1971-3 Mustang 4-Speed Z-Bar - 429CJ - New!!! My Z-bar was worn out, so I have a friend of mine that works for NASA duplicate (exactly) the 429 CJ Z-Bar. She made them out of today's better materials. These Z-Bars are exact in dimensions, but the materials are far superior to the originals. The steel we used is S7 which is rated at 50K PSI and Rockwell hardness 55. The legs have been CNC machined and the tubes were done on a screw machine. We ran the parts out to the Materials Lab and put a load all the way up to 14,672 lbs before the arm began to buckle. There is no way you will ever put that much pressure on the bar, but we wanted to see how strong it really was. If you are interested in a Z-Bar, let me know as I had 15 extra's made up. Members of our 429 website can have one for $85 (my cost), plus shipping. Please don't spread the word about the price, as I have them listed on my ebay store for more. If you need any 71-73 Mustang parts, I am parting out 35 Mustangs (nothing rare), just let me know. My Ebay store is Motorcity Mustang if interested. Mike

I bought one of these from Mike awhile back.
They are everything as described.
Perfect welds and you cannot tell the difference between the factory
and repop.
Very well built and worth the money.
