|Apparently there are questions regarding what shoe sizes our Cougars take.
My recent experience forced me to find my own shoes because the computers at parts stores all seem to use the same database. My first go at rear shoes resulted in the store giving me 2.25" front shoes. The shoes I took off my 69 were 1.75". The parts stores either did not list rear shoes other than 2.5" or front & rear being the same - 2.25".
I ended up getting online and looking for them myself. Long story short, order shoes for a Mustang.
BTW - 1.75" were only used in 69, in 70 they went to a 2". Supposedly either can be used on 69s without changing the drum.
