  1. That's one tough and good looking driveshaft safety cage - well done :bravo:
  2. Wow, you can eat from that engine bay! Thank you for the photos. What a beautiful car! Well done concerning the overall view. Too bad they got the engine not right from the start! It will be a bummer to unbolt all that beautiful engine compartment again...
  3. I found an original ginger console all complete five years ago on Epay for about 300 Dollars. It was and is without cracks, complete, has a light paint refresh and a still working original clock. Shipping and customs to Germany made it almost a 500 Dollar piece but it was well worth it ::thumb::
  4. Geoff, I think your idea applies how it really was ::thumb:: There is no consistency of the thing with the caps. There were both 2-bolt and 4-bolt on the same kind of blocks, here is a good example of this in this thread: [/url] https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-vin-engine-casting-no-casting-day-confusion-pls-comment
  5. It's a very interesting book. As Don say in his reply, lots of confusion. On the 72 Q code I owned it only had a single point distributor, but then again and I only found this out for sure 3 or 4 years back, the block was a Boss, so anything could and probably was changed by the PO. Personally, I thought it was only R code motors that got dual point Dizzy's ( R code 71 Boss 351C and 72 HO) I did find a dual point Windsor distributor at a swap meet earlier this year, so yes they could have been on 72 CJ's, anything is possible where Ford are concerned. Geoff. To top this, my
  6. I can also provide several names of good divorce lawyers as well. Ummh... I know few of them already... But thanks, Randy - you never know...
  7. No problem. Be more than glad to baby sit for you. Just send two round trip air from Cincinnati to me and leave the keys for the stang. :D :D Ok - but you have to tell the cops why in the world you have renounced of all safety features of the car... But it's driveable ;)
  8. Never seen one before... Nice color - reminds me of my 1970 F250 in "Reef Aqua"... There has been also a "Fastback" version of these cars:
  9. ::welcome:: from Germany
  10. I found a wiring harness surprisingly 'local' - it is exactly as the one which Richard showed ::thumb::
  11. Sunday is wedding anniversary - hope to get the wife into the cinema... She do not know exactly what about the film is :D Could one of you babysitting our three kids, please?
  12. Scott, yes - me lollerz Here is my thread: https://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-power-steering-pump-how-to-restore-tutorial Others have done that too - it is absolutely doable!
  13. ::welcome:: from Germany! Nice looking vert! If I were you I would not put any stripes on it - the car looks fantastic as it is ::thumb::
  14. What a beautiful car :coolphotos: Surely sad it have to go... It looks like it was very well taken care of and it has such a beautiful paint! There did someone a good job on this in the past! If I already had not one that car would be one for me surely - I like that clean and sleek Sportsroof-look in that color without stripes, NACA-hood and the non-Mach 1-grille! I hope it will come in good hands!
  15. ::welcome:: from Germany! Wow, what a beauty :coolphotos: Mine will look quite the same when finished, even with the same dog dish hub caps and the 3/4 vinyl roof. Have a Q-code too... Here is the right place for it, for your questions and many information!
  16. Rocketfoot, if you want I could bring in my knowledge about the 71-73 T5 - my father and me both have a '73 one (Mach 1 and Vert) and I have collected some information and material over the years, which include some rarities like special owners manual, brochures but also common issues etc. Are there some 'official' write ups about that topic already existing from which I could start? And please note that I could not do that over night rather it would be a longer process because of my daily to-do list for job, familiy and such... But I am willing to do it and it would be a per
  17. Thank you very much for posting all the pictures!!! I was sad sometimes ago as I saw how many were deleted automatically... I love your thread with your work and took it ever for reference, inspiration and motivation! Thanks again - I love this car but yours too, everytime I see it in your signature!

  19. ::welcome:: from Germany! Chevelles are cool... Before I ever saw a 71-73 Mustang I was looking for a 68/69 Chevelle ::thumb:: But then it was too late for them :D
  20. Did you buy the car? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1972-Ford-Mustang-MACH-1-351-/163935293423?nma=true&si=%252BHoOGlHVxnJVrF%252Fs6k%252FeksRblbU%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 I did not bid on it. The guy was really good about sending me info at first and then nothing. In the listing he also said he would put a pic of the carb. Not sure if he was dishonest or just clueless. The streaky paint (black mildew cr@p that i have seen on white paint on other cars including the Sprint i used to have). On to looking for something else. The c

  22. If you don't mind about removing the windshield near future you could also use some spoiler adhesive like used in modern applications, for example Sikaflex 221... That will hold and withstand lots of force! But removing it will perhaps be a whole different story... :whistling:
  23. Hmmm, that spray bomb job is annoying and time consuming to remove - too bad, they did that... If the described replacements are all your car needed it was not a big deal. Congratulations ::thumb::
