  1. Have not had time to even look at this car since picking it up just over a year ago. Has anyone found any new information about paint codes for cars that were not painted at the factory? One person told me I might find the 'off site' paint spec sheet under the seat. Has anyone reading this ever found one of these special assembly sheets under a seat in their cars? I haven't had time to break into the tear-down yet and just want to make sure I don't damage any paperwork that could be hidden in the car anywhere.
  2. Be careful with Marti reports and the bumper protection packages... For some reason, his reports consistently show car's supposedly having bumper guards when there was never any installed on the car at the factory... His reports differ from the factory invoice in this area as they don't show the bumper guards... I have reviewed many car's, especially '71's where this has occurred. I spoke to him two year's ago at the Mustang Memories show in Michigan and through e-mail requests showing the discrepancy about this and well, they ignored me... I wanted my J Code vert report to be re-issued withou
  3. Wow, thank you so much for the link. It is the same configuration as the car I just purchased, I believe mine also had the white top. I love the silver stripes, I can't wait to see what the car looked like when it was first rolled out. Another poster told me to look for the build codes in the seat springs, I vaguely remember my dad saying something about papers he found in the car so I hope he never pulled them out. If he did I may never find them, he was kinda disorganized. I love the Burgundy top too.
  4. Hmmm... Ft McMurray? Long way away. I am in Niagara Falls, Ontario. I had my original 429 cobra jet engine rebuilt by an old school engine builder here in Niagara-on-the Lake (just across from Buffalo, NY) three year's ago. He is getting up there in age and is really a GM guy, but took my engine on because of the rarity of the car... There are not many good old school engine builder's left here in Ontario... There must be a good re-builder out West, Calgary/Edmonton? I know there a couple West guy's on this site, so hopefully they will chime in here with some references for you. On a sid
  5. The car in the picture is another members car. The rear bumper on it has the rub strip and guards was an added cost option. My car had few options on it. It was on ebay and he had not posted picture of the door tag. I got him to take picture and send me so I knew right off it was special order paint car. I ordered one in 73 a Mach 1 but when they said front bumper was going to be argent I change to stock color. I had ordered a Lincoln color that was dark brown metallic. I ended up with 5-H Medium Brown Metallic. This car is now in the MOM, Mustang Owner's Museum in Concord, N.C..

  7. Thank you very much for the information. Wish I had posted here before spending $270 on a Marti report, shoot! Did you change out the rear bumper?
  8. Hey folks, not sure if there are other Canadians on this site or not but I live in Alberta and need a reference for an engine rebuilder. I have been completely overwhelmed with the information on the 351 Cleveland and want the rebuild to offer something special.
  9. Original was Pink from factory, currently White. I will restore to original once I get the original papers.
  10. paying for a 1973 Mustang Convertible H_code 351C-2V that was originally painted pink at the factory. The car was purchased by a Mrs. Beny in Lethbridge Alberta Canada. She was the wife of the Dunlop Ford Sales Manager in the 70's and apparently wanted a pink mustang convertible. The car was purchased from Mrs. Beny by my father in approx 1980 and after his passing this year I just couldn't let it go to a stranger so I purchased it from my mom. The car is still in the Lethbridge area until I go down south to pick it up. I wanted to know a little about the pink paint job so I started a google s
