Budget Minded Improvements For Your Classic Ford
Front Sway Bar Kit
Another great suggestion from the experts at Mustangs Plus is this 1-inch diameter front antisway bar. You'll keep body roll to a minimum with this heavy-duty upgrade. The Grab-A-Trak front sway bar kit comes complete with an American-made front sway bar, plus polyurethane frame bushings and endlink kit. All-metal frame brackets, and endlink hardware are top-quality gold zinc chromate-plated for longer life. Sold as a kit, the '65-'66 part number is 10200. For '67-'70 cars order PN 10202. Big-bodied cars from '71-'73 use PN 10204. The price for any of the kits is only $99.
Smart Valve Stems
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an under-inflated tire is a major cause of traffic accidents. Now Precision Safety Innovations (PSI) announces the availability of Tire Wise Tire Pressure Monitors. There's no need to get on your knees with a tire gauge because the pressure monitors tell at a glance whether or not a tire is properly inflated. Installed onto the tire valve stem in place of the cap they indicate red for a low inflation condition and green when the tire is properly inflated. A set of four costs just $19.95 so they are inexpensive insurance.
Insulate your vehicle interior against unwanted engine and road noise to provide improved audio acoustics and a more comfortable driving environment at the same time. Boom Mat from Design Engineering is an effective solution for interior noise problems and it's easy to install. Used underneath carpeting and behind door panels, no surface preparation is required. Simply trim the mat to the desired size, peel the backing and apply. A six-pack of Boom Mat 12X23-inch pads costs $110.93.
Classic Wood Steering Wheel
Bring a touch of class to your classic Ford interior. Mustangs Unlimited carries this nostalgic classic wood wheel available for any '67-'73 model Cougar and any '65 and up Mustang without tilt steering. We've also seen this wheel installed on Falcons, Fairlanes, and other Fords. Features include an all-walnut rim with a 15-inch diameter and a 4 5/8-inch dish. The wheel has brushed stainless spokes and classic rivets highlighting the handgrip. Year and model specific mounting kits are available. The cost is $134.88. Mustangs Unlimited offers this great steering wheel as well as the whole Grant Products line.
Electronic Fuel Pump
A fuel pump is one of those parts that doesn't get a lot of attention until it fails and leaves you stranded. This is why it's a good idea to replace your tired old pump with a new Power Flow electronic fuel pump from Professional Products. There are two models, but the only one you need to be concerned with is the one for conventional carburetors requiring 4 to 7 psi (PN 10700). Installation couldn't be easier. The Power Flow Electronic Fuel Pump is a simple two-wire connection and is equipped with a plated stamped-steel housing, sturdy mounting tabs and inlet and outlet fittings suitable for 5/16-inch fuel lines. Professional Products Power Flow electronic fuel pump retails for approximately $35 at high-performance retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
