Re: Driver side mirror repair

Have you tried pulling on the mirror housing to put some pressure on the screw to see if that helps? If that does not get it apart then you could take the mirror completely off the door. Yes that will mean removing the door panel to get the remote cable out with the mirror. With the mirror on a work...

Re: YouTube

"It's basically a mustang, so you can get parts for it no problem!" Y'know, I hear this all the time, and while it's not really the scope of this discussion, I have been meaning to post and ask the forum for input on a list of components that ARE actually compatible with a same-model-year Mustang. ...

Re: A newbie question on bringing back a 70 xr7

You are correct, it takes very little to go into a business here in PA and still be "legal" in the eyes of the state. And I could not agree with you more, the less government the better. But now back on topic. I am located near Hershey so we are not too far apart. Probably only a 2-3 hour drive woul...

Re: 427 v. 428

If I had been old enough in 1968 to order a new GTE I would option it with the XR-7 package and the 428 CJ. Why the 428? Because it was available with a 4 speed, and in 1968 a real muscle car had a manual transmission.

Re: 71 in Texas

For anyone interested in this car and looking to bring the price down a little here are a few items that you can mention that may help you do that. As mentioned above the center grille emblem is missing, those are hard to find and expensive. The grille looks to have a bent bar or two. The COUGAR XR7...

Re: Help! What is this plastic piece?

Neal is correct, it is a part of your instrument cluster. There will be one just like this around each of the 4 instrument pods. You should have 3 more of them.

Re: A newbie question on bringing back a 70 xr7

No licensing at all to become a tradesman in any field here in PA. That is not exactly correct. Anyone working in the home improvement/construction field must register with the state. Although in all fairness the only requirement to receive a registration number is the ability to prove you have a l...

Re: 68 XR7 interior refresh Part- One

I forgot to mention that there are a couple of window stops in there that will also need to be removed before the glass will come out the top. As I recall they bolt to the metal track piece, there may also be one bolted to the inner quarter sheetmetal. You can pretty much figure that any bolt you se...

Re: Eliminators on the Market (January 2019)

Here is another one that popped up, is this a 1969 factory color? https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/mercury/cougar/2217473.html It looks more like Grabber Blue to me. A closer look at this car would be in order. I see 70 side marker lights and it looks like 70 front seat belt retra...

Re: Throttle Linkage

67-8 small block linkage is totally different from a 69. Different parts, different look.
