1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1969 GT 350 disc brake finish
« on: November 01, 2019, 04:36:36 PM »
Another detail question. 

 On the front disc brake pads, are they natural color/finish or the metal body painted similar to the rear brake drums with the Black paint applied so not able to see thru the rims.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1969 GT 350 rear drums

  I have a set of rear drums on my 69 that show two embossed lines on the outer edge and another set that has one embossed line. Any suggestions if any of these are correct? Or can some one add a photo of the correct drums?


Concours Talk / Shelby wood shift knob
« on: September 14, 2019, 02:33:01 PM »
  I have what I believe is the correct wood shift knob with the Cobra emblem from my 69 Shelby that came with the car when I purchased 15 years ago. Have another one but noticed a difference between them, one measure 3 1/2" and the other is 3 3/4"
Both are virtually identical in contour other than the measurement.
  I know they have been reproduced but these show a lot of wear with nice patina and have seen the repo's where the emblem is not recessed properly.
 Were there multiple applications and manufacturers or just because the wood is hand made?


Concours Talk / Scissor jack identification
« on: March 31, 2019, 02:45:18 PM »
I have two scissor jacks with the 3/4 adjusting screw and date codes are 8C and 8L. Understand some 67 Shelby's were unique with the 3/4 screw but these are 68 date codes. I looked at Anghel Restorations site and these are the second generation style and measure the same.
 Any help identifying would be appreciated. Going to Charlotte this week for the Auto Fair and will bring these to sell. Would like to list correctly and not sell the wrong piece.

Concours Talk / Carter fuel pump
« on: August 04, 2018, 11:54:02 AM »
I have two carter fuel pumps, crimp style one says made in Canada with what looks like a date stamp 21F8A and the other says made in USA with a date stamp that reads 13L7A. Both are the button top but the stamping for Carter are completely different. They both have 4567 S
Trying to see if one of these are correct for my 69 GT350 made in April 69 or if anyone can direct me to the correct pump.
