Hi All,
Thank you for all the input on my questions , always great knowledgeable
help here. So I ordered a hipo balancer from Cobra Automotive , my engine is original
to the car and I don't plan on cutting corners while rebuilding it . I do occasionally exceed the
speed limit and don't need the engine coming apart due to a low quality part. I do plan on JEGS for
some other assorted parts.

Hi All,
I am getting ready to order parts for my Shelby's  289 hipo rebuild and have not ordered
from JEGS before just was wondering if anyone has feedback on ordering from them?
also I will probably replace my old balancer and Scott Drake makes a Hipo balancer that is
supposed to be correct minus the ford logo.  I was thinking
about using this as well, but again has anyone used one of these balancers? Your time
and input is appreciated.

Most of the Shelby "experts" I run into at car shows
don't seem to have ever owned one, but their next door neighbor did.

The movie car was a fantasy and so is the Vin. number.

Like they say on T.V. the car doesn't know what color it was.

I see nothing wrong with a color change if you don't like the original
color regardless of what it was , although I would stick with a color
that was originally available for Shelby's in 1967.  My 67 was originally
lime gold as well when I bought it in the color of Brittany blue.  It was done
well and completely along with being supposedly a more desirable color.
Unless a spectator at a car show has a registry with them they would never know.
I believe the value may be higher in this case than if it was original.
It's your car do what you like and just take the point deduction and the
next owner can change it back if they like.

When I posted this I should have been clearer .
Yes I would like to use the roller tip rockers not full roller rockers.  The last hipo I did
we used TRW roller tip but the poly lock was hitting the baffles so I removed the baffles
and fabricated new ones similar to the standard steel covers type baffle. Hoping I don't have to
do the fab mods this time.

Hi All,
I may rebuild my 67 Shelby's 289 hipo soon and may want to use
roller tip rockers , I want to use the original valve covers without modifying 
them,  the baffles will not clear on most brands of roller rockers and  valve cover
spacers are not acceptable. Has anyone found a quality brand that will clear everything?
Thanks much.

Just be happy they are talking about Shelbys and not Pintos

Some additional info.
As I mentioned I just received a copy of the 67 GT350/500
production order for my car and there are 2 boxes checked.

1) Shelby wheels ( I don't know which ones) Has 10 spokes
2) radio (does not specify which one, sounds like it would have been AM)
Being the production order I don't know if this determined where it was installed.

Pretty interesting stuff.
As the original poster on this I do have an update on my 67's ford AM/FM.
Even though i have a ton of documents on this car nothing had mentioned an AM/FM ,so I
decided to contact the SAAC registrar to see if they had any more paperwork that I did not already have ,sometimes
over the years different doc's are found for your specific car and they will send you copy's for a small fee. They had
the 67 GT350/500 production order for my car and also some letters from past owners and in one of them an owner
mentioned that he had upgraded to a Ford AM/FM . Mystery solved . I wish it would have been factory but I have no
plans to change it.

Thanks all for generously sharing you tech expertise and time so far!
I did forget to mention that yes it is the original 715 carb.   It is
making me think that to really get the best performance from the stock
engine it may take more in depth tuning and adjustments for this altitude.
