1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Old -vs- New Traction Masters
« on: August 20, 2020, 09:01:17 AM »
I've restored and installed the traction master under ride bars on 1816.  The original tubes both had a slight bend that were straightened out.  My concern is will they just bend again once I start driving the car?  Are the newer tubes with the correct end marking sold by traction Master made with thicker wall tubing or will they bend up just as easily?  I don't plan on changing any of the original mounting brackets just the tubes.  With the reasonable price for the complete set and accurate tube markings I was thinking may be a good choice.  Any advise or opinion appreciated.


1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Anyone in the York PA or Baltimore area?

Hi all,

I'm coming to the final stages of completing 6S1816.  I would like to see a properly restored 66 that has been judged and received a Bronze or higher.  If there are any unrestored original cars within my area having an opportunity to view one would be terrific.  If  you're willing to allow me to see your car and take pictures I would greatly appreciate the opportunity. 

Thank you

Remember this movie?  The car was always cool (except for the 1 tire burnout).  I noticed Tuck was strapped into the pod with Ray Browns

Concours Talk / 1966 289 HiPo Waterpump
« on: May 07, 2020, 03:46:34 PM »
What is the criteria for the water pump on a 66 Shelby?  Other than the casting number and correct paint what would determine an accurate part?  I have a few with casting and hub differences.  If the only thing being judged is paint and casting number would either be correct with no point deductions?

I have pictures in the 1966 Shelby section under "Water Pump"

Thank you -

« on: May 01, 2020, 11:05:52 AM »
Here is a picture of original rear view mirror from 66 Hertz.  Is it true they were painted this color for easy spotting in Shelby's lot prior to shipping?  Is this red paint rear view correct for a 66 Hertz?
