I like that idea, but I went to the website and wow, got lost. Do you have a part number? I think that would be way cool with an automatic!

Yes, your the second one to say that, I will investigate that and the post from ShelbyPat! Thank you guys, this is a start! I find it interesting that nobody has mentioned the proportioning valve, I was think it was that, but I think that only controls the rear brakes.

I am not sure of that, because I was able to move every piston. It seems when I started it up after sitting, I mashed the brakes, (just to make sure I had pedal, and they were on, after a short drive they were better, but still would hold the car slightly. Someone told me it could be a "collapsed brake hose"???

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Brakes
« on: September 15, 2019, 04:53:06 PM »
I have a nice restored 67 GT350 that I bought out of Texas. Question I have is  about the brakes. The front brakes are so tight. I do not drive the car often, so do I just need to drive it and break them in? The front brakes are hot, the reads are cool after a 10 mile drive. In fact when I start it up in the garage, it is actually hard to move. Can the proportioning valve be that bad that it makes the front brakes tight? WHAT IS THE GIG? I know that 67 brakes are "touchy" but a Shelby I had years ago would lock up the rears easily, but this car locks up the fronts! DANGEROUS!

A while back I did the AOD trick to a 66 and it was OK. My 67 has a nice built auto and with the 389's it is great out of the hole and grabs the gears perfect, the only thing is the highway, (65 and sometimes 70) WOW that is revving! I thought of a AOD, but I think I rather change the gears. So now that I think the stock gears are 3:50's I will go with that, just a thought though, it does not seem to me like 389's to 350's are a big difference.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Correct gear ratio
« on: September 14, 2019, 05:22:15 PM »
I have a 67 GT 350 with 3:89 gears. Correct for a 4 speed, but my car is a auto with air. Seems crazy on the highway, but I love the around town driving. What would be a nice gear ratio for overall driving? What did the car come with if equipped with auto and air?

Don't buy a re-poop from CJ, I had a horrible experience on a rear 66 bumper. They did not back it up, bumper bolt holes were in the wrong spot.

Friends and family has no protection for the buyer. I run if a person on fleabay wants me to do that. Its a different story on here if asked for that because I trust people on here, I would think if a person got ripped off then a post about who ripped someone off would send a warning signal. If you pay using PP and do F&F, on fleabay, if you never receive the item, you are screwed.

Nice, the red one got the best parking spot, but if it was in our town, I bet some "smart" car would park next to it....LOL
