1964 1/2 - 1966 / Re: Palomino rear seat upholstery

Believe you will find that the inserts often changed color with age due to those being made of different material from the surrounding seat material.

On my monitor those inserts look closer to ivy gold

Guess we need to compare pictures (just for tint and tone) from the production year or within a couple of years to see how much the colors, tint or tones varied in those

I figure as much too. I also wonder if anyone could 'tool up' one of these cases with a hollow shell for a Miata battery or the likes. It might prove as profitable as actually SELLING the battery for somebody who did. I would venture Mustanger's would give a couple hundred without thinking too long for just a dummy-box ;)

Always been surprised that some one hasn't just made one or two on their 3D printer. Not sure how large of printer the local libraries have but getting access to "map" an original battery would seem to be the biggest challenge. Would have tried it a few years back if I had extra time to play with it.  Friend did a small group of the battery shields before they were being reproduced (maybe 20)  btu at that time access to the printers was very limited. I  think he used a government one someplace he had access to  ::)

  Jeff, so that is the original jack handle? I have one like it in my parts bin but have never seen one from a Mustang??? What gives?

As Bob mentioned just one of the styles used that year. One of the reasons I took a picture and included it in the photo set here

Took the opportunity to add some pictures, make them more uniform  and freshen a few things up

Hope this helps

Subject:  1966 6 cyl. Exhaust Manifold "Ramp-Lok" Bolt correct finishes..

What's the correct Original finish for these Exhaust Manifold "Ramp-Lok" Bolts ???!???!?

I see that Allen from AMK is offering the bolts in Phosphate and Oil Finish, but I would swear that he also offered them in a Gold Cadium Plated finsih also a few years ago.

Am I going crazy??  Did he offer both??!?  Were both finishes correct, or was there only one correct finish?!??

Signed,  Confused.

:o)

Thanks,

Tony K.
I can't a test to what finish someone reproduced them in the past. I have only paid attention to the V8 counterpart which used the same style bolt but I have only ever seen them in P/O finish originally.  Maybe someone else has seen different.

Wonder how many offers they had for that battery  ;D :D


Quite a few actually.  Someone down the row with a Mach 1 reportedly paid $2k for an original battery case.
