1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Dumb Question ?

For the Shelby portion of the tail light wiring I've not seen one (there is for the headlight modifications), others may have/know more...

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Fog light ?
« on: February 17, 2020, 12:00:54 PM »
The grille lights (inboard or outboard) are high-beam only (two prong) and as stated above come on with the floor switch after the headlight switch is pulled-out.  The fender lights are both Low-beam and High-beam (three prong) so when the high-beam switch is depressed you have 4 high-beam lights on at the same time.

This and the extra tail lights had a tendency to overheat the light switch and all lights would go out (not fun at night) until the switch cooled and all would come back on - for a while.

The portion in the owners manual you highlighted is reference to the fog light that were part of the GT package on a "standard" Mustang (the smaller lights in the grille of those cars see attached image) - not a Shelby.


Also, all the head lights on the '67 Shelby are the smaller diameter, not the larger standard Mustang Lights.

Please clarify.

It’s my understanding that all 4 lamp head light systems, back in ‘67, used low beam or high beam dedicated lamps. Relative to ‘67 Shelbys, the fender lamps were low beam only. The inboard or outboard grill lamps were high beam only. Thus when the high beam switch was stepped on, the inboard or outboard grill lamps (high beams) were activated/inactivated. The fender lights did not become brighter high beams. I believe that having 4 high beams would have violated DOT regulations in more than a few states.
In cars that had only 2 head lights, i.e., ‘67 & ‘68 Mustangs and ‘68 Shelbys, the fender lamps were combination low beam/high beam lamps. Those lamps had an additional filament that was activated/inactivated via the floor switch.
If I got this wrong, please correct me.
I hope this helps.
Steve

The '67 Shelby did have low and high beam lights in the fender positions, just smaller diameter bulb that stock '67 Mustang, as the same wiring harness was used to the fender bulbs - this combined with the Shelby added grille high-beams resulted in 4 high-beam on at the same time.

Any one know the car, or the people ? '66 GT350 at Road Atlanta Run Offs, 1974.

Mike

This looks like it might be Jeff Burgy and his wife.  I am going to guess it is 6S1206.  If it is, I drove this car back in circa 1985 when if was for sale for $9000.

Yes, looks like Jeff and Diane to me too.

The two I have match the middle one in Bob's 3 book comparison; 6x9 aluminum fasteners.

Thanks,

Congrats and enjoy!! 👍🏻

Do whatever "correcting" makes you happy.  Yes, the "gold-tone" on the wheels is something you could easily correct.  There are a number of Shelby guys out west that can help you.  Jeff Speegle is one.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Carpet Choices
« on: February 10, 2020, 10:53:09 AM »
Additional question:  OK, I'm trying to build a tribute to Lil'red.  So, the literature I've read said it had "Multoon (?) pile carpeting.  Who do I see for that?  Any number to call for a custom set?

Multan = Lambswool typically used in Rolls-Royce and other high-end cars - Willton.  Might want to go with the 2nd or 3rd choice from above. 

Also, I think the seats were "Rolls" leather too - Connolly leather.
