Re: In front of shock towe measurement?

Brian, I looked at the 1969 shop manual, and it has a diagram of some of the underbody dimensions. From that, I took some of the measurements and made a best guess estimate that the dimension between the center lines of the shock towers, should be 33.40 to 33.50" Keep in mind the monte carlo bar mou...

Re: C-pillar lights on 69

Hi, For 1969, the courtesy light group included the rear roof pillar lights, the map light and the trunk & engine compartment lights. I don't believe build location had anything to do with it. FWIW, my car, a 69 convertible has the plug for the drivers side light. I've attached a picture of the pass...

Re: Is there a missing bracket

Hi Mike,
That is where the front bumper guard would mount if equipped.
There would be an additional hole on the valance panel to secure

Trim Screws

Hello All, Anyone know for sure what the correct hardware is that was used for mounting the rear trim panels on a '69 XR7 convertible? I'm talking about the 2 screws and cup washers that were used on the forward flat surfaces of those panels. See the attached picture. This has been driving me nuts f...

Re: 1970 dash screws and clips wanted

Me too! I consider my memory to be pretty good, but after having the dash out of my '69 for a long time, I can't recall exactly the proper hardware as well. The MPC does not show the hardware used for the dash trim pieces. So, if anyone has good pictures or knows for sure what goes where, it would c...
