Re: The Mustangs Unlimited GTE is back for Sale

When one really digs into it you will usually find date codes are different, maybe the car was originally manual drum and not factory punched for a booster or the car was made at San Jose vs. Dearborn and details will differ. A rebody is a memory of a car not THEE car. I get that, Don, and I agree ...

Re: The Mustangs Unlimited GTE is back for Sale

Just out of curiosity, if I took a body shell from a GT-E and placed it next to the body shell from a GT of the same trim level (XR-7 or base) and covered the VIN numbers wherever they appear, could anyone here tell one from the other? Would not the GT-E have holes drilled for the body side molding...

Re: Body Shops that you have had a GOOD EXPERIENCE with

D.C.'s Auto Restoration in Uxbridge, MA did the restoration of BBCat, B3Cat, and Cheshire Cat in addition to my '69 Q-code Mach 1, my '76 MGB, our '65 Mustang convertible, and my '69 Mustang convertible. All were trophy winners and all were done at reasonable cost. Everyone I've referred has been ha...

Oh No - not the Round Table Ni, ni, ni, ni, ni, ni ... What next - another shrubbery Off to find some moistened bint lieing in the pond distributing pesos so I can afford to finish my 428 and sell it to Scott Taylor It's official. Once Monty Python makes an appearance, the thread is fully baked.

Re: This is a Barn Find to beat all Barn Finds!

I'm one of the commoners, I guess, so here's my opinion. This thread is an example of why I'm in the process of withdrawing from car club activities. There isn't a single person on this forum or in the larger Cougar community that would pay $1 more than necessary to buy a Cougar they want. If they g...

Re: 68 Vinyl Roof Question

I believe that Oxford was the vinyl material and Levant was the grain pattern. The window sticker would have carried the marketing name for the vinyl roof option while the Marti Report might be a more generic descriptor. I think both are referring to the same thing. If the roof had been painted, it ...

Re: John's or Distinctive Industries?

I agree with John's but he's not infallible. Make sure you check them carefully as soon as they arrive. I ended up with a set of parchment upholstery that wasn't up to the standard I wanted but I didn't check them for almost a year after I ordered them. I didn't think it would be fair to ask John to...

Re: can someone direct me?

I used Pioneer 5 ¼” speakers. The Model was TS-G1344R. They appear to have been superseded by this model:

They fit perfectly in the kick panel pods.

Re: 67 Mercury Cougar Marauder 390 GT V8 4B

SO...I think mine is a Marauder GT 390 VS...but it's base is an XR-7...with the option of the Maurauder GT 390 engine added.(?) I have ordered the Marti Report. I'm not sure how long it takes to receive it. The 390-4v engine was marketed as the Marauder GT 390, but that is different from the GT Equ...
