This web site is devoted to the Mustang, Shelby, and Ford Cobra enthusiasts. About 40+ years ago, I bought my first Mustang. It was a 3 speed 289 2bbl, plain Jane car equipped with a radio and heater. Oh yes, it also had a steering wheel. As so many young people do, I set about saving money to add options. Added a Shelby intake manifold, 4bbl Holley carburetor and new wheels and tires. The latter being necessary because someone stole my originals. At any rate, 40 + years and about 50-60 Mustangs later, I am still working on Mustangs. I decided to start this web site and publish my notes in hopes that others can benefit from the knowledge.
All information posted to this web site is researched prior to being posted and to the best of my knowledge is accurate. Most all of the initial pictures are taken of my cars, at dealers, friends, or classic car lots. Some are of friends cars, a few are submitted.
The first two "YEAR" drop down menus are there to select the year vehicle you want to look for. Once in the year, on the upper passenger side of the page is a drop down menu to take you to other listings for that year mustang, such as Maintenance schedules, Tune-up information, Transmission information, Pictures, Axle codes, brake and exhaust information and more.
Because of the tremendous amount of data required to support this undertaking, not all years, body styles and other data will be available from the initial upload. The web site now consists of most years basic information from 1965 - 2015 and has considerable data. There is a section on my current restorations that has many, but not enough pictures. It seems like I forget to take pictures all day long and just get them at the end.
The drop down mechanical tab contains considerable information about the car parts. I buy and sell cars and parts, so a lot of information comes from these dealings. As a matter of fact, as I research parts to buy or sell, I needed a way to consolidate them and decided to do it here and share the info as well as make it easy to find again.
The TIPS drop down menu will contain schematics, drawings, helpful hints on how to do some things that I found difficult (or an easier way than documented). Templates to lower front ends, interoperability issues an most importantly, things NOT to do. In other words, some things I did and then said "Oh $#!%". If you download a template, measure the point to point markers. If you print a smaller or larger copy than I uploaded, your measurements may be off. I will have a scale on each page to allow you to check measurements.
Any information you want to provide or discuss can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a couple of pictures of your car and want them posted, send them as well. Please attach a brief note in your email providing the information you want printed on the Internet.
By the way, I am NOT a programmer, what I have learned is on my own. So some things are done in a convoluted way, or may not be done the best way possible. If you have constructive ideas on what can be done better, let me know. But also at least give me a hint on how to do it so I can research it and see if I can figure it out. I am in my mid 60's so type slow so I can understand you.
Mustang and Cobra are registered names by Ford Motor Company.
