70 Dearborn Shock tower/Spring Cover Bolts
« on: January 06, 2018, 10:32:20 AM »
If I may add, my car is a 1970 Mach 1, Dearborn built Sept 4, 1969 and original shock tower bolts do not match any of the bolt head types shown, see pic


Mod Note:  Post split from a fender bolt discussion to make it easier to find in the future

Those are typical of what I have seen on 70 dearborn cars.

Looking through my collection I found examples of early 70 Deaborn build Mustangs with the same pattern (single dot or dimple) only during that period. Not saying that they were not used later - just can't find any examples in my collection. Some of the following examples are from cars that are in their own unrestored picture threads here on the site while a couple are from members cars.

0F01F1086xx - Single dot or dimple




Looking through what I have I found allot of circle with spoke style and some small flags being used through the year 

0F1230xx - Circle with spokes




0F1427xx - Circle with spokes




0F1427xx - Circle with spokes




0F1516xx - Circle with spokes




0F1631xx - Small flag




0F1907xx - Circle with spokes




0F1920xx - Small Flag

Thanks Jeff, good to know regarding the somewhat uniqueness of the single dimple bolts used on the early Dearborn built cars.
I was going to use AMK's bolts and nuts but will get mine re-plated and install them as they are in good shape.
