Mustang Clutch Release Rods


OK-here's another one of those quick, but important, new product posts.

On the 1965 Mustang, the lower clutch release rod (clutch equalizer bar to the clutch lever at bellhousing) was nonadjustable. This was due to the fact that the top rod that runs from the equalizer bar to the pedal was adjustable. This nonadjustable rod was made obsolete from Ford quite a while back, so lots of folks just used the '66 adjustable one.

The 1966 Mustang had an adjustable lower rod because the upper rod to the pedal was nonadjustable.

Got all of that?

Anyway, the 1965 style nonadjustable one is available again. The adjustable '66 style is still available, of course, also.

Here are the part numbers:

1966 GT350 Shelby American Step Plate Labels

Here is a cool item that we got in a few weeks ago. It has already been an extremely popular part.

They are the step plate (or sill plate) labels for the 1966 GT350 Shelby. These labels can, of course, be used on any step plate. Detail is very important on a part like this, and these labels are very, very nice. They feature the correct raised borders and "CS" logos just like the originals.

These particular labels were originally used on most 1966 GT350 Shelbys except for the later serial numbers. Those later cars had the two line label with Shelby American and Los Angeles, CA."

Order part number IN6721 (sold as a pair.)

Check out the below pictures of the actual labels along with a picture of some originals. Please note that the color variation of the labels in the below pictures are due to lighting and do not accurately reflect the actual color. The actual color of these aluminum labels is just like the original.

Order part number SU581.

We also have these boots available:

1966 Mustang Clutch Equalizer Bar


We now have the Clutch Equalizer Bar, commonly referred to as the "Z-Bar," specifically for the V-8 equipped 1966 Mustang. Previously, the Equalizer Bar was available only for a 1965 under our part number BK351. Really, the only different between the two is the fact that the 1965 has the top block for the adjustable rod that connects to the pedal. In 1966, the block was removed and a non-adjustable bar to pedal rod was used.




Please keep in mind that we still have the unique Equalizer Bar specifically for the 289 High Performance Model. It is part number BK191, and the block just needs to be removed for the 1966 model.

Grand Sport Mustang?

Here is what I think is an interesting little piece of Mustang history. I recently picked up this emblem. It is made exactly like a 65-66 style GT Badge, yet, as you can see, it says "Grand Sport." This came from someone who worked for the company that made these prototype badges for the Mustangs.


There is a book called "Mustang: The Complete History of America's Pioneer Ponycar" that was published in 1979. It is written by Gary L. Witzenburg. This emblem is pictured on page 64 of this book along with some other prototype emblems. It is the only other place that I have heard of this particular emblem. Apparently, "Grand Sport" was just one of many names that were considered for a particular option package before the Mustang was built .





Here is a picture of an original production '65 Mustang GT Badge that most all readers are probably familiar with.

Anyway, if someone has any more information about this unique emblem, I would love to hear from you.

Here is another neat detail part. This is the oil resistant sponge rubber sleeve that fits over the power steering hose to protect it from rubbing against other components.

It can be used on any Mustang power steering hose to prevent damage from rubbing. Original equipment on 1969-71 Mustangs with the following engines: Boss 302, 429 and 428CJ and all Ford cars with a power steering oil cooler.

These are exact reproductions of the original.The 20 inch length is enough to do all cars. Cut to fit as different lengths were used on each model in different locations.

Order part number SU1181.

540,000 Mile Comet

A friend just emailed this to me this morning. I know it is not a Mustang, but this video is pretty cool. This lady is 89 years old and has driven her Comet over 540,000 miles. She is the original owner too!

I hope that I am still driving when I'm 89!
