Re: Bad ignition switch?

It's possible. I had a 66 Mustang that would stall and backfire when going more than 65 mph for any extended period of time. Eventually, the stall and backfiring got more and more frequent to where it was undrivable. Turns out, it was a bad ignition switch that was heating up and shorting out. Sound...

Re: 68 XR7 WITH A COYOTE

Very cool. What's under that riveted section of the hood in front of the scoop?

Re: "The Parts Car"

Saw a guy in Victoria on Facebook has a fiberglass hood. He didn't put a price.

Re: Renting your classic

I rented my 66 Mustang to the crew when they were filming Paradise, Texas (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0443604/) here in Houston. They used it about an hour to film the actor who played a young Timothy Bottoms in a flashback driving it away from home. Got paid $125 for the use of the car, and they ...

Re: Renting your classic

Once my 67 is presentable, I was going to investigate Turo. I'll only have about $12k into the car, and if it can help fund a fancier build, why not?

Re: How do 67-68 vent window handles attach?

Is there any way to tell from the etching if it's tinted glass or not? There's a guy on the other side of town with a used driver vent window, but it has dark aftermarket tint film stuck on it, so I'm not sure how to tell if it is factory tint or clear.

Re: How do 67-68 vent window handles attach?

Is the vertical rubber window track really hard to replace? Mine's not in great shape, and the window vibrates while driving. The vibration of the window combined with the whistling of the quarter window that can't be tightly shut is driving me crazy.

Re: How do 67-68 vent window handles attach?

Here's my situation. VentWindow.jpg There's no way to just put a post back in the hole? If I have to remove the entire vent window frame from the door to replace the vent glass frame, am I better off replacing the entire thing with a repro that has good rubber in the window track? If I'm looking for...

Re: How do 67-68 vent window handles attach?

Question, can I get just the post or am I going to have to replace the entire vent frame?
