Up For Auction / Owner of SFM6S1533 here ?
« on: September 23, 2021, 07:07:11 PM »
Looks like a bogus sales add listing 6S1533 for sale, anyone know the owner ?

I have recently seen a number of wanted posts for 66 gt350's, the common thread is that the people posting these wants (for the most part) are looking for a car below it's market value, in some cases less then 50% of market value.

The question is, would owners here on the saac forum sell their car for a reduce price because the buyer is on the saac forum as well?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / t5 conversion question
« on: May 08, 2021, 12:58:52 PM »
Hi all, debating on a t5 conversion so I am looking for some who has done it.

I would be going from a t10 to a t5z and I want to use the adaptor plate so I can run the original bellhousing and linkage.


Do I need to shorten the drive shaft ? If so by how much ? or is there an aftermarket bolt in?

Does the trans tunnel or shifter opining need to be modified?

What conversion kit did you use?


Hi all,

so the calipers knocked off the stick on weights again, this is the second time using the thinnest weights. Has anyone had success with wheel weights on 10 spoke Shelby wheels, if so can you post a photo of the weights you used..


1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / my experience with an nos S2MS-9030A gas cap
« on: October 26, 2020, 09:42:31 PM »
I must first start with the good quality reproduction gas gap that always bothered me because the snake looks to be missing a chromosome. So the hunt began for a NOS service part  S2MS-9030-A, it didn't take long before it was in my hands and on the car. To my surprise when they made the cap they put it together wrong and the snake was upside down! I compared it to the old and thought no big deal I'll just bend the large tab and spin it around, no dice! The stud for the cable prevented the cap from rotating to the upright position, oh and the tab snapped off. So out came the Dremel and off came the studs that hold the cap together. I re-drilled the mounting holes, used the miller 211 to weld on new mounting ears and weld the ends of the mounting studs to hold the cap together again and voila ! A nos-ish pos part... But at least the snake looks healthy.

Hi, what's the usual lead time on block casting dates to vehicle order date?

Does anyone have a photo they can post of an original horn button for the wood over the counter steering wheel?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / What is it about the 66 GT350
« on: August 17, 2020, 04:03:37 PM »
Hi all,  having been fortunate enough to have owed many muscle and pony cars over the years, I was asked recently which was my favorite,  I can't figure out why but the 66 GT350 is my favorite. Looking back in comparison to the others I have owned over the years, it would have been my favorite then as well. The 66 has something that captures my imagination every time I drive it.

So what is it about the gt350? 

The forum needs to stop people from erasing and modifying post after a comment has been made. Without historical context what's the point of having a forum at all. Allowing members with progressive mindsets to start conversation and then change the context to suit them after an undesirable outcome is wrong.

Any fellow Shelby owners in Carson city / Reno are?
