    1969 Cougar
  • Birthday 08/29/1966
  1. I recently swapped in this Powermaster starter. Works good and fixed my slow hot start problems. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pwm-9162/year/1969/make/ford/model/mustang
  2. Fiero seats do recline and do flip forward.
  3. I bet the shop vac would get it if you taped over all the holes.
  4. From WCCC: " C8AB-7630323-A Usually these will not have knobs. Plan on purchasing new knobs. Ask about our B grade knobs that will have some pitting or lusting issues. This is the correct "shorty" crank for a 1968 Cougar front window crank. It is the same length as the rear 1968 - 1970 but uses a center screw instead of a side Allen set screw. The 1969 - 1970 crank (with AM or no radio) looks the same but is longer. These shorter cranks were also used in conjunction with the factory door speakers used in the 1969 - 1970 so as not to rub on the tops of the speaker grilles. The portion that attaches to the splined shaft on the window regulator protrudes from the back 3/16" and will not clear the 71-73 rear interior panels properly. Ford part number C8AZ-7630322-A. The casting number seen on the backside commonly reads C8AB-7630323-A." https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/19wicrus.html?attribs=87
  5. Cougars didn't receive the Mach I style door panels but I can confirm they fit. I'm not sure I understand your question, but inner door shells are the same so a lot of parts will interchange.
  6. Thanks guys. I thought I would need some special dual sending unit and the T never occurred to me. It sounds like the T fitting is the way to go.
  7. Is it possible to install an aftermarket oil pressure gauge and keep the stock warning light functional? I would be mounting the gauge down on the console where its hard to see, so I'm thinking it would be nice to have the light working just in case.
  8. Not exactly hidden as it sticks to the top of the windshield, but I put this one in my truck and the reception is actually better than with the stock antenna. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_20615_Metra-44-UA200.html

  10. I ended up sanding down the original stuff and just putting the new vinyl on top.
  11. I got mine from Summit. Wheel Vintiques is the brand. I don't remember the model #, but you want the Ford bolt pattern, obviously and the wheel needs to be designed for the small hub cap.
  12. I cut a repro bezel to fit. I had some more pictures of the process but imageshack lost them. Anyway, what I did was cut the opening wide enough for the din and filled the gaps top and bottom with some black plastic. I had to mill the sides of the bezel a little to squeeze the head unit through. The cage will not fit through at all so I cut the front of the cage at an angle to match the back of the bezel. With everything assembled its nice and tight.
  13. +1. And fix the sketchy wiring. Make the car reliable and safe first.
  14. Do you have a way to view your choices together, like at a show or other car event? I had the same problem. I have two colors that I really like and I don't think either one would be a bad choice. I'd see a car in color #1 and say "that's the color!", then I'd see another car in color #2 and say "what was I thinking, that's the color!" Individually, I like them both, but when I see the two colors together, its obvious which one I prefer.
