Cobra Aluminum Oil Pan

Here is a cool little slideshow showing the before and after pictures of an abused Cobra Aluminum Oil Pan. This is an original pan from an early '66 GT350. The restoration turned out great!

45th Anniversary Mustang Show

The 45th Anniversary Mustang Show was held at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL. This is an absolutely beautiful facility. Here are just a few pictures showing the track and the areas around the track. None of these pictures give you any idea at all of the huge number of Mustangs that were at the show.

45th Anniversary Mustang Show

I attended the 45th Anniversary Mustang Show this past weekend at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, AL.

Over the next few days or maybe weeks, I will be posting some pictures from the show. I'll just start with a weird one. There was a lot of talk about this particular car. I'm guessing it is because folks do not expect to see a rare car in this condition at a Mustang show. I absolutely love '65 and '66 GT350's, but I don't quite understand the fascination with this particular one.


This is one of the '66 GT350's that were used by Hertz as rental cars. Most of them were black with gold stripes as pictured here. This one was still owned by the guy that purchased in 1967. His wife drove it until 1980 when it was parked. The car was parked because too many people bothered her about selling it. Anyway, the owner "dug it out" for the show to display it...dirt and all.

Aluminum Radiator for 65-66 Mustang with later model engine



OK, you've got a '70 or later 302 engine or maybe a late model 5.0 engine in your 1965 or 1966 Mustang. You want to cool it with a nice radiator. The outlets on the original 65-66 radiator are both on the passenger's side. With the later engines, the bottom outlet is on the driver's side.

We just got these new aluminum radiators in that will solve the problem. These are just like our other very popular aluminum radiators.

Here is the description:

This radiator has the top outlet on the passenger's side and the bottom outlet on the driver's side for 65-66 model car with a later (70-up) 302 engine. It also has a automatic transmission cooler in bottom tank, but can be used on manual transmission car by plugging the holes.
Features extra large one inch tubes for 4 row efficiency but with 5-7 lbs. less weight. We also added a baffle at the top to help evenly distribute the flow of hot water across the upper part of the radiator. The original radiators had a real problem distributing the hot water to the far left side of the radiator. We have tested our design and recorded significant changes in the temperatures across the radiator's cooling tubes.
This radiator will bolt in just like the original.

Mustang Heater Cores



We now have two styles of Heater Cores for the popular application of 65-66 (all models) and 67-68 (without Air Conditioning only) Mustangs.




The original part number IN9022 was changed to an aluminum replacement design by the original manufacturer. This is a nice heater core, but we have found that in order to install these in some heater cases/boxes, it may be necessary to slightly file the two holes in the case where the heater core tubes come out. The tubes may be just a bit too close together, so the holes in the case may have to be filed to accommodate perfect fitment.




We also just got a new heater core IN8304 that is just like the original copper design and fits the case with no modifications.

Cool Thunderbolt and Galaxie Models!




The other day I posted a picture of a model that was sent to me back in 1985. I was not finished. My friend sent me even more pictures in that same envelope. I'm really glad that I saved them, because they are so good. He built these models himself, and they are quite impressive.


Just check out some of the details here. The Thunderbolt features a hand made hood bubble. All of the lettering was done by hand except the "Eastern Ford Dealers" lettering. Just note the detail on the engine shot!


This Thunderbolt and Galaxie tow car were featured in "Rod & Custom Models" back in the '60's. Anybody have the copy of that magazine?

New Part-67-68 Mustang Radiator Support Bracket



A few weeks ago, we posted about the 64 1/2-66 version of this part. This is the metal bracket that the adjustable radiator support bumper screws into. It was originally spot welded to the radiator support. This one is for 67-68 models. These brackets are already attached to the 67-68 Mustang Radiator Supports ( SM551) that we currently have available.
Order part number SM552 or click on the picture.

1965 Mustang Fastback



I just ran across some pictures that a friend mailed to me back in 1985. Wow! That was 24 years ago!
Anyway, he purchased a brand new 1965 Silver Smoke Grey Mustang Fastback in 1965. He added the American Torq-Thrust Wheels and Goodyear Blue Streaks shortly after he purchased the car.
Anyway, it was a beautiful car.


By the way, this is a photo of a model that he built years later of that very same car. Did you notice that it was not a real car?
