Front tie down hooks
« on: July 24, 2021, 07:22:42 PM »
Does anyone know if this type of front tiedown hook will work on a 66? I already obtained the rear ones.  If these work, where are the attachment points?  Thank you for any input that might be provided.

I just bought a pair (within the last half hour from Summit Racing) of the hooks you use but they are for the rear brackets only, or?  Will another pair of the same work for the front end and if so, where would they hook on to?  Thank you for identifying your methodology.

Best,

Those don't look correct, these are what I have used on my 65 thru 68 cars

X2 They fit into the oval shaped hole in the bottom of the frame rails.

The link i posted are for use in the front. If you have the rear tie down brackets ford installed i use the hooks that come with the ratchet straps.

I standarized on these guys, they made me customized straps i needed to hall exotic cars i have to trailer for service and such.

These are claimed to be concourse for first generation Mustangs.

Not quite sure how well the front ones would work.  I did look under 843 and found the oval holes in the front end to accommodate hooks.
