YES, YES and to be clear YES

I don't think they would be that expensive to ship.  It really depends on condition of the used panels and the quality of the reproduction.  These have the bright strips, door grips and trim pane

I'll know how good they are in a week or so.  The story on them is that the seller bought them from a body shop that was going out of business and never used them.  He claims they aren't warped and th

That's a shame...if only there was a website where you could find a person local to the seller that is sympathetic to the plight of 71-73 Mustang owners that would be a willing go between and shipper?....

I recently shipped a pair of door panels form St. Louis to Portland thru FedEx and it was about $100.

I am going to look at the OKC parts tomorrow. 7 hr drive each way and fingers crossed.

The panels arrived yesterday and I got them unpacked this morning.  They look really good and they look really different from the backside.  I have attached photos from 3 different panels I have on hand.  The white finished panel is an OEM panel that has been recovered about 15 years ago or so.  It has the original molded fiberboard core, with metal reinforcements at the dew wipe and top of the grip - and perforations for speaker grille and power window switch and a few other places I don't recognize.  The black set is like nothing I have seen before.  It is molded plastic with riveted reinforcements at the mounting clip holes and a riveted box section at the rear to provide a place for the clips.  The dew wipe is screwed on instead of being riveted or stapled.  The unfinished white panel is a supposedly NOS part.  It is molded plastic as well, but a different kind of plastic.  The vinyl for the door grip has no been cut away yet, and no holes or markings have been made for window cranks/window switch or speaker opening.  I can't really tell if this is a real Ford part, but the way the openings are made for the clips matches the older OEM panel, so that leads me to believe that it is.  Thoughts?

It looks like 10-29-90 may be some type of date? I did see another set of black deluxe panels while I was looking around for $200 on CL. Not sure where. If I get a chance I will try to find them and post them in this thread. They looked pretty good but carpet was faded a bit IIRC.

Here is another pair for $200.  I have not inquired about them.

The Boston pair are for a power window car.

I've never been able to check if the bright plastic disc behind the window crank handle would fully cover the cutout for the power window switch.  I'm guessing the corners would still peek out.

Yeah, I think for sure on the drivers side as the switch plate is huge.

Still, might be worth a premium to someone with power windows.

Or trade for what you need.

I picked up the white interior parts. With the exception of the rear seat they were not nearly as nice as advertised. He did have some other generic Ford stuff that I picked up. I will be offering some of it here. I will be keeping one of the 71 and the 72 wiring and vacuum schematics. I got one 1970, two 1971, and a 1972 plus the two brochure type items. I think the 58 light truck item is in amazing condition. I will be keeping the door panels to use the items on my repop panels. Most of the other stuff will be offered up separately.

"Taken off a car in '74 or '75..."  and improperly stored for 46 years.

They always forget that last part.

I know it sounds harsh but I cleaned my white comfort weave with lacquer thinner and tooth brush and then wipe with micro fiber. I tried everything and nothing was doing it so lacquer thinner on door panels and seats.

 

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