    Used / Wrecking Yard Item - 2-5 Business Days (May delay order)

    For all 1968 Cougar trunks to mount the spare tire. Total length according to the MPC is 9.75 inches, with 4 inches of threads on the end. We have found that the overall length is 8 inches with 3-1/4 inches of threads. Basically the same J- bolt as found on 1967 Mercury Cougars but with the thicker, 1/2-13 threads. As we research more we will post our results here. Would love to get specs on J-bolts from those of you with low mile and very original cars.

    Pros:
    • Original Ford part
    Cons:
    • None
    This part works like it should as it is original. All the Mustang catalogs show all kinds of differing length and thread size bolts but no cross reference for a Cougar. I have the 1968 styled wheels so I wanted to find the proper bolt and fit. Even the Lincoln Mercury MPC shows a longer 9.75" bolt as proper. Even though this is shorter than the size in the MPC, it works just fine!
