Appears to be a brighter shade than the original . Is this a modern day clone?

Sitting outside all winter and summer in Pennsylvania.  It's a real shelby and owner says he will sell his house and live in the shelby before he sells it.

Dominic is on the case.  ;)

Many Shelby enthusiasts don't realized that typically the 69 Shelby's got the E 70 15 BSW tires if produced before the suspension changeover of late March 69. I think it was only the Hertz cars that got them after.

Per Vinny, 1584 (March 31st build) came with both the KKX suspension update, and the E70X15 BSW tires. Of course it is the earliest known KKX suspension car, so that may have something to do with it.  ;)

If you notice I used the word "typically" to cover the occasional anomaly like you mention which is not typical .  ;)
;D

What does the original post have to do with anything?

And Doug knocks one out of the park  ;)

Perhaps we can get your new post merged with the original thread

Thats because the nonsense can be deleted by the moderator, before locking it down.

This topic split out from a parts for sale thread  ::)

Please refrain from starting discussions within the classified sub section   :)

Ok, the difference is that "Slabside" is a derogatory term, IMO, to original Cobra owners, while 427 Cobra instead of 428 Cobra was an 'in period' term used by SA. Slabside was 'invented' in the 80's, most likely the 90's, by the replica group.

I'll just add, I heard the term "Slabside" being used as early as SAAC 7, 1982 Mostly by 427 owners  ;)

  Am I allowed to ask a WIW question? Have some spare parts left over from my KR and not sure what they are worth.

              Thanks, Pete.

That would be in the appeals subforum
Once soliciting items for sale, move the item(s) to the appropriate for sale classified sub forum

One question for you experts and I don't know the answer is whether more documents on the car are available from the SAAC Registrar.  I may be making this up in my mind but I seem to think that the Registrar had some service documents on my 67 GT500 because I can't figure out where else I got them from. 

Send a private message to Mongo (Vinny) the 69/70 registrar
http://www.saacforum.com/index.php?action=profile;u=104

If there are additional documentation to be had, he will let you know.

Congratulations on the purchase.

I need a little advice

My son who turns 16 later this month started working on his Mustang SVO. The body filler cracked on the hood and the result is surface rust with heavy pitting. Body filler will have to be used to smooth it out, but what should I use to treat the metal? 

Not sure if any good rust treatment, self etching primer should be used BEFORE smoothing the Pitts out with filler. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Dave

Dave,

   First you need to go further in to the body filler that is seen in your picture, I suggest 6 inches past any metal contamination at the very least. You then need to use varying grits of automotive grade sandpaper to get rid of the sanding scratches. I suggest sanding out the scratches to at least 180 grit, maybe even 220 grit before wiping down and treating the metal with an etching solution to remove the microscopic rust within that the sanding cannot get at, (read the product instructions carefully and follow them to the letter) and then topping with an etch primer. Which product to use is strictly up to you, as is which etch primer to seal the bare metal with afterwards. What you want to watch out for is incompatibility between products that could cause issues down the road with adhesion.

Hope you find this helpful.

Up For Auction / Re: S Code Apron and Door Data Plate for Sale
« on: July 06, 2020, 09:08:38 PM »
Sold for $7,345.00

For the record: 7F02S149965
You are bidding on the front apron, 2 doors, front and rear bumpers from a 1967 Mustang S code GT Fastback that I had over 20 years ago.  The serial number from the apron, door plate and the Marti Report all match a clean title in my name (see pics).  I was hoping and looking for a donor body to use, but lost interest and its time to move on.
Both GT Deluxe doors are in great shape and have the Carlite tinted glass.
