1965 and 1966 Mustang Coupe and Convertible Trunk Lid Torsion Rod Set - New Part!

1965 and 1966 Mustang Coupe and Convertible Trunk Lid Torsion Rod / Spring Set - Pair
We now have the torsion rods that hold up the trunk lid on the 65-66 Mustang Coupe and Convertible. These rods kind of act like springs in holding the weight of the trunk lid so it stays in an upright position when open.  Order part number SM-9101.

We also have the rubber sleeve for these (part number WS-24).  It mounts on one of the rods to keep metal to metal from rubbing together.

Keep in mind that these trunk torsion rods are available for other years and body styles listed below:

SM-9102   65-66 Mustang Fastback Trunk Lid Torsion Rod / Spring (only one used on a fastback)

SM-9571  67-68 Mustang Coupe and Convertible Torsion Rod / Spring Set of 2

Mustang Museum

This was posted on our Facebook page by Jim Smart, long time Mustang writer, fan, editor and all around good guy.

Time to begin a national conversation.  The Mustang Museum.  No long and involved marketing studies, mult-city visits/studies, expensive advertising agencies, or large egos.  Just a grass roots movement with rock solid accountability that puts The Mustang Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.  Okay hardcore Mustang buffs.  We have abundant energy and enthusiasm.  Time to heal the wounds of the original failed Mustang Experience effort and put it behind us.

Are you with me?  Time for everyone and anyone in the Mustang industry to get on board-Ford Motor Company, its suppliers, parts businesses, car clubs, editorial types, and certainly the Mustang Club of America.  This must be a global effort - every Mustang enthusiast from around the world.

It must be in Dearborn, Michigan.  And when it opens - we call it The Mustang Homecoming...Detroit needs a huge shot in the arm.  So does Dearborn where MUSTANG was born.  Let's get focused and make this happen.  No more excuses.  No more delays.

Let's get this thing open by the Mustang's 60th Anniversary.  Write to me at

1965-73 Mustang High Performance Spring Perch

1965-73 Mustang High Performance Spring Perch with a synthetic elastomer bushing.
When you are checking out and/or restoring the front suspension on a 1965-73 Mustang (or other Ford for that matter), one of the most common parts to replace is the spring perch.  This is also referred to as the spring seat and bushing assembly.

We now offer three versions of this part:

SU-129   This is the stock 65-73 Mustang Spring Perch with the rubber bushing

SU-1291   This is the 65-73 Mustang Spring Perch with the roller bearing.  These are sold as a pair and are absolutely the ultimate spring perch for street or track.

The roller bearing perches are a bit pricey at $199.95 a pair, so now we have another alternative from Scott Drake Mustang Parts.  It is our part number SU-1292.  It is a Mustang High Performance Spring Perch with a synthetic elastomer bushing.  It's like polyurethane but will not squeak, and it's only priced at $59.95 each.  This bushing also rotates a full 360 degrees for ease of movement and installation.  A grease zerk fitting is fitted at the bottom center of the bushing also.

Just the Details...1966 Shelby Mustang GT350

The original 289 HiPo engine had never been out of this 1966 Shelby.  Here you can see the original orange paint markings and "HP" marking.
If you have been reading our Blog, you are familiar with our green 1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang.  It's a fairly original car that we have chosen to clean up and keep as a "driver".  The original engine has never been out. We decided to remove it for cleaning and painting.  The last owner painted the block and heads black, and we wanted to restore it back to the original blue.

The under hood area and fender aprons will be only cleaned and not painted, again, trying to keep an original look.  Here are some pictures of the engine removal along with some clean up of a few parts.  Take a look at the captions for more information.

Everything is ready to come out!

This image shows the assembly date on the T10 transmission in the 1966 Shelby.  "C" in March - "1" is the day - "6" is 1966.  The last "2" is probably the shift.

    re-chromed, but they are FORD bumpers not aftermarket,

65-73 Mustang Convertible Top Trim - New Parts!

65-73 Mustang Convertible Rear Top Bow Trim wire on.  Concours correct.

We now have "show correct" / concours convertible top rear bow molding in both black and white.  This trim is commonly referred to as "wire on".

Originally, this trim was a plastic channel with a plastic slide in insert.  The larger plastic trim is stapled to the bow and the smaller inner trim piece slides in the larger piece.  Our parts come in a 5 foot length, which is enough to do one car.  It is available in black or white.  It is made in the USA.  

This trim is exactly like the original part used on all 1965-73 Mustang convertibles.  It is not included in any convertible top kits.  All replacement tops use the vinyl wrapped replacement style pieces.

This original trim is wider than the replacement style trim and requires wider stainless steel end tips.  We have the exact correct tips also.  

Here is a summary of all of the parts with numbers.  Click on any of them to visit our web site showing the specific part.
