  1. I would agree with your pic as a good example, besides getting a different date. Don't need to be the same date all around. I have JAN Quarters and FEB Windshield in a late FEB built car. Haven't looked at the rest of my glass yet.

    I'm curious to what dates the rest of your windows are.  My windshield and back glass are original to the car for sure, they are dated January `73 and December `72 respectively.   Not that it really matters but my curiosity is piqued as to when the Carlite logo design changed.  I have a August `72 door glass and it has the "Carlite" with the oval around it and my December `72 back glass is the latter design.  I'd like to see glass from cars built in that August to December window.

  2. I should have a complete set of clear glass from a '73 Mach 1.

    I’m interested, tell me more.  I’d like the dates to predate my cars build date of February 2/73. What’s the dates on yours?

     

    Found what I think is one of the door windows, date on that one is 3A, so January '73. I'll find the rest of the glass this weekend.

    Thanks, very interested to see what the rest of them are dated.  My windshield is January `73, so far so good!

  3. Thanks for the pictures.  I agree with what’s been said.  The clear glass etching would have nothing where the sun-x script is and it would be M60.  It’s been difficult to find examples of clear with the later Carlite design.  Seems like everyone but me has an air conditioned car with the sun-x tinted windows.  Here is an example from a ‘76.  I believe mine should look like this except for the date code of course.3495-ED0-F-A9-C8-4-FA1-966-E-84-F262-ECB385.jpg

  4. I’m trying to buy new door and quarter windows.  I want to have the correct “Carlite” info and date put on the windows.  I believe the logo changed sometime in late 1972.  My car is non-air conditioned and came with clear side glass.  Also I have none of the original side windows to reference.  So I’m asking for pictures of the etching from peoples 1973 Mustangs/Cougars with clear non-tinted door and quarter window glass.  Please help!

  5. Welcome from central Illinois!  I understand wanting to fix something up and not being overly concerned with resale value.  I have never made money on a car, I always end up with more in them than they are worth.  Good luck!

I also have a very understanding wife, who won’t drive the vette but is looking forward to driving the Mach1 when I get it road worthy.
  7. After removing the very dented oil pan I shined light and looked over the bottom end of the engine and was pretty happy with how things looked until I looked up at a few of the visible camshaft lobes.  Looks like pieces are breaking off at least one lobe and another looks porous.  I don’t feel the engine needs to come completely apart or rebuilt but a cam change is a must. Im interested in people’s opin

  8. Thanks. I think it’s very cool that the original invoices are still obtainable. I really like having some of the cars history, I’d like to have even more. I haven’t begun to look for mats yet. I don’t have the originals, there wasn’t even any carpet left in it. I’ll add them to a very long list of stuff to be on the lookout for, at least now I’ll have the part numbers and how they are supposed to look. I do find it odd that it specifies that your only getting front mats, they couldn’t even give the buyer a complete set. Thanks again!
