1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Holley 715 opinions and advice
« on: March 22, 2020, 02:26:54 PM »
With some downtime I have been looking at and thinking about 6S281. Over the last several years I have managed to accumulate virtually all of the hard to find Shelby/K code items that had gone missing or just rotted over many years. My goal is to restore 281, within reason, to “as new” (as possible) when delivered to Richardson Ford here in Albuquerque Nov 1965. I have become a bit of Realist when it comes to items like double / single crimped brake hoses, I have decided to use Ford service replacement double crimped hoses primarily for safety, just seems like common sense at this point. Plus I can always upgrade down the road if desired. That said, I intend to drive this car sparingly, I have no interest in going to concourse level one condition, I will take a run at concourse level two.
All that being said I would like thoughts and opinions concerning my recently acquired date correct carburetor. Drew at air-fuel-spark sounds like the guy to have mechanically and cosmetically restore these carburetors. My plan was to box this unit up and send it to him but I am now having second thoughts, not because I don’t trust him, I just don’t want to get this wrong. My question is this, should I restore this carburetor mechanically or go all the way into the external cosmetics, color also? I have seen older pictures Of early Shelby’s with carburetors that look exactly like mine does now, please see pictures. I have also seen pictures of nicely restored cars with the brighter and darker colored carbs. What to do? Thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


Swap Meet / April 1965 Holley 715
« on: February 17, 2020, 12:37:22 PM »
I have a April 1965 3259 Holley 715 that is absolutely complete and original, it does need to be rebuilt/restored. My intent is to use this on 6S281 but I would be willing to do some trading for a July, August, September unit in better or comparable condition. I can live with the April 65 unit on my early 66 but I am also all about helping others in our hobby improve their cars. PM If you have any thoughts on this. I am not interested in selling this unit out right.
Thanks, Karl

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Coil mounting bracket for 6S281
« on: February 08, 2020, 02:37:01 PM »
Need a little help from the Shelby gurus out there. Is this the correct coil bracket or 6S281? It was built at Ford in October 1965. All the pictures I have studied show the hole ( approx 5/16” ) in the front of the bracket, I’m not sure about the angle on the mounting face that attaches to the right head. Thanks, trying to get all these little details correct. Also, does anyone have an example of the correct bolt used to mount this to the head?
Much appreciated as always, Karl

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Unicorn?
« on: October 01, 2019, 03:04:39 PM »
As many of you know I have been on the hunt for a correct early 1966 intake manifold or 6S281. This is the manifold that has the firing order and the part number on the back of the manifold, it also has the square corner pad near the A on Cobra.  I know they were limited use on early cars, am I chasing unicorn?? Does anyone think anyone has one of these that could be bought?
 Thanks, Karl

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / NOS rotunda mirror find
« on: September 19, 2019, 11:30:59 PM »
 I was thrashing on eBay about a week ago and came across a NOS Rotunda gt350 mirror which I needed for 6s281, (thanks Cory). The mirror showed up today and it was like opening a time capsule, I felt a bit guilty pulling everything out of the original box after it had been there about 54 years. The mirror is perfect, the small envelope that had the gaskets and screws had never been opened. It came with two base gaskets, one is flat the other has a curve to fit the curve on a mustang door, I had never seen a curved gasket before. One of the most interesting things in the box were the original mounting instructions, there is also a paper template that shows exactly where the mirror should mount on a 65-66 Mustang. I’m sure some of you already know about the mounting location. If anyone would like a copy PM me and I will arrange to get a actual size copy to you, Just cover postage. 
Thanks, Karl

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / 1966 GT 350 original tires
« on: July 01, 2019, 10:41:57 PM »
 6S281 came new with 15 inch Kelsey Hayes silver steel wheels and still has them. According to some ads I’ve seen it sounds like the first 200 1966 cars came with Goodyear blue dots. What tires would’ve come new on 281?
Thanks in advance, Karl

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Correct Radiator cap
« on: June 17, 2019, 11:07:04 AM »
Located this radiator cap in some items that I had purchased from a business that was closing up. Is this Correct for a San Jose October 65 built car? Specifically 6s281.
 Thanks as always for your wisdom.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / 1966 Starter Solenoid
« on: May 12, 2019, 06:18:52 PM »
 The original starter solenoid is long gone from 6S281. I found this FOMOCO solenoid in some items I purchased from a local shop that went out of business. It looks like someone may have lightly wire brushed it and clear-coated it, I think I can correct all that. The material of the body has sort of a brown cast to It.  6S281 was built at San Jose in mid October 65.  I Suspect the 2701966 refers to a 1966 date Which would make it too late for my car.  Thoughts, advice?
 Thanks in advance, Karl
