  1. Thanks i saw that as well but still good to have the Marti report on the car. When i changed the gears it had the factory 3:00 rear gear in it (now a 4:10) so used to scream on the highway...lol Needs a Detroit Locker bad though. Also saw the factory color was the light pewter metallic which was the color when i got it but i am sure it was repainted at some time. Also interesting we bought the car in Reseda CA (suburb of LA) but was sent to San Jose CA (Northern CA) so it at least has always been a CA car.
  2. Since i have made it a priority to get my ride back on the road i went out to the shop tonight and took some pictures of the Vin and Door Tag to share. Ordered the Marti Report on the car tonight so will be awesome to learn all about it since this is my first care i got when i turned 16. Mike
  3. Hey "without risk there is no reward" so unless you enter you have 100% chance of not winning. :) ::thumb:::D:P I figured WTH and entered. If you win the car you can do whatever you want to it, or leave it as they built it.
  4. Thanks. So what the heck gives? Look at these, $95??? http://www.mustangsetc.com/73-mustang-302-351-motor-mount-rebuilt-fits-coupe-fastback/ Youch!! That place is awesome but they don't have the cheapest prices on the planet that's for sure but i have always been able to get whatever odd piece i have been looking for from them in the past. Plus did you notice they said they are sold individually so that's an Each Price. Mike
  5. I just looked on rockauto.com and here is the trans mount info http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,1973,mustang,5.8l+351cid+v8,1132995,transmission-manual,transmission+mount,8756 and the motor mounts. http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/ford,1973,mustang,5.8l+351cid+v8,1132995,engine,motor+mount,5552
  6. Its not an insult to have someone offer to purchase your baby it just shows you do great work and take care of it. You never have to accept but always feels good when someone offers. The other thing that can be great is use this forum and help them find a car and be part of your club, now you have a new friend that has the same interests as the rest of us. I posted a ton of cars that are West Coast CA rides some aweful and some perfect for a project. http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-craigslist-adds-for-cars
  7. Well we all seem to be on the same page here and someone mentioned flywheel, on an automatic if it is one it does not use a flywheel but a flexplate and after 40+ years could be cracked and that will cause the vibration and you will never see it till the trans comes off the back of the block. If its a manual car like was already said could be numerous things, Pressure Plate might be warped, flywheel weight, Throw Out Bearing, Input Shaft Bearing, all sorts of little goodies to play with and give you headaches.
  8. Yeah that was my thread and getting alot of response as i found that highly modified 71 video on YouTube been a good one so far for sure.
  9. Yeah boy resto mod all the way looks old but underneath all new.
  10. I agree with you on that Jeff as you can tell i am not into half assing anything but your right if you measure twice and cut once and get the patch right and take your time no one will notice so will probably go that route and the the car back together.
  11. Yeah but well worth it was just looking at all of the progress and will be beautiful when completed for sure.
  12. Just saw this on YouTube and thought what would you do if you had the unlimited funds available to do whatever you wanted?
  13. You just need to yelp it or have Jeff walk you through it online or on the phone while you have your hands on it. Different Carbs have different tricks and nuances to them.
  14. Agreed Don if it is not alligned properly then it wont work. Plus lots of fun if you still have the drivers seat installed (been there done that before) use a multi meter and you can see if things are lined up correctly when you turn the key.
  15. You don't need any special bracing for floors on these cars. Especially a small patch. yeah but thinking about replacing the floors completely and for that you do otherwise your asking for issues with door fit etc still deciding to do patches or all of it. Figure i would only have to do it one time if i did it all at the same time. There are some small pin holes in the passenger side rear floor hence why i felt it might be the thing to do. Or just do a drivers and passengers side section and leave the tunnel. I dont know still scratching my head as to what to do. :chin:
  16. Yeah your right Ray it makes the engine bay look so much smaller. look how much bigger mine looks with the right colors. http://www.7173mustangs.com/ezgallery.php?action=view&id=3268 I agree with you on the hood pins but its because of the location of the core support and that the hood is so long. Mine is like that but you cannot really tell with the two tone hood using aftermarket looking hood pins (did it when i was 19) would i do that again nope would change to a different hood with the Ram Air Pieces and twist locks.
  17. Yeah exactly he put that shackle kit on it to handle the saggy butt our cars rock instead of doing it the correct way and either re-arching the springs or lowering the front end...lmao
  18. Does it go away with the Clutch in (Throw Out Bearing)? I have a Baja Bug that did that vibration but went away with the clutch in and needed a throw out bearing replaced. Once fixed was back to nice and smooth.
  19. Yeah for sure either that or the Armor All'd the crap out of it...lol Mike
  20. Yeah but the one i saw at Hot August Nights here in Reno and posted does not? http://www.7173mustangs.com/attachment.php?aid=37245 and i have engine pics of that one in my Sparks posting as well. http://www.7173mustangs.com/attachment.php?aid=37248 http://www.7173mustangs.com/attachment.php?aid=37246http://www.7173mustangs.com/attachment.php?aid=37247

Gotta love Green with Brown interior...blah. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/cto/5428221329.html and I have never seen a Mash 1 but might be worth a call... http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/5434579269.html this one is super nice love the wheels (looks like its right out of the hot wheels packge) http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/ctd/5442570145.html http://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/ctd/5442534110.html Modified hood and trunk (spoiler) that just screams 70's upgrade http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/5438234118.html This looks like a great price and negotiable and it looks to be in good condition http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/5432830109.html good project for someone. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/ctd/5435257096.html http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/5399652555.html http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/5393160226.html http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ctd/5426202490.html http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ctd/5416161253.html

Mike
  23. Yeah for sure but i am sure they did it to entice people into calling which seems kind of stupid but you never know. Have heard similar storys about stuff like this. Had a friend of my dad's say he saw and ad for a 65 Chevy an old lady wanted to sell had the car in the garage and wanted $150 for it was her son's that was killed in Vietnam and after being there for 30 years finally decided to get rid of it. So he called her she has no idea what kind of car knows its a V8 and the color so he decides what the heck. Goes and visits with her she opens the garage and there is a 65 corvette sitting on blocks in prestine condition. Just needed all the rubber components replaced. He paid her like $7500 for the car as she had no idea wht it was and was worth and both got a great deal.
  24. Well thats good and bad that they had to do that to install the seat but at least you found the way they did it. while its out you can pull back the carpet and see how they are supposed to be mounted (like the other side).
