  1. Classic cars in China are EXTREMELY rare because you technically can't register then so you can't legally drive them. I met a man in Shanghai who had a 70 Mach 1 in his living room. It was brought into China through Vietnam in the back of a truck over dirt road trails. He told me he spent twice what the car was worth getting it into the country in transportation and bribes. You have to be both wealthy and an enthusiast to possess a classic Mustang in China.
  2. Ok, I can definitely answer the question about the tire but the console isn't as clear. Based on your Marti report your tire code is H2 with the H referring to F70X14 belted tire and the 2 standing for WSW rayon/polyester tires. Your brand of tire was not specified as the row was blank. Personally I think that the marti report definition for the code is wrong and they don't feel like changing it which leads to the tire confusion. Now for the console which isn't as straight forward. Your code is E which would lead me to believe you have a console and an am radio. I don't see any call out of long console vs. short console but since the short console was standard I would assume you would get a long console. Then you need to read the paragraph below and interpret how the clock is deployed. Thoughts?
  3. Eric - Can you post a link to your marti report so I could take a look at it as I might be able to answer a couple of your questions on how your vehicle was originally equipped.
  4. Welcome!! I also have a Japanese Mustang and would be happy to help answer any specific questions you might have regarding these unique Mustangs. There are a number of unique parts that are very hard to find on these cars so I would suggest doing some research before you start tearing them apart. I'm looking for a piece off the power antenna so if you have some spare parts I'd really like to talk to you about it. I'll send you a PM with some contacts of 71-73 Mustang owners in Japan who can probably help you out quite a bit.
  5. His example of the tach is misleading as if it is a forced option as he stated it should still be included in the total number of vehicles that were factory equipped with a tach. The system that this data resides in would consider them to be the same. While I'm extremely grateful for Kevin's marti and his service I know the data system well enough to know hat depending on them options were coded and then how's the day the data is requested will greatly affect the output. We have all seen examples of marti reports that have incorrect data on them once in a while. NOT basing his service st all but merely pointing out that nobodies perfect.
  6. Sorry, that's what I meant. I had belt on the mind as I also asked about seat belts........
  7. I would be interested in the "belt" light to the left of the steering wheel. Also might be interested in the belts if I could get some pictures

  9. Here's an image of one of the bumpers minus the part that was inserted into the seat that broke off.
  10. There are 4 small bumpers that are used when the seat is in the down position. I just can't figure out the usage as it can't just be for these. I have most of one left that I can show you. How much time do you need me for and when would you like to do the clutch?
  11. Does anyone know where I can get the 4 small round plastic bumpers that go between the fold down seat and the plastic side panels when the fold down seat is folded down? I searched and didn't come up with any hint.
  12. Dave, If you can help me get one for a 71 429CJ auto I would appreciate it.
  13. Does anyone know a part number for a Rochester carb fuel filter? Also wondering if anyone has a picture of the fuel filter assembly as well. Thanks!
  14. Considering it’s 29 degrees and glare ice I’m impressed with the turn out!
  15. So I woke up to 28 degrees and about 1" of snow on the ground. I still considered bringing the 71 to work today but am thankful that I didn't. It was glare ice on the freeway and quite exciting to drive in to say the least. I'll be heading over soon to see if anyone was silly enough to drive their older Mustang in. I did drive my 2018 Mustang so I am celebrating National Mustang Day by driving a Mustang just not as I intended!
  16. I'd second it! I haven't been in a few years but I'm planning on taking a day this summer and drive my 71 out there using only back roads
  17. Anyone going to the Mustang Day cars and coffee event at Ford WHQ in Dearborn on Tuesday 4/17? I'll be there with the 71.
  18. It's a long shot but this one popped up on ebay yesterday....... https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-1971-Ford-429-Cobra-Jet-carburetor-Mustang-Mach-1-Grande-Cougar-XR7-CJ/162999856956?fits=Year%3A1971%7CModel%3AMustang&hash=item25f38c6f3c:g:a98AAOSw0dha0vad&vxp=mtr
  19. Where did you post? What was wrong with your column and which parts did you replace? I'd be interested to know what made it difficult, any special tools required? Any gotchas, if you were to do it again you'd do it differently, etc. Might be a great how to write up! I'm thinking of tackling this either later this summer or maybe next fall. My column seems to have a lot of play in it.
  20. Any update on this? Did you attempt to tackle it and if so how did it turn out?
