  1. Unit number 284582 is too high for a 1969 Mustang...for any of the assembly plants. That VIN looks more like it belongs to a 1979 Mustang. Without the VIN from the inner fender, you may be stuck. I would want a Marti Report before assuming it was a T-5. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Very interesting! Good luck!

  3. I use 3M Dynatron Seam Sealer 550. AutoZone has it: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/3M-12-oz-grey-Dynatron-auto-seam-sealer-caulk/_/N-255s?itemIdentifier=167027
  4. Really??? I went to Oreily's first and they said they couldn't help me. I see it on their web site now... http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/BWD0/S422/02006.oap?year=1969&make=Ford&model=Mustang&vi=1132401&ck=Search_headlight+switch_1132401_1363&keyword=headlight+switch It is cheaper too. Are you running halogen headlights also?
  5. I had the same problem with a new switch (from Mustangs Unlimited) and halogen headlights. I purchased a BWD switch from Advanced Auto for about $24.00. The front spacer bracket was incorrect so I had to drill it out and weld on the one from my old switch. A bit of a PITA, but it works fine now. I am guessing it is just a better made switch or has a higher rated breaker switch in it. http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/bwd-headlight-switch-s404/5971098-P Bo
  6. - 1969 Fastback - Black paint, possible repaint multiple times, based on the ring indent around the missing 1/4 medallion. White paint under chips in door. - Black standard interior - Power Steering - Automatic transmission - Looks like a 8" rear, so probably a 302 - Looks like front disc brakes Tinted windshield, but it doesn't look original Clear glass Without options... No - Mach 1 No - A/C No - Remote mirror, but there is a strange patch job on the door No - Tilt column No - Fold down rear seat No - Rim-blow No - Sports Appearance package Mods...

  7. The rear view mirror bezel is different (1969 = rectangle bezel, 1970 = round bezel) Which means the rear view mirror remote connector is different too (1969 = straight, 1970 = 90 degree angle) So, if you use 1969 door panels, you will need to use 1969 mirrors too.
  8. I have the same problem. I lubricated the shaft and the seal for the flapper, but it still gets stuck in defrost. It seems like the problem is the rubber seal around the flapper has gotten stiff and it is hard for it to change directions once it has been put into full defrost mode. For now I have disconnected the cable and manually put the flapper halfway between heat and defrost. I am planning to upgrade to A/C soon so I haven't been too worried about it. FordGuy69 solved the problem by trimming the rubber on the flapper: http://www.1969stang.com/mustang/forum/showthread.php?p=120987 Also this person: http://forums.vintage-mustang.com/vintage-mustang-forum/628950-1970-sticky-heater-heat-defrost-cable-alignment.html That may work for you too.

  9. OK, thanks! Just curious, was the black painted before, or after the color? I ask, because I noticed on a 1971 Boss 351, the black was painted first. Thx, Bo
  10. A couple more pics... Something almost as interesting is what I found in the trunk...a brand new FoMoCo hood molding, in the wrapper. Bo
  11. Here are the pics. If this was painted after the factory, they removed a lot of stuff to do it...and it looks like they put it back exactly the same as the factory would have...Not impossible, but this wasn't a quick job like a dealer would have probably done. - Trunk lock - Gas filler tube - 1/4 extensions - Rear bumper - Taillights Thx, Bo
  12. That is interesting. Could you tell if the paint on the scoop or taillight panel was original? What was the production date? Thx, Bo
  13. Thanks for the feedback! It was definitely a black hood from the factory, based on the 5 in the color code on the dataplate: "W5". I have a Marti Report on order to confirm. Here is the other data plate info: 9T01L216xxx Body: 65A Color: W5 Trim: 2A Date: 17G DSO: 21 Axle: 3 Trans: W http://www.mustangdecoder.com/cgi-bin/decoder.pl?vin=9T01L216XXX&body=65A&trim=2A&color=W5&date=17G&dso=21&axle=3&trans=W The DSO: "21" is Atlanta, it is currently in the Atlanta area, so its not too far from the original owner. My son is sending me the pics now...I will post them shortly. Bo
  14. I saw a 1969 Mustang Coupe today, Meadowlark Yellow with Flat Black hood option (color code W5). It also had the Sports Appearance Package option and was very late production (date 17G). It needs a complete restoration, but it is very original...original paint, even the original stripes are there. What I found interesting was it had a blacked out taillight panel. It looks original. Could this be original? I've never heard of it. And if so, would it have been part of the Blackout Hood option or the Sports Appearance Package option...or something else? As soon as my son gives me the pics off his iPhone, I will post them up. Thanks, Bo
