We promised ourselves that we would not mention Christmas until December, we are one day early but we couldn’t wait with these. It gets to this time of year where we have the spouses of Mustang owners call us for ideas. As you can imagine that is seriously difficult thing to answer, but we think we may have a couple of little ideas that are around the £6 – £15 mark!
We have over the years had some requests for books, manuals and diagrams on the Mustangs but we have never stocked them for a few simple reasons. There are many people who sell Mustang related books, and price is always the issue, obviously the buying power of the big online traders could make us uncompetitive on a few items by comparison. There is also the vast number of different picture guides, restoration books, hints and tips books, in fact we have seen pretty much all of them. At the SEMA show this year we saw a few things that had caught our eye. These manuals being one of them, they are aimed at a slightly different market to the usual market type. The facts and wiring diagrams are aimed at the DIY enthusiast yes, but also at the collectors too, the manuals are full of facts and figures for each year of Mustang specifically. They would look great in a nice binder for reference purposes. The wiring diagrams are by Scott Drake who lead the way with their products and these wire diagrams will not disappoint. So we now stock a limited number of these and so far I have sold a few before I had the chance to post them on the website or the blog. They were seen by customers in the office stacked on the desk. We think these would make excellent Christmas gifts for that Mustang enthusiast who wants something a little different.
We also have a dedicated “Boss” facts manual, a nice pictorial Rare Finds book and the ultimate VIN number guide to all the little plates found on the early Mustangs and Cougars called “Early Mustang & Cougar Tag Book (1965 – 1973 models)” If you wanted to know what options, where and when your car or its parts were manufactured then this is the benchmark to beat. Give us a call for our availability on these guides.
