One of the things that I look for when I see a fox Mustang that's claimed to be "all stock" and/or "original" is the air silencer. It's just one of the many little OCD things that plague me. While you're still able to detect that it is missing, here's a nice little trick to disguise the most obvious sign that you have removed it - the hole that the removal leaves behind.
There is a new Facebook group dedicated to Feature Mustangs.
I think it compliments what we are doing here very nicely. It's a great place to share your cars, stories, upcoming shows and for sale findings. It took the initiative of Donny W. to get it going. I'm helping to administer it. It's a small but growing group.
Triple White Feature car located in Jupiter Florida. Car is all original with only 37,900 miles. Automatic with full documentation. Original paint, leather interior, and top. Comes with the original radio, floor mats, and convertible boot cover and storage bag. Paint is flawless. Runs perfect with no issues. Everything works as it should. Pictures upon request.
My winter project is centered around seats. I have a few minor issues to take care of. Right now the driver's seat is out of my car. I'm swapping out the power seat switch and possibly going to tackle debugging a slowly leaking lumbar support. I have a second seat that I am using for reference and parts. While having the two side-by-side on the bench I noticed something. There are numbers marked on the bottom. In the picture below, my seat is on the left and has "3 8". My spare has "4 16". With my car being built on 3/10/1993 I think that the "3 8" could be a date. This might be widely known but I didn't know I'd find this.
This is quite possibly the best deal on feature car parts right now. NOS Ford with Carlite glass for your bright white topped 1993 feature car. It's on ebay with a BIN of $189 plus $89 shipping.
One is listed but the description hints that there are more.
Over at the SSP forums, there is a thread on reproduction VIN labels created to gauge the market for such a thing. Ford licensed. About $100 for a set and available for order after the start of 2015. This seems like a good idea for those doing restorations and the like.
The ninth annual gathering of limited edition Mustang LX 5.0 Convertibles is being planned for the 2015 Carlisle All-Ford Nationals held from June 5-7, 2015 in Carlisle, PA. It's time to register!
I was recently pointed to an incredibly documented story of the restoration of a 1988 Mustang LX 5.0 Hatchback/t-top car. If you haven't already, you must read it.
Early Sunday afternoon my son was eager to hit the road after our three days in Carlisle, PA at the Ford Nationals. He was ready to go and a little mad at me that were were staying until mid-afternoon. Truthfully, I was ready to go, too. That was when my phone rang. It was my brother who had attended with us but had the sense to leave first thing on Sunday morning. He was home already. He asked if I had taken a look at the calendar that we all got in our goody bags. No, I hadn't. He said I should look at October 2015. He said that we were in there. Hmmm. So, I did. And, we were.
Thanks to 5pt0joe, I was able to get my hands on boxes to ship the Mustang 50 Year posters. (They are free from USPS...they have a 25" x 6" x 6" tube). As a result, I have added them to the list of 50th merchandise I am offering for great prices. I mostly want to cover what I spent to get them.
