Additions and Accessories

In my seemingly never ending quest for "neat stuff" we have came across an accessory that fits the 60's theme of the car.

Rotunda Trim Rings - NOS

A friend of mine came across a set, actually 2 sets, of Ford Rotunda trim rings . The rings are a waffle patterned stainless steel with a narrow vinyl whitewall attached to the front face. Very similar to the old Port-O-Walls from the 50's. Upon seeing them I had to get them. They are now installed and a nice addition to the car. The box is labeled with a 65 part number but the instructions are dated 64. I have never seen these before. And because they are trim rings they are a carry over from the full size Fords because Mustangs used full wheel covers. But they are in the accessory catalog.

Highlander Custom Headrests - NOS

These are a way cool find. They are an aftermarket headrest from 1966 made by Highlander . The sweet part is that these came from a friend of mine and the color is almost a dead on match for my interior. They bolt to the seat back and are adjustable in height. There similar piece to this in the Ford accessory catalog and they a very much alike. The dating comes from the instructions which are dated 1966. Another period perfect add-on!

NORS Taillight Panel - Repro

This is a new reproduction of an origonal 60's aftermarket accessory. It mounts over the standard tailpanel including the taillights. Simple to install and a very unique look. Pure 60's.

Foxcraft Skirts - NOS

And, yes, they did offer skirts as a dealer accessories! Not a popular option then, but they did offer them none the less. They were offered as a FAA ( Ford Authorized Accessory ).

Gill Trim For The Grille - Repro

This piece of aftermarket trim goes over the cast in gills on the grille surround. Factory units are chrome. A cool dress up item. Being repoped in plastic now.

Day/Nite Rear View Mirror - NOS

This factory option replaced the standard mirror and gives you a day/night switch for greater safety

CalCustom 5-tube Grille Insert - NOS

This NOS piece was picked up many years ago. It is a CalCustom 5-tube stainless steel grille insert. It is a straight bolt-in replacement. Clean looking grille straight from the 60's.

Locking Gas Cap - NORS

This is another repop of the dealer unit. It was acquired for a couple of reasons. The primary one being that at some shows, specifically ones that are indoor, they require that the tank cap be locking or taped shut. I opted for the locking solution.

Cruiser Console

This high quality piece from Classic Consoles is a drop in console that gives you the things that were missing from the origonal Mustang. Cup holders and a nice armrest / storage compartment. And it is upholstered to match the interior. It simply lifts out when not needed.

Seat Belt Retractors - NOS

I have the original units from 65 and they are handy to keep the seatbelt from flopping out the door when you unfasten and get out. These are also being reproduced but mine are original.
