Great right up Cory.

I have observed a couple of 66s with a mixed set.

6S2020 has original "survivor" pitman arm and has the original "survivor" yellow paint on it.

Have mentioned it before in other posts(maybe even a photo) on here only to be poo poo'd by the "experts"

I have lots of details from 6S2020 a car that sat in a dry long beach workshop and did not move for 36yrs 76-12

I gave up sharing these details on here long ago.........

    For me it is all about the 1/4 window. From the moment I saw the window in '66 I knew I had to have one.

      Randy, hit the nail on the head. The 1/4 windows, are the major focal point, of the 66's.

      So much so, I remember, several friends with '65's, went right over to Shelby's store, in El Segundo, bought
      the 1/4 window kits and installed them in their 65's.

      One of those 65's, lived in Dave Dralles (rip) shop, for a long time and I bet Randy, knows about it.


Got a chuckle from this. Reminds me of the '63 Corvette owners that removed the split window because they preferred the "clean look" and visibility improvement of the '64 rear window. Flavor of the month. I'll bet there are not too many '65s with the 1/4 windows still around today?

One came up for sale on BaT today

Good find 2112! I recall seeing this car listed for sale on Hemmings a few years ago. According to the notes on one of the accompanying BAT photos a previous owner replaced the louvers with plexi quarter windows to improve visibility "so he could see better when he was racing". Function over form? Interesting that "R" Models, that were built for racing, were completely blocked off.
The quickest lightest option.    8) ;D

Well, I should have known some idiot here would justify kneeling or not respecting the colors. No one is responsible for the the past. However, 57 trillion tax payer dollars later it's worse. It cured nothing and destroyed the family construct. I owe no man anything. Nor does the national piggy bank.  558,000 Americans died in the name of equality and freedom.
Most of us treat people based on their actions, not their skin color. That includes the police who who make up 40% of the agencies nationally and as much as 75% in some cities. 
The new invaders aren't here to work hard and make their way like immigrants of they past. They are here for benefits and special rights.  Of course if you're a white male in America you're the target.
Cowards kneel and burn flags. I am sure we have several here who burnt flags and protested and refused to serve this country and think so-called activism and virtue signalling makes them just.
 You want to spit in the face of those who have gave all and offered all then you can go straight to hell and remove yourself from this nation.
Disrespecting the the flag is NOT the way you deal with your misperceptions of so-called inequality.

Same here in OZ

Maybe each member should start a thread with the dealer info for their car.  I have thought about it in the past, but never did.  A period picture of the dealership, business cards, license plate frames etc.

Like  :). ^^^^^
