I have actually tagged BaT on auctions  offering my services when I retire to write their descriptions for them as it appears those who they have hired do not know what they are doing.

Had to go through several iterations with them on the description of a car I sold on there recently.  It was an exercise in patience restraint for sure!  It seems there are so many writers and huge inconsistency from one to the other. 

Wanted to Buy / Re: 65/66 mustang passenger side interior light pad

I'm guessing the pad was made to prevent the light bracket collapsing when tightening.  It may also have inhibited a good ground, possibly something intended early in production and then foregone later.  We know there are details in the assembly manuals that are not correct or a transient detail that was an early or late type of thing.

In regards to the screws, I have seen many San Jose cars with a regular sheet metal 3/8" hex head holding the driver side bracket on and some with with that type of screw on both.  The predominant is the machine thread phillips panhead with captured tooth washer and the same style nut used on the tail light housing to body attachment.

One of those parts to best source an NOS piece.

I had a few K3 ones and they were identical to K2.  The K3 ones I had were late dated, like June/July of '68.

Charles, congratulations on a splendid auction!  Excellent pics, descriptions and attention to details. One of the very best I've seen on BAT.

Thanks, appreciate it!  Was my first time listing a car and didn't know what to expect, was pleasantly surprised with the commentary and how things went.

I really appreciate your attention to detail and your knowledge Charles. This is definitely one of the nicest Mustangs to go through BaT. Gary

Thanks Gary!

Auction ends tomorrow (Friday 4/14) at 2:20pm eastern time!

The mounts that bolt to the block?  There are decent repro available.  A lot of these ended up getting rusty/pitted.

Like many of us Ed is not one dimensional. We get pegged as the "Shelby" guys but in reality a lot of us grew up with and have a lot of knowledge about all cars available in the day. When Ed was bought it I was sharing about ways to tell it was a genuine sidepipe car.  In addition to mostly Fords I owned several Vettes, BB Mopars, Trans am etc.( I did draw the line at AMC though  ;D) Its always fun when you are hanging around the GM crowd and start pointing out details they don't even know lol

Yep!  I have 4 MGB's currently, 2 '79's and 2 '67's.  I'm also into BMW M cars.  :-)

Is this the one that was at the 50th Anniversary in Charlotte NC?  If so I took a lot of Photos of it because of how nice it was.

Yep, it was finished just in time for that show.  It was actually outside the track at Marcus's Rare Cars Display.
