69 New Jersey Mach I - Unrestored Picture Thread
« on: June 21, 2017, 03:39:23 PM »
Disclaimer: :) As always we need to warn that unrestored does not always mean unaltered by previous owners. Just because this car has/had a specific detail does not mean your car was built just the same. Always do your research, document your findings and make the best choice for you and your expectations.

Cars' VIN is - 9T02M1520xx Believe I grabbed these pictures from a publically posted for sale/auction ad a number of years ago. We have no real build date information on the car but the projected build date from the door tag is Dec 19, 1968

Not allot of pictures but lucky for us. The seller spent some time under the car rather than taking all the pretty exterior and interior pictures that we so often see. Did take some pictures from unusual angles under the dash. Too bad they didn't take some of the trunk :(  But at least we have these to share and help others
 
Enjoy

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

EXTERIOR

EX1 Hood edge paint detail as well as the blacked out cowl. Interesting that we see this on a December built NJ car when we compare the same detail at other plants





EX2 Center of cowl cover and firewall to cowl pinch weld from above





EX3 Drivers side drip rail





EX4 Pinch weld black out detail





EX5 Hood black out edge and pinstripe






EX6 Close up of pinstripe end at hood opening

UNDERCARRIAGE

U 1 Passenger side wheel well forward





U 2 Rear floor color





U 3 Pinch weld black out overspray. Angle was more upward in this application since we don't see much/any black on the frame rail





U 4 Main floor. Interesting that this car is missing the expected extra sound deadener that was part of the Mach I package

Yes interesting little look around.  Picture EX2 even then the ' yellow ' wire in the harness looked white.  The fuel line in picture U4 is not bent a little differently than mine.  The ' J ' hook in ENG 6 is holding two lines.  What are they ?  Looks like a Midland booster in EX2 ? I thought by Dec. 68 they were Bendix ?  Thanks Jeff.  Brian

Having seen 300+ examples of this wire, it truly is white, occasionally cream colored but certainly not yellow.  It is part of the wiper harness.

A/C vacuum hoses from reservoir can.

ENG 7  Center of cowl. The nylon tie is interesting in that location.
Especially since the little white clip is there. all it needed was a little friction tape.

That is a Bendix booster & the Panduit strap by wiper motor wire holds up the wire extension (about 6''long) between firewall plug & plug for gauge feed wire on 69 351w & there is a c9zf fomoco wire tag (off which I had made) wrapped around that shortwire extension & I only seen t his 0n 69- 351w engines.  This car must have been stored very well as that under dash insulation glued to bottom cowl (in3 & 4) is usually falling apart. That needs to be made or sourced out as most cars that pad is long gone. Anybody got a good piece to make a pattern from or a god example?

As we know lighting and digital cameras (along with your different monitoring settings) play a big part in displaying colors. A little age and those considerations and we get what we see.

Sure glad I started including picture labels when I post these threads. Sure makes discussing the finer points easier
