1969 - 1970 / Re: Teak Wood Interior Change Over Period
« Last post by J_Speegle on February 19, 2018, 03:04:00 PM »
The change was indicated by a change in the interior coding. Been a while since I did a survey and think I would want to double check the dates were had established against all the new data to see if anything could be gained

MPC places the change over as the first of Feb 69. Not sure if that is a hard (real cut off date) as this was not something that was related to safety or an issue that needed correcting. Also if that were a hard date the date would likely correspond to when the engine was built not the car

IMHO use it as a range since there is no telling if a car coming down the line would have received an engine with the chrome or aluminum valve covers if at that exact moment were both sitting there waiting for cars.  The overlap would not have been great but it does mean that for a period there was an overlap

Not Mustangs.  Have heard some of the 'higher' end cars went through that type of process, like T-birds.

+1   Mustangs were treated much like Falcons that they were based on (unibody design)

Sorry, I should have said blue dots on motor mounts "must have been documented" if they made it into Tony Gregory's HiPo 289 book.    Where is this Tony Gregory anyway?  Let's ask him! ;)

Understand now.  Would not apply them or repeat that mark without more documentation. Stuff I offer here has at least three examples from the same time period or the exceptions/warning/comment is included in the posting.  Just the basic standard we set up as a baseline so that we do not offer what might be an unusual or out of the norm marking for others to apply.
1969 - 1970 / Drip rail moldings for 1969 vinyl top Grande model.

Hello, Newbie Here.

Trying to secure a set of stainless drip rail moldings, one of which is missing from my 1969 Grande Coupe and I know that FORD had different part #'s for non vinyl mustang drip rails vs vinyl top drip rails.  My issue is that due to the part, the part number is not stamped on them.  I've had several suppliers try to sell me the reproduction drip rails and short of me actually being able to remove originals from a donor Grande model, is there anyway of telling if I'm getting the right ones from the person selling them as these are not currently reproduced and my wife wants to keep the vinyl top.  This sight has been a wealth of information and look forward to your input and suggestions as I move forward in my restoration. Mr. Speegle I hope I posted this in the right category. 

Thank You.  Tony  :)

Thanks Jim. I was actually worried about a “too short” cable.

Those were used on dearborn cars for sure and they are on my 69 fairlane convert, kansas built.  The bolt Big S Jeff shows are on my old SCJ drag car, san jose early Jan 69 built.
