Aluma-Frame Cradle
Featuring exclusive suspension geometry with six inches of travel, Detroit Speed's new Aluma-Frame front suspension system provides improved ride quality and handling for '65-'70 Mustangs. Utilizing a unique cast aluminum cradle, the DSE suspension includes DSE/JRi "Detroit tuned" coil-over shocks, rack-and-pinion, and Speed-LIGN caster/camber adjusters that allow a wide range of adjustability without the need for additional components.

Ultra Pack Tie-Downs
Owners of trailered show and race cars will be glad to hear that Mac's Tie-Downs has reintroduced its popular Ultra Pack. Available in four colors, the Ultra Pack comes with separate axle and ratchet straps that feature specially shaped hardware to allow for tight clearances. Offered in six and eight feet lengths, the Ultra Pack can be ordered with a twisted snap hook, direct hook ratchet, or chain extension. With twice the number of stitches than competitors, the Mac straps have a 10,000 pound capacity rating. A black duffle bag is supplied for storage. For more information, call 800/666-1596 or visit

Modern for Classic
RetroSound's redesigned Model Two radio may be the most advanced stereo ever manufactured for classic vehicles. With several versions to fit '65-'86 Mustangs ('65-'66 pictured), the Model Two is Apple-licensed for full control and charging of the iPhone, iPod, and iPod touch. It's also the only radio for the restoration market that includes built-in Bluetooth. The Model Two's authentic push buttons, faceplates, and knobs mimic the look of original factory radios, yet the unit includes the newest audio technology, including front and rear RCA pre-outs, subwoofer output, and built-in 25 watts x 4 channel power amplifier. The Model Two uses RetroSound's patented InfiniMount adjustable shaft and bracket system to allow installation into virtually any classic vehicle without dash modification.

Factory Tach
The new dash-mounted tachometer from National Parts Depot is an exact reproduction, including authentic fonts and details, of the factory tach offered for '67-'68 Mustangs. Offered in both 6,000 and 8,000 rpm versions, with or without the redline, the tachs retail for $799.95 ('67) or $999.95 ('68). For ‘68s, a reconditioned fuel gauge is included to properly complete the conversion from a non-tach cluster.
