The original Trans-Am 200-S Magnesium wheels are quite rare now and probably too brittle for anything other than Concourse shows. Fortunately there are alternative light weight wheels out there that replicate the 200's look and are far stronger.

    They were dangerous when they were new!! The wheel was weak in the center and cracked all the time Follmer hit the pit wall at Riverside in '69 after the wheel center broke completely out of the outer. Wrote that car off until it was saved MANY years later by Richard Rodeck.

  That was the car Al Unser drove . Notice AL on the tire after Follmer was crossed out. Goodyears were faster back then but PJ so locked in with Firestone that was all he would run. Unser was tight with Goodyear so that's what he ran. (Per the late Don Araki rip)

   The oil pan is a modified Cal Custom "Die Cast" part with welded on "cheeks". Not a Buddy Bar sand casting.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Exterior mirror on 66 GT 350

  IIRC the side mirror became a federal requirement like satin wiper blades for '66. My dad had to pay extra for a side mirror on his '65 GT coupe.

   Keith ,
  Because of the assembly plants noted the cars were Torinos or Cyclones.

     +1 Cory.
    To add a bit , the logo stamping rarely goes below the surface unlike the photos above. The spot welds aren't usually as obvious either.

    Sorry , not a chance.  "At the time" these headers were only made for SAI by Cyclone.

   The set you have pictured above is not consistent with my originals. Too many tack welds in the wrong places. IMHO an early copy. MANY have copied them over the years and the "finger print" for the originals is different.

   Just checked the originals for 6S477 and they are .250 ( 1/4")

  Choke rod and secondary return linkage too. Black oxide is what Holley used. make sure the pump lever is the correct early version. Plating a later version will stick out like a sore thumb. Be sure and not plate the screw , spring and contact pad , they were cad/dull zinc. Restorers tend to use too much gold irridte .

When reaching out to Total Control Products you might ask if Kevin Sittner was involved with the build.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Re: Shelby small block cams. ID?
« on: November 01, 2019, 11:47:52 AM »
  I've never seen a "Shelby" marketed cam marked that way. If they cam in a Shelby box , the HP1 is likely a stock 289 hipo or C3OZ-C cam as that was the entry level solid lifter cam they sold. The other two are likely the hydraulic version of the same cam which Ford sold as the C9OZ-C . Shelby did not grind their own cams. They used Camshaft Machine/Melling and re boxed them. The grinds were limited because of that.
