I thought of that and did and his answer was the same as yours.  I just thought I would post the question and see what the pros/cons of doing this either way might be.  Thanks for putting in your $0.02 worth.

Have you asked the shop you plan to use?  Their input is important to you.  If I were the body shop owner I would want it on wheels with suspension so I could move it around the shop easily.

I have a 65 coupe in storage, stripped down to bare metal, blasted and epoxy primered.  Time to start the rebuild.  I'm stuck on the decision to try to take it to a body shop w/o suspension and wheels (just bare frame on a car hauler) to start the body work and frame straightening OR to start by undercoating it, putting on suspension parts and wheels and then getting it to the body shop?  Pros / Cons of either way?
Thanks.

It's probably not possible to find out an exact production date because all the records were destroyed for production before 1967.  But there's a database (http://www.isomustangs.org/Registry/Data.aspx) that you can use to find an approximate date if you have the VIN.  You'll have to register to access it but they don't require any personal information.

What you do is look under the particular model year that you are interested in (1965) then start looking for VINs close to yours from the plant that made yours.  You should be able to pin it down to within a month if not a day or two.

Cheers!

Australia, New Zealand / 351w Parts?
« Last post by ghetto goblin on January 19, 2014, 02:53:32 AM »
Howdy,
I've recently started a project from the ground up, well from the engine bay out more like it. I've picked up a pretty clean looking 72 351w short block and being that this is my first smf build, can you fellows recommend good places to shop for aftermarket engine parts - Stock and/or upgrade.
I'd love to shop local (AUS or NZ) if poss, but sweet if its US.

BTW - The engine block number is D2AE-6015-BA12. I know that the D is 1970's and the 2 is 1972.. what are the rest?

Cheers
W.

Mustang Discussions / Re: what octane to use in 1973 351Q stock
« Last post by Topless_Horse on January 04, 2014, 08:52:18 AM »
Run the lowest octane your engine will tolerate without pinging.  Run a tank or two of 87 octane.  Does it ping under hard acceleration?  If no, continue running 87 octane.  If yes, go to the next higher octane.  Repeat until there is no pinging under hard acceleration.

You can retard the timing a bit to make the engine more tolerant of the lower octane too, at some small cost to performance.  But your wallet will be happy.

I run 89 octane unleaded in my '72 Q-code convertible with no problems.  I've replaced the C-6 with an AOD and have a 3.25:1 traction-loc (though I'd like to change to a lower gear eventually) as shown here.  My dad's '71 Boss 351 only runs well on premium (91 octane).


Me too, 89 is the best way to go on this.
