Makes me think...

back to the late 70's and my first car. 1975 Pinto wagon. Surely does look like it, though can't say I ever had to use it.

Wonder how many years/cars that was used for?

Don't know exactly....

but methinks 20+ years, at least. Lots to be found in junkyard Fords.

I ended up with one of those too.

Zero interest when I listed it on ebay. I've thought about using on my Falcon build but I don't know how to secure it. How did they store them in the Mustangs?

I don`t know how long this style of lug wrench was supplied with various Fords, but my 69 & 70 Mustangs, 78-80 Fairmonts, and 85 Mustang all had simiar looking wrenchs in the trunk. As for securing it, at least on my 69/70 Mustangs, the spare tire was installed in the trunk "upside down", with the jack fitting inside the backside of the wheel, and the lug wrench layed on top of the wrench handle, which has a hole in it. A threaded rod with a hook at the bottom hooked into a loop on the trunk floor, and went thru the wheel, jack, and wrench handle, with a large stamped steel wig nut holding it all together.

Yup sounds right...

with the little crank up jack collapsed, it all fit inside the back of the wheel and bolted down.

That flip handle on that wrench allowed you to make full revolutions with the jack and not hit the ground.

Same as 71 Pinto and 74 Mustang II

October 2 2017, 11:25 AM 

Both those cars had a small scissor jack that were similar but not identical, the Pinto jack had small jaws to engage a notch in the seam where the floor pan met the rocker sills, and the Mustang II jack had about a 4" wide head on top to sit against the floor. They both had that wrench to serve as lug wrench and jack handle.
