  1. aslanefe is right on the money. Both the quarter and door glass are different between '69 and '70, and the reason is because they switched the location of the stainless weatherstrip piece. The easiest way to visualize this is to imagine laying '70 glass on top of '69 glass. They will be the same size, except one will be all glass and the other one will be partially stainless molding. In other words, the glass is a different size but the glass plus stainless makes them both the same, so mixing the two is not possible. I have a set of each and photographed them together, unfortunately my photos suck but give you the gist.
  2. Welcome to the site! Looks like you've got a Metuchen-built car based on the wavy tag ... Going from memory here, I have the book at home...no guarantee these are right* DK GR M Dark Green Metallic paint GT Heavy duty suspension (aka GT suspension) TT Two-tone hood (black out) DE Dual exhaust CL ? RM Racing mirrors MO Rocker moldings HP Hood pins *Buck tags varied from plant-to-plant and were changed on the fly, so there is no definitive definition anywhere. They were a short-hand memo to the assembly workers and used whatever code the plant manager thought was good enough.
  3. Welcome to the forum, Mike. It depends upon the model year and engine. You'll need something like this for a small block: https://www.cjponyparts.com/scott-drake-motor-mount-bracket-engine-frame-side-for-1966-plus-style-motor-mounts-pair-small-block-v8-1965-1970/p/EFB8/
  4. Changing spark plugs must be a delight.
  5. Nice restoration! I've said it before but I'm so glad you preserved this rare piece of Mustang history. Nice looking car!
  6. I'd agree about the 1.14 being right for an automatic 302. The size should be embossed on the carb body. I used to see boxes of 2100's at swap meets but as time goes by not so much. FI Fox bodies are the new classics now. I found the following chart on the internet, I can't vouch for it's accuracy. 0.98 = 190 CFM 1.01 = 240 CFM 1.02 = 245 CFM 1.08 = 287 CFM 1.14 = 300 CFM 1.21 = 351 CFM 1.23 = 356 CFM 1.33 = 424 CFM
  7. The 1.08 was correct for a 302 manual transmission car. I think the automatic got a bigger one.
  8. So my car's birthday came and went last week. I was in Minneapolis so I couldn't take her out. I did cruise on Memorial Day. Many more cruises to come. Really hard to believe the ole girl's 50. We started dating when I was 16.
  9. I read she passed away at age 97. Here's a scene from her TV show (She's not in it but I like the car)
  10. I forgot about NAPA's Echlin parts. Used them for years.
  11. Scott Drake makes this reproduction that's probably as good as any. Since we all know reproductions are a crap-shoot in this hobby, I keep a spare handy in case of failure. I've got an older repop on my car that's held up well for several years (knock on simulated wood grain) I don't know if anyone makes a male version, someone else will chime in I'm sure.
  12. It's been a while since I've looked at mine but there is a lot of adjustment available in the convertible top frame but I don't know about the cylinder. Was your top and weatherstripping recently replaced? It takes a while for the weatherstripping on top of the windshield to settle. As long as your latches are holding the top snug and reasonably aligned without being unscrewed to the point of falling out, you're probably ok.
  13. Can you imagine a car today being delivered to the Houston DSO (or anywhere else for that matter) without A/C? I can remember those days - just one more thing to make me feel old :)
  14. If used parts can't be found, buying the '68 part and modifying seems to be the way to go.
