New! 65-68 Mustang Convertible Top Boot Retainer Strip

1965-68 Mustang Convertible Top Boot Retainer.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
This is a really cool part that is now in stock!  It's the 1965-68 Convertible Top Boot Retainer.  The front edge of the top boot is made with a "V" shaped plastic strip sewn in.  The plastic strip fits into this retainer and secures the front of the top boot.

This reproduction retainer is made of polished stainless steel - exactly like the original.  Honestly, because of its stainless steel construction, this part is usually in good shape.  If you are missing it though, this part has previously been very, very difficult to find.

Order our part number ST-1522.

Check out our last Blog Post about '66 Shelby # 6S933.  The restoration is being performed by Jeremy Turner at Maple Hill Restoration.  This Shelby is super nice, straight, and complete, so the restoration will be a bit easier than others.

Today, we will look at some component restoration.  As mentioned, everything is nice as you can see in the pictures.  The unique Shelby Export Brace, shock tower caps (with washers), Monte Carlo bar, outer shock tower covers, fan shroud, sway bar, traction bars and brackets, rear leaf springs, etc. were prepped and cleaned for refinishing.
