  3. I see some chrome pieces I don't know exactly what you have there but I need the Mach 1 lower chrome body trim, that runs just above the bottom black out
  4. I picked up a black J code a few years back from the west coast, but it has a black interior and was an automatic. Original sold in Washington, but I found a speed shop receipt under the carpet from the early 80's from a shop in California.

  9. What would be factory correct for the "429 ram air" on the hood, decal or paint? I see Graphic express sells the decal as well as a stencil.
  10. I read on the 429 Mustang and Cougar Mega site that the engine bracket that mounts to the frame is a little bit taller then one for a 351c, but they don't list any dimensions. Form the picture it looks to be about a 1/2" or 3/4" difference. It states "The top surface of the 351 frame mount is just a little bit taller than the 429 frame mount. This taller height will prevent the 429 insulator from dropping down far enough to properly line up with the thru-bolt holes". I have an original 429 car that came with a 351c. Now I am getting ready to put a 429 engine in it. I have the motor mounts that came with the car, but I don't know if they are 351c or 429. Can someone measure the height of their mount either a 351c or a 429. That way I would know what I have. thanks
  11. Anyone try the progress coil springs? I have a big block and am thinking about it?
  12. Looks like that is what I need to buy. thanks
  13. I dismantled my car and didn't take pictures before hand. I am installing the wiring harness in the engine compartment and I need help. Can some post pictures of how the wires get routed through the radiator support and head light buckets for the sport lights, side marker lights and lower valance lights. Also, how the harness wraps around/under/through the battery tray on its way to the starter solenoid? thanks
  14. Thanks to all. I am getting mine painted, should I use semi-gloss or a satin finish
  15. What is the factory color of the bumper reinforcement panel? (This is the panel that sits above the bumper) Body color or engine compartment color?
  16. This is a very good discussion. Thanks to all Looks like I will have to do a little more research.
  17. Who has the best repo weather stripping out there? I need to replace all of mine. trunk, doors, windows. I hear Steel Rubber has a good reputation. I see NPD has theirs marked as "Concourse Quality". California Mustang lists theirs as "Premium". CJ's does say anything as to quality. NOS is available at a hefty price but I thought I read where someone bought a NOS piece only to find out after 40 years in a box it was dry rotted, so I am a little concerned about that. What have you all had success with as being the closest match to the factory fit?
  18. Wanting to buy the thin chrome trim that runs along the lower break in the door, quarter panel and fender for a 1971 Mach 1. My car came as a non side strip Mach 1, as such it had the chrome trim along the lower part.
  19. I recently purchased a 1971 Mustang 429scj that is missing its original engine and C-6 transmission. I am looking to restore it. Anyone know of an engine and C-6 transmission for sale?
  20. I am looking for someone to rebuilt my tilt steering column. any suggestions?
  21. I am getting ready to insulate my interior. What is the best approach, Dynamat or Lizard Skin?
  22. I have a 71 Mach 1 with the fold down rear seat and the previous owner cut speaker holes in the plastic trim that separates the rear seats and trunk. I would like to restore the car. I am in the market for replacements that are not cut. It is a black interior.
