  1. early F100 forums?

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    What are the best early F100 forums out there (48-56 mostly)? Looking for something as good as VMF is for F100s.
  2. VIN stamps on early F100s

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    They are dead sexy
  3. Facebook.....*sigh*

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    FB, where everyone's an expert whether they are or not.
  4. VIN stamps on early F100s

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    I am quite familiar with VIN legal theory on Mustangs as I have been 99.9% Mustang centric most of my life, but I've bought my first F100, a 56. I was able to locate and verify the ONLY stamped VIN on the vehicle. It is on the top of the frame just in front of the firewall and before the...
  5. Is my Mustang front wheel drive?

    General Discussion (Non-Vintage Mustang)
    He's the guy at the gas station that had one just like yours, except it was yellow, with 4 doors, and a Buick.
  6. how much does non-original engine hurt value?

    Concours Forum
    He offered it to me for 28K I turned him down. I think with as many things he's told me about that contradict his ad (which originally said "matching numbers and no rust", now its not matching and "some" rust), make me think he either doesn't know anything about the car because he inherited it...
  7. how much does non-original engine hurt value?

    Concours Forum
    Here's what I'm thinking on the offer. I'll describe the car first. Minimal rust in the floor only, no rust-through (figure repair and paint, no major panel replacement needed). Needs body work (guessing 100 hours). Needs paint of course. Plan to replace carpet, headliner, dash-pad...
  8. how much does non-original engine hurt value?

    Concours Forum
    Thanks everyone. I'm looking everywhere I can and it appears that it would cost as much as 30 - 35% of value. It looks like with asking price and a ballpark +10% estimates I'd be in it for less than what it should be worth so I'm now going to ask for a lot more details (the car is 200 miles...
  9. how much does non-original engine hurt value?

    Concours Forum
    I have my eyes on a 69 Boss 302, it is unrestored and missing its original block, but the seller has a boss block that goes with it and supposedly the original heads (they are date code matching). I've never been a concours guy because I've never restored a car that I thought worthy of bringing...
  10. Any ideas on value?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    that's a nicely optioned car. I'm upping my guestimate to around $14 - $15K. Which I believe is really top dollar for a 69 coupe that isn't perfectly restored but in good shape, 69 coupes seem to be running about 30% under what 65 - 68 coupes are running (not that I understand why, its just...
  11. Missing, shaking

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    look at it running at night with no lights and make sure you don't see any spark arcing across from a plug wire. I had one running rough once on a brand new build and found it that way, nice blue spark in the dark told me what was wrong. :)
  12. 69 mustang won't cool down

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    set your timing up to 16 initial, I did on my original 351w and it runs a lot cooler now (also a lot better response, and no pinging, there's a lot of info out there how modern gasoline really requires these older engines to be advanced a lot more than stock). Royal Purple also has a nice...
  13. opinion on a tapping sound

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    Thanks everyone. It turned out to be an exhaust leak as suspected. I ended up going with a Mr. Gasket copper gasket I picked up at Summit. (I tried going bare metal to metal as suggested but my surfaces must not be true and I couldn't get the collector bolts to budge to get the manifold off...
  14. Any ideas on value?

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    where is the "surface rust"? If it is indeed just surface rust, and confined to a couple areas under the car that can be easily dealt with, you should deal with them before you sell it, post some more pics of that, the interior, the engine bay. Is it an M code or H code 351? (4v or 2v)? Is...
  15. opinion on a tapping sound

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    auto - noticeable from inside the car or do I need a helper? Thanks!
  16. opinion on a tapping sound

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I'm only pulling the plug wire, the plug is still in the hole. (sorry I was unclear)
  17. opinion on a tapping sound

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I have a 69 with its original 351W, I drive it a few miles a week, just had it pulled and re-sealed about 6 months back, on inspection the engine looked good so we decided to not rebuild it. Its been running great, but a few days ago I heard a tapping around 2000 rpm while driving. I thought...
  18. I'm on a mission for a mustang.

    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I can tell you that if I were your dad, my fear would be that you would get bored with it and sell it. Maybe he knows this --- I think if you were my son, you'd have to convince me that you wouldn't just get rid of it when you realized it will cost more to restore than it will be worth when...
  19. today went to Tampa for 2 -68 shelby for sale

    Vintage Mustang Forum
