  1. Just the one hinge cover. No seat backs. I do have one white rear seat belt retractor 72/73 type bezel and two 71 type. These are the bezels the rear retractor belts pass through mounted in the interior rear side panels
  2. Pictured are a 73 black deluxe seat belt set, a 73 standard front seat buckle side belt and some other black seat belt plastic parts. Black deluxe seat belts used standard black shoulder belts. What makes a black set deluxe are the bright metal buckles. A partial set of 73 blue deluxe seat belts, probably out of a convertible as there are no blue shoulder belts. A partial set of 71 ginger deluxe seat belts. Ginger interior items. And ginger, black and white seat items. I have 4 additional seat bottoms not shown. All would need recovering. Also have 6 seat backs. PM me about any items you have interest in.
  3. See photos. First photo, miscellaneous interior parts. Second photo a pair of Mach 1 sports interior black door panels out of a car with power windows and factory door speakers, no cracks, excellent condition. Third photo, Mach 1 sports rear interior black rear panels, right side out of a car with power windows, both in very nice condition. Fourth photo, interior roof trim. The ginger color pieces out of a coupe. The black piece out of a Mach 1. PM me if interested in any of the items for pricing/ package deals.
  4. Mike, I can take close up pictures and forward to you in a private message if you would like. They are rusty, but hard for me to tell about the degree of pitting.
  5. Pictured below are the following items and prices. Shipping extra. I am in western NJ. 73 NOS bumper stone guard $100 Excellent used deluxe bumpers with guards for 73. $250 complete, $210 missing the right side rubber "L" pad. 73 urethane rear bumper quarter panel fillers $100 set. $50 for the single piece shown. Mach 1 quarter panel extensions $25 each 71-72 original rear license plate plastic shield $40 each Gas cap with cable $40, without cable $35 Mach 1 rear tie downs (used with dual exhaust chrome outlet extension Mach 1s to protect damaging them from tie down shipment chains). Dealers were supposed to remove these before selling the car. $100 for the set. 73 rear bumper mounting bracket set $75 73 NOS tail lights $250 each, when the bright metal is painted black in the correct areas they are correct for 71-72s. NOS tail light gasket $20 Honeycomb panel solid $100, cracked apart at center $50. (Cracks hidden when trim and gas cap are in place) NOS upper honeycomb trim $90 Used upper and lower honeycomb trim $30 each
  6. If your engine is a 351C, starter motors are different for automatic transmissions and manuals but bolt right up. Not sure that is true for 302 engines or what engine you have. Perhaps if the starter is for a manual it might cause the starter issues you had and maybe the scraping issue.
  7. Clearing out items I acquired years ago for another 71-73 project I decided not to undertake. Steering related parts. Tilt column with key and "rag joint". Extra "rag joint" for a tilt column. 2 rim blow steering wheels, no cracks. The ginger one with pad. The other is a dark color from a Lincoln (Lincolns, Mercury and other Ford cars used the same 3 spoke steering wheel as Mustangs, but the pads were different and offered in more colors). Interior column trim, black. Power steering gears, one variable ratio (tag SPA-T) the other fixed. PM me if interested in any or all items.
  8. All the motors are tested and work in both directions. All are still available.
  9. I am cleaning out my garage of 71-73 mustang parts acquired over the years (80s, 90s and 00s) from parts cars and ebay. I finished the restoration of my 73 Mach 1 and 71 Cougar XR7 years ago and was holding on to many items with the thought of restoring more, but have decided not to, so am starting to sell off what I have left over. I am starting with power window parts. I the coming weeks/ months other categories. Pictured below are the power window related parts for sale. The window glass is for power window coupes/ convertibles, not fastback/Mach1. Non power window glass lacks the arched cutout at the bottom of the window to clear the door power window motor mechanism. Some of the switches are and bezels are for 73s the others for 71-72s. PM me if you have interest in any part(s) shown.
  10. The holes do not look factory made. I have a 73 Mach 1 and it has 3 holes in that area. The left hole is for the rear defrost switch, the center hole is for the rear defrost is "on" indicator light, the right hole for the parking brake warning light which is part of the factory convenience group.
  11. The two wire plug is 12 volt switched power when the ignition is on and also on when the key is turned to accessory. The other wire is for the radio bezel light which has power only when the head light switch is on. Ground is via the bracket on the back of the radio as well as via the radio chassis mounted to the metal face plate mounted to the metal dash.
  12. I changed to tilt column a long time ago, maybe 30 years or so. I have taken it out once or twice since then to work on the dash etc. If you look in the Ford service chassis manual on re-installing, there is a spacing requirement for the rag joint. I used a drill bit of the right diameter as a spacer gage when I re-installed it. Also, when you install the steering wheel on it, I think there are alignment marks on the factory steering wheel and end of the column shaft to line up. This should get you close to not needing to adjust your toe in/ toe out to have the steering wheel in the correct position when going straight down the road.
