And thanks for the story links.  Really good people.

Interesting about the licensing.   I wonder if your average guy buys a kit from Mustangs To Fear and builds their own clone, are they living in fear of a call from a lawyer?  Or only when they advertise to sell it?

Nowhere in the article or on the Classic Recreations website do they mention the ďEĒ word.  I noticed they donít use the E hood.  After all these years in business, they must know what subtle differences are needed to avoid a licensing fee.
I goggled -" youtube eleanor car confiscated " and all kinds of articles came up. Even legal issues if your building your own personal E tribute.

Wow, I did too after reading your post and you arenít kidding.  I did find one story that said Classic Recreations got a license from her in 2008.  I hope theyíve since found a way out of paying that fee every time.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 67 GT350 radiator support seal
« on: September 11, 2020, 03:14:39 PM »
Should a GT350 have a radiator support seal?  I have no evidence of one being stapled on my original support.  If it's a changing thing over time, my car is a completion SJ 5/1 and SA  5/12
Thanks
Shane

Just a data point... My car has very similar dates, 5/1 SJ and 5/15 SA.  No seal when I bought it.  Inspecting the top side of my radiator support I couldn't find any evidence of the seal staples.  When I ran my finger along the underside, I found several spots with either a straight staple point remnant sticking out or in some case a complete staple leg curled up underneath.  I'm using those for position guidance re-installing the seal.

Should the Autolite sticker be there, 180deg from the COBRA sticker?

Pictured in this article, that explicitly says you can share this link in forums.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Backup wiring location into car
« on: August 13, 2020, 11:45:52 AM »
Iím glad you mentioned the jumper. The guy ( I forget his name everyone here suggested him ) who restored the shifter installed a N.O.S. switch. He said it was a little different and now I know why it doesnít include this jumper just the two wires going down to the switch. The car wouldnít have started I donít think. I could have been chasing my tail on that one.

Strange... I have both NOS and Daniel Carpenter repro in my garage.  Both have the jumper.  Whatever you do, donít be like my previous owner.  When I got the car, I checked into why the backup lights werenít working.  Not only was the backup switch missing, they hacked into the backup switch feed and the headlight harness to run a jumper in between so the car would run.  Iím dumbfounded why they didnít just find a backup switch.

Up For Auction / Re: 1969 GT350 on Bring A Trailer
« on: June 07, 2020, 12:40:55 PM »
Seems like a really good deal for that car.  The energy seemed sucked out of the room once bidder T.O.M. told his heartfelt story of being a previous owner and hoping to win the auction to have it back again.  Everyone else seemed hesitant to bid against him after that.  Jimís video describing the car and the previous owners half hour audio description of the history posted to YouTube were both wonderful.  The eventual buyer did seem genuinely psyched to have it.

That's the first time I ever saw someone stick the emblem directly to the fender without the plastic or metal frame.

Thank you very much Jeff and Bob for your thorough answers!  Sounds like they were unsurprisingly swapped out with something different at some point.  I guess Iím on the hunt now for an old spring, or just the small leaf, of a correct one.

These are off 67 GT350 #2246, 5/1/67 Ford date, no ac no thermactor.  Square hole straps.
-Would AS also be a legitimate manufacturer?
-I must be confused on how the date code works.  C7ZX part number, but E03?  Can't be '63 year?  Service parts made in 2003?

Before I reuse the small leaf, would these be legit springs for a 67 GT350?
