  1. Hello Group, Im looking for the rear bumper mounts RH & LH for 1971-72. These things are as rare as hens teeth, I would like to purchase new. D1ZZ-17A750-AR D1ZZ-17A751-AR No one has inventory. Any suggestions on a vendor ?? Thank you, HVY MTL
  2. Great looking ride and I think you will like the louvers. ::thumb:: I had them on my 71 Mach and they look great. Cheers, HVY MTL
  3. I'm a Field Service Technician in the lumber sawmill industry. My main focus is sharpening and benching equipment for band saws and circular saws. I travel mostly the south east with a few trips to Canada.....eh ! I don't get alot of time to work on Heavy Metal, but making progress. I'm 2yrs into a 3yr project and alot of the rough stuff is finished. New floors, F/R Torque Boxes, Inner Rockers, New 5 Point Seats and Pans, Body work and the car is in Primer. I may do the rear seat delete.........I had suggestions of a fold down bar with booze........Finishing up the engine compartment with paint, new Master Cyl, Borgsen PS Pump Conversion. 302 Boss Cast Alum. Valve Covers, Accell Ignition components. Will soon start on the front grill and has the 71-72 Conversion with 71 urethane bumper. Thanks for reading. ::thumb:: HVY MTL
  4. OMG......what a good laugh. I agree....the Darwin Theory is at play here........ :shootself: HVY MTL
  5. I have a 73' vert with a 306 and I'm all about Edelbrock 600CFM #1406 with electric choke. It's very easy to set up and always holds a tune. My car has been on jack stands for 2 yrs and I start it every 3-6 weeks, depending on what it doing to it. The carb is very old and was neglected, still runs like a champ........ ::thumb:: Cheers, HVY MTL
  6. Put a new master cylinder on "Heavy Metal"......of coarse I need n adapter fitting for the rear brake line. The rear fitting in new master cylinder is 3/8-24 and the OEM line is 7/16-24.....gotta love it. Some days you need patience......and alot of beer..... ::beer::
  7. I just did a trans service and filter on my 73 vert. ......4qts will get you on the dip stick.......add from there. ::thumb::
  8. Ahhhh.....i see what you did there.....good stuff..... ::thumb::
  9. National Parts Depot will have what you need. The have front & rear frame extensions plus inner outer rocker panels. I hope this helps. Heavy Metal
  10. Very sorry to hear about your situation, I've been following your post. Thank goodness you have a good insurance company. I would strip your old car, and build another with good bones. ::thumb:: Will stay tuned, Heavy Metal
  11. Ya Know.......they found the fisrt 2 in China that started this virus: Sum Ting Wong Ho Lee Fuk :whistling:
  12. OMG......my new fav....... :bravo:
  13. A beautiful blend of OEM and new.......congratulations...... ::thumb::
  14. As the conspiracy theories ramble thru my head......... Maybe Muscle Car Guys pose a serious threat to the Communist Party of China. We are a main part of "Americana" which does blow their minds. .......someone stole their Mojo..... dancebanana
  15. I'll use a line from a gentleman that i work with: Don't expect........inspect...... :wrench:
  16. Thats a sweet ole girl you got there....... :udaman:
  17. Welcome from South Carolina. I say go for it, you will learn so much and will it test your problem solving capabilities. There is soooooo much to do on these cars, they are 50yrs old. Make a punch list and chip away at it, small victories will keep you going. ::thumb::
  18. +1 The fact that it runs so well in spite of it all is a testament of how awesome Edelbrock's are - try getting a Holley to run missing half it's sh!t. :whistling: :cool: rofl...............LOL........i agree.... ::thumb::
  19. I had a 71' Mach 1 with 351C that was to Boss spec........Boss clone. Holley 750 DP, Offenhauser intake, strip cam, Hooker Super Comp's headers, 3:91 Drag Pack. It was an absolute beast.....but....I could only hold a tune on that Holley for 6 months, and seasons in PA change quickly. Currently have a Edelbrock 1406 600CFM on my 302 in 73" vert, and its old nasty and never lost performance after sitting a few months. Call Edelbrock and ask there engineer's for the proper CFM carb for your engine and mods. I dont think I'll ever run another carb but Edelbrock.........just my opinion. ::thumb::
  20. I think it's the gun site cross hair in place of the fuel gauge that bumped up the price..... Maybe.........it's art...... :angel:
  21. Mine is sorta in between as far as the dish depth goes. I picked it because I prefer the thinner grip and a smaller area around the horn button. Mine did come with a tribar symbol horn button. Just didn’t put it on yet while I have the interior out. I am happy with them. I got both the wheel and the black powdercoated 6- bolt column hub adapter from CJPonyparts. It’s a 6-bolt 15” 1965 GT350 style woodgrain wheel with rivets. Like everyone else I prefer Ohio Mustang for most stuff but I strayed on that one (and the wheel predictably and frustratingly got backordered even though it showed in stock, but eventually it got here). I am 6’2” and it fits my legs perfectly fine, but I haven’t put the deluxe door panels in yet. Thank you for the response......that's a sweet wheel. I really enjoy the wood finish in these old cars. ::thumb::
  22. Thats pretty sweet......nice job....is that a 15" or their 13 3/4" diameter ??
  23. I have the same carb on my 73 vert with 302. You will have a tough time getting the engine to run at a cold start. You will need the choke flap and linkage, electric or manual choke to start consistently. A new carb ready to go is $365.00, you can find them rebuilt and complete for much less. I hope this helps, Heavy Metal
