The idea here, that I have my car´s Marti Report is that we could everything it says and see what it really means...

Can anyone help me decode the report? I mean... Now i have to learn about the options of my car in order to start getting the parts missing... I think this post could also help everyone to learn about that kind of factory information Smile

I am not sure which part of the report you need decoding.

Please elaborate.

Well... Pretty much everything? Jeje!! Jokes apart (i'm not that stupid) what i'm trying to do here is to undestand everything so good that i know which especific part i'll need... For example, lets start with the extra cooling option... That means my radiator is bigger that an I6 one or i'm missing an extra radiator?
Another one... The export heavy duty suspension...
And abortar one for now... The accessory packaging?! What?! Je!

Well BT, that's a start!!

It is my understanding that the "extra cooling" would equate to your car having the heavy duty radiator that was found on the 351C. It is not an additional radiator.

I am thinking you may also have the "staggered rear shock absorbers" as part of the suspension package upgrade.

I am not sure about the reference to the "Accessory Packaging" but I am sure that someone will chime in, possibly Don (OMS) or one of the Technical folks. The other "options" seem pretty straight forward to me. The "one of one" thing, of course, equates to your car having that unique engine/transmission combination.

Hope this helps.

I'm curious why you are trying to bring it back to a completely stock car when you already changed the color.

If your parts are good and working I'd save the money and put it into other things.

The History with the colour is in other post somewhere... I bought the car and i had like 2000 doloars left to spend which was all into interior trim, tires and so... I had that green in my garagge for other car and i just used it to the fastback in order to use the car as soon as Possible...

I didnt know the car was in some ways unique... We discovered that here last week!!

Now i decided to start investigating what i have and what i dont in order to start buying things one by one and some day have the hOle original factory car back together... Paint included...
Meanwhile the car is usable as is.. The back to factory is like an alternative project for this car...
Before i knew the rare car it was, my plan was a big v8 etc... Now the upgrades are gonna go to a back to originality project..

BT, thanks!! You are a wise mustang man, je! You're useful of course! Although, nothing is direct undestanding to an uruguayan men who has never seen another 71-73 mustang in Person! Je!!
Later we'll gonna get there... Feel like all of you are my mustang teachers and i'm not that clever!! Jeje

Dont worry... Every project is enjoyable... If your's not working, enjoy the piece for piece restoration.. I do that too! :p
Those moments is when i learn the most... Grab a nut and treat it like it was the best nut ever produced... Understanding it's funtion, etc...
RestOre a car for me is much more than finish the car in Order to use it...
Enjoy and count with me fOr whatever i can be helPfull!
