Up For Auction / 6S1341 - On Bring A Trailer
« on: October 22, 2020, 03:06:19 PM »

This 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 was sold new by Nagle Ford in Rochester, New York, and was purchased by the seller’s father from the original owner in 1984. After the car failed a New York state inspection in 2000 due to underbody rust, the seller’s father placed it in storage in his garage, where it remained until his passing in 2018. A 289ci V8 and four-speed manual transmission remain fitted, and the car retains its original color combination of blue with white stripes over a black interior. Additional equipment includes a four-barrel Holley carburetor, aluminum 10-spoke wheels, and a fold-down rear seat. This non-running GT350 project is now offered by the seller on behalf of his father’s estate with its original owner identification card, an owner’s manual, a spare door, and transferable New York registration.

The exterior is finished in Sapphire Blue and features Wimbledon White Le Mans stripes and white side stripes with “G.T. 350” script. Exterior features include a steel-framed fiberglass hood with a scoop, functional brake-cooling scoops on the rear quarter panels, and plexiglass rear quarter windows. Rust is noted on the lower doors, rocker panels, and lower front fenders, as shown in the photo gallery below along with other areas of corrosion. The seller also notes two dents in the rear taillight panel, as well as wear in the chrome finish on the bumpers and rear emblem. A spare driver’s door from a 1965-66 Mustang is included in the sale.

Aluminum 14″ wheels were optional for 1966 Shelby Mustangs and here wear older BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. A matching spare is retained in the trunk and wears a Goodyear Blue Streak tire. The GT350’s braking system incorporates Kelsey-Hayes discs up front, along with larger rear drums than standard Mustang models. The seller notes that the brake pedal is frozen.

The cabin is trimmed in black knit vinyl over the front bucket seats and optional fold-down rear seat. The black carpeting has degraded in areas of the front footwells and behind the front seats. Lap belts are in place for all four occupants.

A three-spoke steering wheel is retained but exhibits a gap in the rim. Instrumentation includes a 140-mph speedometer flanked by gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, amperage, and coolant temperature. A Shelby 9k-rpm tachometer is retained on top of the dash above an AM radio. The five-digit odometer shows 95k miles.

The 289ci HiPo V8 features a Holley 715CFM four-barrel carburetor and is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The car has not been started since 2000, and the engine and other components will require mechanical attention before the car can be returned to the road.

Underbody rust includes holes in the floorboards and frame rails, and additional closeups of the corrosion are provided in the gallery below.

The owner identification card lists the original selling dealer as Nagle Ford in Rochester, New York. An entry for the car in the 1997 Shelby American Automobile Club Registry is shown in the gallery below, as is an included GT350 owner’s manual.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Western Oregon Fires
« on: September 15, 2020, 01:22:27 PM »
Scary times last week.  Last Monday night September 7th 100+ mph east wind gusts pushed fires in the Cascade Mountains west towards Salem, Molalla and Estacada Oregon.  Over the next few days several communities including Detroit, Idanha, Gates, Mill City, Mehama, Lyons, Scotts Mills, Colton and others had catastrophic loses.  Not to mention all the other fires going on at the same time near Lincoln City, Newberg, Roseburg, Eugene, and Ashland.   Absolutley craziness. 

Homes, barns, animals, and several people's lives have been lost due to the fires.  The fires have been contained for the most part since Saturday, but there is still a tremendous amount of work being done.  Power crews are working around the clock repairing down power lines.  Cleanup crews are working to remove dead animals.  Crews are clearing fallen trees and rocks in the highways.  Then there is the police that are protecting what is left and fighting off looters and catching arsonists.  Hopefully we are through the scariest parts, but there is so much more rebuild and cleanup ahead.

I moved my cars to safety last Tuesday. What a job that is.... Growing up on the dry side of Oregon makes me always nervous about fire danger.
I have seen it happen too often in my lifetime. Maybe not having so much "stuff" is a good thing! A couple of weeks ago on the radio I heard there is a new trend called "Fall cleaning" instead of Spring cleaning. I am ok with that, this is a good excuse to move some stuff along. Less to worry about for the next disaster.

I am lucky and grateful the fire didn't get to my place. I feel very sad for the folks that cannot say that. This is going to be a long rebuild period. This Sunday, September 20th in Stayton, OR at Regis High School is a cruise-in to help raise funds to support the Santiam Canyon Wildfire Relief Fund.

Here are a few great articles of civilians that jumped in and helped (the articles only capture a fraction of the people who are helping)  Everyone put aside their differences, banded together and helped where ever is needed.  These folks are still helping today too.  Even in a natural disaster we have great people doing great things.  These articles and actions give me hope for our world.

I realize there is also a great deal of fires going on in Washington and California as well.  I wish everyone safety and hope everyone can make it through this.


Original or rebuilt to concours specs:   Front Koni shocks for a Carryover.

(Asking for a friend.  I don't the number of his car he is working on yet, but will in a while.)

Any leads or help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

« on: August 30, 2020, 12:31:56 PM »
This photo of 5R106 was posted on a facebook page this weekend.   I assume it is advertising that 5R106 will be up for auction at the Mecum Kissimmee 2021 auction? 

Does anyone know any details and care to share?  Mecum doesn't have anything on their website yet.

I am absolutely thrilled, and grateful to have the opportunity to offer this amazing iconic piece of American Automotive History!
This 1966 Shelby GT350H is a very fine example of how this car actually left Shelby American Inc. at 6501 Imperial HWY. Los Angeles, California (The Airport).
This particular GT350 has some very nice provenance, and believe it or not, has survived in beautiful condition with it's original engine and drive train in tact, and in excellent operating condition.
This is a 3 personal owner Shelby. This car left Shelby American on May 12, 1966, where it was delivered to S and C Ford in San Francisco where it was prepped for Hertz for it's “Rent a Racer” program. Once prepped it was delivered to Hertz at the San Francisco airport where it was put into service until May 26, 1967 when it was pulled from rental service and sold to it's first personal owner on September 7, 1967.
The first owner had the car until 1985 when he sold it to the second owner. In this persons possession, the Shelby was repainted sometime in the remaining 1980's, as well as having the original engine rebuilt, and the transmission rebuilt. This couple kept the Shelby until 2012 when the current owner purchased it, and has maintained it obsessively.
What I just stated above was just a quick history of this fine Shelby's life. I can't begin to go over every detail of this cars provenance as there is an abundance.
In 54 years this Shelby has sold just 3 times, and it appears that somehow each owner has truly cared for, and maintained this car...
We've all read the stories of these cars, how they were typically treated, drag raced on weekends, rented and taken to the track, and even the horrific stories of how they were rented by someone only to have their engine taken out and replaced with a little 289 2bbl engine, and then taken back to Hertz as if nothing happened.
Based on how this car appears, somehow it has survived to become an excellent example of it's original condition. If you're a Shelby fan, enthusiast, historian, or even if your a Chevy, Mopar, or any brand enthusiast, I gotta believe you can agree, if there's a Car Company that produced some of the most formidable race cars, infused High-Tech knowledge of the day in it's vehicles, and created a fun, outstanding, fearsome breed of automobiles, I think we can all agree that the name Shelby is not only at the top of the list, but is a name that will forever be apart of the American lexicon.
To capture a true 1966 Shelby GT350 Hertz is rare. Just to be in the presence of this Mustang will conjure up memories of what was happening in America at that time. For an example, when this Shelby was prowling the mean streets of San Francisco, The Beatles were performing their last concert at Candlestick Park in this Shelby's city on August 29, 1966.
Truly an amazing time, the cars, the Music...The Freedom!

1965 GT350/R-Model / NoSpin Booklet - question
« on: August 19, 2020, 11:47:56 AM »
I have a question about the NoSpin booklet for the 1965 GT350 glovebox. Did all of the small brochures receive the red stamp "GT350 silent type" on the cover? Would it still be correct if your booklet didn't have the stamp?

See photos. First photo is borrowed from website and the other photo without the red stamp was posted on Bring A Trailer with 5S048 -
