    WTB: Cowl section

    I need a cowl section for my 72 Mustang. I really only need the passenger side, but the cowl hat on my '72 is rusted away. If you have one, let me know.

      69, I do not have one but you might want to try these guys as I have had very, very good luck getting stuff from them.

        RE: WTB: Cowl section

        69, I just spoke with a friend of mine in MS. (about 20 miles from me) who advised he has a black '72 MACH I that he is parting out. Unfortunately, he has cars stored at different places and this one is about 25 miles from where he is.

        He advised he is reasonably certain the cowl is intact and in good shape but noted he will have to check to make sure. He promised to try and get to the location in the next week or so.

        When he does, I will pass his phone number to you so that you can deal with him directly. He is NOT on the "Net" and dos not own a computer.

          My guy got back to me - - the cowl is NOT on the car that was being stripped out.

          I have come to understand that our site sponsor (OMS) may have one as they have a number of used parts. You might want to give Don a call.

            Thanks guys, I will check those out. Good suggestions.

            Cobra3073--regarding a parts car, the part of the cowl I need has to be cut out of the car--major structural. Your friend may not be clear on what I need. Here is an example of a full cowl section (for a '69): http://www.cjponyparts.com/product.asp?pn=COWL6

            I really only need the passenger side (about half).

              69,

              I am pretty sure he knows what it looks like (he has been dealing in used mustang parts for @ 25 years) but I will get with him this weekend and make sure. He is one of those "pack rat" guys who (along with his agents) scrounges junk yards for cars (mustangs) and tear them down to their most valuable part, a true Renaissance manSmile!

              Will get back to you as soon as possible.

                69,

                I got with Gary who assured me he "knows what the cowl is." He also advised he no longer has anything left of that particular car.

                Did you check with Don (at OMS)?

                  RE: WTB: Cowl section

                  It certainly wasn't meant as an insult. My experience has been that people don't know what I am talking about. I had a guy here in the LA area that had a car he was parting out. I told him to save the cowl for me--he was trying to get rid of the car as quick as possible and said he would cut out the section I needed. He cut what I needed in half and threw the other half away--basically, he saved the firewall and ruined a good cowl section. So, when you initially said he wasn't sure if he had that part, it reminded me of that story. I would think a person would remember cutting out the cowl. Anyway, again, no offense intended. I haven't had time to call Don as yet.

                    RE: WTB: Cowl section

                    There are hand full of guys taking the time to take in extra 71-73 cars and chop em up.

                    Ohio mustang is a start,

                    71steed

                    Hemikiller

                    There is a guy in maryland

                    The cowl is going to the hardest part to find intact. I ended up having one fabricated to replace sections of my original cowl.

                    At one point I was considering buying a perfectly good 73 coupe and chopping it up for parts the only issues with that car was it was a vinyl roof and the top was rusted away.

                    But I didn't want to start a junk yard in my driveway.

                    Just food for thought. I looked for 4 months couldn't find anything then had it fabricated fir and extra 500$

                    A replacement cowl from a parts car was a lot more

                      69,

                      NO, I was not offended - - I think he was a bit miffed that I asked him about it again but he will get over itSmile.

                      This guy is a real dealer and usually have cars parked (stored) at different locations around the area. While mostly mustangs, he also deals in other Ford and Lincoln Mercury vehicles.

                      Anyway, until you find one, I will keep my "eye" out for any possibilities.
