Weekly Fun Question for March 8, 2014
Good Day All!

Specifics on the Weekly Fun Question (WFQ), to include information on awards and prizes for Winners, can be found on the thread below.


http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-what-...tion--5488

Please note that VIP Members are not eligible to participate in this exercise as a different problem is being presented on the VIP WFQ Forum for their entertainment and "bragging rights."

When you submit your response, the specifics will not usually be viewable by others until all the responses are released at the end of the exercise.

The Problem:

Which of the following Mustangs would not have had "raised white letter" tires available as an option "from the factory?"

a. 1971 Mach 1

b. 1972 Convertible

c. 1973 Grandé

d. 1973 Hardtop

The FIRST Member to respond with the desired response will be declared the "Winner." Remember, "edited" responses will not count.

This exercise will end at approximately 7:00 PM (CST) on Monday, March 10, 2014.

Good Luck!

I'm going to say 72 Convertible. Not certain, but....

Rusty, a 1973 Mach 1, needs a lot of work.
Billy, a 1976 Ford Bronco, also needs a lot of work.

To repeat the problem:

Which of the following Mustangs would not have had "raised white letter" tires available as an option "from the factory?"

a. 1971 Mach 1

b. 1972 Convertible

c. 1973 Grandé

d. 1973 Hardtop


Background:

The raised white letter tires option was available on ALL Mustangs built in 1972 and 1973. The option was not available on ANY 1971 Mustangs.

The desired response is "a. 1971 Mach 1."

Based on the above, the desired response was not submitted by any of the responders.

Source: "Mustang ... by the Numbers (1967-1973)" by Kevin Marti, Pages 120, 121 and 122.

I am a little confused: the 1971 Mach was most certainly available with optional RWL tires from the factory. Standard wheel/ tire combo was 2-piece hub caps and 14" white-walls. 15" steelies or Magnums with RWL 15" tires werd optional.

Sounds like "disconnect" discussion time as it relates to the accuracy of "sourcesSmile."

I'm traveling so I cannot read the source pages. However I do know my 71 Mach 1 came from the factory with 15" steelies, 2 piece rings & caps and RWL tires.

Ths may be the first instance where Marti may be incorrect that I can recall. Still that is the official source so answer choice (A) is correct.

71 M-code Mach 1, Medium Blue/White Sport, 4R70W, 3L50, Factory Ram Air.
