New 1968 - 1970 Cougar Dual Exhaust Hangers

Post by Scott Fuller » 27 Oct 2016, 17:47

I will soon have available new 1968 - 1970 Cougar dual exhaust hangers. These hangers are made from new tooling to exactly match the originals. All the metal parts are stamped and formed, just like the originals. Nothing laser cut. The rubber is tire sidewall, just like the originals. As you can see in the photos, they are not the same as Mustang hangers. The top of the muffler hangers are considerably different, and the bottom has different hole spacing than Mustang. The rear hangers are Mustang on one side, and a mirror image on the other side. The rivets were made from scratch to exactly match the originals as well as the backing plates.

I should have them available for sale in a few weeks.

Thanks,

Scott Fuller

Looks great! Now, wasn't someone making correct (to my knowledge anyway) hangers at one point? SMS Auto or something like that? I remember speaking with Tom Lawrance about this (and he said he sent some place NOS hangers and never saw them again) and he was surprised that MU was selling correct parts (I believe) at one point (where I got mine).

They look very nice and correct Scott. definitely a nice addition to the Cougar repo inventory of parts. should the p-side rubber hanger have white rubber belting? The original exhaust on my XR7G has white on the P-side muffler hanger. I don't recall if it was white on the 69 original exhaust. I would have to look.

Scott, are the hangars going to have white rubber on the aft side of the forward hangar like the assembly line parts did?

Can't wait to get the hangers and new exhaust for my 69 cj. I want to thank Scott again for the extra effort to get them ready for me for the show.

I've seen hangers with partial white, all white and no white. I believe it depends on where they where cut from on the side wall.

Arild is right. Some had white sidewall and some didn't. I have many original hangers with no white on them, like the ones in the photos I posted. Same is true for Mustang hangers.
