Found build sheet under passenger seat on top of the pedestal.
#1
runninpony 
I left my 71 coupe parked outside all week and it rained several days, and the passenger side carpet was soaked so I pulled it in to take the carpet out and as I suspected the carpet had never been out. I was pleasantly surprised to find the build sheet in really good condition under the passenger seat under the carpet on top of the pedestal. I also found enough of another one under the gas pedal to be able to read the vin for my car on it. But the other surprise was finding a turn signal stalk sandwiched between the carpet and sound deadener pad and a few screws. Over the years I have found quite a few neat pieces such as a ford coffee cup,window crank screw covers still on the paper(2),door jam switch and build sheets for other cars including a torino. I would like to know what you guys have found?








I am just here to eat my lunch and screw stuff up!!!!!Haha

That's cool you found the build sheets after all those years. I found two build sheets on my 73 convert when I pulled the carpet out way back in 1974. I bought a used Lincoln Town Car a few years back and found a gold Mont Blanc pen under the seat, they sell for about $180 online! I also found a cell phone under the seat of the same car. I found an end wrench and a nitrous hose under the back seat of our 2004 Mach 1. Other than that some nuts, bolts, and coins.

I found my final inspection sheet for my 72 convertible under the passenger side carpet also, but the weirdest thing was I also found a fork under the padding... must have been lunch time???

That would have been priceless, but it was at least 15 years ago and I think we were too disgusted to think about taking pictures! LOL

I found all sorts of interesting stuff in my Mach 1. Steak knife, a white pleather leisure shoe (like the ones Randy Quaid wore on National Lampoon Vacation), a plastic cap gun, a scary-looking stuffed rabbit, an aluminum comb, a vintage oil can spout (behind a headlight bucket), an 8-track tape, and a can of 'something' that was pretty much some kind of black sludge but had absolutely no smell whatsoever.

The most interesting thing I found was discovered about 4 months after I got the car. The previous owner said they lost the keys... so I drilled out the ignition key cylinder for steering purposes.

Yeah... I found the keys embedded in the carpet under the driver seat when I was pulling up the carpet and removing the driver seat. (where's the smacking my own forehead smilie, anyway?)
