Bob, do you know if the hood hinges were also a funky gold.  I had my hinges rebuilt and they just asked if I wanted them black or the original gold.  I'm not sure they would really know.  Some of the photos make them look like they are bare metal.  My powder coated black looks great but I guess thats got to go...LOL

I to am repainting a 70 GT500 conv.  Are you guys saying these bolts were gold regardless of the body color?  Was this an anodized gold? Can I assume the fender bolts were also this gold color

Thanks so much
Rick

I have studied several Shelbys photos of the 69/70 and my guess is that the fender bolts were not painted the color of the car at Ford but if you know please advise me.  If not painted what is the silver look I see on some restored cars?

Thanks
Rick

My cable has always arrived in the trunk in front of the right wheel housing.  Crossed over to he drivers side with a joint fitting for EZ removal of antenna.

Bob,
Looking at what I have it is very close to the image you showed for a 69 part.  The jamb nut is different and I may have never received the support brace in 1978 when I bought it from Burwell's in Portland Oregon. There were very few reproduction parts at that time.  So I can only guess this could be one of the after market units that was being installed by dealers in that era.  My set of keys even have the same black zip tie as shown in your photo.  I may just make a support arm as shown in your photo and call it close enough. Thoughts?

Ed,
Then what your saying is not all antennas would have been the same.  Basically what the dealers thought looked good or what was in stock.

Thank you Bob, I doubt ill go 500 bucks.  In your mind the best reproduction one that works is?  Maybe what T Branda offers.

« on: August 13, 2020, 02:47:58 PM »
Did you get your question sorted out?  I have a 69/70 and as the top folds down the bottom or first fold goes forward, then I push the second fold towards the back of the car.  The last fold goes to the back as well.  The very first fold or bottom one is just a little over the back seat trim and I tuck it down prior to placing the boot on.  I'm stating all this from memory and can always double check if you need me to but feel 98% correct.

« on: August 13, 2020, 02:40:14 PM »
I did purchase a white kit from T Branda last week.  It is white for sure, the kit I put on the car in 1979 was 3M and from Ford back then.  It's off white or more yellow.  I think the white one will look good on the Royal Maroon paint, lets just keep that to our selves lol

Hi,
I've owned my car since 77 and the antenna has always been on the drivers side.  Does that seem correct you you guys?  Second thing is I replaced it with what I was told to be original style for Shelby.  I did that in 1979, Now I'm repainting the car and really question the correct antenna. I will attach some photos for your opinions.  Thanks in advance for your thoughts
