Nice! Congrats on your score! That round spring-clip fastener thing is used in the trunk to hold the taillight harness in place ~ holds the plastic harness clip to the taillight posts. I believe AMK or NPD carries them if you need more. Info on cleaning your build sheets to remove the tar / oil / bl...

Can you see the apron VIN without removing the fender? Any good websites with pics and guides for VIN stamp location and variability between production plants?

I'm sure that it was the only Boss Eliminator that this dealership sold since, like many L-M dealers back then, they were ...

Re: How do you know your Classic Cougar is the Real Deal?

A thorough visual inspection along with a decent knowledge of these cars and how they were put together and what is "correct". If you don't know, then bring along someone who does. Then of course a Marti Report is a must as far as I'm concerned. - Phillip I think it is unlikely that anyone would fi...

Re: '69 Rear Spoiler-original (xr7 or eliminator)

Black (duh) Eliminator rear spoilers weren't black from the factory like the Mustang spoilers. They were painted body color.

So the only known automatic with A/C 1969 428CJ build sheet from San Jose shows a 421S.
