Concours Talk / Re: parts markings

Pete, I agree with you and Charles. Where do you draw the line though? Should cars with no orange peel in the paint have Paint OK inspection stamps or stickers? Should obvious reproduction parts even have replicated engineering numbers such as belts, hoses, cables or color color codes applied to reproduction parts. Can of worms for 95% of all restorations.

292-V8  Number 4 wire is too short for even a 289. They make good coil wires if they have good date codes.

Richie, I believe in 1968-69 in North Carolina if you bought a new car and traded in a used car the plates transferred to the new car. In Georgia it was just the opposite the plates stayed with the old  car. The registration changed but not the plates. It appears in some states the new vehicle did have plates when it left the dealership.

John, typically the front coil springs were painted black on Dearborn 69 Mustangs. Verify your original finish before you restore. A good place to start is under the spring rubber. Black paint is concours correct per MCA & SAAC judging.

MCA judges the Thoroughbred class on a four post lift at Grand National, MCACN judges the Pinnacle(THB) cars on 4 post lift and Mid America judges the Concours cars on a four post lift. Nothing new in top concours classes. MCA and MCACN are judged at show site during show for all to observe. Nothing new really?

Mike and Joe, I would start by getting advice from Jeff at Tri City, as they are one of top restoration shops in country as I'm sure you already know. Jeff is a great resource you can trust.

Concours Talk / Re: What is the application for these plug wires
« on: July 05, 2019, 12:52:39 PM »
By the plug boots and date codes possibly 351 Windsor. Boss 302 & Cleveland heads heads did not use angled boots. Hard to tell by your photos.

 Bill, reproduction parts are typically no deduction in SAAC  concours Div.II or MCA trailered concours. Definitely a deduction in SAAC premiere (DIV. I) or MCA Thoroughbred.

Bill, It's recommended to document original markings & colors on your car especially if they are not "typical". If judges question originality you have pictures. During judges introduction to car owner the lead judge will ask the owner if there is anything not typical about the car that should be discussed before judging begins. Undercarriage primer color is a good example.
 If a judge cannot see something (lack of Lubriplate on original FoMoCo brake shoes ) the owner is not required to have pictures of the parts not visible during judging. Many owners/restorers do take pictures of everything, however not required in SAAC or MCA judging for parts not visible during judging.

It should be noted the 1968 wires were installed differently...different plant and year

Different calipers and caliper brackets also on 69-70.

Technically The S8MS-1132-A are wheel covers rather than hubcaps. ;)
