We are excited to add a new gas tank sending unit to our line up.

All 1965 and 1966 Mustangs along with some 1967 models used a 5/16 inch fuel line, and we have a new sending unit in this size.

This unit features enhanced accuracy due to tighter tolerances in the internal unit.

It comes with the rubber o ring gasket, filter, and a brass float, like the original.

The restoration of the early production 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 continues at Maple Hill Restoration. Painting the stripes was quite a big and time consuming task. Now that Jeremy has that under his belt, the assembly can really begin!

They are back!

We had a very special, limited run of these great lower control arms made, and they are now in stock!

MOOG brand and Made in the USA. These are complete lower control arms with a very high quality ball joint properly riveted in along with the bushing on the mounting end.

These front suspension lower arms are actually a great improvement over the originals and were previously unavailable. Thousands have been used over the years in applications from everyday drivers to Mustangs regularly used on the race track.

We are super excited to be able to offer these again. Don't miss out while they are still available.

Here is the link to order:
