Strip Caulk Sealer

Gray Caulking Strip for Sealing
©Virginia Classic Mustang Inc

We now have both gray and black Strip Caulking. This was originally used as a sealer on Mustangs (and other cars) under fenders, drain hole covers, gas tanks, etc.

Gray and/or black was originally used on Mustangs depending upon the time and plant of production.

This sealer has so many other uses. It's great stuff!

Below are the links to order, or you can click on either picture to order.

I hope you enjoy these pictures of the restoration of a very early production 1965 GT350 Mustang. This is one of the cars early enough to have been modified at the Venice, CA facility before Shelby American moved to the Los Angeles Airport plant.

The car is owned by a customer. Virginia Classic Mustang has supplied many of the parts along with consultation for the restoration. The restoration is being performed by Maple Hill Restoration. We have featured quite a few of Jeremy's restorations of our own cars here on the Blog. His work is really incredible. It's so much fun seeing this level of detail!

This Shelby is now painted, and the "fun part" of the restoration is rolling along as things start going together.

We have tagged all of the posts featuring the restoration of this car, and you can find them all here by clicking this link.
