1973 Mustang Mach 1
Hey all -

I recently bought a 1973 mustang mach 1. It came installed with the standard three button door panel. I want to change it out for the deluxe woodgrain panels, but I'm not sure if I have to modify any clips/handles/locations of anything, etc. I want to know If I can simply put the new panel on and everything will line back up, or if I need to change anything.

Thanks for your input!

I don't think you have to change anything, it should all line right up.

I will get the woodgrain inserts, and the door handle latches are already in. I just want to know if they need to be moved anywhere different to accommodate the deluxe door panel

The latches and chrome handles are different

The deluxe latches drop the handle mounting hole down

Would that be something I would have to re-drill, or is there already a hole there?

Thanks Don!

Locations are the same - all you need are the right latch releases and interior door handles.

I just did this to mine. The only difference is the handles them selves as stated. But the delux handles will not bolt on to the inside latch. I made an extension for mine to lower the handle to the opening and fastened it to the hole that the standard handle used. Looks and works right. Otherwise you have to tear the latch out to install a delux latch. As far as the delux parts for the panels (wood grain , trim and etc. ) I have an extra set of them just missing one door pull.

There appears to be small brackets missing from the picture that goes around the cups.
