The fastback is now mounted on the Autorobot & measured. LH rear rail short (8mm) & down (10mm). Rest of the car is square & level .......







Something from the dark side slipped in while I was not looking ...... Embarrassed

No wonder that rail is out, the car went a bit flaccid when that yellow thing showed up.

Kerry, If you corrected those discrepancies, would it be "too straight" compared to when it rolled off the assembly line?
would that cause more problems trying to line up the doors and guards, compared to close enough is good enough?


The word "swims" upside-down is still "swims".
- If you rip a hole in a net, there are actually fewer holes in it than there were before

Reality is that getting that rail in the "right spot" will take the deformations out of it. Easy when the trunk floors are being replaced ........ Like

Thanks, Kerry,
Im sure i read somewhere that there was a large variation on actual measurements as these went down the assembly line and a proper concourse restoration would never have perfect gaps.

Most cars are over restored for sure.

I would want my car straight though. Might as well since your piling the cash into her to do it right.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

This will give you an idea of amount of cars going down the line. Keep in mind that by the mid to late 60's some plants were producing up to 700 cars a day ........

Hi All

The rail is bent post production line due to some sort of bingle. Then some bright spark decided to put on a new rear quarter without pulling it straight resulting in a distorted and bulging quarter. Ozbilt is about to wave his magic wand.....

OK Oz... with reference to the holes (approx 1/4" OD) that appear in the rocker panel on the first coupe in view. Would they only appear if a rocker panel molding were to be installed (if it was) as a factory option? Or were they on all mustangs as part of the manufacturing process and filled before primer and paint?

That car had the option. Note the "buck #" on the A pillar.

BTW, there is no "coupe" in the picture as Ford never made a Mustang coupe until 1974. It is a hardtop ....... 😄
