  1. Awesome find!! Homer is awesome too! (wife and I honeymooned there back in '09)
  2. I've been absent from this site for a bit. Not much in the way of work on the Mustang for the last few months. But I haven't been twiddling my thumbs and watching paint dry. Did my first 1911 build. And picked up a couple of 81 JD's for yard/garden work (some minor tinkering involved).
  3. Still alive! The Rona didn't get us. Life's distractions got in the way, etc... The Mach 1 is still in bodyshop prison. It has been waiting on final coat of primer since March. I think the youngster with a new business (started last Nov.) made too many promises to too many customers and took on too many projects. That's my opinion. The financial uncertainty of all things post virus put a stop to further purchasing of Mustang parts. As of this writing my job is still secure. The world changed with a sneeze. So we've been ok with being in limbo with the Mach 1 project. I'm not "mad" at the bodyshop owner. We did have a good conversation about things back in March. He's got a good head on his shoulders for his age. We think a lot alike. It would have been nice to have had the Mustang home this spring as he started to make us believe earlier this year. But, when we brought the Mustang to his shop wayyy back in December he did say then it would probably be 8 months. As of this writing I'm ok with the Mach 1 getting back in our shop before late fall.
  4. You sir are too kind. Might be good enough if the paint job turns out well.
  5. Going to the bodyshop today. I put together a 39 page binder with 30 pictures of paint and decal details with 9 tabbed title pages with descriptions. I added some descriptions and details on the pictures as well. I could not have put this binder together without this website and the forum members who have done this before and have offered their pictures and advice. I wish I could remember everyone by name who has helped thus far, I can't. So: THANKS TO EVERYBODY HERE AND 7173MUSTANGS.COM!!!
  6. I would love to drive a Z28 with crossram dual 4's at least once. Just to row through the gears and hear the motor sing! Awesome that it is in the registry! Bonafide. No Marti reports in the Chevrolet world.
  7. Pretty Z28! Original engine? The trim tag is hard to read blown up, but it does appear to show 2L and 4L (4 speed and Z28).
  8. Looking forward to pictures David! Only 602 made for 67 and probably not many remaining today. My better half is the Mustang gal, I'm the Camaro nut in the family. Wish I would have bought a Z28 (68) years ago. I thought they were expensive 20-25 years ago and they were when compared to my income level at the time. Present day I wouldn't even consider one, as I could remodel my house for current prices.
  9. Thanks all. I reviewed some pics that were taken after the floor was cut out. It appears the forward drivers side parking brake cable bracket "was" there attatched to the frame rail. Waiting to hear back from the bodyshop if it is still there. Another member sent pics via PM of the bracket placement. Thanks Vintageman! The support brackets/nuts for seatbelt mount bolts are apparently included with the reproduction full floor pan. The bracket for the parking brake cable rod that we bought looks just like the one that is pictured from Vintageman. We'll just have to get that located and attached. I don't feel like I know a lot about 71-73 Mustangs. But I have learned a bunch since joining this site. So even though I'm paying someone to replace parts on the body and make the whole thing look nice. I'm finding myself "telling" the bodyshop how to put a 72 Mustang back together from time to time.
  10. The brackets has turned into a "problem" as they were not saved and ended up in the scrap bin. One rear seat 1/4 plastic side panel bracket was recovered from the bin. Damaged but can be used as somewhat of a template to make 2 new. Rear seat bottom hold down brackets are gone. We had to order ones meant for older Mustangs. Hope they can be retrofitted. Currently sorting out the parking brake bracket. Ordered one for another year model and it isn't the same. So I've requested a pic from another member here. Bodyshop has replaced full floors in older Mustangs before and told us that those repro floors come with brackets. He said that is why ours were not saved when the old floor was cut out. My first rodeo for this in depth of a restoration. Definitely a first to be paying someone this much money to work on our car. I hope the floor brackets is the worst of this resto.
  11. Great pics from underneath. Great condition. I have a special request; I need a picture of the forward bracket for the parking brake cable. The bracket that is just aft of the transmission crossmember in the tunnel. You have a picture of it, but something is in the way. When I removed the parking brake cable prior to bringing the Mustang to the bodyshop, I failed to take a picture. My wife's 72 is currently in the bodyshop getting the floor replaced (among other parts). Bodyman was unaware that the new replacement floor did not come with any brackets. So when the old floor was cut out, all the metal went in the scrap bin. Thanks for your time. If you can't it is ok. I'll make a seperate post requesting a picture. Your free Mustang post caught my eye and I checked for location. Other side of the country, bummer.
  12. More parts arrived and delivered to the body shop this week.
  13. Sounds obvious. Makes complete sense when I think about it now. I have to admit; I have never driven a 71-73 Mustang! There. I said it. :)
