Very interesting post and information!

Restoring a car to day one does honor to the car. Restoring to the standards of today honors the market and owners pocketbook at sale time.

Truer words were never spoken.

Great shots!  Love the Torq Thrusts but then again I'm biased.

Transam lug nuts. Obnoxious, abrasive, non conforming, the diametric opposite of concours. But I still love em!

Got the 1:64 5R002 piece today.  It's pretty sucky and I cannot recommend it.  Alternative is a Shelby packaged 1:64 alternative but the wipers looks weird.  Scale is too small perhaps to reasonably duplicate an R type Shelby Mustang.

I don't get why Ford doesn't continue to make these parts. Examole: If you own a Mercedes 300sl gullwing Mercedes will make you every single part you need right from the factory. Now that is impressive!

But do the parts look exactly like they did originally?  Ford made service replacements for years but they often looked differently making them not what many owners would want currently. 

Don't know Gullwings so just asking :)
I can't testify to that as fact that it is an exact of an original but I make a logical inference that it is knowing how neurotic the Germans are about such small details. I would imagine that gullwing owners would be rather vociferous about even slight deviations from original parts given the high high dollar values on such cars. In the final analysis I don't know would be my answer to your question.

Best regards,

Replace the coil yourself as was suggested and see what happens. I had a similar problem and bought a new coil and the problem went away. I also replaced the little module in the Oertronix distributor.

Nice!

Will any R models restored or not restored be present at the Mid America meet this year?  5R002 possibly?

Best regards,

Good looking piece. Such things can also be found on Amazon. Just acquired a 1:64 Ken Miles R model number 98 but it has some inaccuracies on it such as vents instead of pop rivited sail panels but it looks good in the 5R002 livery...https://www.ebay.com/p/Greenlight-1-64-1965-Shelby-Gt350-Terlingua-Racing-Team-D/3015274550?iid=183088512929&_trkparms=gclientid%3DPa8Dt5FRhse3B2YJ629jjJroBu14g1gGZv4WG7oD8n1k66QB47jVRCc0W6pyV58q&_trksid=p2489528.m4324.l9588

Hello Bob and thank you very much for the education on the subject. My car is no concours queen, but has numerous mods on her. A day eleventeen car as I call it. But an original looking battery would be choice. Looks like that's not happening anytime soon.

Best wishes,

Richard E.
