warranties and mods
Having read many stories about losing or not losing warranty coverage due to mods,let me tell you what it was like in the 60's. In July 64, I took delivery of a1964 1/2 Mustang 289 K code motor, 271 HP. Ford had standard 2yrs. or 24,000 mile warranty, unless you had a high performance engine. A high perf. engine was defined as any engine with solid lifters these were warrantied at 90 days or 4,000 miles, this was on the drivetrain, the rest of the car had the standard warranty. If you did any type of modification they would void yore warranty, a modification could be anything from headers, traction bars, cheater slicks just about anything, I wouldn't doubt if you took off your stock hubcaps and put on a set of baby moons some dealers would void your warranty.
As far as customer service was concerned, in those days those two words should not be used together in the same sentance. There were no toll free.
phone numbers to call Detroit, long distance calls were very expensive back then. I 'm writing this to let those that are reading this to let them know what it was like back in the day as opposed to the way things are done today. Now most dealers are customer friendly, and will work with you, if not you have customer service reps. and toll free numbers to Detroit. We had none of this back then no lemon laws, no consumer protection angencies nothing to help us. On a side note I lost my warranty the first month, I put on a set of headers, rejetted the carb. traction bars, and re worked the dual point distributer. What the Hell I was only 17 yrs. old. Sold the car in May of 66 when I got drafted, I never had to have any work done I blew one clutch which I replaced myself. Hope you enjoyed this bit of history.
