 Grande' with around 15,500 original miles. No plugs, dry rot or cracking and are in very good condition for their age with even wear. Nice set if you have a low mile original car and don't want reproduction tires for judging/showing. I'd like to sell as a set but would consider individually for trunk spares. Best offer over $399 + shipping from near Washington, DC. This is a link with photos describing the car before current owner purchased it. He went with Torq thrust and radials and I acquired these. Salesman talks about the tires around 2:30 in video. (yes, it's not the lowest mile 72 in world) http://www.flemingsultimategarage.com/1972-ford-mustang--c-1354.htm If interested contact me direct at; ib4stangs@yahoo.com
