    Looking for some help here. My 66 sport fury convertible has two cables in the back corners running from the frame to the rear quarter panels. Can someone tell me what purpose these serve and where can these be sourced from.

    Tom I rarely see them because the top is always down. :)

    I couldn't even remember their exact location.

    Thanks for the help it’s is what I thought. I wasn’t overly concerned because I only use the car when the top is down. I will see if I can located them if not I do believe the supplier of the top will make them.

    I have dealt with these guys in the past and find them pretty helpful. Will give them a try.
    Thanks
