Here are pictures of the angle bracket and the cowl for a March built Shelby.

What is size of the bolt and nut and head style that Ford used to mount the export brace to the cowl? What was the finish? Was a washer used behind the nut?

Thanks.

Thanks for these The part that is crude is the L shaped bracket. It could have been made much better. It is a pretty crude piece. When I get back out to the shop I will get pictures.

Thanks. I never would have guessed it was done at San Jose because it is such a hack job typical of Shelby, not what I would think would be typical at Ford.

These questions concern the export mounting bracket at the cowl for March built 66 Shelbys.

My L angle mounting bracket was skip welded to the cowl. Was this the way it was done?
I suppose it was done that way to not warp the cowl.

It was obvious the worker beat the heck out of the cowl before mounting it. I am surprised he didn't damage the cowl. After it was welded it was heavily coated on all four sides and over the face of it with what looks like a brown seam sealer. Then it was painted over.

How was this bracket painted? Spray can, brush or out of a gun?

Thanks.

Yes, the Autolite carb is original to the car. It has a February or March 66 date. I am not near the car today to see the date on the tag.

So I have a 66 Shelby Hertz with automatic built March of 66. It has its original Autolite carb. It does not have the dashpot. Is it supposed to?

Very sad to hear this news. I had many conversations with Jim over the years. He always remembered me even if a few years went by. I will always remember his honesty. He spent more time talking me out of buying parts than selling parts to me.

I still have many of his hand written invoices from the 90's.

This world needs more people like Jim.
