VIP Weekly Fun Question for May 25, 2013
SUPERSTARS!

This week's VIP WFQ was submitted by Don65Stang who apparently has it "out for you guys."

The problem:

There are four (4) highly optioned H-Code convertibles that are all Wimbledon White with white interiors, have 15" Mag 500 wheels, FMX trans, 3.25 trac-lok rear, A/C, PW, PDB, plus many more of the same options. These cars we ordered 100% exactly the same way. You also know the following information about the cars:

Car 1 was produced in Oct 1970 with a major Canadian part (one of the cited options)
Car 2 was produced in May 1971, seven months after Car 1
Car 3 was produced two months after Car 2
Car 4 was produced one month after Car3

Please identify which Mustang(s) is/are most different, if any, and describe any differences that exist among the four cars.

Yes, I know, it is another MONSTER of a question but y'all are VIP Superstars, so have at itAngel!

This exercise will end at approximately 7:00PM (CST) on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, since Monday is a holiday.

Good Luck!

Car 4 is physically identical to Car 3 but is also the most different because it is a different model year vehicle and has different emissions requirements.
None

Do the RIGHT thing.

Well - Since I know I'm not here because I'm smart or know "all things Mustang," that leaves "paid the admission fee" as the most likely reason for my VIP membership. ;D

Can't wait to see a 'real' answer to this question - I rarely feel very 'Super Star' when I read these things. rofl

Cars 3 and 4 are 1972 cars, cars 1 and 2 are 1971 cars. The 1st car being Canadian has the headlights on relay with ignition added to Canadian cars.

SUPERSTARS!

It would appear that y'all are LUCKY that Don is not routinely developing the problems as most of you did not even make an attempt to respond to the question.

To repeat the problem:

There are four (4) highly optioned H-Code convertibles that are all Wimbledon White with white interiors, have 15" Mag 500 wheels, FMX trans, 3.25 trac-lok rear, A/C, PW, PDB, plus many more of the same options. These cars we ordered 100% exactly the same way. You also know the following information about the cars:

Car 1 was produced in Oct 1970 with a major Canadian part (one of the cited options)
Car 2 was produced in May 1971, seven months after Car 1
Car 3 was produced two months after Car 2
Car 4 was produced one month after Car3


The desired response:

Car 1 was built with a 351w. However, according to Marti, Ford didn’t keep track of which cars got a 351w versus the 351c.

Car 2 was built when the hood latch with the double support was being utilized.

Car 3 was built when the hood latch with the single support was being utilized.

Car 4 is physically identical in every way to Car 3.

There is no documented difference between Car 1, Car 2, and/or Car 3 so they are identical on paper even though there are physical differences, with the Windsor engine being a major difference.

Car 4 is physically identical to Car 3 but is also the most different because it is a different model year vehicle and has different emissions requirements.

The answer is Car 4 is the most different of the four cars.

Yes, I know, that Don65Stang guy has a twisted mind, huh?

Perhaps y'all will have better luck next weekSmile!

Documentation (The Mustang and Cougar Tagbook) shows the 1973 Mustangs were assigned serial numbers beginning in July 1973. It takes some "close" reading of the question but the question is legitimateSmile.

All of the other choices were based on Mustangs that could/would have been built during the 1972 model years.

Good point though as I usually try to cite the "source" on our questions/problems.

Someone else made a crack at one point about easing off because we have six kids. Now this advice goes the opposite direction...however, I'll pass this advice and suggestion on to my wife. Wink

FWIW, my wife read the question and said it was too wordy. Noted. I apologize for any confusion due to wordiness.

Source info for the answers:

Car 1 was built with a 351w. However, according to Marti, Ford didn’t keep track of which cars got a 351w versus the 351c.
Source: Marty's Tagbook p. 96 & Marty's Numbers Book p.98.

Car 2 was built when the hood latch with the double support was being utilized.

Car 4 is physically identical in every way to Car 3.

There is no documented difference between Car 1, Car 2, and/or Car 3 so they are identical on paper even though there are physical differences, with the Windsor engine being a major difference.

Car 4 is physically identical to Car 3 but is also the most different because it is a different model year vehicle and has different emissions requirements.
Source: Marty's Numbers, various pages.

The answer is Car 4 is the most different of the four cars.
