302 mex block, appears to have 351 heads on it. I don't know history but came out of running driving car and it sounds super healthy. Cobra covers and oil pan are repos, hipo balancer is C8. Has new Holley looks like about 650 and headers. The S2 intake on motor does not come with motor but I will include repo s2 intake  $3000 not interested in shipping     located in Mass

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 67 vs 68 window regulators

67 regulators have the longer shaft for the handles.
Yes I understand that. Hard to tell length looking at ebay pictures.  It seems like you can tell visually by the 68 spline goes all the way to the end and 67 has added extra (maybe 1/4-3/8") after the spline

How can you visually tell a 67 window regulator from 68?

Is there a scheduled date for when the car will debut on BAT?  Any pics you'd be willing to share to entice and tease us before the auction?
I have submitted it but still waiting for date when it will go live. Were just getting it cleaned and detailed now, will post pics soon

The car will definitely be bid up by someone who knows what the car really is and knows what it takes to make a car of this caliber i.e. reproduction parts vs. nos parts, tasteful mods vs. assembly-line correct.  All it takes is 2 bidders that really want it!!   
As most of you know I have seen and restored a lot of Shelbys. I bought this one because it was the best car I had ever come across. All born with drive train, sheet metal, fiberglass, tags, hardware etc. Never had a spot of rust on it. It is a no excuses car

Oh boy... I cant wait for all the armchair experts to set the car's owner straight on the intricacies of 1968 Shelby Mustangs in the comment section. I'll make sure to have my popcorn ready to watch the schooling  ;D

Bet the car is going to "ring the bell"!

Oh it will be interesting for sure. Early non recall car. I can hear it already "should have Lucas lights! Should have aluminum intake and Holley carb

Is that the one Tim did with the fiberglass paint intentionally mismatched?
No not intentionally mismatched but the process was intentional. Single stage metallic fiberglass sprayed 4 weeks after body. Mike Shally said most accurate paint job Ive ever seen. I cant believe you had the balls to do it

Thanks Pete, I'm too stupid to post pictures. This is an assembly line BB clutch box dated june 68. Notice zinc plating, phosphate rivets and bare steel in clutch contact area

There is also a detail that most people that get them plated overlook and it affects the function. The contact areas where the hub gets pulled into the plate by the magnet is machine bear steel for a better contact and holding. If left plated they tend not to hold as well when the magnet kicks on.

Got them, thanks

I have seen that style of adjusting idler pulley, but it is definitely not common. Is that a Metuchen thing? or more likely aftermarket replacement?
Not Metuchen, I say aftermarket
