  1. I have 2 items for sale, a 1973 drivers side fender in very good shape. Absolutely no rust ever. Has minor dings. I bought this for my 71 on eBay only to find out it’s a 73 fender. Included is the fender extension that came with it. This is a original Ford fender, not a after market. $300 firm I have 2 sets of CalCustom high finned aluminum valve covers. The first set has a minor crack on the flange asking $75 for that one. The second set is in excellent condition. $200 firm. The covers will be glass beaded so they will look like new. I can be contacted at (631) 255-0085 my cell for info or pictures. The items are located at area code 11935 NY. Thanks for looking.

  3. Thanks, I’ll look for them now.
  4. I stopped back at my house today and noticed my wheels were turned. My car has been under a cover and sitting in front of my 2 car garage for a couple of months now. Typically this time of year it’s tucked away in my car trailer. My son has my trailer at his house for now since he moved into his own house. Anyway, as I was getting back into my truck I noticed my wheels turned I asked my other son to take the cover off and see if the door was unlocked. He said everything to him looked ok. When I got home late tonight I had to look at it myself. As I looked at it the wheels are turned hard right. It’s now sitting a couple of feet further away from the garage door and slightly on a angle. I typically pull in straight, 3 feet from the door and have my wheels straight. Last night it was raining and windy. The only thing I can think of that saved my car was I pull my pick close to it and behind it. The other thing is it’s a 4 speed with a column locked in reverse to removed the key. Tonight my truck is blocking it in. I can’t look at it in the daytime till thanks giving. The wait is killing me, but I have other things I have to attend to. We all love our cars, but family always comes first. Question? I am now in the market for a good car alarm. Any of my fellow Mustang lovers know of a good deterrent to keep the bastards away. Thanks
  5. Went to download a wiring diagram for my 1971 Mach 1 and I get 404 not found on the heading.
  6. Thanks for the information. Looks like a easy install.
  7. I have a 71 Mach 1, I have a bit of difficulty getting my self in, steering and shifting due to being 6’ 2” tall. Has anyone here ever modified there seat or do they make a kit to help get some leg room? I’m sure someone on this forum has the same problem as I do. I looked at how it’s bolted down and the back bolts kind of hook over to the back side of the seat platform making it harder to modify. Unfortunately my car didn’t come with a tilt steering wheel which would help getting into my car. Clutching and steering would still be a issue. Thanks for any help you can give my.
    Love the yellow and black contrast. Beautiful job!
  8. I know they put my decals on within 2 weeks of painting it. I think it all depends on the products being used. There’s different times for each brand of hardener. Drive it like you stole it!
  9. Welcome from eastern LI NY. This will be your new home. Everyone here is great and eager to help you during your restoration. Drive it like you stole it!
  10. I have a 69 Mustang convertible I plan on painting bright yellow with black. Just like the boss 302 paint scheme. Thanks for your comment.
  11. Does anyone know of a good ac parts place to get the correct adjustable ac idler for my 71 Mach 1. All the places I have searched don’t look correct. Thanks for any help you can provide. Drive it like you stole it! :runninpony:
  12. This car has spent 48 years in Minnesota. Now located in eastern Long Island NY. Just Painted and decals put back on. It has an engine block heater and side chrome trim. The drive train is original with 78k and never out of the car. Heavy Rusty Jones under coating saved its undercarriage which is solid. Thanks for looking.
  13. So, I guess it’s a dealer installed option. Back then I’m sure they put theses into a lot of cars in Minnesota. The car is in surprisingly solid shape. The floors and trunk are original. My body guy said they Rusty Jones the hell out of the underside of the car. I lucked out. I bought this sight unseen.
  14. There should be a rubber cap like a split rubber tube that slips over the edge just inboard from the outside surface. That sort of keeps you from chipping the paint. You should never tighten the nuts too tight. I use the 3-M strip calk to seal around the nuts and studs. I ordered the 3m caulk and will take care of this on the holiday weekend. Thanks for the tip.
  15. Thanks for the image, they will be coming off soon now that I know. All in all, the guy did a great job on it. I couldn’t believe the hood was as tall a me when I saw it standing up.
  16. When I sent my car in for paint I noticed that when they took the nose off of the car it had a plug dangling by the radiator. I have all the previous owner info and know this car spent the first 48 years in Minnesota. So the block heater wasn’t a surprise to me. Was a block heater a option or was this a dealer installed option? My car also has chrome trim going down the sides. 4 pieces on each side. I think this was also dealer installed. Here is my marti report.
  17. This is the way my body guy installed the seals, I can’t seem to find any info on the correct way they go on.
  18. Great pics. Thanks for pointing out the areas that need to be addressed. So it was a design flaw from the get go like I thought. This happened from rain. I’ve been a Mustang fan for a long time. This is my first 1971. I also have a 1969 convertible. I guess it’s more of and a obsession than being a fan. Thanks for your input. :thankyouyellow:
  19. Nice lines. Looks like the car was done right. All the gaps look great. Enjoy
  20. Anyone here ever have a problem with a leaking 1/4 window? I just got my 1971 Mach 1 back from the paint shop(picks to come soon). All new seals, weather stripping on the whole car. It rained last night and I noticed I still have water in the same spot. Has anyone here come up with a fix for this. It looks to me like a poor design from the get go. The gutter should of gone down to the bottom of the glass line. I have to fix this before the interior gets done. Any help out there? Thanks :chin:
