    Reproduction BLACK Export Brace for the 1967, 1968, 1969 & 1970 Mercury Cougar or Ford Mustang

    Scott Drake used the original Ford prints to makes these exactly as the originals with heavier gauge steel than the other reproductions we have seen. Unlike the reproductions of the past, these actually fit without the need for modification or the need to jump on the front of the car to install. They are the best braces on the market today by far... Greatly reduces twisting of the chassis. Also strengthens the front end and helps reduce shock tower fatigue and cracking. Also available in Chrome and Satin Chrome Finish. Does not come with hardware.



    Replaces Ford Part # C5ZZ-16A052.



    *TRIVIA* These are called "Export Braces" because all Mustangs and Cougars exported to Europe were required to have them. They were standard issue on all Shelby's and an over the counter item for Cougars and Mustangs not equipped from the factory with them.

    Edges of the metal are too sharp. They should knock them down prior to paint.

    Pros:
    • Stiffens up the chassis.
    Cons:
    • Sharp edges

    Great Fitting Product

    Correctness:
    Slow start as I tried to install one side at a time after removal of two original brackets. As they won't sit down in place over shock tower ends don't install firewall bolts first which I thought would be the simple way to start. Once you juggle the two ends into place and start those three bolts and pin plate at each end, the firewall bolts went easily into holes. Guess no sag in my car as others noted.

    Pros:
    • Everything lined up!
    Cons:
    • Directions for novice would help shorten
    • Ina stall time.

    Nice part. Heavy duty! Be prepared if your 50 year old car is sagging a bit installation is going to be fun. Watch some good videos on how others do it.

    I only gave fit 4 stars because it don't really specify that your standard bolts with the big washers at the fire wall don't work well with these. The big washers don't fit tight against the piece due to hitting the ribs in the brace. Apparently your suppose to use just a plain headed bolt with no washer.

    Pros:
    • Great price for the part!
