I have a socket that has "Mustang" on the side. I'll post a photo later just wanted to know if this was/is a brand name. My dad was a Ford Service Manager for years and this was in his tool box. I always thought it was a Ford service tool but it looks like a regular socket.

You need to go to a Lowes home improvement store and buy as Kobalt brand tool box. They're a nice Ford dark blue!

Ford DID offer special tools in the past - with the 8N tractors in the late 40's and with Model T's. I have a special pair of Ford script pliers. One handle end is shaped like a screwdriver.

Yeah, I have a whole wrench set and "most" of a socket set (cracked 3/4 socket) of the Mustang brand tools. They were the high end of tools in the 70's My dad bought my set fresh out of college and wanted tools that would last. He remembers the wrench set costing 40.00 back then. I don't think they are around any more.

Retired from the aircraft industry after forty years and I used to have what we called a Ford wrench in my tool box and so did most mechanics. It was like a small pipe wrench except the jaws were smooth. Came in handy in a pinch for larger "B" nuts used on fuel and hydraulic lines. Haven't used mine in years though.

This is why, when you hear of somebody getting married "soon," you think to yourself "gee, must not really be committed!". When exactly is "soon?"
