This is a diagram of the convertible top frame design for a 1966 Mustang. This diagram includes all the bushings, bolts and part numbers for the entire top frame, including the weather stripping.
Recently we completely removed the entire frame from our 1966 Mustang and found that many of the pivot bushings were broken, or missing. We later found out that many of those pieces are no longer sold or manufactured.

After we disassembled the frame we sanded and repainted most of it. Part number 51154 was bent and began to rust so we sanded it and then brought it to a local machine shop to straighten it and stengthen it with a few welds. After repainting the whole frame it looked like new. Now we had to figure out how to get the frame back together with rusted pins and missing pieces.

Name: | Comment: What is the part number for the weather stripping pieces on frame....back in the well....up front on the frame that comes down on window.... and the first rail from the back

Tue Jan 05, 2010 3:49 pmPart number 53986 is weatherstripping that goes on the front windows and across the front bow on the underside of the top. It is long and flexible, but where it attaches over the windows it is reinforced.

Part number 51564 is a smaller separate piece that goes over the windows and connects to the top frame.

Part number 51566 is smaller yet and attaches to the frame right over the rear quarter windows.
