  1. I am reluctantly selling my 1971 Mustang Coupe! 351 Cleveland 4 speed. Completely rebuilt all new steel where required. Stripped to bare metal. Has a steel 1968 Shelby tail light panel with sequential tail lights. Color is 2012 Gem Green Metallic with Silver Argent stripes. Too many new parts to list! Car is located in Londesborough Ontario. Appraised at $28000. Asking for best offer. Cash only no trades.
  2. The other day I tried to start my 1971 351 Cleveland it flooded. I left it over night and tried to start it again the next day. When I did I notice fuel comming out of the tail pipe. I pulled the dip stick and there was fuel in the oil. I pulled the breather off and saw a pool of fuel on the intake. I have a Edlebrock carb with an electric choke and have had issues with it in the past. Should I replace the carb? Is it a fuel pump issue? I would appreciate any advice!
  3. Thanks I will check it out. Under carriage is very clean. All new floor boards! Unless you are going to use yours as a daily driver I would personally not undercoat. With that said mine still has the original undercoating/rustproofing on it. When I get around to cleaning it off I don't plan on re-undercoating. If your interested, here is what the Mustang Club of America states in their judging rules (for concurs): 5. UNDERCARRIAGE Points A. Undercarriage: Undercoating: No undercoating allowed in Trailered Class. Undercoated Cars: Everything must be covered except drive shaft, transmission, rear-end housing, exhaust pipes, mufflers, springs and plates. Gas tank, fully undercoated or have overspray around leading front edge and two sides. Must show some evidence of overspray. Convertible plate must be undercoated. Non-undercoated Cars: Undercarriage primer either red oxide, dark gray or black with some body color and pinch weld paint overspray. (Primer paint drips should be visible for non-undercoated cars.) Convertible plate, black or natural........................................................................................................................................................ 20 Workmanship, condition and cleanliness of undercoating. (Workmanship of undercoating must be poor quality or excessive to deduct points). Workmanship, condition and cleanliness of underside of floorpans ..................................................................................................................................... 15 Thanks Thanks foryour imput. Food for thought!

  5. Just wondering has anyone undercoated their car before storeage? Mine is in a unheated garage. I would appreciate any feedback. I was thinking about Krown Rust Control! I have invested a lot of money in my paint job.
  6. As I used a steel panel I totally removed the original tail light panel. A good fabrictor is highly recommended! The biggest issue would be wiring the sequential tail light wiring harness. I don't have many pictures of the trunk.
  7. I don't believe there is a huge difference! If you use the steel one you will need to do some trimming to make it fit. You will also need to fill in the area where the quarter extentions bolt to. I did a similar mod to my 72 sportroof around eight years ago. I had to modify the 71-73 tail light panel to accept the Thunderbird buckets and lights. It was a bit of a pain in the butt and I think it came out pretty good. I've wanted to build another ever since I sold the car. I think it looks great. Using the Shelby panel looks like the way I'll go next time. Great job! Leon Looks good. I like it with or without the chrome.

  9. Is your car a Coupe? On mine I cut out the rust and welded in a patch.
  10. Yes, they did, but this car isn't one of them obviously. Just a scam. I agree! Not sure what it is but I don't like it.
