these parts are rare and hard to find to just purchase and reverse engineer...only the 71-73 enthusiast would know this not a fiberglass manufacturer. they dont know whats in demand or needed for market unless we tell them!

I sent the pillars to MP Couple months back. One was cracked, but they said they should be able to work with it.

I havent heard back in awhile. Sent email and left phone message.
Hoping available soon...

yeah they sent me an email and thought I was the guy who gave them the a-pillars, you better get with them and let them know their yours and where to return perhaps?, but they also said they get to them in month or two if you let them hang on to them a little longer, I guess their busy building a complete dash for a 65 mustang, keeping them busy.

Supercoupe,

Thanks for getting this going. I believe that the convertible trim is a cut off the top of a coupe trim part.

Thanks

If I'm not mistaken the Scott Drake ones have been available for several months.
I heard they are a fiberglass ill fitting / not good part.
Nothing to do with MP products

Scott Drake are made of Fiberglass and poor fitting parts? possibly... but its better than a 45 year old part that shatter's like glass by just looking at it wronng, I tried to find some pillars from a wrecking yard and they shipped to me in many broken pieces, they are so old and fragile now from UV and oxidized they are very fragile and hard to find. so Im blessed we have something in the aftermarket world now, Ive been bugging MP products for over two years now with NO RESULTS, Im aware Scott Drake is not an MP product but again IM sure its better than what we had to work with until now.

Well, I'm not trying to argue with you

They have been out for two years



Here is reviews off someones site

Surprisingly poor quality from Scott Drake

Waited over a month for these, they were taken out of the mold too soon. The curve at the bottom where it goes into the door jam is too tight; and would break if we installed. There is also no lip where the piece meets the windshield as on the original, so when they are installed you can easily see the fiberglass inside of the molding through the windshield. They only show a pic of one side of them for a reason, i would only use these if there were absolutely no alternative, especially for $175.

✘ No,
I do not recommend this product.

Poor Fit

Both sides fit adequately at the top but neither would fit where they mount to the door jam at the bottom. The curve on that part is too tight and has to be broken to mount75to the door jam. For 175 buck this is a bad deal.

✘ No,
I do not recommend this product.
