1965 and 1966 Mustang Tail Light Chrome Bezels.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
Even some of the nicest original Mustangs have pitted chrome tail light doors.

We have new ones whether you are on a budget or are building a high end show car.

Our top end bezels are made in the USA and feature super quality chrome along with the correctly painted black details.  Click here to read more or order.  We use these on our own Mustangs and have found them to be superior to NOS Ford bezels.

If you are on a budget, we recommend our economy Mustang tail light doors.  Click here to see more about these or to order.

The original radiator appears to be in great shape.  It still retains its C7ZE Z2 tag.  It will be taken for a clean out and pressure test and go back in the car in its original condition.

The heater assembly is super clean and looks great.  Everything has to be reliable and work on this car, so it was removed to check the heater core and install new gaskets and seals.

SAAC 40 - Shelby American Automobile Club's 40th Convention


Wow!  The Shelby American Automobile Club will hold their 40th national convention this August!

It's hard to believe that it's been 40 years.  I remember the first convention that I attended...SAAC 4. That was a long time ago!  I've made lots of friends over the years with my involvement in the hobby, and I'm looking forward to this event.

The event will be held near Pocono, PA at the Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA and the Kalahari Resort in Pocono Manor, PA.  The resort is brand new and features an indoor water park.  As with all conventions, there will be a Thursday evening social event, swap meet, banquet with evening program, open track time, popular vote car show, and a judged concours car show.

Brand new for this convention is the location of the judged concours show.  It will be held inside at the Kalahari Resort!  Yes, inside!!  The judging will take place on Friday with the cars remaining in place for the Friday evening dinner and program.  Plan to register now as there is a limit of 6 cars per class.

Complete information, along with online and printable registration forms can be found at www.SAAC.com.  You won't want to miss it!!

Virginia Classic Mustang History...1983

Virginia Classic Mustang Catalog from 1983!!
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

We have a Throwback Thursday #TBT post for today.  Above is the cover of our 1983 Virginia Classic Mustang (Virginia Mustang Supply at that time) Catalog.  We also have some old pictures of our 1983 showroom and shop area.  At the time, we actually had a restoration shop right here.

Times have certainly changed.  It's difficult to believe that this was 32 years ago!

Enjoy the pictures!
