1976-93Mustang MVMA Loaded

Society Staff Has Completed the Uploads of 1979-1993 MVMA Specification Sheets

by No Limits Staff

The Automobile Manufacturers Association was a trade group of the major automobile manufacturers which operated under various names in the United States from 1911 to 1999.

Part of the requirement of membership was that the manufacturers were to submit a fact sheet called "AMA Specifications" and later "MVMA Specifications" on each make and model car. These sheets are 10 - 50+ pages in length and provide every significant specification on the model. They were completed by the engineering departments first-hand and the manufacturers were required to update these during the year if changes were made.

These AMA spec sheets can be found in the Technical Specifications Area (Section 10.5) - by Brand on our web site. All are in PDF format and can be downloaded.

1922 INDY 500: Two Boys, a Train and the Making of a Race Fan

A Stephen Cox blog - Presented by McGunegill Engine Performance 

Here's a short story to help you enjoy this year's 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500. 

In the spring of 1922, Alton Hartley was a college student at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He and a friend decided they wanted to attend the 10th International 500 Mile Sweepstakes, as the race was then known, on Tuesday, May 30th. 

Having no car, Hartley and his friend needed a cheap method of transportation for the 65-mile southbound trip to Indianapolis and the local freight train beckoned. . .

1960 Dodge Matador Long Ram D-500

Have it your way - Chris Rodriguez's 1960 Dodge Matador D-500 w/413

by Society Staff

Spotting a 1960 Dodge Matador D-500 was cool enough. But when we saw that mighty 413 cross ram engine in place of the 383 - we had to know more. This car is a true survivor and an example of what you could order in 1960 - if you knew the right people.

We know that Dodge offered the 1960 D-500 in the "standard size" line with a cross ram inducted  330 HP 383 CID V-8 but Chris's Dodge has the 375 HP/413 cross ram from the Chrysler 300F series. How it got there is how one could buy a car back in the day.

UPI's 1964-1/2 TO 1966 Ford Mustang Outside Mirrors With LED Turn Signal
1964 -66 Mustanf LED Mirrors

LONG BEACH, Calif. - The United Pacific Industries 1964-1/2 to 1966 Ford Mustang Outside Mirror with LED Turn Signal is now in stock and available for purchase. The company unveiled the outside mirror at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas in November where it received the prestigious Global Media Award. Global Media Awards are selected by renowned journalists who choose which products would most appeal to their home markets.
The exterior mirror is available both with and without the LED turn signal, but the LED turn signal does allow for greater safety when changing lanes. Featuring red LED lights on the mirror itself, the outside mirror fits both sides of the vehicle in the original mirror mounts with the passenger side available with a convex mirror for wider viewing area. Included with the lights are a mounting pad and screws. Driver side and passenger side mirrors are sold separately, allowing customers to choose between options. Mirror arms and heads are chrome die cast
 "At United Pacific Industries, we created LED tail lights for the 1964-1/2 to 1966 Ford Mustang, so we wanted to bring our customers another unique modern touch to customize their classic cars with upgraded technology of turn signals incorporated into the side mirrors," said Jai Baek, marketing and creative director for United Pacific Industries. "These outside mirrors provide a contemporary touch while maintaining the classic '60s Mustang styling. We're proud it was selected as a Global Media Award-winning product at the SEMA Show, and we are confident it will become a popular product with classic Mustang owners as well."
The left hand LED Turn Signal Mirror is part number 110174. Right hand mirrors are available in two options: part 110175 is for the Convex Mirror without the LED Turn Signal and part 110176 is for the Convex Mirror with LED Turn Signal.
