My sweet wife has been making facemasks for the family as well as making them for donation to many different groups. I had her customize mine. Thanks Jan!

Thanks Steve, did Drew restore your carburetor? It looks very correct to me.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Holley 715 opinions and advice

With some downtime I have been looking at and thinking about 6S281. Over the last several years I have managed to accumulate virtually all of the hard to find Shelby/K code items that had gone missing or just rotted over many years. My goal is to restore 281, within reason, to ďas newĒ (as possible) when delivered to Richardson Ford here in Albuquerque Nov 1965. I have become a bit of Realist when it comes to items like double / single crimped brake hoses, I have decided to use Ford service replacement double crimped hoses primarily for safety, just seems like common sense at this point. Plus I can always upgrade down the road if desired. That said, I intend to drive this car sparingly, I have no interest in going to concourse level one condition, I will take a run at concourse level two.
All that being said I would like thoughts and opinions concerning my recently acquired date correct carburetor. Drew at air-fuel-spark sounds like the guy to have mechanically and cosmetically restore these carburetors. My plan was to box this unit up and send it to him but I am now having second thoughts, not because I donít trust him, I just donít want to get this wrong. My question is this, should I restore this carburetor mechanically or go all the way into the external cosmetics, color also? I have seen older pictures Of early Shelbyís with carburetors that look exactly like mine does now, please see pictures. I have also seen pictures of nicely restored cars with the brighter and darker colored carbs. What to do? Thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.

Karl

Steve, thank you very much for the information on your car. Perhaps my carburetor is more closely match to 6s281 than I realized.

Swap Meet / April 1965 Holley 715
« on: February 17, 2020, 12:37:22 PM »
I have a April 1965 3259 Holley 715 that is absolutely complete and original, it does need to be rebuilt/restored. My intent is to use this on 6S281 but I would be willing to do some trading for a July, August, September unit in better or comparable condition. I can live with the April 65 unit on my early 66 but I am also all about helping others in our hobby improve their cars. PM If you have any thoughts on this. I am not interested in selling this unit out right.
Thanks, Karl

I also found this coil bracket with the miscellaneous parts in 6S281. Does this look correct for my application? I have gone to the time and expense to locate an original date correct in the box FOMOCO coil, I certainly donít want to get the bracket wrong. What say the experts? Thanks again!

Only 65 Shelbys had this hole in the bracket. The car on the picture is 5S114 and picture is from Paris, France
Don't know for sure when the change over happened but probably around June-July 1965.
Also, the hole was needed on cars with the coil placed on the intake like 64 1/2 Mustangs. Ford probably had
left over which was used in 65.

Texas Swede, I have to know great one, how the heck did you know and recognize that particular picture? Impressive!

Thanks guys, great to know. Does anyone have a picture of the correct bolt for an early 66 coil bracket, the one from the bracket to the head?

This is a vintage picture of a early 66 or 65 that I had saved, note the open letter valve covers. This particular car shows the hole in the bracket.

That would be awesome Trent, I was looking back at some pictures I had collected of early 66 and 65 engine compartments. I would very much like to see which one your car has.

« on: February 08, 2020, 02:37:01 PM »
Need a little help from the Shelby gurus out there. Is this the correct coil bracket or 6S281? It was built at Ford in October 1965. All the pictures I have studied show the hole ( approx 5/16Ē ) in the front of the bracket, Iím not sure about the angle on the mounting face that attaches to the right head. Thanks, trying to get all these little details correct. Also, does anyone have an example of the correct bolt used to mount this to the head?
Much appreciated as always, Karl
