1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Export Brace at Cowl Finishes, etc?
« on: January 10, 2021, 02:29:55 PM »
These questions concern the export mounting bracket at the cowl for March built 66 Shelbys.

My L angle mounting bracket was skip welded to the cowl. Was this the way it was done?
I suppose it was done that way to not warp the cowl.

It was obvious the worker beat the heck out of the cowl before mounting it. I am surprised he didn't damage the cowl. After it was welded it was heavily coated on all four sides and over the face of it with what looks like a brown seam sealer. Then it was painted over.

How was this bracket painted? Spray can, brush or out of a gun?


Wanted to Buy / 66 Glove Box Door Emblem NOS

I am looking for a new, never installed NOS only running horse emblem for the 66 style glove box door.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Tachometer Wiring Grommet?
« on: November 29, 2020, 08:25:53 PM »
Did the original tachometer have a grommet where the wires pass through the mounting bracket? Mine does not have a grommet; just a hole in the mounting bracket.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Upper Control Arm Shims
« on: November 29, 2020, 09:05:23 AM »
My 66 Shelby had about 10 alignment shims per side used with the upper control arms. Did 66 Shelbys use more shims since they had the longer pitman and idler arms?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Identifying brake hardware for rear drums
« on: November 24, 2020, 08:05:23 PM »
Here is a picture of brake "wing" hardware. These are also called cable anchors. Does anyone know which (if any) of these was used on March 1966 built Shelbys?  The assembly manual shows the wing style anchor used on rear drum brakes.

The hole for the mounting stud on each of these shown in the picture is 1/2" which is too small to install over the 3/4" mounting stud on the backing plate without enlarging it.

I have also attached a picture of my rear brakes with a modified (drilled out) cable anchor installed. I am pretty sure my brakes never had a cable anchor.

Feedback on what these came like from SAI in 66?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Pittman arm?
« on: November 14, 2020, 09:35:32 PM »
Was the 66 Shelby Pittman arm the same arm as used on power steering cars? Who was the supplier to San Jose in March 66? Thank you.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Finish of Tie Rod Adjusting Sleeves
« on: November 11, 2020, 04:08:50 PM »
What is the color of the tie rod adjusting sleeves new from the assembly line from San Jose in March of 66? I have nos ones. One is painted black and one is unpainted, natural steel.

Thank you!

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Hoods and hinges
« on: November 10, 2020, 12:42:29 AM »
Were Shelbys in the March 66 time frame shipped to SAI without hoods? If so, were the hood hinges installed? If the hood hinges were installed, were they installed with or without springs?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Hertz Brake Warning Decal Location?
« on: November 10, 2020, 12:21:57 AM »
I am trying to find out when and if Shelby applied the Hertz brake warning decal at the factory. I am  also looking for information on where to attach the Hertz brake warning decal for cars built and shipped in March 1966. I have seen them mounted on the dash pad above the radio and on the dash metal below the radio. Hertz 1621 for sale at Mecum this Friday has one on the dash pad. I have no idea if this is original to that car.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Original heater hose stripe color?
« on: November 10, 2020, 12:16:19 AM »
Wondering if members will post pictures of original heater hoses with the white stripe? I have looked at the reproductions from Kevin Marti and others and they do a poor job of matching originals I have seen. I no longer have original ones to look at right now

The Kevin Marti reproductions have a faint white ink stripe consisting of three lines. The color looks like a blue white. These don't match what I remember of original ones.

Any suggestions on making a set or a source for NOS would be appreciated.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Attachment Fasteners for Cobra T-Pan
« on: November 06, 2020, 07:11:01 PM »
AMK uses out hex bolts in its master engine kit for the 1966 Shelby for the Cobra oil pan. I noticed "witness" marks on my T-pan indicating star washers were previously used. I have only seen those washers used with Phillips head machine screws.

So what are the correct fasteners that Shelby used in mid-March 'for the T-Pan?

Thank you.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Coil Mounting Location
« on: November 06, 2020, 03:50:10 PM »
Looking for information on the mounting location from a March 66 built Shelby Hertz with Autolite carb. Most pictures I have seen show the coil mounted on the on the passenger side. It looks like there is more room to install in on the driver's side and then it would not have such tight clearance with the bypass water hose. Thoughts?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Alternator fan and pulley colors and finishes?
« on: November 05, 2020, 10:50:14 PM »
Looking for information on the generally correct color for the alternator fan and the large pulley on a March 66 Shelby. My fan on the alternator is black. And, while I have never seen a corporate blue painted pulley, mine was blue.

Also, looking for a picture of the vacuum line and fitting on the rear of the S2MS Shelby intake on a Hertz automatic car.


1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Detailing questions
« on: November 03, 2020, 03:33:04 PM »
I am looking for input on:

The brand and color of the oil filter at the time the March built '66s shipped from Shelby.

Did workers at Shelby change the oil filter when installing the aluminum pan?

Was the oil filter painted blue at the same time the engine was painted?

When the oil pan was replaced at Shelby, did they often replace the pan gasket? I can't imagine pulling the pan and not damaging the gasket. Thus, I believe the cork gasket should not be painted blue on its edge if it was replaced. Is that correct?

Were there axle paint codes for the driver's side and passenger side axles that were installed at San Jose? If so, what colors?

What color was the silicone or RTV as used by Ford and/or Shelby in March 66 on the engines and in particular as used by Shelby when installing the intake manifold?
