Mustang Ratchet Style Jack Handle Wrench

This is the reproduction of the early Mustang Ratcheting Jack Handle Wrench.  It features nice clear/silver zinc plating.  It is a very authentic reproduction of the original.

This is not a new item, but I thought it deserved a Blog post.  The 1965-67 Mustang originally came with a ratchet style jack handle wrench.  It was a very weak design, and I always suggest only using one for "show."

There are several versions.  The earlier style has an "open end" handle.  The late style that appeared sometime in the '65 model run has a "closed end" handle.  There was also a style, that I think appeared later, with a straight, rather that angled as shown in these pictures, head.


Note the "closed" style handle on this Mustang Ratcheting Jack Handle Wrench.  This one appeared sometime during the 1965 model year production.

The reproduction that we have is the earlier style "open end" handle Mustang Jack Wrench.  It is our part number ST-279.
