Up For Auction / One-owner Tiger story
« on: March 21, 2018, 09:39:52 AM »
In Hemmings this morning;

errilee calls the Tiger Mk IA, “our first child,” describing it as “…an original-owner car, British racing green, well cared for, always garaged, with mileage somewhere in the 70s.” We presume that’s in the 70,000s, which makes this a low-mileage example to boot. Tod’s hope was that the car would go to another long-term owner, but given the price of Sunbeam Tigers these days, it isn’t likely that a newly minted high school teacher will be bidding for the car. The New England Auto Auction has yet to publish a pre-auction estimate, but NADA Guides puts the price of a 1967 Mk IA Tiger between $62,200 (Average Retail) and $222,500 (High Retail), while Hagerty lists a #2 car at $95,500 and a #1 car at $132,000. Whoever earns the privilege of being the Tiger’s next caretaker won’t just be getting a classic British sports car – they’ll be adding a new member to the family.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Rivet source
« on: March 05, 2018, 03:21:30 PM »
Does anyone have a source for the two large rivets that hold the Heat control resistor onto the Heater box?

They look to be aluminum with a 3/8" carriage bolt style head. I copied a picture off eBay for clarifying request only. I would prefer something appearing much closer to the original rivet.

I bought the Daniel Carpenter foam replacement kit to replace all the disintegrated foam in my heater box. It did not come with a schematic, which I read the NPD version does.

Does anyone have one of those guides they can share here?


1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Do we know who restored this beauty?

To my eyes, it is about as nice as it gets;

Of course I am partial to Nightmist Blue 500's

4-speed & A/C?  wow

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Radiator questions
« on: February 02, 2018, 01:38:38 AM »
Have a couple of radiator questions;

Are there rubber insulators between the radiator and radiator support?

Is the radiator hung using 4 thru-bolts and nuts or does the radiator support have those body clips that bolts thread thru? Edit; U-nut retainer is what I believe the clips are called.

Anyone have a picture


Appeals / Gauge/Speedometer rebuild restoration
« on: January 23, 2018, 11:12:18 AM »
On the old site, several people had made recommendations for speedometer and gauge restoration.

I failed to write it down thinking I could always reference that information later.

Could we again get recommendations for this?


1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Period pictures, historical perspective
« on: January 22, 2018, 11:43:32 AM »
Seeing pictures taken back in the day, be it the 60's or 70's often have great information on how the cars were fitted.

This picture came up today on another thread. I had not seen it before. It appears to be a mostly stock, later production, '67 GT500. Note the Thermactor system is in place, but the valve covers are Shelby branded.

Bob, Dave, JD, do you have any background on this picture?


SAAC Forum Requests / Suggestions
« on: January 20, 2018, 01:56:00 PM »
I would like to start a suggestion thread;

I suggest that when you post a comment, you get to immediately see the comments in the thread in which it was posted.

This is opposed to having your post load then having the thread close and you get booted to the forum category that the thread is located in.

With the new method, you can catch your typos quickly and make corrections, or maybe you would notice your single paragraph is a full length page of information and is hard to read so you could return to break it into true paragraph format to facilitate reading and comprehension.
