    I think it is worth it to have a look. If you are looking for an original car , this could be a very good choice. Personally I think the price is good, but I am from Europe, so prices are generally higher here anyway. Everything seems to be original under the hood, which is quite rare. It also...

    center dash bezel for car with air and guages

    Hi Hemikiller, I thought that all (1973)  convertibles had the black center panel and not the woodgrain. I have the instrument package with the center instruments in my car and it is black with Chrome and no woodgrain. Maybe it was changed by the previous owner , so if you have more info ,that...

    Convertible quarter panel alignment

    Thanks for the advise regarding the weatherstrip and coasters. We will definitely check everything before painting. Would be a real shame to modify stuff afterwards and damage fresh paint...

    Thanks for the info Steve! Hopefully a company will start the production of correct hood hinges with phosphate and oil as well. Still looking for a NOS set...  all the used ones have a lot of play.

    Convertible quarter panel alignment

    Thanks for your reply and the table! I will have to compromise here and there. As you mentioned , These cars have large tolerances. I had a look at some convertibles on ebay and none of them are perfect with panel alignments, so I guess I have to be less precise with my project sometimes ;-)

    Convertible quarter panel alignment

    Hi guys, i am in the process of replacing the quarter panels on my 1973 Mustang convertible. These cars are very flexible! My restorer has installed the right panel already. He says that the gap between the door and the top of the quarter panel is about 3 millimeters more than the bottom ( on...

    Back seat panel alignment convertible.

    I've found this one online and took a screenshot. It seems that the driverside corner is higher with most cars.

    Back seat panel alignment convertible.

    Hi guys, I am restoring a 1973 convertible. I noticed a big alignment issue of the backseat panel. It looks like it was welded in like this in the factory.  The question is , would you leave it this way or would it be better to correct the panel? I am not sure if you would notice it when...
