Hey just a FYI it looks like your fold down frame work is out of an early 71 ,,, no support on sides of the trap door
Later 71 and 72-3's had full metal panels on both sides of the trap door
Ford must have added these for support reasons ... you may want to fabricate something while it's all open.

I can probably get you some pictures if you need them

Hope you got the spare tire mount for the fold down. It moves the spare to the RH side and has to be a space saver spare. BF Goodrich was the mfg. They are pretty expensive and ask for it to be inflated before you purchase. Also be cautious several people got killed inflating them when new they explode if too much air in. Just the bracket is usually around $100. A correct NOS spare can be hundreds.

Also do some research there are several different versions of the spare. Some earlier some later. The later ones are cheap and not sought after but people try to pass them off as for earlier cars. There are also Chrysler wheels and GM wheels. Know for sure what you are looking at before you buy.
Looks like it is going pretty good hope everything fits when you get doors and trunk lid on.

Thanks For the help. I did notice they were different and got some photos from another guy. I am going to need a early 71 hood latch to.

Thanks for the info. I just made note of it in my growing list. The floors on the shell were done by the previous owner and weren’t done the best. I decided to leave them as is instead of redoing them.

It would be easy enough to make some sheet metal supports if you haven't already bought some
If you need the dual mount style for a mach 1 the L & R extensions are expensive and hard to find
You can use the later single mount type as long as your not looking to be concours correct

Newold.
That is the spare tire bracket the "J" hook attaches to. If you look at Davids illustration of the space saver tire bracket you will will notice a similar style place for the "J" hook bolt to attach to that bracket. (The basic number 1488 shown for the bolt in the illustration is incorrect, the correct number is 1448).     Smile
