I have posted this on forum but will put here to keep the rust all together. This is Scotty Strickland's mostly Mustang junk yard in Oxford, N.C.. He does sale parts and has more R codes than anyone I know of but will not sell them. To contact him go to Facebook and look him up.

Has sound with the slide show also.

Stock 1973 Mustang Convertible with a 351C 2v and C6
Modified 1970 Mach 1 M-Code with a 351C 4v Manual

Pictures taken 4-5 Years ago of a place in South Jersey call (Bob) Gelsi's Garage. 20-25 years ago I used to roam his yard searching for parts. It's still there but it's been abandoned for a long time now.

Look up Colorado mustang on the internet. I found a picture on there of stacked mustangs as far as you could see. Made me cry........wife thought I was sick :)

I bought parts from them before and as I talked to them on the phone they informed me that at one time, they had 2000 mustangs for parts. Not now though.

@rackerm If I remember correctly Gelsi passed away in 2019, and it looks like on google maps most of the mustangs have been either moved or scrapped. There are still 10+ there in the back though

Here is my back yard. 65 A code 4 speed been off the road since the early 80's. Behind it is the only 1972 Q code 4 speed Mach 1 T-5 German model Mustang in the T-5 register. Even though very rare never been worth fixing had 32,000 miles on it. Have the marti to prove T-5. The coupe is a C code auto with pony interior. Not too rusty just banged up.

If real T5 cannot show the word Mustang anywhere on the car, only running horse on grille and gas cap. My 71 Convertible spent 29 years of its life in Germany but my car is NOT A T5 ! My car was registered in England for a few years (before 1980), how and when it got there remains a mystery since there are no known US owners but I do have the name and address of the owner at the time in England! My Convertible was shipped back to US in 2009, sitting in my in-laws garage since 1997 not being driven at all!!

Oh it is real here is the Marti report and it plainly lists T-5 package. The owner was an US Army sergeant stationed in Germany. The military would ship your car home for $1.00 so he brought it back with him. It is pouring rain I have posted in the past the door sticker which also states "For Export Only" and DSO of 90 if I remember correct. It is in the T-5 register. 

The owner was racing a camaro and went off road and hit a pole on the left front corner. Due to the costs it has never been worth the work to fix it. Rare does not always mean valuable. 

See Marti attached. I forgot to hit the attach button. It should be there now.
