Looks like a hybrid of sorts to me.... The upper coilover mounts look like a fabricated piece and the control arms resemble an early TCI..... But I have no idea

I am just as confused as you. But thanks for the input, if we get enough I might find out who made them. I think they work fine for home made, but I have not driven any other Street Rod that had Mustang II front.

Sorry to be so late with a response.

It looks to me as well to be TCI 'A' arms along with a home built shock mount and adjusting mecanism. If it's solid and the car drives well, leave it be as it does look like a good fab job.

This is my TCI, circa 2001 and 2011 :

Irelands Child, Your TCI looks a lot like the front end I got from Pete and Jakes - the upper eccentric adjuster looks just like mine (except your is polished and pretty). The OP's upper mount is more like the original MII. The control arms look exactly like yours though.

Makes you want to believe that P&J sub their front ends out to TCI. I have to say it that the front end does work nicely once you get the correct rate springs installed and on all 4 corners of the car.

As far as shiny and pretty - the downside is how much time it takes to keep it that way.

Could it be a "cobble job"? With parts from various MFRs? Looks like a good set-up though.
I'm not too hip on slotting a load bearing member as far as that one has been slotted.
Should have added an attachment for the upper control arm, rather than cut a slot in the compression flange of the frame. Unless there is hidden reinforcement for the slots.

One of the nice things about full-fendered - hides a lot. The polished does look really nice!
