1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Deluxe Door Panel Inserts
« on: Today at 01:12:32 PM »
I just ordered a pair from NPD and they say they are in stock and made by Burton.  I will let everyone know how it works out for me.

That is great. Was there an advantage to going to Burton directly? Color matching maybe?

The federal law requiring automatic transmissions to be VIN stamped did not take effect until January 1, 1968. In general all FOMOCO products are VIN stamped on the transmission from the beginning of 1968 model year. None were stamped prior to 1968 model year. Only 4 speed transmissions and high performance engine assemblies were required prior to January 1, 1968.

Pretty sure we discussed this in the past on crashed forum 1.0. I'm not aware of evidence that any of the 65-66 GT350 T-10M versions (aluminum/aluminum, aluminum/cast iron, cast iron/cast iron) were VIN stamped.

And the T10M1's did not come with a tag, but will have an assembly date that should precede the cars San Jose assembly date.  The HiPo C4's did come with a tag and date code, also preceding the San Jose assembly date.

Royce, 67 427 Fairlane's were stamped with the Vin on the bottom embossment of the top loader.

Same with '67 GT500s must be the High Performance Engine assembly clause ? Only the transmission tho, not the engine.

Burton Antique Auto Parts has the door panel and dash inserts made of real stainless with the backing.  Much better than the other reproductions.

Has anyone placed an order recently? I had trouble getting thru a while back, want to try again if they are still a going concern.

Maybe I have a bad #?

Looks fantastic!

Fast forward.... yesterday I stopped at a fellow members new garage..... (BTW Fran, breathtaking !) and he has a Boss 302 in Lime Gold. Obviously painted with modern 2 stage paint and clear coat...... WOW did it look good.

Now my head is messing with me..... and it didn't help that my wife saw it too .....

Fresh Lime Gold in 2-stage is truly on a different plane compared to old single stage enamel.

Can anyone tell me where I might find a copy of the 1967 GT350/GT500 master assembly manual shown at the 2:00 minute mark?
Branda sells it .I think Branda got them from the Vinman years ago. Branda took the collection of blueprint drawings and reduced the size so that they could be published in a smaller reference manual . I have a full size set acquired 25 years ago or more which is harder to manage. Some are useful some are not . For example they are not real accurate with many details but the drawings give a general idea. They are best used used along with other corroborating information or they may confuse more then help. Do not take every aspect of them at face value . Confirm all details .


Think Branda and Virginia Mustang both sell them

Thank you

BAT is a nightmare, I have no idea why anyone would sell a car there.

Probably the $5K max seller's fee plus avoiding the cost of bringing a car to an in-person auction?


I was talking about people being able to take a giant S on the car anonymously.

I think Eric Lipper actually gave his name early on.

Not disagreeing with you tho. There are others.

Love the pictures.

If that was my dad's car, I would try to get it back too. Hopefully Goranfor is interested in selling.

Good luck!
