+1 but it has smog gear so it must compensate for the steering wheel  ;D

Itís strange that the original poster hasnít come back to post any new info or pictures.

My suggestion is in line with Pete, donít flood the zone.

Letís move on to something else.

A day in the sun down under in Melbourne Australia

And.....the fender bolts are painted the same color too

Iím not a concourse judge but thatís got to drop the value.

Oh well maybe Iíll see it on my holidays in Queensland when lockdown in Melbourne is over and they allow us to cross borders and.....not much fun down here now with COVID curfew from 8pm to 5pm and working from home and not allowed to cruise further than 5 km from home.

Interesting times.

Queensland is free from lockdown so the new owner will be able to drive and enjoy,

Letís hope he joins the forum if heís not a current member and posts the new arrival when it gets to its new home.

No conversion required in Australia.

Both my 66 Hertz and KR are still LHD, makes for interesting overtaking on country roads when you canít see past the car in front because Iím on the shoulder of the road. Lucky my wife comes out with spotter.

Thank you all for your thoughtful reply's. Yes I am in the market for a 66 Hertz car. I am considering a Green car and a Black car.  Both cars are great cars. I have yet to personally inspect either car, so it may be a no brained after I look and drive them both. I used to own a Black n Gold car and prefer that color, but the Green car seems to be as original as the Black. So my question was just to help me in my decision making process.

Donít forget White, Red and Blue...all look great with the gold stripes but the Black and Gold is what people know Hertz cars to be.

Personally mine is White with Gold and I like...just my 2 cents

I'm trying to remember who made them as I bought one for my 68 over a decade ago. I also got the emergency flasher stalk off the same guy as those were prone to breaking on tilt wheel assemblies . Gary

I think the person you are referring to is Rick Peraino. He is located in PA and manufactures and sells tilt column parts & accessories plus restored ashtrays for Shelbys. I have bought many of those 68/70 emergency flasher knobs from him.

His phone number is 610-246-0858 and email is

+1 I bought the knob from Rob. Great guy. He sent it to me sll the way back to Australia

Also one of the videos online shows a spring with plunger between the filter tang and the valve body.
Iíve had my filter off and no sign of a spring with plunger. Is this normal for the C4 on my Hertz?

Was this a mod done Shelby or am I missing something here??

Yep rhjanes, sounds the same as mine.

Iíd like to give it a go myself and hav found a YouTube video that shows how to replace it after removing the the pan and valve body to get to the nut from the inside and remove the shaft to replace 2 seals.

Is there anything to watch out for on reassembling the valve body and torque settings. I donít have a manual to refer to.

I put more fluid in while on the hoist and found the O ring at the tube is fine but it ran like a tap from the shifter shaft.

So shifter shaft seal it is.
