In all my catalogs, it seems like Virginia Classic Mustang has the best inventory of '64½ parts. I just ordered a fuel line bracket, and VCM was the only catalog that specifically listed the unique '64½ bracket. I've noticed this with several other early-style pieces, especially with the seat belts and carpet. The 2000 VCM catalog cover features a '64½ Skylight Blue convertible that our friend Charles Turner has worked on.

Does anyone else have a favorite supplier of '64½ parts?

Thanks for sharing that. I'm going to look at a 64 1/2 vert in a couple weeks. I'm sure it needs a few parts.

yeah, the 64.5 parts are sometimes hard to find. it's best to start with a car that has all those unique features.

the owner of the sylight blue convertible lives in Greensboro, NC. i guess he has a little of a raport with the owner of VCM.

on the fuel link bracket, make sure you paint the base black like the engine block since this was originally installed before the engine was painted. then, the screw and top bracket are left natural.

those parts are hard to find!!! i had to find one headlight bucket, but when i bought it the guy didnt know it was a special part so i got it cheep. i still need a hood though. maybe ill just turn my 65 hood into a 64 1/2 hood with a bit of welding and grinding.

Virginia Classic Mustang's 2001 cover features the #2 mustang coupe on its cover. You can't beat that for early!
