Little help here

Hey guys, hope y'all had some good holidays. The snow's finally melted to the point that I might be able to get the F-100 out of the driveway by tomorrow or so.

Things proceeding smoothly into the new year here at the shop.
Monday afternoon a guy dropped off a new project at the shop...a '72 Mach 1. The car is an original Q code 351CJ car, but, boy, this dude is rough, and body parts are hard to come by.

Anybody know somebody who has a '71-'73 Mustang fastback that might be used as a donor car?
I'm needing the hood and deck lid, both doors, both front fenders and portions of the roof surrounding the back glass.
I can get the hood, lower quarter panels, fenders and deck lid as re-pops, but I havn't been able to locate the doors or even the door skins.

Mathew's in Rose Bud has a lot of what I need, but before I pay his prices, I'd like to see if I can find a sort of complete car with some servicible parts for less.

Thanks,
Wally

They'll pass everything on the road...except a gas station. Don't ask how I know this little tidbit/fact.

I'm not much use on the donor car...but I'll ask a couple of guys around here in the Mustang club if they know of one.

Sorry for the delay, no luck on Fastback up around here. The few that are around are either junk piles, wrecks going for a premium...or actually good looking cars someone has put time & money into.

Yeah, that's what I'm finding, also.
Got a couple of decent doors from Matthew's and he's got a couple other parts I need, too.
A lot less stuff available aftermarket than for the earlier model 'Stangs.
