Another Cool New Mustang Part! FoMoCo Stamped Stainless Steel Hose Clamp Set

We have the correct tower style Wittek hose clamps, but if you want easy to use and re-usable clamps, you may want to consider our new worm gear hose clamps. These aren't just any hose clamps either! They are the perfect "finishing touch" to your Mustang with the cool FoMoCo logo right on the top. Note: Only the small fuel line clamps do not have the FoMoCo logo.

They are not generic hose clamps. These clamps are sized properly for a clean look with no excess "tail" after tightening. Stainless steel construction means they won't rust.

Sets for small block Fords (260, 289, 302, 351W) are currently available. A set includes the following clamps:

  • 2 lower radiator 2 1/8" clamps
  • 2 upper radiator 2" clamps
  • 6 heater hose / thermostat bypass hose 5/8" clamps
  • 6 fuel line / gas sending unit 5/16"-3/8" clamps


Note: These will not fit a 6 cylinder. Kit will work on big blocks with the exception of one lower radiator hose clamp at the water pump (it is too small).

Our part number is PE-102S. Check them out by clicking here.

January 2017 Petersen Museum Shelby Cruise-In

January 2017 Petersen Museum Shelby Cruise-In
The Petersen Museum in Los Angeles, CA (www.petersen.org) is a really cool place. If you are a car guy or gal, it should be on your bucket list. It's even better to visit when Shelbys are involved!

This past weekend, they held their annual Shelby Cruise-In. Being all the way across the country, we (like probably a lot of our readers here) were unable to attend. Fortunately, we can experience it through the great pictures from our friend and fellow blogger, ShelbyGuy. Please check out his blog with more pictures at the following link:  https://www.shelbyguy.net/single-post/2017/01/18/2017-Shelby-Cruise-In

Mustang Engine to Firewall Ground Strap

Mustang Engine to Firewall Ground Strap
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com
Engine to Firewall Ground Straps were installed on all Mustangs from the factory. Originals are almost always cracked and brittle from age and heat from under the hood.

We have a complete line of straps, including our new '65-67 Mustang / Shelby version, which features the correct "FDA-14303-A SX FOMOCO" markings. They are all made in the USA! This is a great and correct detail for any Mustang or Shelby. We also have the correct mounting hardware.

Here's the run down:

WG-8A 65-67 Mustang and Shelby Small Block and Big Block V8 with proper part number and stamping
WG-8    65-67 Mustang and Shelby Small Block and Big Block V8 with "replacement" part number and stamping

Mustang Towne Top (Hardtop)

Mustang Towne Top Hardtop
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

One of our first posts here on the Virginia Classic Mustang Blog way back in 2008 was about the unique and rare Mustang Towne Top. This was a hardtop made for the '65-66 Mustang by Dory Development Corporation.

Mustang Towne Top Hardtop
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

We recently ran across some literature about the hardtops that we had never seen.

For more about the the tops, we are re-posting much of the original Blog post from 2008...wow, has it really been that long!!??
Mustang Towne Top Hardtop
www.VirginiaClassicMustang.com

Below is the original post from 2008:

Again, we want to thank our friend, John Murphy for providing the great information and pictures about this Hardtop that was available for the '65-66 Mustangs. It is truly a unique accessory, and John knows more about these tops than anyone. These pictures are of the top installed on his beautiful 1966 Mustang Convertible that we have featured here in our Blog. Also check out the article about this Mustang in the January 2008 edition of Mustang Monthly.

Here's John's story:


Here are more images and information than you will probably need or
want about the Towne Top. Included you will find photos of the mounting
brackets and hardware, an instruction sheet that came with all of the tops,
a short history of these tops and details showing how different areas of the
top mate to the car. This top was made by Dory Development Co. of New York,
the design beginning shortly after the introduction of the Mustang on April
17, 1964. Mr. Moss had already made removable tops for the Corvair
convertible, and as soon as he saw his first Mustang he knew they were going
to be a popular car and wanted to supply a top for this stylish personal
sized car being sold by Ford dealers across the nation. He employed one
salesman who contacted "Ford dealers, upscale garages and trend setting auto
parts suppliers" and urged them to market the Towne Top. I have most of the
sales records for the Towne Tops showing where each was sold. At a retail
price of $289.00 they failed to attract the attention of many buyers, and
at some time the remainder of the inventory was destroyed.

As an interesting note, the Dory Development Corporation was not the
only company who designed and sold "take off" tops for the early Mustangs.
Parrish Plastics manufactured tops as well. You can see a picture of a
Parrish Plastic Company top in "Mustang Does It", a very nice hardbound book
published in 1978 by the Evergreen Press (Ray Miller, author). In 1994,
Jerry Hensley wrote an article for Mustang Monthly showing both types of
tops. The Parrish top used the rear glass from a Mustang coupe while the
Towne Top used a flat glass rear window. Both mounted pretty much the same
way, and both tops are very rare. Parrish also made tops for mid year
Corvettes (1963 - 67). At this time, we know of three of each brand of top
that are in good enough condition to be mounted on a car and used. I have
information locating several other tops but they are at this time either in
storage or "undergoing restoration"

I have driven this car with top attached at speeds in excess of 85 MPH
and can assure you that with fresh weather striping it is as quiet as a
coupe. The car is very tight and solid with the top on and also very quiet.
It is a "two man" job to install or remove, the top weighing about 85 pounds
and also too large for an ordinary sized person to grasp. The Towne Tops
came in either black or tan, and options included a stainless bar making it
look a bit like a Crown Victoria of the mid fifties, and a dome light.
