Cars have turned up we are rapidly running out of space to store them all, working on them and getting them back to the customers turns into logistical nightmare. Anyway we have got to the point where the Rust In Piece convertible is now on the lift after we got the engine back in.
Working on the underside to get it back together again using as much of the original parts as possible from the front suspension and steering.
We are putting new brake hardware onto the axle as they were completely shot to bits and we will not allow them to be used although some people might try their luck.
We had Lance’s Gulf Stream Aqua ’65 Coupe in for a little blinging under the hood. He wanted to replace the pullies to some nice billet ones. While he was at it he changed his suspension to a nice positive Borgeson steering rack. As we were changing the pullies we fitted a nice sparkly new aluminium radiator to finish the look off. This is very pretty car under the hood now and kept Yogi quiet for a couple of days.
We hope to upload a video soon of the engine running with the new pullies in place. We let you know once it’s on our YouTube channel, click here for the link.
We mentioned that we will have some pictures of the rare German export model Mustang that were known as the “T5”. We have worked on this lovely car before and we said we are always pleased to have her back.
We have had a few questions about the T5 and we have added an “Article” in our menu about it click here. The car we have here is not badged exactly as they were originally on the rear trunk lid. The lettering “Mustang” was removed and was just blank. But as this trunk lid already came with the holes we asked to put the lettering in place.
The badges on the T5 are no longer made and are a rare piece of badging for the Mustang. Why was it called T5? Because it was the internal project code name at the time.
The interior badges are the same, Mustang was removed from pretty much everywhere including the steering wheel and the glove box. Another nice rare piece is the cover up late that just covered the original Mustang logo.
The interior was lovely condition too.
We hope you have been enjoying Adam’s Route 66 posts, we have even learnt some stuff here too. As Adam is away we have had a few customers asking about parts. Please leave us an email for technical questions and we will try to get back to you as soon as we get a chance. You can always still order from the WebShop and Yogette will get them out as soon as she can for you.
