1972 Mustang Coupe Hard Top w/ 69,000 original miles.
Bright Red w/ Black Interior
Standard 6 cylinder 250 CI 1V
3 speed Manual Tranny
This Mustang has been in my family since my dad purchased it for my Mom in 72 form the local Ford dealership in Ft Collins, CO. My dad had it painted once (same as original) and had the dash pad replaced. other then that it is all original. I am in a quandry as to whether I want to keep it original or upgrade the engine and tranny. Just don't know yet. A nice powerful Mustang sounds really tempting.
How do you remove the original knob from the window crank handle? This knob is all tore up and I am replacing it, but I don't know how to remove the old one. Appreiate any advice.

They are pressed together. I had to drill/grind out the knob bushing at the back side being careful not to damage the handle. If you get the replacement knobs you should be able to see how the parts fit together. Be careful not to press the new knob together too tightly or it won't rotate/spin.
