  1. Found the VIN in another add. This says car is original Mint Green. If so, it's a custom order. https://classiccars.com/listings/view/1015706/1972-ford-mustang-mach-1-fastback-for-sale-in-tempe-arizona-85283
  2. You sure about that? Originally, the rockers were painted black. The paint wrapped into the door jam a bit and covered the bottom of the door sill as well. The small stripe above it was a decal but it wasn't on the decor group, only on the side-striped cars. The decor group had a thin molding along the edge of the paint (10pcs).
  3. That's for 69-70 Cougar. My friend has a 70 XR7. Not sure what 69-70 mustangs had.
  4. The exterior decor group came with Lower body side paint with chrome molding. Honeycomb grille and sportlamps. Color-keyed front bumper. Color-keyed hood and fender moldings. Flat brushed-aluminum hub caps with trim rings. The molding is low on the car separating the 2 tone.
  5. Thanks all, good info. Looking at the picture Mister 4x4 posted, the pieces might slide left or right and come off. I will dig into it. I have a new set to put back on but want to save and polish the old ones, they are not too bad.
  6. I did a search but didn't see anything. What is the safest method to remove the 10 piece decor group molding pieces? A picture of the clips looks like they are spring loaded? Thanks
  7. Thanks for checking Thanks but looking for one in decent shape.
  8. It was always my understanding that competition suspension package is heavy duty springs and shocks. ...and the staggered shocks and sway bar was just a standard configuration for 4V cars. I read a lot, doesn't mean it's true :-)
  9. Yes, there is a single wire going to both retractors and one going to the pressure switch on passenger seat. My car was built 4/72 in Dearborn.
  10. NO LONGER NEEDED, THANKS I am looking for a drivers side (LH) interior a pillar trim piece for a fastback. Color not that important. Please let me know if you have an extra one I could buy. Picture below for reference. I read many reviews on the re-pops that say they don't fit at the bottom. Thanks!
  11. Thank you for the tips, very helpful. I will dig into it next weekend.
  12. I'm freshening up my 72. One of the things I always wanted to do was get the seat belt warning system working as it did from factory. The previous owner removed the buzzer and the light was broken. So, I got a new seat belt light and buzzer. I started the car with seat belt off. Put it in gear and the light and buzzer comes on, perfect! I latched the drivers seat belt and it stays on :chin: Nobody was in the passenger seat but I latched that one just in case. Still buzzzzz. Has anyone diagnosed this type of problem? I guess I should start by looking in the seat belt retractor? Thanks
  13. Very nice car if the rest looks like the pictures. Book value for "very good" is 30-45k, with 45 being pristine original. Take off of that 20-30% for non-numbers matching, although it is a correct cleveland. Take off more if the car wasn't black originally. 73 Q code did not come with ram air, just an FYI. How much is it worth? Whatever someone is willing to pay :-) If you just want a good looking cruiser, you can find a cheaper car in my opinion.
  14. You might have to take a dremel tool or similar and grind a nice groove in it almost all the way to the threads, then split it with a chisel.
