1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 67 Brake rotors
« on: June 13, 2021, 11:49:35 AM »
I have one "due"from NPD.  Seems  somebody there mixed up the part numbers between the replacement rotors and the cheaper ones with the cast all in one hubs. A rarity for NPD.

  Or just saw the bracket and re-weld/braze it together.  You need to reposition the part the mounting bolt goes into.

I worked at Chrysler's Chicago pre-delivery center,June of 1970 to January of  1975. Seen quite a few cool muscle cars with the column shifter automatic. 'Cudas, Challengers, Chargers, Super Bees, Road Runners, GTXs.  Seems certain dealers did not recheck their factory order forms.

  Grill:  what I don't see is the angled "eyebrows" that an early angled grill would have.  It seems the headlights are pushed forward into the openings without them.
  Can you post a grill photo shot a little off to the side?

  Your car looks great!
      My question: are you saying that they took the centers out, replated the origial rims, and then put them back together, with original looking rivets?

I think there was at one time aircraft landing bulbs on that car, or possibly Cibie for light bulbs.

There is a different harness for the tach and non-tach clusters.

Morphing warning: isn't this the 67 GT 350/500 thread? What happened?

Another thing: Adding a charger does not change the Rpm limit. It helps getting to the limit faster.

A couple of years back, at a MCAC N show there was a 68 GT500 with A/C  and a Paxton .  I think Tim Lea had something to do with the restoration. Or possibly the Coralsnake.   
  In short, custom blower mounting on the right side,, trunk mounted battery.

  And, notice that they are color coded.  Impossible to connect to any other item under there except the corresponding color coded one.
  Word of caution:  Be carful how you lay the instrument cluster in the opening.  You can short the wires from the alternator to the ground and melt the harness.

My dad had a 55/56 emerald green wagon. He said it had a "thunderbird" engine. My guess would have been a 292 or a 312. Then he got a '58 wagon we did a family trip to Yellowstone in.                  Me, I ordered a 77 Volare wagon. It was cool. No roof rack, 318, auto, tilt wheel ,no wood grain, am/th A/C.  copper gold color. Oh,and I had it Ziebarted.                                                                My wife's parents had a 70 Country Sqiure.                                                                                   Seems like Mustangs, everyone has a wagon story.
