NEW!! Mustang Heater Blower Motor

64 1/2 -65 Mustang Heater Blower Motor.  2 Speed / 3 Wire design that was used before 4/1/65.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
We now have  super nice, new versions of the Mustang heater blower motors.  Unlike previous offerings, these feature the correct "closed case" design and look just like the originals.  The tooling is all new providing not only the correct look, but higher efficiency, limited three year warranty, and the correct color wiring with proper plugs.

They are available in the early version that was used on Mustangs before 4/1/65 production and the later version after 4/1/65 that was used on the rest of the 65-68 Mustangs from 4/1/65.

The early version is the 2 speed motor with the correct orange and red wires along with the black ground wire.  This one is part number IN-8093 - click on the link to order!

The later version is the 3 speed motor with the correct brown and yellow wires for the 65-68 Mustangs.  This one is part number IN-8094 - click on the link to order!

Cobra Valve Cover Hold Down Tab Set

Cobra Valve Cover Hold Down Tab Set.  Originally installed on later production 1966 GT350 Mustangs.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

During the production of 1966 Shelby GT350 Mustangs, there was a change made from using the open letter Buddy Bar Cobra valve covers to the "solid letter" black Cobra valve covers.

Apparently, there was a problem with cracking around the mounting holes due from over tightening these valve covers.  The solution was to use rather unique hold down tabs in order to spread out the pressure of the mounting bolts.

These hold down tabs started to be installed by Shelby America on many of the '66 GT350s with these valve covers.  There are actually three different shapes used in the set.  Up to this point, original hold downs have been nearly impossible to find as they were usually lost over the years when valve covers were removed.

We have made exact reproduction sets of these special valve cover hold downs.  They are made here in the USA, feature the exact thickness, correct cut, and correct black zinc plating.  The sets are available with and without mounting bolts.

The Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) just held their 39th annual convention (SAAC39) at Road America Raceway in Elkhart Lake, WI May 15-17, 2014.  It was a great time!  It's always fun to see all of the Shelbys and related vehicles and even better to see old friends and meet new ones.

During the first evening of the convention, there was a cruise to downtown Elkhart Lake ending with a little informal car show.  Even race cars were allowed to participate in the cruise as the local police provided an escort. It was a great kick off to the convention with lots of Shelbys, Cobras, Mustangs, and other cars participating.

Enjoy the photos.  We will have more photos from the convention in our next post!

SAAC 39 Shelby Convention at Road America

1966 Mustang Coupe with only 56 miles.  Perkins Restoration.
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
The Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) just held their 39th annual convention (SAAC39) at Road America Raceway in Elkhart Lake, WI May 15-17, 2014.  It was a great time!  It's always fun to see all of the Shelbys and related vehicles and even better to see old friends and meet new ones.

One of the highlights of our trip was visiting Perkins Restoration.  We have known Bob for over 30 years but had never had the opportunity to visit his shop.  He graciously hosted an open house last Wednesday and Thursday for folks attending SAAC39.

We knew that he had lots of cool cars, parts, and memorabilia, but honestly, it was overwhelming to see his incredible collection.  From rare factory drag Mustangs to a '66 Mustang with 56 miles to rare Ford banners to rare accessories and parts...the list goes on.

This post is rather picture heavy, but if you like Mustangs (of course you do, you are reading this Blog!), you will enjoy the pictures.

We will have more pictures from the convention itself in Friday's post.
