New guy with ?
I just bought a '71 GT Torino, Grabber yellow, a/c, ps, disc brakes. 351C, auto, hideaway headlamps. Looks to be a decent car but has some rust I am not thrilled with but I bought it decent. While searching the internet I see there is not much reproduction parts for the 70,71's. Why not ? I figured stuff would be more readily available.
It looks like this is going to be a project compared to a Mustang.
I am sure I will have many ?'s along the way.
To start with I probably need a vaccum a/c-heat damper door control assembly. Up in the instrument panel. is this part shared with any other fords or torino only? Also any links to a parts brakdown for the car so I could find the Ford part #'s for stuff.
Any decent sheetmetal providers out there or is this going to be a find a parts car type of deal? deck lid, 1/4 panels and lower door skins, hood.
Any chance I could cut up a set of trunk corners from a mustang or something and make a patch panel for the Torino.
Hideaway headlamps work but will start to open slowly as soon as the engine is shutdown. Do I have a leak somewhere or is this normal.
I'll stop with that for now and thanks for any info.
