Wanted to Buy / Re: 66 Shelby GT350 Good Driver

Given recent escalating prices and the fact that car has been for sale for many months, I would say guaranteed north of $200K.

Going back to the question in the original post, my answer is a simple NO.

Hopefully many others had a chance to get out with members of their family.  Will try to attach a short video here but not sure if it will exceed the maximum file size allowed or not.

Not sure if you have checked ebay but there are usually at least a few used sets and some singles for sale there. 

Radar Love works for me.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Cleaning 67 GT500 intake

Sounds like the intake might still be on your car.  I've used brake cleaner and a toothbrush for hard to get at places on my intake with the carbs off in past years and had good results. 

Thanks Greek - I checked and the fuel line clamps are similar in shape, but they are smaller. 

Thanks for the reply.  I assumed this would be a Mustang thing - not just Shelby.  My car is a March 66 build.  Maybe random by worker vs a running change in how the cables were fastened?  I have noticed the use of the second half brackets on some of the 66's for sale with chassis pictures.  I have not kept track, but from the pictures I have seen, it appears to me that fewer cars have the 2nd brackets vs just the one on either side.  A minority of cars with these 2nd half brackets might also explain why they are not reproduced. 

PM sent.

I see many 66's with only the cable to floor brackets that are reproduced like the following:   Some 66 cars (like mine) also have a second half clamp with only one screw located about 15-18" further forward on both cables.  Anyone know whether this was a running production change that only later cars got or ?  I have not found anyone reproducing the half bracket although it looks very similar to common cable fasteners that can be found at Home Depot and other hardware and electrical stores. 

Thanks very much for the recommendation !

I just sold my 70 Cougar vert to a guy in Cincinnati.  He is thinking about hiring someone to take it across the border vs waiting for the border to re-open.  I would drive it to Sarnia or Windsor, then hand it over to the broker who would deliver it to the buyer on the US side.  Anyone know of any brokers they would recommend to provide this service that I could in turn recommend to my buyer?  There are many out there to choose from but both of us would feel better with someone that came with a strong recommendation.  Thanks, John

Drew rebuilt and restored the 3360 and 3361 Holleys on my 2 x 4 bbl setup.  Got them back last week and I got them re-installed and dialed in this week.  Drew's work exceeded my expectations!  The carbs are like eye candy and the car has never run better.

When I bought my 66 GT 350 35 years ago, it had spring clamps on the front springs that compressed two of the coils together.  Seemed to work the same as cutting part of the spring off to lower the front, but was obviously reversible.  When I restored the car after purchasing it, I took the spring clamps off and the springs went back to their previous / original height.
