That is correct, if an owner sends us info on their cars and does not want their name or location listed we will honor their wishes, "But" not so long ago there were "fake" Shelbys going to auction that buy chance an "original and still present owner" contacted us to say "what's up"?  And when the auction house contacted us we said "yes the original owner still has his car and all the registrations since new" and he was not selling that car. The auction house pulled all the cars and more and there were arrests.  It really does pay to tell SAAC you are the owner so you don't have to play legal fees to defend you car in court!

sorry meant to say Hertz cars for 1969 git the big spindles but used up the E70x15 tires.


On the space saver bracket.  There has to be a point in time where non big spindles stop and and yet use up the inventory of F70x15 tires and big spindles come in and then the delete sheets reflect the introduction of the F60x15 tires and the space saver bracket came to be. Hertz cars good example introduced big and use up the old F60x15 tires. All stations at assembly plant are not up to speed at snap of your fingers. takes time to get all parts in place and add operations and changes to the assembly time procedures and instruct workers of change. "the rule of the assembly line formen is never stop the line from building units"!

“there has to be some kind of overlap or crossover when making” “production
run changes”!

ps FoMoCo is not going to throw out tires and spindles until they use them up!
