Outside of the pump and mounts, the rest of the power steering is the same as other 70 Cougars and Mustangs. Good luck with the search.

Rare and expensive parts on your list >.<

Be sure to sign up on the 428cobrajet.org forum. Parts come up for sale there, and you should also post a "wanted" list as well.

You'll find there is a '70 CJ / 4-speed distributor currently on eBay. I recommend staying away from seller: MySunshine302. He has a long history of making forgeries of rare parts and passing them off as legitimate.

I got a phone call from a guy within 20 minutes of posting my "wanted" ad yesterday claiming that he had a stash of parts left by his deceased father. Long story, detailed saga of how he and his wife were finally getting the house sold and he still had junk to take to the dump. He has a load of NOS 428 CJ parts, enough to fill two Bekins boxes that are about 3 feet tall each, and will ship them to me if I can send $300 cash to him. Mentioned having two new Holley 4513 carbs in original boxes, etc...

Anybody else have this kind of strange "amazingly good" luck?

Sounds like a scam.. but you never know. I would tread lightly ask for pictures and details what you are getting for $300. If he knows what NOS 428CJ part are. He knows what they are worth, and would be ask a lot more money for them.

My thoughts too. But he told a good story. After about 2 1/2 hours of phone time with 15-20 calls, he never said anything that contradicted anything said before. Sounds good. So I sent the money and I'll see what happens. Just like putting a lot of dough in a slot machine and pulling the handle. I understand completely what I'm doing but still hoping for BAR-BAR-BAR!

I think a lot of us will be interested on how all this turns out for you.
It seems like a scam,but you know every once in a while a guy gets lucky. Some people just aren't real car nuts and inherit a stash of parts and just want to get rid of it.
If you strike gold here don't get lulled into thinking you'll hit the jackpot every time.
I hope it works out for you. It'll be nice to see someone have good fortune come their way.

Was it "TJ" from a Nevada area code? He called me back in September after I posted in the parts wanted forum. I posted about it here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9837&p=98307#p98307. At least one other forum member had been contacted by him with the same scam in the past. He seems to troll the parts wanted section.

I would have told him I can be over in a few days with cash and pick up the parts so no need to ship, his response most likely would have told me if this was real of fake. I hope it is a good deal though. One never knows for sure.
