  1. Hood is sold was picked up today... Thanks again
  2. I am about 2 hours away, so if you still have it, I would be interested. Could use it for my daughters 73. The hood is still available.
  3. I'll retake pictures tomorrow with my other cell phone and reload them.
  4. Hood is in really good shape, I have sold will not be using it on the coupe. When I complete an engine for the coupe it will likely be blown. I would like to sell the hood for $275.00 and that is you coming to pick it up. I'll post two photos of the hood, no holes in this hood and is ready for a final block and paint. Thanks
  5. I would possibly be interested in one of the front bumpers if you have one available.
  6. Looking at the yellow one and you see the grille and think nope its a fastback, then you see the bumper and think maybe it is a Mach 1? I don't know what it is but that bumper with the standard grille just looks tacky to me. The green Mach1 is beautiful and if it looks that great from 2 feet away worth getting.
  7. Did the NASA hoods really weigh more than a stock hood, what if you don't have ram air? I'd assume that you'd only need the flat springs if you added a NASA hood and had the ram air as well.
  8. Do you have a set availible without the rotors, I know I'm about a week late but you can never tell. Also my shipping area is 44826, usually the US post office is always cheaper on postage than Fedex or UPS.
  9. Do you still have the rear honeycomb panel and two chrome trim strips availible and if you do how much?
  10. I have a 6 pt. cage in the 72 I own, it was a custom job and done very well. I understand about climbing over it, but it truly is the proper way to strengthen the car, I've also connected the frame rails. Using the stock bucket seats, I'll have to purchase a removable steering wheel possibly to replace the odd looking small steering wheel that is in the car, that is only if it is a safe and legal thing to do. I will try and take some photos for you in the next couple days.
  11. Hello all, I'm looking to purchase the scoop inserts for the NASA hood I recently picked up at an auction. Has anyone purchased the the Repro scoops yet, I see used ones on Ebay that cost as much or more then a set of new ones. I know most times original is best, but if new has a good fit and ready for paint I might go in that direction.
  12. 1971 Sportsroof F code 1973 coupe F code Here's a question for someone, the 73 was Aqua with a white vinyl top and plenty of chrome, standard interior, but not a Grande. I wonder how many coupes were made that were built like a grande without the deluxe seats and door panels and extra insulation?
  13. I installed a pair of Headman headers and a dual exhaust kit from Summit racing. It took an entire day to install everything, it wasn't the easiest install, but I completed it myself and was cheaper than using a muffler shop. I even ordered the stainless tips and welded them on after measuring a few times. If you are handy and have time, and want to stretch your money do it yourself. If you don't mind spending an extra 200 take it to a shop. Rims are always a hard choice to pick something you'll like and not regret later on, so if you must just wait until you are sure. I also purchased my magnums from Summit, it is hard to beat their prices. I just don't care for the center caps. (The push on style kinda suck).
  14. I kinda like it, it was a Toyota so I don't see any harm in changing it. I would of wished he used something better for taillights instead of something he stole off of someones mobilehome or bought at Ace Hardware.
  15. Good news, as of today the Mustang has been fixed and is running. The noise was coming from the power steering pump, I removed all of the belts one at a time and it ended up between the power steering pump or the water pump. Both were on the same belt. I replaced all of the old rubber hoses on the car and the water pump nipple was dissolved so I replaced the pump. I also installed new headers and dual exhuast, and flushed the trans and installed a new filter. This lead to about two weeks of problems, with the trans.. Seems the new fluid and filter caused a valve to stick, but it is all corrected now! Thanks everyone for your help.
  16. I think the plug has a washer, but I will double check to make sure. I will try to remove the belts and see. I just bought a trans filter kit and will tackle that in the next few days. I'll get back with the results in a few days.
  17. Hello Everyone, I have a dilema and I thought that I would ask for some advice. My 71 is almost completely stock, except for the spoilers and tires and rims. Basic 302 2v auto with air and 57,000 miles. First problem, I changed the spark plugs a month ago and now third plug on the passenger side keeps backing out. Secondly, the engine idles almost perfect with no strange noises. Then you rev up the engine and a terrible squeal can be heard. I checked the belts, and tightened them a little just to be safe. Well, the noise is still there. So, now I'm thinking is it the flex plate or the torque converter. Both are original pieces to the car, I don't beat on the car I might have a little fun but I never power brake it. The car had the original 14" size tires until last year when I finally changed to the 275-50-15 tires, I wonder if that put too much stress on the car? Any help would be great, I don't often get a lot of time to work on the car and if I know how to find the problem it saves time fixing it.
  18. Last summer I replaced the shifter seal, there pretty much wasn't anything left of it being original. Now, I took the car out yesterday for a short trip and as I was waiting for our son I noticed that the top half of the seal is gone. It appears as if it as dissovled, I probably drove the car about 400 miles last year after replacing the seal. I don't know of any problems with the car that would of caused this. Do you think that an electrical current from somewhere caused it? The lower plug in the shifter housing is fine.
  19. That's correct it was an option, my parents 72 Mach 1 was medium blue with a blue standard interior. My stupid brother sold it about 15 years ago, probably to gone to restore but sold it for $800.00 dollars and it had a TON of NOS sheet metal with it.
  20. The pictures (links) that you posted didn't show up, do you have a list of items you want to sell?
  21. I'll take the lower control arms... send me a PM and I'll give you my address, can use paypal if you wish for payment.
  22. Does he have any of the chrome for the vinyl top?
  23. I recieved my first Mustang at 12 yrs old, a birthday present from my parents. It was a 65 with a 200 and auto, I drove the car all around until I tore it apart a year later. I collected parts for about 6 years and sold it for a 73... I later sold the 73 to Don of OMS and that car started his business. I think someone said it best as it does feel like a falcon, unrefined, loud, simple and looks great. We took my 71 out to dinner last night and the Mrs is finally starting to like the car. She said the car seemed cozy and that it was like sitting next to me on the couch... I guess I couldn't do any better unless it was a convertible.:)
