1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 1970 GT500 carb date
« on: October 21, 2020, 12:07:09 PM »
The 70 carbs were modified at kk plant converted from auto to manual chokes then the tag was stamped ED  edited. I have found the 70 cj carbs dates to be out of line in date codes after talking to kk workers these carbs were done in batches and the original carb may not have ended up on the same cars date code wise after being removed in some cases.

I have been collecting the skinny #2 clamp for last 30 years since they are hard to find and they are used on boss 429s in lima plant also. I think it was a engine plant thing since the dearborn FEs used the regular heater hose bypass clamps. The bypass hose was different also depending on the engine plant ribbed vs smooth type.

 Russel from australia couldnt make the trip but david davis bought his concours 69 b9 car . We had others from canada and Ronnie Spain (THE Gt40 guy)from Scotland also that couldnt make the trip due to covid  travel restrictions. Our other guess speakers Craig Jackson, Chuck Cantwell. Chris Engelman( Aosmith plant) due to their older age and  latest covid scare couldnt make the trip so we had Jim Wicks be our guess speaker. Jim did a great job here as he always does at the tulsa mid america meet so THAK YOU JIM WICKS. We did have cars and people from all over the USA  washington california texas new mexico florida long island new york new hampshire  ohio michigan Minnisota nebraska oklahoma illinois missiouri kentucky pennsylvania carolinas and that just from the people i know. We also want to thanks our sponsors Barret-Jackson, Billups restorations. Scott Fuller reproductions. and Titan lifts that were used to judge 20 cars and all 16 of our Pre -Qualified concours  judges that came in from all over the USA.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 1970 Hood Stripes
« on: September 23, 2020, 10:14:00 AM »
Gary the hood stripe drawing measurements are correct its the way u read them  and the description in 96 registry the way they were discribed  to the left of drawing was wrong as it says 15/16'' but look at drawing as there is a space between the 1 and 5 so it should have read 1  5/16''  NOT 15/16''  and wrong again in 97 registry description to left of drawing reads two stripes are 21  3/16'' apart but drawing is 21  13/16'' apart.  Most 70 shelby repainted cars have got this wrong looking at the 97 registry and reading it wrong but i have went over this with saac and vinny is going to have it corrected in new 69-70 shelby registry.  This is why unrestored cars are so valuable to document these type of issues and we have 2 70  shelby low mile survivors coming to our 50th 70 shelby show one has 6000 mile and a never shown before 540 mile 70 shelby coming from east and i have documented both of these cars original hood stripes and thats why i am making all 4 new template stencils using my nos RH outer stencil from kk plant to get the curves right and drawings from the inner curves as they are not the same curves around front scoop opening as the inner is a wider curve than the outer curve and if u look at the  hood in the front scoop area the inner fiberglass is moulded higher that the outer since hood is arched in that area.
