65 GT350 Registrar
« on: April 20, 2019, 07:22:28 PM »
Has there been any discussion of creating a searchable reference document that contains data for each year that includes data points such as ride height front and rear, spring suppliers, front and rear, spark plugs, etc.? Might consider links to pictures of original parts and their Ford part numbers.
Thanks for considering

Continuous caretaker of 5S228 since May 1967

Been discussed in some circles many a time but its a big project and most have their hands full of other projects and efforts.

At least one of the clubs has started to lay the groundwork but it's been ten years or about that so far and they have included only maybe 5% of some of the details, no numbers (except for a hand full) and no pictures. Prior efforts either had allot of details or very few, non-searchable and lacked other details some would like. Some owners have done shorter lists just for their car since changing assembly plant, year and even month can change the details.

Have a copy of one man's efforts and it only covered 66 Mustang engine compartment (without engine) and it was 3 inches thick and took over 5 years. It went pretty deep but that was his choice and his project. Never made it to distribution. So you can see gauge what an effort might be like.

But it all starts somewhere so would invite you, if so have the time (years) and drive to start something. Might want to h Hopefully you are retired, have no cars that need attention and have a very understanding wife.

Just my observations and experiences.

:)

The subject came up a couple of times at least before the site crash.  Would have posted a link to that thread if one of them still was available.  Comments like What would someone charge for producing such an effort/product? And an EASY button reference was part of the last thread.

Of course I'm not speaking for the 65 or any of the Registrar so maybe there are plans for such an effort.
