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.
