I plan to work on this project, but I don't have a date yet.

Here is the one in my car, 5S275. Original clips and bungee cord. I restored the clips and
dipped them.

Thanks guys. One observation I have made is that the original clips have slightly thinner metal
than the repos I have seen.

Two handles if you have Cragers and the jack are held down by the bungee cord.
I don't dare to stretch the original more than 50 year old bungee cord and taking the
risk to destroy it.

The Ford lug wrench slides into the base of the jack .It is illustrated although not well in the jacking instruction sticker. Disregard the way the bungee is wrapped . The picture is to show how the lug wrench fits into the jack. The Crager lug wrench is ether loose of held done by the bungee. See pictures

Looka like these clamps have been unavailable for quite some time. Can someone provide some accurate dimensions so that I can fabricate my own? I'd be glad to make a few  extras once I get them figured out. Would it be sacrilege to make them from stainless strap and media blast them to simulate the original zinc finish?

I've made some.  It's a rather tedious job.  Requires finding flat stock and shearing strips to the proper width, then figuring out the required total length of each bracket, then use a bending fixture to make the correct size "hoop", clamping together to drill the holes at the same time so that they'll match up when compressed to apply the pop rivet, then dipping the "hoop" portion in black "Plasti-Dip" or similar black rubber coating. Approximate dimensions of original brackets: .056" thick steel; 1.7" overall length; .625" width; .625 length of top flat portion; 3/16" dia. holes drilled approx. .325 from ends of flat portions. If you're not a masochist, buy 'em from Jim  or Brant. :)

That's good info. I might give it a try just for the satisfaction of doing it myself. Thanks.
