1965 Mustang High Performance Convertible Restoration

Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration is continuing to make progress on our HiPo Mustang Convertible project.  Here are some of the latest pictures.

Rear Leaf Spring Stamping showing the "5556S" for the High Performance Models.  The "204" is the day of the year.  This is July 23, 1964.  Our Mustang has a scheduled production date of August 10th.

This picture shows the plastic strap that temporairily held the rear parking brake cable.  This strap was later cut off or broken after the cables were in place and installed.

 Here is the "restored" version of the rear parking brake cable strap.
 The wheel cylinders with the small bleeder screws were sent out for rebuild with brass sleeves.
Rear valance is now installed with a few end screws on each side painted.  On most cars the valance was hung with a few screws, paint was applied, and then the other screws were installed.

The rear end assembly and leaf springs are installed!

The dated master cylinder has been rebuilt and brass sleeved.  After getting some ideas from Charles Turner and observing some original master cylinders, Jeremy was able to detail the part out like most originals that we have seen.  If you are reading this far into the post, you have probably seen Charles' Blog.  If not, please check it out by clicking here! 

More detail on the master cylinder.

Here is the wiper motor along with associated parts attached just waiting to be installed under the dash.
