Really great video.  Very much enjoyed watching it.  Thank you for sharing.

That is interresting.  Everything I have ever seen has called it Lime Gold but I do not have a 1968 MPC. Probably a lot of colors get more than one name I suppose. Learn something new every day.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Tie Rod Ends replacment
« on: January 29, 2023, 09:45:11 AM »
I am doing some work on the steering on my 1968 GT350 with PS and without A/C.  I would like to replace my inner and outer tie rods and the adjustment sleeve while I am at it.  NPD sells concours replacements for 65-66 but apparently not 67 and above.

I looked at WCCC and they have repros (although they are currently out of stock on the inners), does anyone have experience with theirs and can tell me how accurate they are?

Any suggestions on where to get the best repros or better yet nice rebuilt originals?

Thank you,

Corey

Paul,

Yes that is still my cell.  Would love to see the pictures.

It's funny you mention this.  My wife at first rejected the convertible because of the safety aspect.  But we researched it and ultimately she agreed.  I did not specifically go out looking for a convertible, but one popped up in our search that we got for a song.  I can not believe how fortunate we were to find this one.  It is a one owner car that looks and runs great, but has a very interesting story which is why we got it cheap.  Seems no one else was interested because of the back story.  I will just say the back story involves several gun shots.  Car was not occupied at the time so no injuries but there are a few bullet holes here and there.

I love that!  My wife would not allow me to get her a classic Mustang because they do not have air bags and all the safety features.  But my daughter is very excited to go to Cars and Coffee with me in the spring.  Not sure how long that will last but I will take what I can get.

We just bought my 16 year old her first Mustang.  45 years ago I bought my first Mustang and it started my love.  From my daughter's reaction she has been bitten by the bug.

That is awesome Steve.  I would love to do the same but they salted my neighborhood roads so heavy it looks like it snowed so am afraid I am done for the season.

I did my best to take pictures from underneath.  Hope it helps.

Both are available as reproductions. The repros can have quality issues, so be sure to test them with a vacuum pump before installing them. That way they can be returned and exchanged if they fail.

This is so correct.  I purchased a new reproduction and it would not hold a vacuum.  I ended up going to EBay and bought an original and it has worked perfectly for me.

Awesome photo.  Thank you for sharing.

Thank you all for the very helpful comments and illustrations.  I was able to source some originals from West Coast Classic Cougars.  I also purchased the set off NPT so I have the square pads as well.

This forum is awesome.  I have been doing a rolling restoration on my car for 8 years now trying to make my car as original and complete as I possibly can.  It is amazing to me that after 8 years I am still learning new fine details.  It just makes me wonder what else I have missed?

What are those square rubber pads for?  Would they be used on a Shelby or just a Mustang?

Are the set NPD sells very good?  The CJ Pony Parts ones are clearly just pieces of coolant hose so just wondering if NPDs are the same.
