    I have a 1972 Mustang Convertible and I'm looking for some specific parts.

    The first one is the vent louvers on each end of the dash and next to the doors. They are rectangular, vertical louvers. The Mustang catalog I looked at does not have them and the Mustang parts dealer I talked to said he wouldn't know where to find any. Any suggestions?

    The second one is two new rims as some of the ones I have are not true. This car has the the E70X14 option so the tires are P215/70-R14 and a the rims are six inches wide front to back. (My father has a 1973 Mustang convertible without the option so those tires are P195/75-R14 and the rims are five inches wide front to back). I'd bet that Ford has used those rims on many other models and for many other years. Does anyone know if these rims were on T-Bird, Lincolns, Montego, etc. and where in use for example 1970 to 1985 on other models? That would widen my search as so far I have been unsuccessful in finding the rims I need.

    Thanks!

    Are you talking about steel rims or Magnums? 71 -73 Cougars use most of the same dash pieces and 71-73 Mustangs but they are as hard to come by as a Mustang.

    Just the standard steel rims. I don't think I've ever seen a convertible with the Magnum rims, but I'm sure they exist.

    Are you saying that Cougar louvers are easier to find over the Mustang louvers? Surely they made more Mustangs.

    No i am just saying that cougars use the same dash parts so if you have to hunt through a wrecking yard you will have more options.
