Appeals / Re: Can anyone identify this t pan?
« on: October 06, 2020, 10:49:00 PM »
Thats a Holman Moody pan for an FE in a half frame Fairlane/Torino/Cyclone. Made to fit the narrowed Galaxie front frame stub used in Grand National. It's actually shallower than a stock FE pan, for ground clearance. They were used from 1967 until they went to dry sump (in 1970 if I'm not mistaken).

1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: Factory Rear Sway Bar Kit
« on: August 03, 2020, 10:49:18 PM »
After reading some of the replies, it made me think I may have misread (and misinterpreted) what was on the Shelby American invoice to Dale Wood (and remembering that occasionally folks have referred to the override and underride traction bars as stabilizer bars), I went back and dug into my books again.

 I found the part numbers for the override traction bar kit (S1MS-18127-A for the complete kit) and S2MS-18127-A and S2MS-18128-A for right and left side underrides (respectively), so this (along with the fact that the base part number for a front sway bar being '5482' indicated (to me anyhow) that the part number I have on the invoice to Dale Wood is indeed for a rear sway bar. Unfortunately, from the 1966 and 1967 Group II Mustang Bills of Material don't show a rear sway (stabilizer) bar in the listings (of course, they could also just be the material lists to build a base version of the Group II cars for those years). However, in the course of digging through my books, I found that the bar is supposed to be 1/2" in diameter (Rick Kopec's article in The Shelby American #44 and the 2011 Registry both mention a 1/2" bar was available as an option for the Group II cars). I also found a copy of Shelby American Race Assistance Technical Service Bulletin #1 (dated October 10, 1966) which gives a verbal description of the S1MK-5483-A Rear Stabilizer Bar Kit (described as being permitted on Group II cars under FIA rules). These and the aforementioned invoice with the part number are all I have to go on so far- but not a single photograph,

Interestingly, Earl's photos and Dave's description of the DOZX bar made me remember I have a nearly identical bar, except for being 1/2", out on my barn. This bar even has the same tab with three holes and the same type end links (Heim jointed on the top and rubber bushings on the bottom). If I can't find the specs or photos of the S1MK bar, I may end up going with it instead.

Thanks,
Dave

If that word on the side of the red '61-ish Ford Galaxie is suppose to be "Incredible, then it's spelled wrong ???

I thought so too, but the history posted with the car indicated the original sign painter (in 1961) did it on purpose- it's the old English spelling.

Phillip- I'm sorry I missed you, didn't spend much time at my space, missed a few others that were there as well. I'm just going to have to make a run up your way soon and have a look at your XR-7G...

Glad you guys enjoyed the photos, I haven't taken many there in the last few years, but I had a little more time this go around. Thanks!

1965 GT350/R-Model / Factory Rear Sway Bar Kit
« on: August 02, 2020, 05:39:44 PM »
Got a question about what appears to be a really obscure factory part; does anyone KNOW what the S1MK-5483-K Rear Stabilizer Bar Kit actually looks like (better yet, does anyone have any pictures of a real one, either installed or laying on the garage floor)? I have a factory invoice that shows two of these sway bar kits being sold to Dale Wood in August 1966. I want to build one for my 1966 Mustang A-Sedan race car that is currently in the middle of a long term refurbishment, and I'd like to put it back to more of a late 60s configuration rather than using a lot of contemporary stuff.

Thanks,
Dave

Southeastern Virginia Region SAAC / Ford Carlisle 2020
« on: August 02, 2020, 02:16:22 PM »
A number of us from Virginia made the annual trek to Ford Carlisle (albeit a couple of months late....). The number of vendors was down some, but the event was still very well attended, lots of people in the swap area (particularly Friday) and the show area was packed on Saturday. Not a huge number of early Shelbys, but still a number of them (including Jim Walsh's green 66, and Bill Collins inventory in the swap area, as well as a later blue Tiger). Ran into a bunch of the Shelby guys there too. See the below link to my photos:

GT350 fall ? ?

That's Kevin Mellema with 5S152. Currently owned by Nolan Beck, was the infamous zebra striped GT350 on the cover of the Shelby American and appeared at Pocono in 1989. My guess is that photo was taken in the early to mid 80s. Maybe Nolan or Paul Gibbons will chime in.

I didn't have my Shelby out this past weekend, but I took a ride with Earl Morris in SFM6S2301 from Richmond up to Broadway VA via Rt 33. Nice drive over the Blue Ridge mountains into the Shenandoah Valley , a little damp (not the first time that car has been wet, won't be the last time...). See the below link to my photos:

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: How many on this site have a red Hertz?
« on: February 16, 2020, 04:56:40 PM »
Red 66s that were at last LASAAC show at SA in Gardena 2019. 834 - non Hertz and factory stripes & 846 - Hertz no mention of stripes in registry. 846 and 843 were both delivered to LAX Hertz from HiPerf Motors on the same day. I've always wondered if the LAX Hertz cars actually went to HiPerf to be delivered or were just driven around the corner from 6501 Imperial.
I have heard that none of the red Hs got LeMans stripes from the factory. Howard could probably clear that up. They do however look correct with the stripes and certainly stop all the questions of why didn't you put the stripes back on when you repainted? Your explanations of it never had them would certainly be called BS by 99% of the automotive world.

Sent you a PM, got a question about 846.

Thanks,
Dave

The Asphalt Angels of Richmond VA held their 58th annual custom car show that Meadow Event Park this past weekend, lots of cool stuff (as usual, fairly heavy on GM, light on Ford products), but there were still a good number of really neat cars, my favorite was a tossup between a 1966 Galaxie 7 Liter (equipped with a 427 SOHC 1-4V motor) and a restored Lyndwood Engineering dragster with a blown early Chrysler Hemi. See the below link for my photos.

When you guys said something about Mustang II, I recalled reading about a Cobra II press day at Ontario that a bunch of Shelby guys were at. Found the article on page 50 of the Aug/ Sept 1976 Marque, with a photo of CSX 2602 at the head of a line up of Cobras and Shelbys (May 5, 1976). But on the same page,  there is an article about an open track at Willow Springs (May 22-23 1976), no mention of a Daytona coupe,  but the accompanying photo has the same garages/ hangars as the ones in Rich's photo. So the plot thickens....
