Extra tip!  Your car probably small bearing spindle, Shelby told dealer "not" to put the wider tires on small bearing because of bearing failure.
Hense the F60x15 were part of the HD suspension upgrade to prevent that around end of May beginning of April for the production run change.

your v.i.n. in The Registry will show you what tires!  my original car 480448 Jan 22 and my beater 480627 Jan 30 both are F70x15 blackwall tires from the factory.

All 1969-70 Shelbys were built in the 1969 Model year and should have ignition switch on dash (not steering column like 1970 models)!
