DESCRIPTION

EXPORT BRACE, Late Style, black, repro, imported, Late style brace has the firewall mounting holes in two groups, Groups measure 1 29/32 and 4 3/8 between groups, This reproduction has the reinforcing contours as deep and crisp as the original Ford brace with thicker steel than the other imported versions, The one piece export brace replaces the original two piece braces and exponentially increases the rigidity between the shock towers and cowl area, Originally designed for export cars where the roads tended to be more rough than US roads and the extra stiffness helped to keep shock tower flex to a minimum, The brace keeps the shock towers from collapsing inward and keeps camber adjustments more consistent, When you install this bar you may notice that the shock tower bolt holes do not line up, This is due to the shock tower flexing inward, We suggest you install the cowl bolts loose and then fit the shock tower bolts, It may be necessary to spread the shock towers outward to fit the brace and return the towers to their original designed position, Make sure to check your front end alignment after installation

EXPORT BRACE

This is a well built, and sturdy export brace. It fit well on my 65 fastback. It was a little more expensive than I was expecting, but in this case, money buys quality.

The holes in the brace at the cowl area were just a little off, less than a 16th of an inch. A small tweak with a die grinder took care of it and the brace dropped right on the cowl and shock towers. Nice and heavy too.

The brace fit well and was high quality. The export brace made an incredible difference in the front end stability when compared to the original, individual cowl-to-shock tower braces that the car came with.

Very accurate copy of the original and much thicker steel that the original separate braces. My 68 Cougar handles corners much better now and I'm glad I installed it. Installation was pretty simple, however I had to spread my shock towers out with a porta power to get it to fit. This is not due to the brace, but due to front end damage and flexing over time one shock tower moved out of place. Shipping time was fast and shipping cost was very reasonable.
