General Discussion / Re: 1970 Starter Cable Length?

Does the Marti cable have CANADA molded on the solenoid end? Also, the terminals on my Marti D0OF cable don't match my originals.

All. Ed sent me an email that the cable to be used is the DOZF-C cable, which is 46". So I called Eric at Marti auto to discuss. They do have this cable, and it will fit the new block clamps Scott is selling, but it is 6 gauge wire. The cable that came in my Marti repo cable kit is DOOF-A, is 4 gauge wire, and about 41" long. It obviously is too short to use the new block clamps. I emailed Eric and he is going to see if a correct length cable can be made with 4 gauge wire. Hot 428s need as much amperage as possible, which means the 4 gauge cable is better. Rick

Keep us posted, please! It would also be great to know if it'll be possible to purchase the starter cable by itself.

Yes, August 20 is too early for your December built car.  Here is the stamp from my (sold) SCJ car and the 1937 stamp is almost off the edge.  Build date 3/69.

Actually Built Date 9/19/68 and fender date stamps 9 6 D? and 9 5 D3.  No 1936 or 1969 stamps.  Brian

General Discussion / 1936 and 1969 stamp on fender/sheetmetal

Hi all,
I read on the Boss forum that the numbers 1936 and 1969 stamped on eg fenders dont represent the year. Its just a number and no one seems to know what it means.
Also in Mustang monthly I read "Sheetmetal date codes didn't include the year. Instead, the code provided the month and day of manufacture, the plant, and the shift."

Q: is a "1969 8 20 D3" (August 20) stamp to early on a December 13, 1968 built 1969 Mustang?

Anyone who has a 1968 built 1969 who could check their stamps?

Found this video of the dealership where my 1970 Mach 1 was originally purchased in October, 1969. So sad.

Got my attention real quick when I read ' Santa Ana, Ca '.  Norwalk, Ohio is probably not doable for me.  Brian
Where you guys getting it that the show is in Santa Ana?  That where the sponsor that is going to host it is from. The release, if you continue reading the whole thing, says Norwalk,OH ::)

I would ask the organizers if they know someone.  It's possible that a CJ fanatic isn't taking his car or a friend of someone that is might be thrilled to help and has a sweet rig that he's been longing to use since it mostly sits around.

 I've towed many cars from Spokane to Los Angeles and it's not a cake walk.  An enclosed trailer weighs something in the neighborhood of 7 to 10K and with the drag factor you need a beast of an engine to keep up with traffic.

The 50th Anniversary excitement builds!

I strongly suggest to pre-register early.  The only way to enjoy the celebrity dinner and other VIP events is through pre-registration.  It also gets you the reserved parking in the Cobra Jet display area which will be separate from the other show car field.
