Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Reproduction wrench or crank, for manually closing the factory installed sunroof installed on any 1967-73 Mercury Cougar. Sunroofs, technically moonroofs, were originally installed by ASC or American Sunroof Corporation. Hertz 1968 XR7-G cars all came with factory sunroofs, as did the Hertz rental 1969-70 Cougar Eliminators. ASC also installed sunroofs in Ford Thunderbird, Lincoln MK III.
ASC used Golde mechanical parts from Germany. Golde was a manufacturer of sliding canvas and metal roofs on 1950s-1960s BMWs, Porsche 356s and Volkswagen Type 1 (Beetle), Type 14 (Karmann Ghia).
We will seldom have an original wrench in stock. We have provided the dimensions of the "L" shaped wrench. The key information is that they use metric threads, which are 5mm-8. The rod is approximately 5/16 inches thick. The long short side is just over 1-11/16 inches (of which 5/16 inches is necked down and threaded), and the long side measures a bit more than 3-1/4 inches.
