1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Hood and trunk black paint
« on: Today at 10:41:46 AM »
When I bought #1317 in 1977 it's hood and trunk under sides looked like the pictures Jeff posted.
However, there was a metal mesh under the hood which I removed later.
Texas Swede

Anyone care to comment on the matter of some cars having this metal mesh on the underside of the hood? I have seen this on various '67's over the years - most recently on #1595, a factory paint GT500 with 50,000 miles.

I have heard that it was added to help with radio reception, which was very poor on the '67 Shelby's, typically by dealers - others will hopefully know more/better.

Randy, looking at your photos it appears that you (maybe) missing a stamped sheet metal part that goes on the back of the pump and is captured on the stud and sandwiches between the back of the bracket and the correct spacer, see attached image and then look at the left and center images in the second photo of reply #11 on the first page of this thread, also in reply #15 (this page) it is shown captured by the large nut center on the back.

It is recommended that you NOT post/share the Ford VIN on the internet (this or any other forum) only with Howard.

That is only for the C7AA bracket. I know JD knows this but for others ,small letters/numbers =TRW ,large letters/numbers =Ford Thompson. I want to read more about the different alignment Scode67FB says that a C8 marked bracket has compared to the C7 bracket.

(Bob has forgotten more than I'll ever know on these cars!)

Also, for those wanting to match bracket, as Bob has pointed out, to the pump...
Ford Thompson = the Teal-ish metallic blue power steering pumps and
TRW = the Black power steering pumps.

The tag on the back of the pump in the middle line has either a "F" for the Ford Thompson or (IIRC) a "W" for the Black TRW pumps.

Probably no way to know for sure what the purpose of that check was, but if it was payment for services rendered the day before, that is truly macabre.

I agree.  There is a certain darkness associated with it.  Not something I'd want to own.

Woody was a great guy that loved and DROVE his Shelby!

He always was looking to put more miles under him and the car.

Sorry you're not here, but very glad to have meet you.

Stan, thanks for the link.

Does anyone know if there]was there a longer version?  The guys seem to imply that more story/first hand accounts were recorded.

semi-gloss and the same color as the other painted metal interior parts (painted metal dash and door surfaces); charcoal gray metallic or the off-whiteish "Parchment".
