1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Front bumper corner bracket finish

This is what it looks like. This is for 65/66. 67/68 clip would be phosphated.

Really like the 4-speed AC cars.
FYI it is add on A/C which if you were going have a owner modification that would be the one to have. Too late a car to have a 66 style shift knob.

Bob do you know that by looking at the car or by what registry indicates?

I would say within and done before scoop was mounted such that rivets/washers would be natural and not painted.

Would that same scheme be the same for 68?

Which belt goes on top the lap belt or harness?

1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: Another KH steel wheel question
« on: May 18, 2020, 06:44:25 PM »
The 5.5 and 6 inch centers remained the same except how they were attached to the rim. The wheel you have pictured looks different to the 65 style steel rims I have seen.

Concours Talk / Re: dark charcoal metallic paint

As Bob and JD stated its very easy to fill the natural grain in the metal. For the best results I have experienced, the original paint needs to be removed using paint stripper or a soda blast. A DTM black primer needs to be applied, then painted. One coat of primer, 2-3 coats of the PPG paint shown above.
The grain really shows and looks good using this procedure.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 67 GT350 Leaf springs

Jim
I have seen square holed ones on 65-70 cars, although the round holes I find are the most predominate ones on he 65-67 years. I have a set of springs from a 66 car in my shop now, one has round hole bands the other has square holes.

+1 I'm using these springs on a roller chassis. They have square hole clamps.

This is correct for 67 to 70 that I have used on my cars with excellent results. You will need to spray it from a gun, but I think results would be better than what's out there in a spray can.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 1967 Shelby AC Drain Hose / Carpet
« on: May 05, 2020, 05:31:39 PM »
The carpet would lay on top of the hose, there should be no hole in the carpet. There is a eyelete and a screw securing the hose to the floor board of the car.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Steering Wheel Box
« on: April 09, 2020, 04:02:45 PM »
I had a couple of boxes for my 68 GT 500`s restored to Concours condition, Jim at Shelby parts did them. They came back looking real nice but required adjustment.  It was what I thought was a required procedure after a rebuild. Using a very long flat head screw driver I turned the jack screw until the desired play was established. I didn't get carried away with turning the screw, you could tell the difference in the steering wheel as adjustments were made. Didn't seem to be a big deal.

Carb date code 4B5, questions here, I know 4 is year, B is December, not February? I always thought they went as far as 4th week ?
 My 67 lemans carb is 633: Third week of March 66.

Thanks

4B5 is 5th week of November, 1964

Wouldn't B be December?
