Griggs Racing is taking Mustang handling to new heights, generating more than 1.5Gs of cornering force with its new GR40 S197 models. Now Griggs Racing is offering the same level of handling improvement for the popular ’64-’70 models. By increasing chassis rigidity, engineering optimum suspension geometry and employing Griggs’ race-proven TorqueArm rear suspension, early Mustang owners can now run past the big dogs at open track days and vintage race events while improving ride quality. Two complete GR-350 kits are available, one for ’64-’66 models and the other for ’67-’70 models. These kits are also available as separate front and rear kits, and as individual components.
The GR350 front end kit (shown here) features a tubular K-member and mini-towers that allows the optional removal of spring towers for more room in the engine compartment, fabricated upper and lower control arms, power rack and pinion steering, coil-over shocks and late-model spindles that accept several brake options. A race-style splined and gun-drilled front anti-roll bar with billet arms enables fine chassis tuning. Wheel hubs and all related hardware are included. The standard K-member accepts 302/351-style motors, but for those wanting more modern power, Griggs Racing offers a GR 350 K-member that swaps-in Ford Modular engines, and for the irreverent, LSX power plants! You can also choose from options such as adjustable or fixed lower a-arms, depending on your individual application.

Buffs are all about simplicity and versatility—one garment that serves many uses. A Buff can be worn as a hat, neck gaiter, balaclava, bandana, scarf, hair band, helmet liner, headband, pirate-style cap or as a sun, wind or dust screen, and fits very well under any helmet. All Buff models are made from either Cool Max or microfiber fabric to keep you warm and protected in the winter on cold rides and to wick sweat and offer a breathable, next-to-skin feel for warmer months.
Buff has winter models that combine PolarTec fleece, Windstopper, and microfiber fabric for extreme protection. All Buff models incorporate Polygiene active odor control that naturally releases non-toxic silver ions to break down odor-causing bacteria.
