Monte Carlo Bar Straight Black 1965-1966 is rated out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Tjcarbon from Not a simple bolt on project. Repeat this is Not a simple bolt on project. The bar is about 1/4" too long to go in the designated location. It will Not fit without Extreme Massaging of the inner fender. Not wishing to preform "extreme massaging" to my 65 Mustang, I opted to relocate the bar about 6" forward. Of course in order to do this, the starter relay needed to be relocated, as well as the radiator overflow bottle. An additional problem with the bar is that the mounting bracket has a 90 degree angle, but the bar is cut with an ~75 degree angle, this results in the top of the mount not laying flat. This is a rare poor product that Cjpony carries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MyOrange65 from Not a perfect fit This is a nice looking part that is the right width and the holes are almost in the right spots. The issue with it is the brackets on both ends. They are welded at the proper angle to match up with the inner fender but they are bent at 90 degrees which is tighter than the sheet metal is bent.
