  1. I agree with this. Put gas shocks on a stock '68 that I owned years ago and the ride quality just plain disintegrated to the "buckboard" quality that they mention on the video. JIM
  2. Does that mean we should replace or upgrade with a '70 harness if we are cruising around in our '69's? I am more cognizant of the fire risks these days,..... What I remember as a "recent" restoration of my convertible is now actually 30 plus year old electrical components and other parts in a 53 year old car. Time flies when your having fun. JIM
  3. It will be worth the wait, car looks great. I've been looking at that generation and the prices are going up almost daily
  4. Well, the most recent Mustang Club Magazine has a cover article on the Mustang II in the mid 70's that only had a few convertibles made by an outside company that did cut the top off. Well give the young man the benefit of the doubt,.. "Mustang II, Boredom Zero!!"
  5. Hello Mr M' and welcome I find the headroom challenging and I'm "only" 6' 2" What hurt me "literately" was when I had the original 30 year old at the time, seat cushions reupholstered. I climbed in my car like I always do and because of the change in the seat cushion height, I banged the side of my head on the top frame so hard I was seeing stars, so seat height is a critical factor and can vary depending on the cars condition. They now make seat mounts that lower the whole track, I used a simple hand built fixed mount before these were available. I am sitting somewhat in the originally designated back seat area, and am quite comfortable, after the modifications. By all means try to get a few rides in some cars of this age, maybe a local club.
  6. ....To love a car where the manufacturer originally used the marketing term "razzle-dazzle" :) :)
  7. I don't know that much about OHM'S law, I think he rode around in a chauffeured Rolls Royce, solving murder mysteries, HA
  8. Being the long time Central Florida resident, I always say a little thanks to the inventors of air conditioning. My wife attended John B. Gorrie Elementary in Tampa, I believe he resided in Pensacola, which is near the area of a certain person who posts on this forum and is good with electrons. : )
  9. Just looked, the photos are 7 years old, buyer beware
  10. This is online as of Thursday Morning;
  11. Thanks guys I will experiment this weekend, let you know how it goes. JIM
  12. hello there Yep 69 = Windsor Ontario Stock pump, one rubber or flexible line and one hard line, no idea if that is a proper setup. It does work. Gauge was fine for years and now shows uncomfortably low oil pressure. Thanks
  13. Had a question on changing out the sender. With the 351 and power steering, it looks like I need to either unbolt and lay down the power steering pump or actually drain and disconnect the lines, which I am loath to do. My mechanical skills are not quite up to the level of my peers on this forum. The whole issue has come about because of a low gauge reading. I have read many posts about the lack of accuracy of our gauges circa 1969, but the temp and fuel both are exactly where they have always been, the oil is disturbingly low. Thanks for any input. JIM
  14. If I'm reading the date code correctly, today is 51 years since that glorious day in Metuchen. (I winder if that is an oxymoron) :) JIM P.S. Dog is not original equipment
