One of the members posted the link to the eBay add for the Battery Tray Apron Support last week. As soon as I saw it I ordered one and it came today. I was an automotive Tooling Engineer for the last 25 years and this part is a jewel. I cannot talk about the fit at this time but the part is 100% die cut no laser and die formed, no burrs no wrinkles and MADE IN USA. The weld nuts look great. If it fits like it looks this is one everyone will want to order. $30.00 including Priority mail shipping.

If you need one order it.

I could not find the original post to link this so started a new one.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/322185389553?item=322185389553&viewitem=&vxp=mtr

It will be months before I use it will look to see if I can slide it in to see how it fits.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

That's a good price!!!

 

Unlike the original 'looking" battery hold down - (2 j-hooks and a piece of plastic) I see them running $149-$179.

Thanks

Hello Carolina_Mountain_mustangs

 

Is the thread? Can you provide any more information on this piece. The Ford Master Catalog only show 10769 -Bracket Battery Support - Refer to group 10732. When looking through the FMC Master Catalog Illustrations , I could only find the 10769 1966 /67/68/69 Ford Fairlane/Torino. Is this fairly reasonable to say that it could have been a part of the fender apron assembly?

It was probably originally a component to the assembly. Since the weld nuts in the new repo part are what holds the battery tray in it was probably part of the inner fender assembly and not a loose part. It was spot welded to the inner fender and just helps support the weight of the battery. If you do a search on the forum there is one thread with a good picture from under the fender showing the part.

This piece welds to the outside under the battery and had not previously been available. You can still find NOS battery boxes pretty easy.

Ordered one, Thanks!! This part previously was made out of unobtainium. There is a guy here who had to make one from scratch and I thought I was going to have to go that route. But this changes all that. Thanks again!!

And I thought only the decor group side trim was made from unobtainium.

I have meeting with another mold shop on making the window guides and anti rattle clips this week. Hope he is more reasonable.

All,

 

Just got my Battery Tray Apron Support bracket. It is fantastic piece. The fresh sheet metal reminds me of my sheet metal fabrication days. Off to the ceramic coating it goes.

The reinforcement was part of the fender apron. Ford never released a service part or number for this piece on the 71-73 Mustang. Unfortunately when you ordered the service front fender apron section it did not have the reinforcement as it should have. I have a NOS apron and the reinforcement is not on it. Finding good used ones to harvest from Cougars and Mustangs was possible at one time, but nearing the "Unobtainium" level now. Hopefully Jason will hear something from the E-Bay vender soon. Another one of those deals where I saw the auction and was going to order one but the "I'll check on it later" and ..well you know how that goes!

David, I sent samples [ three sets of each ] of the window guides, rattle clips and regulator rollers to one of the major manufactures. They called me inquiring if there was a need and a demand. I sent them assemblies to work with, they are going to make them. They are going to come up with a repair / replacement type roller for the 71-3 window regulators too.

Is this in a timely fashion or quite a while? I was just looking over all my window stuff, going to need some work and parts... Keep us posted.

Don, Hopefully this suggestion is not too late for your contact. There was a regulator roller "Fix" Ford released in the late 70's that our tech's resisted because they were not round. Once they got used to this "New Fangled" thing, they loved them.They were rectangular and fit the roller channel guide a lot better than the round rollers. It involved drilling the factory rivet out and installing the new rectangular threaded roller in the regulator lift arm with the Ford supplied nut. The illustration shows where I have placed one in a D1ZZ-6523288-E window channel bracket which attaches to the door glass.

Once Ford started transitioning to the cable drive window regulators in the late 80's/early 90's the demand for these dropped and were quickly discontinued by Ford. So a lot of folks never knew these existed.

If you think this is a viable option, let me know and I will be glad to send you a "New Fangled" roller for your contact to look at.

There is no time frame - could be months, could be longer.

I am not involved with making the parts. I suggested it a while ago. Now they called for info and samples.

From what I have heard, the battery brace guy makes Torino parts - he is a one man operation.

He makes a hundred or so at a time and then will list / sell them.
