« on: May 21, 2008, 07:43:22 PM »
I am sure this topic will be short lived, but hoping to spark some ideas out there. I have been searching for all the options that could have come out on my 1973 or any car for the matter.

 I would also like to see if anyone can explain to me why some mach ones are coming with standard doors or interior or if someone is just going the cheaper route rather than pay that extra money for for the deluxe.

  Where have all the good part site gone? I have found ten site with a vast difference in spoiler prices and cannot seem to quantify one over the other except price.

Lets gets some voice going on this.

If you have time to read this and understand my method or lack there of then reply, come on this is how we help others.

First of all Russ, what exactly is the difference between a '68 Mach1 door and a regular coupe door.  Is it the glass, the tint, the metal, the rubber, or what?

Well I know the panels themselfs are different. I have also seen the radio console have a different look to it. I have seen where that little map light would be just have a mustang emblem, and I have seen of course different seats. I have found a little info on this since the post, but not sure I have really found enough to spit any knowledge just yet. Stand by to Stand by. More to follow

 Are you talking about the interior door panels? I don't think a Mach1 door by itself is different compared to a basic Mustang of the same year.
 I have found Deluxe panels on Ebay and Sacramento Mustang Parts for almost the same price. They are probably available in other stores. Now if a Mach1 has a standard interior is either a basic sportroof or it has been restored with cheaper parts.

Yeah I have seen many people try to say the doors they have are the mach one doors when in fact they are the standard doors, why I don't know. Call me a weirdo but I like to get on ebay and look at car just to point out that untruth about the car. I have even went as far as email some of the sellers and let them know that there info might want to be looked up again before they put it on ebay, and I have got some to tell me to get bent and even a few that said thanks.

 I am really trying to find out if change my rims to the 500 would anyone know, and what all options could have come with that car. I have to get one arm rest for the driver door because of a small cut and found out real quick that you have to get the whole door, and that got me quick lol.

It's probably a standard door with the delux panels and handles that someone added. That fits into the typical mistake of calling every 1969 thru 1973 Fastback body style a Mach I, or every 1964 thru 1966 V-8 equipped Mustang a GT. Maybe ignorance is contagious.

YEah I think alot of people get into a car and then see how much it is going to cost fo rhte small things and then take a left turn to cheap road. I cannot blame anyone for that, but I think it would be worth that much more if you stick with it and do it right. Soaring you are the man if I can keep you from crushing me everytime you get on,lol.

Well that is good to hear, so there is a chance that those are the true doors I see on other Mach ones, I am just trying to figure up the firing order on the options. You know like every 10th one had power windows or tint, or whatever. Most of the options for that year where pretty average. As some of you know I had the Vinyl top but that is one I can live without. I hope you would have a link or so that I could travel to and see this, I like to print this stuff out and trying to do what soaring did but on a very small scale. thanks.

What's this about you being a tough Army guy with thick skin, Russ?  :)  My humor is sometimes taken for seriousness, but I did add a smiley didn't I?

Actually, I was an E-5 back when I served Uncle, but I was a Specialist E-5 and not a buck sergeant with hard stripes.  They saved those for combat infantry Sgts.   The spec 5 patch was an E-4 spec patch with one rocker on the top.  They are not around anymore, but back in the Nam war we were plenty.  My dad was a Tech-Sergeant in WWII.  None of those anymore either.

So you really cannot tell what options you could really have by your vin, but could one of those Marti report pull it up? I also was reading that 1973 they didn't use the 500 MAGs they use a alum. wheel in replace of 500 and since I wasn't around back then, wink wink, I will need help to see if anyone remembers or can tell me that that is correct. Thanks

A Marti report will tell you how the car came off the assembly line, e.g. all options, and which dealership it was delivered. As to what options were available, California Mustang published a 'Mustang Illustrated Facts Book' that listed 'most' of the options and prices for each year. I don't know if it's still available, so search the net.
