65-66 GT350 Mustang Oil Cap to Air Cleaner Base Hose

Hose Kit with Clamps for 65-66 GT350 Mustang Shelby.  This hose fits from the oil cap to the air cleaner base.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
A lot of Shelby owners have asked us about the hose that goes from the oil cap to the air cleaner base on a 1965 and 1966 GT350 Mustang Shelby.  We finally got around to sourcing this.  The hose is ribbed like the original.  It has no markings like the originals that we have seen.

We measured several originals and came up with a common length of right under nine inches, so that is what is in the kit.  The proper "squeeze type" clamps are also included.

This hose would have also been originally used on any 289 HiPo Mustang that was originally delivered to a California DSO.  This was basically the smog or emissions equipment back in 1965 for the High Performance Mustang.

Our part number is EG-3952.

Just the Details...1965 Mustang Convertible



Wow!  This '65 Mustang Convertible is starting to really come together.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

Today, we have some more images of the '65 Mustang Convertible that Jeremy at Maple Hill Restoration (www.MapleHillResto.com) has been restoring.  Again, it's a Twilight Turquoise (beautiful color, by the way) convertible with a 200 six cylinder engine, Dagenham 4 speed transmission, Air Conditioning, Console, Rally Pac, and White interior.

As it goes together, it is now over the pit, and we were able to shoot some images of some of the incredible detail.

I'll make one comment about the underside color before anyone asks. :)  The original black finish was duplicated here, and it is a rather glossy black.  We have found this on most Dearborn built Mustangs in the 1964-early 1965 production time (may have been used at other times also).



Nice detail on the six cylinder Mustang idler arm.

www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
As we continue to share pictures of Jeremy Turner's (www.MapleHillResto.com) 1965 Mustang Convertible, we have gotten a ton of questions about the "roll around" that he built for the front end of the Mustang.  Well, here are some pictures to give you an idea of what he built.  It works perfectly!!

New! Polished American Torq-Thrust II Wheel with Durable PVD Coating

American Torq-Thrust II Wheel.  Polished Aluminum with durable PVD coating.  Looks like chrome but more durable.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
We just received a shipment of new American Racing Wheels.  In the shipment, we received the latest polished aluminum Torq-Thrust II Wheels with the new, durable PVD coating.  PVD stands for "Physical Vapor Deposition".  

So, why are these nicer than the ones without the coating?  It's simple, this coating provides the durability of paint with the look of chrome.  Actually, it gives the wheel a finish that is actually more durable than chrome.  This finish will stand up to the elements without the constant polishing that is required on a non-protected polished aluminum wheel.  It's just a long lasting, durable clear finish, and the chrome look is fantastic!

These wheels also feature a very nice, quality one piece design.  The back of the rim is finished in a beautiful black finish.  Actually the entire wheel has a bit of a "black reflection" because of this finish.

Here is the list of sizes!
