Gas Tank Sending Unit Lock Ring Tool

This is a tool that every classic Mustang owner should have in their tool box. It is made to "grab" the locking ring that holds in the fuel tank sending unit. 

This works way better and is much safer than using a flat blade screwdriver or punch along with a hammer.

Here is the link:  Mustang Fuel Tank Sending Unit Lock Ring Removal Tool

Don't forget - We also, of course have a full line of Mustang Gas Tanks, Sending Units and related parts in stock!

New Seat Upholstery and Foam in the Shelby Mustang Makes a Huge Difference!

The Green Shelby Mustang gets new seat upholstery and foam.

When your original seat upholstery in your Mustang is not split or torn, it's very tempting to just leave it alone. 

I tell you though...this stuff is over 50 years old, and it's usually flat worn out. This is what we learned in our "driver" GT350 - 1966 SFM6S1732 - we affectionately just call it "the green car."

The seats were super nice, but they were just "flat". The foam in the pleats in the upholstery itself was worn out, and, of course, the seat foam just was not doing its job any longer either. We love to drive this car, and it was time to make it more comfortable!

Of course, we turned to Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration. He completely stripped the seats to prepare them for recovering. The metal frames were in excellent condition, but while they were bare, Jeremy glassbeaded, epoxy primed, and painted them.

We pulled the new TMI seat upholstery from our shelves along with new TMI seat foam. These items just fit so well and make an absolutely huge difference. That new foam is just so much more comfortable!

Keep watching our posts for more little tweaks that we will be making to this GT350 in preparation for some road tours this Fall!

Get out and enjoy your vintage Mustangs and Shelbys!

The new Mustang seat foam, along with the new upholstery look fantastic and will be so much more comfortable than the 50+ year old stuff.

GT350 Lunch Tour

We've made a lot of great friends over the past 40 years being involved with selling parts at Virginia Classic Mustang. It's more than our business...it's also our hobby.

We decided to contact a couple of our friends to do a little day tour in a few '66 Shelby Mustangs. Next thing we know, the group grew to seven cars! Seven 1966 GT350s touring some beautiful back roads. It was a beautiful day to boot!

Enjoy the pictures, and get out a drive those Mustangs!

Customer Cars - 1966 Shelby GT350



We usually don't post back-to-back about the same subject, but we could not help it in this case!

After our customer saw the last Blog Post with the pictures of his cool 1966 GT350, he shared the pictures here along with this message:

The trip went well and we drove down the Blue Ridge, rode the Diamondback and the Tail of the Dragon.
All told we went 1800 miles and seven states in 10 days. We had a great time and made it home safely.

While we love and greatly admire trailered show cars, the longer that you are involved in the hobby, the more you appreciate folks getting out there, driving, and really enjoying these great cars!

Customer Cars - 1966 Shelby GT350

We just love it when our customers drop by the shop in their cars.

It's even better when they are going on a road trip, and better yet when it's a '66 GT350. Throw in Weber carburetors, and wow!!!

Enjoy these pictures! These folks were heading for a nice little road trip vacation to the Great Smoky Mountains.

Mustang Gas Tanks - New Shipment

We just got in a brand new shipment of Gas Tanks!!! These are the good ones...the same gas tanks that we use in the restorations that you see here on our Blog.


Lots of times we will offer at least two different versions of a particular part that is available on the market.  That way our customer can chose which one best meets their particular needs.


In the case of this Gas Tank for your Mustang, we don't think it is a good idea.

The only Gas Tank that we handle are the ones manufactured by Spectra Premium.  They are super nice Fuel Tanks and are made in Canada.  In this particular case, we just don't think that it is worth saving a few bucks on the cheaper tank.

These tanks are available for all of the early Mustangs.  We even have a correct tank without the drain plug for the 1970 Mustangs now.

ER-258  65-68 Mustang Gas Tank with Drain Plug
ER-290  69 Mustang Gas Tank with Drain Plug
ER-565  70 Mustang Gas Tank with Drain Plug
ER-5651 70 Mustang Gas Tank without Drain Plug  '70 Mustangs originally did not have drain plugs.
ER-549   71-73 Mustang Gas Tank
