Mustang Wheel Houses 1964-1973
Though you may take it for granted as you are driving, you are constantly putting your Mustang wheels & tires in harm’s way. You may not notice it is happening, but when you are cruising around on gravel-filled backroads or driving through muddy conditions, your Mustang tires are kicking up all kinds of dirt, rocks, and other forms of road debris that could severely impair your car.
Thankfully, your trusty-Mustang wheel houses are in the line of fire, to help minimize damage to your vehicle’s body & sheet metal. Located behind your Mustang fenders, the Mustang wheel houses provide an extra layer of protection for your fenders, as well as your quarter panels, and hood from anything that your wheels might kick up while you are driving.
A wheel requires both an inner and outer Mustang wheel house in order to achieve the utmost protection from hazardous material from the roadway. The Ford Mustang wheel-well’s curved design allows the panel to keep pace with the car’s spinning wheels, and the metal material allows the wheel-house to withstand a beating from both precipitation and various forms of road debris. However, because the Mustang wheel-wells are constantly battling the elements, the metal equipment will be subject to rust and corrosion build-up as a result of over-use. Driving around with rusted-out Mustang wheel houses not only puts your fenders at risk, but also the rest of the car’s lower body as well.
Additionally, if you are unlucky enough to experience a ‘fender-bender’ your Mustang wheel-wells will be one of the most negatively affected areas on your vehicle. Because of their physical location on the car, the Mustang wheel houses are always at a high-risk of damage during a collision. If your original Mustang wheel-wells become damaged beyond repair as a result of an accident, it is time to replace your factory equipment with safer and more secure aftermarket upgrades.
