  1. https://7173mustangs.com/forums/tutorials/article/34-urethane-front-bumper-repair/
  2. Mike 73 will not work for 71 or 72. Even front fenders are different because of larger 73 front bumper.
  3. Yesterday I invited another Boss 351 owner to check out a car show about an hour away. Something different. Anyway only one 71-3 Mustang and it wasn't too bad. Turns out to be a pretty original car. Q code automatic. Car is said to have 130,000 miles but it has been well taken care of for that many miles. still all intact with original parts. Like 73 air breather with correct snorkel tubing and vent hose to exhaust manifold. I'll provide some pics and a phone number where owner can be reached. (sorry I didn't get an under hood shot!) I'd love to own this car but I have too many cars right now. Trying to thin the 'herd'. Car could use a strong detail and the exhaust pipes corrected with turn downs behind the valence. Very nice car. asking price $19k obo Contact owner if interested. 405-826-7353
  4. Tony - please provide link to that site. Thanks! Ray
  5. Lots of excellent info for our cars archived on this site!!!!! Many have never seen the rail cars delivering them. Ray
  6. Welcome from Oklahoma
  7. Grande only 71-3 model that ever came with a trunk mat. I leave my convertible au natural. If I have to carry some stuff I now have a moving blanket I use. Ray
  8. Thought I'd bump this. Many don't know the differences. Ray C
  9. Now you can get them with the NASA style (ram air) hood detail. Cool. Ray
  10. Does anyone have part numbers for the different 71-3 Mustang trim rings? I'd also be interested in the part number for the 15 inch ones you mention originally intended for the vans? Secluff maybe? I THINK there were two different 14 inch trim rings offered, I guess one standard and the other just a little wider? So the wider one would go with the 14x7 option and the other with the smaller standard wheel????? Just to throw more mud in the water - what I have seen might be originally a 14 inch trim ring off another Ford car? Possibly later Torino, Ranchero or LTD II ??? Thanks for all that continue to help in the exploration of original/correct parts for these cars. As you all can see - the "dive" can get pretty deep! Ray
  11. The Mexican Mustangs can sure throw off some of us US-built purists! No correct GT-351 stickers or is it an actual GT-351? There is quite a bit of Mexican Mustang info on this site. A few years ago I was fortunate to attend a Mustang event in Guadalajara Mexico. Got to ride in and look over a really nicely done GT-351 clone. There were a few other 71-3 cars there with one very nice red 73 sportsroof (non Mexican Sprint). Ray
  12. Got the convertible out for a local but extended drive Saturday. The weather was nice but I decided to not drop the top. Just wanted to get the car out, drive for a while, check for any issues, fill up the gas tank and just enjoy the car. Didn't want to hear anything but the 351 CJ . Didn't take any pics (should have). Got a few "thumbs up" from other motorists and passengers. Car is presentable at about 10 ft and greater. A great escape from the crazy week. I definitely enjoyed my afternoon. Ray
  13. Did you already contact Mike at "Motorcity Mustang"? They are a vendor who supports this site and have quite a few parts cars. Very reasonable. Can also check with Don at Ohio Mustang. Another supporting vendor. Currently, both of these are my preferred vendors. Ray
  14. Another old thread that might offer some ideas. Tons of old Ford radios will fit our cars but they are not all 'correct' - if that matters to you. Ray
  15. Thanks Don. Hopefully more will do the same. Ray
  16. Welcome from Oklahoma. Hope your putting it back to original color. Cool story. Ray C
  17. Apparently the old links where we all posted our Marti reports did not make the move from the old forum site to this new one. Please check to see if yours is showing up. I had to edit/update my page for the my conv. https://7173mustangs.com/forums/topic/19792-1972-mustang-conv-marti/ I'll work to do others asap. Ray
  18. bump Sure would like to find this car. Ray
  19. Boss 351 had either satin argent or satin black paint on rear tailight panel depending on exterior color with twist on cap only. Ray
  20. Matt, Unfortunately I don't have much on casting dates. But there are quite a few members on here that are very sharp on them. SVO2SCJ & Secluff both on this thread Best of luck.
  21. From what I have heard they used drum and daisywheel impact printers - both of which were line printers. A letter or call to Marti Auto Works might clear this up but I don't have the time right now. :) BTW I am dealing with OLD MEMORY myself and the storage medium (my brain) has deteriorated in quality over time. LOL Ray
  22. I believe yours is correct (or an excellent reproduction). The offset look is due to the daisywheel type printer as used by Ford back then. If you get a copy of your invoice from Marti Auto Works, you'll notice the same type of font and funky offset. Ray
  23. A lot of people confuse competition suspension with always including staggered shocks. Hemikiller's post is correct. Ray
