Weekly Fun Question for 2-25-2012
Good Day All!

Specifics on the Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) can be found under "Important Threads" on this Forum.

This week's WFQ was submitted by C9ZX (THANKS, Chuck) as the result of his having posted the winning response to last week's VIP WFQ. The problem this week is:

Assuming both cars are original, please identify the difference(s) (other than the VIN, date codes and part numbers) in components between a 1971 Mach 1 and a 1972 Mach 1. The first Member who can correctly cite the most number of differences will be declared the Winner.

Good Luck!
Please keep in mind that some of the "differences" are not unique to the Mach1 but also exist across the Mustang lines for the 1971 and 1972 Mustangs. The desired responses:

1. Pop-open gas cap on 71, twist-on on 72.
2. Different script on trunk panel
3. Slot added on’72 deck lid for exposed, pop riveted lock cylinder retaining clip
4. Trunk lock secured via clip inside the trunk lid sheet metal in 71, secured via clip inserted from the outside bottom and held in place with 2 rivets on 72 (after March 1, 1972).
5. No M, C or J coded engines available in ‘72
6. Close ratio transmission not available on ‘72
7. Square panel drain plug in ’72 and a round plug for ‘72
8. Seat belt warning light on 72, not on 71
9. Dual vertical hood latch to grille support on 71 (through June 71), single on 72
10. Black plastic fender shield at rear top of front fenders on 71, not on 72.
11. Black plastic splash shield on license plate light on 71, not on 72.
12. Different Radios
73mach1 and Detector

Do the RIGHT thing.

Good Day All,

To recap the question:

Assuming both cars are original, please identify the difference(s) (other than the VIN, date codes and part numbers) in components between a 1971 Mach 1 and a 1972 Mach 1. The first VIP Member who can correctly cite the most number of differences will be declared the Winner.

Please keep in mind that some of the "differences" are not unique to the Mach1 but also exist across the Mustang lines for the 1971 and 1972 Mustangs. The desired responses:

1. Pop-open gas cap on 71, twist-on on 72.
2. Different script on trunk panel
3. Slot added on’72 deck lid for exposed, pop riveted lock cylinder retaining clip
4. Trunk lock secured via clip inside the trunk lid sheet metal in 71, secured via clip inserted from the outside bottom and held in place with 2 rivets on 72 (after March 1, 1972).
5. No M, C or J coded engines available in ‘72
6. Close ratio transmission not available on ‘72
7. Square panel drain plug in ’72 and a round plug for ‘72
8. Seat belt warning light on 72, not on 71
9. Dual vertical hood latch to grille support on 71 (through June 71), single on 72
10. Black plastic fender shield at rear top of front fenders on 71, not on 72.
11. Black plastic splash shield on license plate light on 71, not on 72.
12. Different Radios

Based on the above, I have decided that both respondents (73mach1 and Detector) are "Winners." Since this is 73mach1's third win, his subscription for VIP status is being executed.

Congratulations to Jay (73mach1) and Detector on their wins.

GREAT question Chuck!
