1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / GT350 1236
« on: April 23, 2021, 09:34:43 AM »
I am still looking for information on 1236. It is an Acapulco blue 350. I have only been able to trace it back to Denver CO area on a used car lot fall of 1978. Previous to this someone had converted it to a 4 speed, removed the power steering, and rolled the lips of the fenders for more tire clearance. If anyone has more information please let me know.

Since we unfortunately will not have SAAC at Indy in June. Is anyone considering going to Tulsa for the Mid America Show? It's dates are almost the same that SAAC was. So people with pre scheduled vacation, time should work. The dates for the show are June 18-21.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Vinyl and carpet

Where do you get the vinyl to recover seats and console? I have purchased the comfort weave from SMS. Also best carpet kit and extra carpet for console?

Thanks for any help.

Under cars how about adding a new category, for day two cars and race cars?
Looks like in the random pictures thread both of these are very popular.

Is the carpet on the console the same as the floor carpet? And is the vinyl the same as on the seats?

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 68 GT350 rear axle housing
« on: February 23, 2018, 09:49:39 AM »
I have had my 68 for many years. Not running. Some of you are going to shoot me for this but in the mid 90's. I took some parts off of it for my race car. The race car was at least a 69 Mach 1. I can not remember if I pulled the rear axle housing.
Is it supposed to have necked down axle tubes or straight. Is the straight one in the pics it? I know the axles only have two recessed holes. But they are 31 spline.
I am trying to get it finished in time for this years SAAC meet in Sonoma.

PS How do you remove the over spray on door tag. Without ruining the door tag.
