    Description

    Must have for 69-70 convertible owners or anyone else who wishes to tighten up the notoriously weak front inner structure of the 67-70 Cougar / Mustang. All three of these easy to install upgrades are outlined in the BOSS 302 Chassis Modification book that is NOT included in this package. After you install this kit you will wonder how you could have possibly lived this long without it. Even if you already have the one piece export brace, the chances are it is the old ill fitting off-shore reproduction we see so many of. Look close at the pictures below, this unit closely resembles a NOS original brace in every way. This is a good gift idea as it is easy to install and will fit on any 67-70 Mustang or Cougar no matter what model or engine.

    Look closely at how deep the ridges are on this new high quality brace. 90% of all export braces you see are junk as they do not fit right, look right or provide the rigidity of the originals. This is a very good quality part. The BOSS Chassis manual refers to the export brace as the Export-Type Spring Tower to Dash Brace on page 7.

    You can keep your original unmodifed cross member or return it to us for a core refund. No rusted, dented cores will be excepted for credit. If you need original mounting bolts we have good used ones available.

    The shock tower reinforcement plates require welding but are not hard to install and are not easily seen once they have been installed and painted black. Very important upgrade for those that do not have the reinforcement plates on the engine side of the shock towers.

    Purchased this kit. Everything fits the car. Export brace is of good quality. The sheet metal braces also fit will. I probably won't use those. I don't plan on racing they can be added later. The export brace is needed for your car. Highly recommend!

    Export brace for perfect instant change to the engine bay looks and strength. I do recommend installing the brace followed by the engine cross member parts fully welded and ready to bolt in. Last the shock towers brace it should stay nice and squared ready for the reinstall of the remaining components.

    Question
    desertdave Asked:

    Is this export brace made by Scott Drake?

    November 13, 2023 4:53 PM
    Answer
    WCCC Admin Answered:

    This is the same export brace we sell separately (https://secure.cougarpartscatalog.com/93/11439/export-brace-black-premium-repro-1967-1968-1969-1970-mercury-cougar-ford-mustang-shelby.html). We currently only sell export braces from Scott Drake, as we have found the ones from other manufacturers to be of lesser quality.

    Why am I being warned about potential exposure to chemicals in motor vehicle parts?


    • Some chemicals in motor vehicle parts are on the Proposition 65 list because they can cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
    • When purchasing USED or NOS items, we do not know if listed chemicals are present in these products.
    • This product is known to contain the following listed chemicals:
