  1. You'd think for $115k it would have at least the one thing that makes it an R code, the shaker scoop. And those door trim panels ain't for a Mach 1.
  2. I know a couple of folks here have one and figured you'd have a reply by now. I've seen a couple installed and they were made by Undercover Innovations here in Bakersfield.
  3. Boy, I must have had a brain malfunction by not remembering to recommend Mike @latoracing. He puts out top shelf work, and he's a real good guy. I've even been to his shop. Sheesh.
  4. Yep, I agree with you that there's still some air in there. 1500 psi at the front is really good.
  5. Yep, crazy low. I had to eliminate the carb spacer, and lower the motor ~½" to fit the shaker.
  6. Yep, totally agree on WCCC. You won't get yard sale prices, but sometimes that doesn't matter.
  7. Just FYI, I've got a complete set of take off 69 disc spindles I'll make you a great deal on. Includes new rotors.
  8. Have you checked with West Coast Classic Cougar?
  9. I fought my power booster lack of power frustration until I removed the booster and bought a manual pedal. Been happy since.
  10. What? Since I've no idea on your ages, I left the topic open for y'all to confirm or deny being old. Think I'll go check your DOBs.
  11. Old? You're a year younger than me, you ain't old. Now the other two guys replying to this thread...
  12. Since you've got AC, there's not a lot of room between the steel dash pad reinforcement and the ducting housing. And it gets narrower the further out you go.
  13. Welcome to the friendliest forum Kaitlyn, and congratulations on buying the best looking car ever club. As you know, 69 sportsroofs are hard to get nowadays due to their recent popularity. Good advice from Midlife above. If you haven't already done so, many people get a Marti report https://www.martiauto.com/martireports.cfm to find out a bit of info on their Mustang. It includes build dates and what parts and options your particular car was built with. Here are a few Mustang businesses that most enthusiasts believe are the best in their field. http://midlifeharness.com/ for wiring restoration. Randy was the first to reply to your post, is a plethora of information, and a swell guy. http://www.chockostangclassicmustang.com/ for all things steering and brakes. I highly recommend you at some point send him your steering box for a rebuild. After 53 years it needs it. Dan and Carol are also great people to deal with. https://opentrackerracing.com/ for all things suspension. John is also a great guy. If you call these guys, you will be talking to the owner. Just tell them what you are planning, or ask for advice, and you will get good, solid information. https://www.npdlink.com/ National Parts Depot (NPD) for parts. There are several other good Mustang vendors which will be mentioned to you during your build. Pics. We love pics here. At least I do. Especially pics of your 69 as it currently sits. We also like to know what part of the country you're from. If you don't care to list the town, a geographical location helps. And again, welcome to the forum.
