Mustang Export Brace



Adding an export brace to your Mustang can be a great improvement. It really eliminates a lot of "flexing" that is common in a unibody car such as an early Mustang. These braces were originally installed on Mustangs that were exported out of the country. They were also installed on the early Shelbys.


When installing an export brace, please be aware that the shock towers often may be slightly "leaned in" on some cars due to rust or collision damage.


We have two qualities of export braces. One we call a standard quality, and the other is called concours quality. The concours quality export brace is easily worth the extra money. It was made using the original Ford Blueprints. The fit is much better, the stamping is much deeper, and the overall finish and quality is just much nicer.


We also have the correct 65-66 Shelby GT350 Export Brace. It is different from the others in that the mounting holes above the firewall are evenly spaced.


Here is a list of all the braces that are currently available:

Our Mustang Parts and Body Illustrations Manuals on CD are very valuable tools when putting together a Mustang.   These are available for all model years from 1965 to 1973. Each manual is a comprehensive collection of detailed part and body illustrations that are extremely useful for any restoration project.

With extensive bookmarks and indexes, finding the illustration you need is easy. If you want to make your restoration project a lot easier, this is the manual you should have!

Vintage Film Footage from 1965-66 SCCA Race - Candlestick Park - San Francisco


I think that it is always cool to see vintage film footage of cars.  This one was forwarded to me by a buddy.  It was shot in San Francisco in the sixties of an SCCA race at Candlestick Park (Candlestick Point).  Of particular interest here are the GT350 Shelbys and Cobras.

This video was forwarded to Chuck Cantwell, who was the Project Manager for the GT350 at Shelby American at that time.  He made these comments:


Dave,
That is really interesting footage. I was there for that race. The San Francisco Region paid several drivers/owners to come. That’s why we had Phil Hill in the Cobra and Ed Leslie in the first GT350 (5R002, which I had won the Willow Springs Nationals the week before in), besides jerry Titus in the GT350 (5R001, the second racer we built), and as well as Jim Hall in the Chaparral. That was a particularly dangerous course with electric poles along the course in places and some huge (10 ft. cube) concrete blocks outside the corners at another place. Two drivers died that weekend, one a McLaren which hit one of the poles, knocked down some wires and burst into flames. And Milt Minter rolled his Lotus Super 7. The E-Jag in the pics was Merle Brennan’s Huffaker Motors car from San Fran who finished 3rd in the division after Jim Adams in the Hollywood Tiger and Jerry Titus in the Shelby GT350. At Candlestick, Jerry finished 1st and Ed Leslie finished 2nd. Those photos were neat to see. Thanks for forwarding them.

Thanks so much to my buddy, Dave Redman for forwarding this video to me and to Chuck Cantwell for the great comments!!

68-69 Mustang Chrome Styled Steel Wheels

1968 and 1969 Mustang Chrome Styled Steel Wheel.  Available in various sizes.  www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com


Our 68-69 Mustang Chrome Styled Steel Wheels have been very popular.  We have them in many sizes including 14 x 6, 14 x 7, 15 x 7, and now our new 15 x 8 size.

This new 15 x 8 size gives you that great depth on the rim and that wide stance, and particularly looks good mounted on the rear.

These wheels feature an all chrome rim, so you don't have to use a trim ring.  They look great on all Fords, not just Mustangs.

We also have the center caps for these wheels.  They are available plain and with the GT emblem.

1966 Shelby Magnum 500 Wheels

1966 GT350H Hertz Shelby Chrome Magnum 500 Wheel.  This wheel also originally installed on a few other 66 GT350's.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
The 66 Shelby GT350 Mustang has a unique Magnum 500 wheel that you just don't find on other cars.  The difference is the unique rim configuration with the long first "step."  These wheels were difficult to find even over 25 years ago when I restored my first GT350H (Hertz Shelby.)

All of the 1966 Hertz GT350's came with this unique chrome Magnum 500 wheel.  There were a few other '66 Shelbys that originally were equipped with this wheel in chrome, and many other '66's had the same wheel in a painted finish.

This unique Magnum wheel is now available as a brand new part, and it is made in the USA.  Yeah, it is more expensive than our "standard" Magnum 500 wheels, but if you need the correct wheel for your '66 Shelby, this is it.

Our part number is HB191.
