parts roadtrip in the morning, several questions
#1
Heading out on a 200 mile roadtrip to buy a center console, honeycomb panel, taillights, and anything else worth buying. Prices are really good. Any particular parts I should look for that are valuable enough to make the trip worth while. Hoping to get working ram air parts too. Is there anything ultra hard to find that might pay for my trip???? He has two center consoles so I imagine I will get atleast one good one. Is there a holy grail part that I need to look for?

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

What is a 9 inch competition rear end? Sounds like something I should put in my car as well?

I have never been in the back of my car, are windows actually supposed to roll down? What kind of price do these parts usually get? The car pictured is a vert and roll down windows, is mechanism the same? Talked to guy and have pics of my initial parts list.

Just looked and saw power rear windows was an option rarely seen. I will see if he has them. Doubt it but you never know.

Apart from electric windows, fastbacks didn't come out with roll down quarter windows. But they were designed to, so the coupe mechanisms bolt right in to the fastback without any modifications required except to drill a hole for the winding handles in the rear trim piece. I would guess that a convertible window setup would be the same as a coupes, with only the shape of the window being different, and you'd be using your original quarter window anyway. If you do get the window mechanisms don't forget to unbolt the two angled "window stops" that are attached to the inner quarter panel.

No side windows is a good look I reckon, and a very satisfying mod.

Haaaaa well I ASSURE you if he has them and you give the slightest clue you want them or need them the price will jump 5 to 10 times the actual value. My car was delivered with them and I've been looking for original set ups for OVER 3 years...and I've been screwed over by the best of Mustang suppliers and individuals just because they KNOW i need them to keep my car original. Consequently my car is STILL not finished. I was quoted 1100 to 3500 JUST FOR SWITcHES and BEZELS!

so if you find said power windows... good luck and let me know.

[attachment=25449]I returned and I am happy with my haul. I had a 200 mile drive each way so my 11 year old and I went on a roadtrip. We met Steve at his house in Oakridge, MO (would not come up on Garmin Nuvi so he talked me right to his front door. He had two or 3 parts cars that are currently being parted out plus a bunch of boxes of the stuff from previous cars, A 71, 72, and 69 are in various states of restoration and all in all he and his family were great hosts. I purchased two taillights, full canter console with everything I need to get my car back to the way it came. I also got a good seat, a fan shroud, door brackets, cill plates and a window cleaner tank with point. My car is missing the tank and he explained that my wiper button controls it. He also showed me how to get the shoulder harnesses and where they mount. I could have spent much more time looking through the bits and pieces but with my car somewhat new to me and a mediocre memory feeding the what I needs, I got what I knew I wanted and now have an email for the items I forgot. It was worth the trip an if you are ever in the need of some original parts from near Cape Girardea you should give him a visit. He had a clean Nasa hood but I already have one. Here is a picture of what I bought. He has a relatively complete 71 vert he is currently parting out.

He did have an original mini spare but it was not for sale, his son gets it is his car. I tried but failed on that one.
