Just the Details...Mustang Radio Suppressors Mounted at Voltage Regulators

One little detail that is sometimes a bit difficult to find is the Mustang radio suppressor that is attached to one of the voltage regular mounting screws.  They can be re-plated, but then you run into the problem of the piece not functioning properly, not to mention possible poor condition of the wiring plug.

These barrel or can shaped parts were on every Mustang equipped with a radio.  We dug through some parts and came up with a few variations.  We would be interested in any of our readers' feedback.  Which ones have you seen and what production date Mustangs (or other Fords) did they come from?  Email us or comment below.

We found the earlier version ('65-sometime in '66?) with the C3SA-18832-A number.  This one, as the others, has the number "648" in an oval.  Keep in mind, the 64 1/2 style used on generator equipped cars had a different wiring end - not the bullet connector type of end shown in the picture.

We have also found a version with a C6OA-18832-A number.  We have notice two versions - one with a FoMoCo Script in an oval as shown, and one with the Autolite logo.  Both are pictured below and also have the "648" number in the oval.

Let us know what is on your Mustang!!
