1965 Jack Pic and info
« on: February 24, 2020, 01:14:01 PM »
Now that I've got my proper battery cable clamps for my bungee to secure the jack (thanks to Jim!), I need to determine which jack is correct for a 1965. Also is the jack the same as a 1966?

Thanks!

The same style was used for 65-66, which is the flip top.  Marcus has a nice reference guide on his website, anghelrestorations.com

Marcus's excellent article doesn't cover the comparison of the typical SJ style jack compared to the typical Dearborn Metuchen style jack.

And while we're at it..... Did all the cars have the jacks in the trunk? Or did the early cars have the jack inside of the rear mounted spare as the battery would be in the way of the rear mounted jack

Jack is not in the way when mounted as typical on a rear battery car.

I know this is an older thread, but did any of the plants/manufacturers of the early, longer flip top 64.5-65 jacks have coarse threads?

The 65/66 jacks were all one length . The was not one shorter or longer then the other used in Mustangs/Shelby's those years. With that said I have seen fine thread and course threads but not longer and shorter in 65/66 jacks.

So there I was today inspecting the rear trunk of a very early car that is totally original (before #25)... and wouldn’t you know it... no jack, no clamps, no rivets, nothing in front of the battery! The saga continues

+1 Correct for very early car but should still have a jack and handle and, if Cragars, the special wrench.

No jack, no bungee, no clamps and originally steel wheels? Cragars now. Perhaps the jack and wrench were Inside the spare wheel? Aye!

I don't think they were shipped inside the spare tire although a good guess. I have seen them bundled and loose in the trunk for early cars. Most likely that is why the evolution to simple clip and bungee in the trunk. Just my opinion.
