  1. Well shoot, maybe I should have checked first before asking. You know what they say when you “assume” something. Thanks guys! Ron
  2. Hello Gents, Is there a supplier out there that sells a lock set just for the doors and trunk only? My ignition cylinder already has a key and is fully functional. There is no key for the doors or trunk on my car. Going off of memory Ford used a squarish key for the ignition and oval key for everything else. Every set I can find has the ignition and doors and no trunk or a complete set that includes ignition which I don’t need. There is plenty of trunk or doors only, but I don’t want 3 separate keys. Thanks for any help, I am new to this... Ron
  3. Just purchased 72 coupe. Optioned with Power Steering, AC, but no power brakes. This is going to be my sons first car. My concern is this won’t be safe, driving is a little different now than it was in 1972. I have driven plenty of cars with manual drum and disc brakes. Mostly on smaller cars and it was adequate enough to stop the car. This Mustang is heavy and having never driven one I was thinking this might be more than he can handle. Everything brake wise needs replacing, so now is the time to do it. So, for those with manual brakes, should I keep them and save some money or do a powe
  4. Hello all, my name is Ron and just purchased a 1972 Coupe for my 15yr old son. It needs some work but runs and mostly works. I am contemplating swapping the C4 to a manual. Other than than that it’s a cleanup and paint and rolling restoration. I will get it safe and reliable, it’s up to him to make it something nice. I am glad there is a forum dedicated to these cars. I have attached a couple pictures of me pulling it out of the barn and another of it in my back field.
  5. Thanks everyone, car is home and we are going through it. Lots of work to be done, but it will be worth it. I appreciate the links and time taken to reply. Ron
  6. Thank you for the picture, seems like I have a lot of sourcing to do. It would be nice if I had a donor vehicle to get everything I need in one place.
  7. Looks pretty good for 6 yrs of use. I read through the thread. Did you manage to make a parts list since 2014?
  8. Hey guys, new here. Just picked up a ‘72 coupe. I do not do automatics in anything I drive so I am wanting to get rid of the C4. I have done an auto to manual swap on my ‘72 Dodge pickup, so not a stranger to the required work. I have read a few articles and even a few threads here about swaps, I am wanting to do something with all Ford parts to get around fabrication and modifications. I would like to use a T-5 and possibly make it all work using factory clutch parts/linkage,bell housing and flywheel. Is this a pipe dream? 2V302 for reference. Thanks for any help or informa
