LED Dash Lights
Mustang Project now offers high-brightness LED gauge cluster lamps in the original '65-'68 Mustang color, which was a mixture of blue and green due to the filtering of the yellow incandescent bulbs through blue plastic lenses. Using new technology that allows three LED chips in a single lamp, the Mustang Project LEDs provide an original appearance but much brighter illumination for improved visibility. The LED lamps simply replace the original-style blubs. Priced at $39.95, the kits are available for '65-'66, and '67-'68 Mustangs. They include lamps for the gauges, turn signal indicators, and high-beam. For more information, call 800/631-0507 or visit www.mustangproject.com.
'71-'73 Seat Buttons
National Parts Depot has reproduced the die-cast buttons used on '71-'73 Deluxe, Grande, and Mach 1 seat backs.

Sets include buttons, retainers, and clips for one seat under part numbers 64824-5A (Deluxe and Grande) and 64824-6A (Mach 1).

'13 GT 500 Exhaust
A high-end, high-horsepower car like the '13 Shelby GT 500 deserves a high-end exhaust like Corsa, which now offers a new system for Ford SVT's 662-horsepower supercar. Featuring Corsa's Reflective Sound Cancellation technology, the GT 500 exhaust provides an aggressive sound under acceleration without annoying drone at cruising speeds. The axle-back kit includes a pair of mufflers with Twin Pro Series 4-inch tips in either polished or Diamond Black finish. A crossover pipe is sold separately. Call 800/486-0999 or visit www.corsaperformance.com for more information. You can hear Corsa's GT 500 exhaust system on YouTube by searching for "Corsa '13 Shelby GT 500."
Thoroughbred Manufacturing has released a new steel floorpan for '65-'68 Mustangs. Assembled in the U.S., the pans are spot-welded like the originals and come with the correct braces, brackets, and supports in the factory locations. A dual exhaust option is available using the correct factory brackets. The floorpans are available in eight different part numbers to cover the various body styles and dual exhaust option. Thoroughbred also offers the pan as a one-piece inner rocker replacement with floor, seat riser, seat reinforcements, and frame-to-floor rails.
