I told you it was silly. And, of course, no two will be the same. But APPROXIMATELY.... how many individual parts do you think/guess come together to make a running '67 Vert (or any other Mustang for that matter)?

The way Ford did it, or the way I always end up with extra nuts and bolts around when I finish a part?

Let's see -- do you count the carb as one unit? Or as a lot of little carby parts? How about the tranny, engine, ...? Lots of little bitsys in each of those.
Aw, just let's just get a NPD catalog for starters and start counting... lol

Oh, does that include all the cr*ppy repro's which were labelled "67 Mustang" that I bought but had to junk because they didn't fit?

How many parts = a gallon of gas... If the tires/wheels have balance weights is each weight 1 piece or 2 (steel plus lead). I think we need a manual/guide like the MCA
judging guide so we have rules for how to count the parts!

How do with count the sheet metal? Do patches count extra?? If so my '67 convertible probably will have more than yours :)

My guess 4852 !

My guess is somewhere over 9000 :p Otherwise known as entirely too much, but still less than modern cars somehow...

Follow up question: how many parts in a NEW Mustang are actually metal?

Six cylinder cars have 3/4" of the parts of V8 cars. That makes them lighter, faster, and more WINNER, kinda like tiger blood and adonis DNA does people.
