1965-66 GT350 Cobra Aluminum Oil Pan




Just thought that I would post these pictures of a restored Aluminum Cobra Oil Pan. This was the pan that was originally installed on the 65-66 GT350 Mustangs. This pan was was sprayed with a clear epoxy primer and then low gloss clear. This gives the pan a nice protective finish, yet it does not look at all like it has been painted. The "fins" on the oil pan were then polished. Other details are listed as captions on the photos.

67 Shelby Tail Light Extension Plug Set



Here is a new and unique part that we now have in stock. It is the Tail Light Extension Plug Set for a 1967 Shelby Mustang. The Part Number is ER5812, and one set does both sides. It is designed to splice into the regular wiring harness, kind of like the originals did.

1965 Mustang GT Coupe Raffle Winner


The other week, we posted about a Mustang Raffle taking place at http://www.winagtmustang.com/. We had several of our readers ask if we had any details about the outcome of the raffle. Kenyon Wurster from Uftring Auto Mall sent us this picture and information over this past weekend.

Kenyon says that the winner was John Wilson from Canton, IL. He purchased $300.00 worth of raffle tickets on Saturday morning after listening to a radiothon promoting the raffle all night at work. A 1965 Mustang is his mother's dream car, since it is the year that she graduated from high school. She will have to learn to drive a manual transmission equipped car though!

The pictures shows Gary Uftring (owner of the dealership), Mari Osborne (Children's Hospital representative), John Wilson (winner), Kenyon Wurster (Uftring Auto Mall employee who put the whole thing together) and John Riely (radio DJ.)

Over $28,000 was raised for Children's Hospital of Illinois.

Made in the Original Ford Tooling! 1969-70 Step Plates



This is an absolutely great new part that just became available. It is the 1969-70 Mustang Step Plate made in the Original Ford Tooling. We call them Step Plates, but we have heard them also called Scuff Plates or Sill Plates. Anyway, these are a lot nicer than the current reproductions. They are even much better than some of the NOS (New Old Stock) ones that you may find. Repairs have been made to this original tooling since these last service parts were made.

These step plates fit all body styles of the 1969-70 Mustangs. They feature very nice detail and come with a protective plastic film. For many years, the Ford Service Parts have been made from brushed aluminum (possibly because of lower cost material.) The step plates that were originally installed on the assembly line were made from polished aluminum. These are made just like the originals!

Order Part Number IN712.

Installing Insulation During Headliner Installation

Our friend, John Murphy has sent us some more pictures. We never pass up an opportunity to post pictures of his latest project. This time, we just have some images of the headliner installation. John has used the insulation on the underside of the roof just like the insulation used in his carpet installation. Details like this during your restoration can make a big difference in the final outcome. Again, this installation is in John's 1968 California Special Mustang.

71-73 Mustang Windshield Washer Hose and Tee Kit


We are finding that more and more parts are becoming available for the 1971-73 model Mustangs. Here is one of the latest. It is the Windshield Washer Hose and Tee Kit. It features the tee and the unique tee/plastic fitting that is difficult to find.

71-73 Mustang Steering Column Seal at Firewall


This is just a really unique part that just came in. It is the rubber seal at the firewall for the steering column and clutch rod on the 1971-73 model Mustangs. This part is almost always torn or dry-rotted and needs replacement. Up until now, it was almost impossible to find a replacement. This one is, of course, unique to the manual transmission equipped cars due to it's "built in" clutch rod boot. The same seal for the automatic transmission equipped cars is just a flat piece.

67-68 Mustang Foot Operated Windshield Washer Pump



In 1967 and 1968, Ford went with a foot operated windshield washer pump under the dash on a Mustang. It is a fairly simple design, and now many of them no longer work. If yours does not pump the windshield washer fluid anymore, it may be a simple fix. We just got the rubber boot in stock that may just take care of the problem. Often times, this original boot is cracked or split.

Tri-Power on a 289 HiPo Mustang















One of the many accessories available from Ford for your Mustang (or any Ford) back in the sixties was the "Cobra 6-V Induction Kit." This was a 3 x 2V Holley Carburetor set up with an cast aluminum intake and oval air cleaner. I've had one tucked away for many, many years. It will finally be finding a home as we "re-restore" the 289 High Performance Convertible that we have written about here in our Blog.

As I was getting the air cleaner assembly out the other day to refinish, I shot a few quick pictures of the carb. set up and the original air cleaner assembly.

Carpet Installation in a 1968 California Special Mustang

Just a quick post today with some pictures that our friend, John Murphy sent us. We ordered a set of carpet for him in Dark Red (Maroon, Burgandy, or whatever you choose to call it.) We keep this color in stock, but he wanted the carpet with the "mass backed" option. We have written about this before. It is a $50.00 extra option over the price of the regular carpet that we sell. It is an extra backing made onto the carpet that just gives it more shape and really makes it fit better. Please note that this "option" is currently not listed on the web site. If you call us, we will be glad to special order a set for you. We usually try and keep a black set in stock also.

Please note that John used a aluminum backed insulation that he purchased in bulk and cut on the floor under the carpet.

Check out a few pictures of the installation on John's 1968 California Special Mustang. We hope to see more pictures on John's new project soon!

1968 Mustang LH Air Vent Cable Assembly with Knob



This isn't really a new part, but it's one of those parts that you just may have not known that it was available. When it was offered, I thought that it probably just would not be that popular. I learned though that these cables are almost always broken on 1968 Mustangs and Shelbys. Consequently, this has been a very popular part!

Our 2009 Mustang Parts and Accessories Catalog is here!


We actually were a few days ahead of schedule with our 2009 Mustang Parts Catalog. If you are on our mailing list, it was mailed to you on Wednesday, Nov. 19th. If you are not on our list, please click here to request one.

Our covers were photographed again this year by Troy Kruger from Custom Show Boards. As an amateur photographer myself, I continue to be amazed by Troy's photography. His graphic and Photoshop skills are also quite apparent in his work. We really encourage you to check out his work on his web site. He is constantly coming up with new designs.

Troy has some pretty cool cars also. One of them is our 2009 Cover Car. How about a 1966 Mustang GT Convertible with the K Code engine package? This unique car also features Styled Steel Wheels, Pony Interior and a 4 speed transmission. I love those 289 HiPo Mustangs! Below are some more images that Troy sent for you to enjoy. Thanks again, Troy!
