American Racing Shelby Cobra SL
Introducing the American Racing VN407 Shelby Cobra SL. It is available in 17-, 18- and 20-inch sizes in either Full Polish, Mag Gray Center, or Hot Rod Black Center. The two-piece design uses a cast aluminum center welded to a forged aluminum outer barrel so it can be built in custom widths and backspacings. In fact, the wheel can be built in eighth-inch backspace increments to get that perfect fit. This is important on trucks that have front suspension and brake modifications as well as swapped rear axles. The wheels can be custom built so that spacers/adaptors are not needed. The VN407 can be drilled in the popular F-100 bolt patterns and accepts an option tri bar spinner cap. Check out the full line of American Racing wheels at www.americanracing.com.

All New OE Style Dentside Cab Mounts by AMD
Auto Metal Direct is known for its premium muscle car and classic truck restoration parts. From gas tanks and sending units to glass replacements and body panels, the company’s latest release is aimed at the Dentside Ford truck. AMD has completed development and now offers OE replacement cab mounts for your ’65-’79 Ford truck. These new premium versions will save you hours of time in fit and finish over anything else available.
These two-piece design cab mounts are made just like the originals and are correct where applicable for the parking brake cable indentation. There are universal options available, but they do not offer the same metal thickness like original and aren’t exactly correct, especially for the early ’65-’66 trucks. AMD focused on being able to offer the best quality possible.
After extensive testing with restoration shops, all the body techs agreed these are far superior to anything else available. AMD even went as far as to offer the correct access plate as well, a part often lost, damaged or rusted out. Known for top quality OE style sheetmetal and restoration products, AMD continues to support Ford truck enthusiasts and restoration professionals by helping you save time and labor with premium quality reproduction parts.
Stamped from high quality OE-gauge steel on AMD’s exclusive new tools, each cab mount features correct as original shape, size, bends, curves and holes. Like all AMD parts, these items arrive EDP-coated to help protect against rust and corrosion prior to installation. These OE quality components from AMD are the perfect touch to your restoration.
