My 72 Q code conv
#11
That's a nice one Ray! I hope to see it in person some time when I get to OKC again. We have training scheduled for Norman this fall, I'm not sure if I'll get that trip, I hope so though. I'd have to build in more time to visit with you and Chuck.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Very well optioned car. I would leave it as is. Dumb question but where did you get that report? I'd like to see one for my car. Thanks for sharing.

Yes. Thanks Iyman!
We might have to re-open this door mirror discussion in a new thread.

I'd like to learn as much as I can. My car is very unmodified. And the few things that are wrong are easily corrected. I'm working on putting things back as close to 100% as possible.

Never a dumb question! Smile

Marti sells them - looks like they'd be $55.00 for your car.

From what I can tell - looks like you are going to take your Mustang on a long trip. I hope it is a safe trip and you don't have to use the AAA service.

Have fun.

Ray, I would love to think that but Dec 3 last year got it back from this well known shop my way that supposedly had a tweaking out of the electric parking brake with the conversion of power disc front and rear to replace the drum assembly but all turned out to be more of a twerking dance on their part as they told me it brakes fine but just off the lot and onto the immediate highway when found no brakes, ie to find the cotter pin to the brake panel was broken by them as well, if it did not end up stopping via running off road, up a couple curbs, and trashing this guys front yard, in having no choice but a barrage of trees to an immediate hill to halt the vehicle going down a hill, only @ 50 yards from those trees. If the cotter pin was good, then, would have badly scored the rotors. As would be expected, the suspension and underneath got trashed badly and the fittings on the rear brakes became such a bad leaking problem, had to be rebuilt to the tune of any additional 3,000 dollars as well another ? for the bill at the dyno tune shop.

OK guys - 

In my never ending quest for more information on m y cars I ran across this old pic of the dealership where the convertible was sold new!  And about the same timeframe as when the convertible could have been there!
