Re: Trans and carb ID so I can represent right to sell

According to my carb ID book from Pony Carburetors a C5AF-F was from a 1965 full size Ford with a 352 4V and auto trans. If you are taking these numbers off the attached metal tag then the second line should be D 5FB with a space between the D and the 5. If that is correct then the D is for the desi...

Re: Carpet Restoration?

I have seen that snag many times over the years, although it was always on a parts car so I did not care about the carpet as it was heading to the trash. My thought on a repair would be to perhaps cut a few strands of thread form a hidden area such as under the rear seat to somehow glue back into th...

Re: Dash Panel Switches on a 1969 XR7 Convertible

were the dash switches options on standards in 69? I just have 4 blanks, convertible lever down lower. The switch panel as shown in the first two posts in this thread were only installed in an XR-7. All 1969-1970 standard Cougars received the warning light panel in this same location. The 1969-1970...

Re: Engine Bay Refresh question?

The original radiator cap would be marked AUTOLITE and would not have that flip up lever on it.

Re: Dash Panel Switches on a 1969 XR7 Convertible

Unless you want to cut a big hole in the top of the dash pad you will not get the switch panel to separate from the pad without removing the complete pad. The switch panel has two studs on the back of it that are then bolted to the pad. So, yes, it attaches from the backside.

Re: Flip already or scam? 1968 390

When you click on the provided ebay link it says that the page cannot be found, so it looks like the listing has already been pulled. For future reference when you come across a suspect listing you can send a message to ebay to report it. There is a link to do this on every listing. Randy Goodling C...

Re: 1971 Mercury Cougar 2dr Coupe for Sale in Van Nuys, California!

I would first suggest that you post the VIN and the information on the door data plate here. In case you do not know what the data plate is just open the drivers door and you should see a sticker in the door jamb, that is the data plate. It will have the VIN and other codes on it. That will tell us ...

Re: looking for drivers side map toggle switch

Bill,
I knew that the 67 and 68 switches are different but I have not heard of the transition version. Would you please explain how that one is different from the other two? Thank you.
