Rare 71 rear hood lip moldings
#1
Remember me tossing out what I thought were cheesy after market hood / fender rear hood trim parts only to find out they were ultra rare OEM Ford cheesy hood / fender rear trim parts?

I was looking at a very rusty 71 parts car tonight that I ended up not buying but the guy did have a few other loose parts for sale.

There they were - wired together and marked "71 Misc Trim"

Got all three pieces for one whole dollar!

Plus:

A full set of 73 style power window bezels with no pits and intact clips for a dollar each.

Gave another 5 bucks for two 5 gallon buckets absolutely full of fasteners / clips / nuts / bolts / small trim items - all removed from multiple 71 through 73 Mustangs.

Plus he gave me an ice cold Mountain Dew - how perfect is that!

$10 bucks of pure mustang joy!

well I will offer you a tidy profit on those 73 bezels and clips. TWO dollars!!!!

seriously I'll buy them!!!!!!! not really you have to charge 1500 before I'll buy and then if you'll kindly sell them out from under me after I've made a commitment I'll feel much more comfortable with life.

Wow! a 100% profit in one day!

Sorry - they are going on my 73 convert. The ones that came with the car are pitted and most of the clips are broke off.

I made a promise to a local Falcon enthusiast that if I ever turned up a better set he would get my old ones. He has 73 power windows that I sold him in a 65 Falcon but at the time I did not have any bezels.

I am most happy about the buckets of nuts and bolts!

They are only a buck - just go buy set like I did.

Found them at the first place I looked - what is the big deal?

Everything I tried to find was in the last place I looked...maybe I will start there first? but if I first start at the last place first, then the last place I looked would still be where I found it...nevermind.

Haa no problem, I would only be happy if you raise the price to 1000 or more just what I'm accustomed to. I'm hoping to get to some work on the car tonight, and it will end up with custom switches and custom interior when its all said and done she will look great....just not original. I still look just in case a set magically appears.
