Well i think I know but 73 was the catalyst. I stumbled across the answer a few days ago doing some other research. When I find a subject that interests me I usually keep following other links for more information or another prospective. Some of it sticks and pops out at times like this. What I had to do is find the price.

The answer is Aluminum wheels. Supposedly four sets were installed that year for photo shoot purposes and they wouldn't hold air. The problem was in design. American Racing made them. You could order them but you couldn't get them but you could get them through the parts department. It doesn't make sense but you could.

That is pretty wild, I remember those wheels well on later ones but yeah, don't remember a 73 with them on it.

Trivia thread

Sorry Bothboy I just panned up and saw that you had the correct answer. The option could be ordered for $175.00 and no one bit then it was discovered there was a problem with the wheels.

Your floor, oh no one was hurt except for shaken up but the family all went out to dinner last night and I wasn't feeling well so I stayed in the Condo. There were seven in my Wifes van when a relastate? lady on her cell phone rear ended them while sitting still. Rear door is smashed in but stayed closed. It will present a real problem when loading up seven days worth of luggage, souvineers, beach junk but at least it will get us home and then straight to the body shop.

Mustang concept car. Concept cars of the fifties and Sixties is one of my great passions. I use to dream of designing them as a job.

You got it. The first time I saw this car was on the cover of popular mechanics in I think 1961.

Trivia thread

You know if I am right an old friend I used to have Jack Roush, built a 1961 or 62 Mustang for Ford. One of his companies, Roush Engineering, did a lot of Fords enginering and concept work. I think Jack started his career at Ford.
He used to have a very very low number Corbra and his museum now is a gear heads dream.
We have lost touch when my health would not allow me to go to the races anymore, but I have some great framed pictures of Jack and my self and his Brother in law in diferent winners circles including twice at the 24 hrs. of Daytona where there was so much work to do with three teams we actually were allowed to help in the pits.

Of course with reproduction bodies this stuff gets all screwed up. But the same rules would apply, if it's original and I think it is, though the firewall doesn't have a little lip as I remember it would. The firewall may have been changed and the lip ground off or something goofy. The difference between a 33 and a 34 is very clear from this shot non the less.

If you want a answer from memory I can't give it to you. After a hour and a half of looking at pictures I think I know. I'll wait a while before giving my answer. This one was tough!
