Scott Drake Straight Black Monte Carlo Bar for 1965-1966 Mustangs.
This premium-quality Monte Carlo bar from Scott Drake was originally developed by Carroll Shelby to stop shock tower flex and maintain proper wheel alignment during hard cornering. This extra support also helps prevent shock tower stress cracks. Copied from the original design, Scott Drake's bars feature a new thicker diameter tube and improved fender brackets. This beautiful reproduction bar features stamped square holes in the top of each fender bracket to allow for the use of lower profile carriage bolts as well as a sleek black finish. For 1965-1966 convertibles, you must remove the factory tubular engine compartment bracing. Since Scott Drake designed this OEM-style reproduction bar to be a direct fit, no other modifications are necessary during install.

Vehicle Fitment Note: If you need extra room for an upgraded air cleaner or distributor, consider a curved Monte Carlo bar instead of this standard straight one.

Looking at the flange on the outside, you can see how this is flat where it's going to mount on top of your shock tower. Where the aftermarket one has a curve to it, isn't going to sit flat without forcing it into place. It's also longer than the Scott Drake pieces again making for a difficult fitment. Taking a closer look, again you can see how the Drake version's flat, versus the bent edge on the reproduction. It also has a proper style hole versus a generic round hole. Taking a closer look at where the bar meets the bracket, see how smoothly and cleanly the Drake versions is, versus how spotty the welding is on the reproduction.
Another really noticeable difference is the weight of the bar itself. The Scott Drake's got a nice heavy weight to it. The standard reproduction is probably half the weight; really, really light. For a part designed to stiffen up your chassis you're definitely going to want a heavier piece up front. The Monte Carlo Bar is an excellent way to stiffen up the front end of your Mustang. It's going to mount to three factory holes on each side or require a fourth hole to be drilled for mounting.
