    Hey Mark, Sorry for the tardy reply. I dont seem to be getting alerts that there are any posts or replies to my comments. I had to get my steering column rebuilt. I contacted West Coast Cougar since they had a YouTube video with their expert advertising easy rebuilds. However, the old man doing the rebuilds retired. They referred me to a fella in Missouri that did. I contacted this guy and arranged to have my column sent to him. He received it and did tell me that steering columns was only a part time gig and that he had regular full time employment. Understood. However, it took

  5. Welcome to the fold from Texas! You've did very well! Let us know what she's like, extra pics and what you might do to her!
  6. Hello from Texas! Looks like you've got your work cut out. I myself have not had my first hot rod until I was 55 (Last Year!). I bought a 72 Mach 1 that was mostly restored in body and mechanics but the brakes, steering, interior and electrical were all shot. Spent many months getting what i could done. Anyway the pic of the label from the valve cover that you posted indicates that it is a Windsor engine. Here is a link for IDing the difference. https://www.vintage-mustang.com/topics/faq/351windsorcleveland.html Hi all. New member here. Turned 40 years old last week and bou
  7. Replied to your original posting that new repros are available on ebay and the door panels are also available on the net but also mostly come in black. The console would require painted to match your original if your interior isnt already black. There is a wealth of parts out there on eBay, CJ Pony, Summit Racing etc. but they do not always fit or are incorrect so keep all shipping boxes and invoices for the returns. Here is an eBay link for the console. https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Ford-Mustang-1971-1973-ACP-Center-Console-Assembled/283509286658?fits=Year%3A1973%7CModel%3AMustang&a

    Welcome from Houston! Hope you enjoy. You can find a center console new repro on eBay for $600 to $700 in black so they would need to be painted to match exisitng. Door panels are a problem. New repros available on CJ Pony Parts but they are incomplete and require much modification and fitting.

    Hi All, I've been having hell trying to find a rag joint for my 72 Mach 1. The steering column was a cobbled up Franken-column that barely turned this lovely Mach 1 while on the road much less static. Anyway, after replacing the power steering gearbox, the pitman arm and all the tie rods minus the center link still came to the realization that it was the Franken-coupling that was to blame. I've search high and low for a replacement but need help! Can anyone point me to who might have one? Its a tilt column and according to West Coast Cougars, its a half round with a center set screw.

    Hi All

    Welcome from Texas Mate! Looks and sounds like you have things well in hand. She'll be a looker when you're done!
  12. The electrical was so screwed up in my 72 Mach 1 that it is costing me $$$ to get the car completely rewired. The dash wiring was jury rigged and neither the horn nor the signal lights worked. I installed a new signal switch and got the horn working. It then shorted when I tried to start the car. Lots of smoke but thankfully no flames. Had it towed to a speed shop for that project.
  13. Welcome fellow Texan! Nice looking machine you got there and yore build looks like its coming along very well. I have a 72 Mach 1 that is currently being rewired at Kemah Custom Classics. I hope to have it back before too long. Hope to meet up with you soon. I picked up mine on eBay in April of 18. Restored engine, tranny and body but everything else was shot. Once the wiring is complete, A/C and a few engine mods will be forthcoming. The first pic is from the eBay listing from Nebraska and the second is from my driveway in Clear Lake. Lemme know if yore interested!

    No problem-ay.....the rebuilt 4300Ds from Pony Carb have all the inherent problems engineered out. The rest will be accomplished with new Comp Cams kit with roller everything.....Will keep you posted. The wiring is shot so currently getting that all replaced.

    The rebuilt Autolite 4600Ds that have been rebuilt by Pony Carbs, now owned by Champion Carburetor, have been rebuilt with all its shortcomings engineered out. I want to keep the flavor of the 1970's intact. The originality of this Mach 1 was already worked out by its previous owners. The original 2V carb and intake were replaced by Edelbrock 4V carb and intake. The color was originally white so very little was original. The object is to make a damn good looking performer with the 70s tech.....albeit with a new Comp Cams roller cam, lifters and rockers......so on the outside, no one will k

    Thanks! Wie gehts es ihnen! Thanks, Bobby :) Mir geht es gut, Dankeschön! Hope, you are well, too and keep up the work on your car. Keep us posted! Bis bald, auf Wiedersehen ;) Gesendet von meinem E6633 mit Tapatalk Almost finished! New wiring for the entire stang in progress. Will be testing brakes and getting an alignment soon. Will be on the road soon after that!

    Hey Carolina! This stang was not a special order. It had white paint out of Dearborn, MI. Nothing special on the Marti Report. Kansas City DSO. Sold to Southtown Motors in KC. It came with a FMX transmission but now has a fresh rebuilt C6. I opted not to get the dealer invoice as the costs were mounting for the parts yet to come. the latest fiasco was the shot wiring. Tried to start it after 8 months on jacks in my garage and smoke came billowing out from under the dash. I'm currently getting it rewired. I could do it myself since I am a licensed electrician but am fed up and the Sp
