1971 Convertible parting out


Recommended Posts

I am keeping the interior rear quarter trim panels, the A/C ducting, kick panels, w/s wiper mechanism and probably a few other odds and ends.  Standard grille appears to be in good shape.  Here's the rub...it is winter here in MO and the car is on my lift with my Mexican Mustang underneath it.  Rear seat bottom and back are rusted thru in some spots.  Pulling parts from it IS a priority however i am not parking the other Mustang outside in the rain/snow so i would ask that you be patient.  It has the HTF rear hood and fender trim but it is very plain jane (302 2V, manual drums, auto, interior is sad, dude let it sit in a field for WAY too long)

I need the rear panel in front of the trunk lid, between the convertible top opening and the trunk. It connects between the 2 quarter panels.

Mine is rusted thru in a couple of places for some odd reason.

I am thinking that may be one of only a handful of sheet metal parts not rusted thru. When I can lower the lift I will take some pics and sho you what it is like there

Ok, thanks. That's the weirdest part rusted on this car. The cowl is also rusted but that's from pine needles that weren't removed. I've been searching for this panel for a while.

front seat tracks?

They are worthless. Seat frames are toast too. Sorry

The filler panel between rear window and trunk is very common place for rust. Since the cars were not dipped there is nothing inside the panel to stop rust. Also if they sealer was not applied perfect just a pin hole lets water in from the rain gutter there. I have a California car and that was only place that had rust. I cleaned it up and brushed on some POR and new seam sealer. I had a parts car from Michigan that had zero rust in that panel that I used on another build.

 

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

I need the window regulators and assoc. parts to make the rear 1/4 windows work. Need them to work smoothly. 

What other parts do you need when you say associated parts? Mine are complete and do work but I may need some of the small parts since I am uncertain what I am missing. Sooooo....feel free to see if MikeG has what you need.

Appears to be ok, some edge rust, possible some in the trunk edge, but looks better than my current one. Definitely needing it.

I wouldn't use that por crap on my worst enemy's car. Do it right or not at all.

Mach 1's didn't come with roll down windows. So I have the glass, but I need everything else to make them work. 

My '73 Q code Mach has power windows and the rear ones roll down. Great to have when the weather is nice and just cruising in the car enjoying the exhaust sounds.

To my understanding, if your front windows were power, the back ones could roll down manual. If the front ones were manual, the back ones were fixed. Not sure what the logic was behind that.
