  1. Just one bar on RH side for vert and coupe. You can take a LH from a Cougar and add if you have a spoiler to keep lid up. I sold the two that I had to members. There is a safe way to put the torsion bars in without any danger. I did a write up years back on here.
  2. Here is a picture of the Factory Invoice that was suggest you get along with the Marti report. The invoice is $25.00 I think and there is only one per car. You can see at the top what was included with the Mach 1 option which was actually an appearance package. You have to buy options to get performance. There is a new copy of the door sticker on the invoice also I forget what they cost.
  3. You might be surprised and locate the car. A local guy here purchased a Boss 429 one of the first 50 that had two build sheets one with 428 and one with Boss 429. He got a pretty good deal on it due the engine number did not match the VIN#. Back then if you complained to Ford about the sorry performance of the Boss 429 the dealer was instructed to pull the engine and send to Holman Moody and they would spice it up some to make the customer happy. H&M did not keep them in order would just send the next one that was ready so they got mixed up. I guess he was on the Boss registry and he recei
  4. I have 72 & 73 and yes the pulley on the PS pump was smaller diameter on my 73 Mach 1 Q code with AC. Do not know why but it is smaller dia..
  5. Welcome to the Forum from North Carolina. I have a 12,000 mile original 1973 Mach 1 I ordered new so might can answer some questions if you have any. Glad you held on to it. I know how life gets in the way and puts the cars on the back burner for sure. This one sat in barn for 38 years before I pulled it back out and cleaned it up.
  6. Welcome to the Forum from North Carolina. What are your questions? I have a 72 Q Mach 1 and vert. Also this 73 Mach 1 that has pretty much every option 41 total. Original not restored.
  7. I see people load a car on car trailer backwards which is scary. That buss is pretty heavy probably ok. My brother in law died in crash caused by them loading too much camping gear in the back of boat on trailer. At 35 mph started to fish tail and turned his chevy PU sideways and hit a bank. He would not wear a seat belt so he went through the windshield and steering wheel crushed his chest died immediately. His wife and his brother also where thrown out and barely survived. His mother was behind them when it happened and saw it all.
  8. I also laughed at the NASCAR. I was working in engine shop back in the 60's and the owner's brother Jack Ingram was big into NASCAR Sportsman racing. That is your local tracks and he had won the national championship 7 years in a row. He decided to build a car and run NASCAR Grand National it was called back then. Was about 1968 or so. He built a Chevelle and went to Charlotte for his first race in the big time. He qualified for the pole position and David Pearson was next. He got called into the office and Bill France was there along with the track owner. Jack said he sat down and Bill told h
  9. I had gone and filled up on Sunday and then drove to Kingsport Tenn. to get the player piano with car trailer. I was shocked at my gas mileage was only one more mile to the gallon with empty car trailer than with my Mach 1 in it. But in Tenn. they had gas everywhere and no lines. I did fill up when I got there and should have before I crossed to N.C.. Got home the two stations that had gas had lines a 1/4 long waiting. Like in was in 1974. I had signed up for a first generation mustang show at the Mustang Owner's Museum on Saturday but will have to see how the supply goes. I have not turned
  10. If your shoes in the rear are new they probably do not match the diameter of the drum and will be way less effective. If you look at the face of the shoe is it worn all the way around of just in smaller area. They do make a machine for grinding the shoe to fit usually only old shops will still have them. Here is pic of mine. The rear shoes automatic adjust. If you back up and go maybe 10 mph and hit brakes hard several times that adjusts the shoes out.
  11. The piston diameter on the master cylinder for 1973 disc / drum PB should be 15/16". If all 4 are drums they had a 1" dia. master cylinder.
  12. I know it sounds harsh but I cleaned my white comfort weave with lacquer thinner and tooth brush and then wipe with micro fiber. I tried everything and nothing was doing it so lacquer thinner on door panels and seats.
  13. The other day I was bouncing around E-bay and found a NOS vapor canister hose that was for 73. I thought they were all the same but maybe not. So I bid on it and dropped out at $20.00, I am cheap, lol. Got notice in email this morning it sold for $172.50 plus the shipping. WOW, he must be doing a concourse restore of something. That is crazy price I think. Here is link does not look like a joke bidder either. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-FORD-D4ZZ-9D667-A-1973-79-MUSTANG-VAPOR-STORAGE-CANNISTER-HOSE-/324601727679?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l10137.c10&nordt=true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true
  14. Lots of great work and congratulations on the new son. Be careful using gasoline to clean parts just a spark and boom. Next time give oven cleaner a try on difficult to remove grease. Noticed your rear drums are different from what is on my 73 Mach 1. Here is pic of mine.
  15. I had never taken the 73 Mach 1 out of the enclosed car trailer since going to the P.I.T.S. show in Tenn. My neck and shoulder do not like changing four tires. I have original Goodyear RWL tires for the shows but have to drive about 200 yards on driveway so need to change to rollers. So me being the guy that loves mechanical things I already have two player pianos one in home and one in the shop. I was looking around for some new rolls to play and up came this beautiful player piano in Kingsport Tenn. two hours away. It was free to a deserving person. So I got in touch. It was quite a proces
