Hi all, thanks for the add.   Recently acquired 72 vert, 351C Q.   First time back in a stang since I was in college ( 72 Grande 302)

Moose has a few issues to work out, but overall in good shape.  I'll be poking around for info and asking questions.

Welcome from Central New York. 

That's a pretty nice looking vert you got there. Pretty well set up too.

I've got some play in my tilt steering. What should I be looking at to tighten it up?

So, here's what I have seen don't match with Marti or are known to be replaced.  Please let me know if you spot anything else. 

Engine - not original. Has the correct stamp, .4 heads. Edelbrock intake & carb.

Paint - not original 5H (what is it? 6B light goldenrod? Or doesn't match any code?)

Radio - am/fm/8-track. Fm?

Top - currently black, has the glass

Ignition cylinder won't move to Accessory position, and I can't figure out how to remove. What position do I need?

Help please?
