Our cars may be rare after all. I wonder how many of these are Sprints, Boss351s or 429SCJ?

Wow, take a look at the sheet metal on those beautiful fastbacks, That sure is something that you dont see in Buffalo!! We have 6-7 year old cars with the bodies rotting right of the cars driving the roads around here. I think that Mathews Mustang should bring those bodies up to my house, and I will take very good care of them. lol,,,,Dave,,, HMMMM , I think I will give him a call??? lol

The more that die makes more precious the ones that live.

That is just a little over two hours from my house. I am feeling a road trip coming on. Still looking for that pesky battery apron support bracket. Interesting how you can miss things in your own backyard. If anyone else is considering a purchase from him and would like some help let me know.

There is one similar to that where I live called Mustang Village in Pensacola FL. I don't think there was a single usable part on any of those cars there. So rusty from this humid environment. Its a good advertising concept though.

I rebuilt 95% of my car mechanically and aesthetically from reproduction parts. There is a handful of parts that require a donor, original is always better.

Looking at that photo those cars have been open to the elements for years. Interior and wiring would pretty much be shot. trunks and Quarters would be work to make usable.

as for the apron battery support bracket. Don at OHIO mustang has them, you can get them reproduction as well. they come with the Concourse Battery holder kit.

stuff i would grab, urethane bumpers, mach 1 engine harness(for parts), roll down quarter window parts. if any of the cars have electric windows i would grab it and use it as a starting point, Strut rods(the aftermarket made in china ones are garbage) rear sway bar mounts in the frames. Staggered rear shock cross members from the chassis.

I bet most of the cowls are shot and not worth the effort.

H,
he needs the weld on outer support.
I am trying to get them made but companies around here want to much money to make the tooling and then the part. But yet they have no work ???

New manufacturer of some pretty nice strut rods now, ones we have now are smooth and painted black.
You probably had the old crappy [ looked like cast iron ] rough ones

Don thanks for keeping on the lookout for the apron bracket for me. Placed a call over the Mathews Mustangs and left a message. According to the 2009 MM article sounded like he was going out of business. May not have the cars in the photo any longer. I will try and find out.
