    New Spring advice front and rear, Height of fenders, Passenger side rear is lower by 5/8" now....or maybe a bit lower.

    After 50 years it could be a million things causing the height to be slightly different side to side…..if you get it close, like 1/2” (your number may be different)or so or less no one will know save for yourself :) Some say that after 50 years the torque that is applied from one side of the car...

    Car Died while driving, changed solenoid, Still would not start. Charged battery, and now starter continues to turn, even when ignition is in the OFF

    T This is exactly that: an AMK concours Starter Solenoid, NIB,  I had lying around from a 65' build. Your reply is EXACTLY the perfect explanation. NEVER dreamed that could happen. Now it makes sense. Car kind of acts like it cooked either my ignition switch, or the battery is just that gone...

    Car Died while driving, changed solenoid, Still would not start. Charged battery, and now starter continues to turn, even when ignition is in the OFF

    Well, took the old Mach 1 out for a late night spin and, well, not good. Car died while approaching an intersection. Kind of like all at once. Felt electrical in nature. Engine would NOT turn over. Dead. Headlights on. Interior lights on. After a tow (never fun) I got her home. I had a new...

    Front shock upper rubber isolators so deteriorated that....

    Thanks Tim. I now see that the diameter of the hole in the Shock tower cap is less than the 1.25" OD of the bushings, so I will remove them as you describe to get both upper bushings installed for each side for the front shocks.  Thanks again, Brad

    Front shock upper rubber isolators so deteriorated that....

    thanks for the repsonse, the suggestion and the link. I am glad these are black. If my new shocks are delayed these are cheap enough to use as a stop gap until the new ones arrive. Best, Brad

    New Spring advice front and rear, Height of fenders, Passenger side rear is lower by 5/8" now....or maybe a bit lower.

    it is not at all urgent...i was curious as to price, and shipping, but mine really doesn't look that bad. the holes won't get wet as it is always garaged, and I will repair it when i do other body work...but i thought it might be a good option as you suggested. Best, Brad

    Front shock upper rubber isolators so deteriorated that....

    I have new shocks and springs on the way.....I have been trying to defeat some rattles, which are too numerous today. I think I found another. The Rubber isolators on the front shocks have decayed and the driver's side does not actually seem to be supported at this point! When I push on the...

    How to remove Mustang script emblem currently on deck lid of 1972 Mach 1?

    I took your advice, thank you!, and pried the Mustang script emblem off with a plastic putty knife, carefully, as I did not have a trim removal tool. While I do have three little holes, I think I will patch temporarily with grey silicone and address when more body work is done a bit later...
