"I just got this rally pack for my 65 fastback , I will be painting it . Red will not go with my interior, it is the 65 blue and white pony interior. The steering column is white , what color should I paint this rally pack ? White , blue or black , and , what is the best way to strip the paint from this unit without doing any damage to the guts of it ?"

I would say the only correct/safe way to strip the paint would be to totally dissassemble it.

I have seen them in blue also. It should be painted to match the dash pad I believe. Mike (Kcode) can confirm this.

O.K. , so this one being a low profile rally pack , it should be color matched to the steering column , since mine is white it should be painted white. Is this a correct assumption on my part?

Sounds right to me, John. Yours is also the later 270 degree tach sweep.

MM's was black, but so is the interior.

.................................................................................
Can I also assume , that because this is an 8000-RPM tach , that it was originaly used for a GT or Hipo K-code model mustangs ? I have the original rally pack for my car and it is the high profile , black finish , chrome eyebrows , 6000-RPM model. Even though the car came with the deluxe pony interior the tach was not color matched. Is it also a safe assumption to say that this style of rally pack ( low profile ) was not available for the 65`s , but , only first became available for the 66 model mustang ?

If you look at the scale on your tach, 0-80 x 100, you'll see it takes up 3/4 of a circle, or 270 degrees. If it were 90 degrees it would only take up 1/4 of a circle.

Thanks Steve

Now that you explain it like that , it makes sense to me , no longer . It is amazing how I can understand some very complicated stuff , and , stuff like this can baffle me at times. I guess I truly am a bone-head

Alex answered the 8k/6k question,Your assumption on the availability is correct,Ford came out with the low profile to clear the gauges (that came in pony and gt for 65) but where standard in 66.Take care,Later.

John,
We also have a Rally Pak in our '65. It is painted white to match the steering column and is the low profile style.

MM's was black because all 65's were originally black. On the 66, same as the column, just took one off my 65 before I sold it. It just resigned dury from it's third car. It's waiting to go on a 4th!. Also, there's a piece missing on the '66 one in the pic. It is a loom holder that runs along the column and attaches to bottom of dash with one trim screw. Believe it's available in repo. Asking price for low profile rally pacs is about 8 to 900! Cheap!! That one's an 8 grand one!

That's one of the accessories that really makes an early Mustang.

I am now getting confused , were the 65 low profile ones also all black or were the low profile 65`s color matched to the column . I thought the they were color matched even in 65 because they were part of the deluxe pony interior. I guess I got this one at a good price then , I paid $550.00 for it . I also have the original 65 high profile 6K rally pack that came with the car. I know it was the wrong one because deluxe pony interior had the low profile ones. I really don,t know if this car actually had one from the factory or dealer , but , I like them and wanted to put one on that was right for the car. I know it is an 8K and not a 6K , but , the price was right so I took it.

Mellowyellow ,

Do you know who carries the loom holder ? I have been looking and asking around for one and nobody seems to know where I can get one. If you know where I can get a repop or an original I would appreciate it if you could pass that info along to me.
