Product spotlight: GT500 Full length radiator cover

California Pony Cars is known to take the extra step when manufacturing automotive products. The same story continues on with the 2007-09 GT500 Full length one piece radiator cover California Pony Cars picks up where the factory cover stops and covers the area above the headlights, giving you a finished look. This is a direct replacement that installs using the factory hardware for a very simple 20 minute bolt on installation. It also features similar color, grain, and details as the original with correct contour to the core support for a factory fit.  This Mustang GT500 radiator cover panel is made from durable heat resistant material to ensure long product life and gives the engine bay a clean, subtle, and factory OEM look.

California Pony Cars one piece full-length Radiator Cover Panel really cleans up an area that, by factory design, looks like something is missing. We have incorporated clearance holes on our radiator cover that allows for the adjustable hood bumpers to operate in the same stock position. Also included is an optional trim bezel for the CSM# badge that is used on certain specialty models. This bezel allows a small window to be cut into the radiator cover to show off the CSM# badge that is attached to the core support just above the head light and attaches to the window cut out to give a clean finished look. (Due to inconsistencies with the CSM# badge locations, we are unable to pre cut this badge window.)

Since our radiator cover panel replaces the stock piece completely, it will eliminate the hood prop rod mounting point. A set of California Pony Cars (CPC) - NXT Generation Hood Struts is recommended to lift and hold the hood up without a prop rod. (Our panel will also work with all other hood strut kits on the market.) This cover will fit under the stock hood or any aftermarket hood. It will also work with most aftermarket cold air induction (CAI) systems.

Proudly made in the USA with a limited lifetime warranty.

Focus Fest 2014

     Over these last few months, we've had the opportunity to meet some of the awesome Focus owners out there in the ST world. Since our development of the product, we meet local ST driver, Jason D, and his custom ST,.who came to us during research and development for our Focus hood strut kit. Since then, the NXT Generation production team and Jason had work tirelessly to perfect fitment and specs on the kit to prepare product for the debut at Focus Fest 2014.

California Pony Cars, The Originator of the T-5 Conversion Kit

Since 1995 California Pony Cars has created a demand for the T-5 conversion by manufacturing a precision-engineered spacer/adapter plate, Trans cross member bar, drive shaft slip yoke, trans mount insulator, shift lever & shift knob and combining it all as one kit.  California Pony Cars continues to sell their kits in today’s market. There have been many companies that have tried to recreate the kit, but none compare to the American quality of CPC. History shows CPC broke the mold, and was the first to create the kit. It is safe to say we can call California Pony Cars the “Originator” of the T-5 kit.
