Wonder if she was named after Carroll? She is one of the luckiest people walking around today.

Congrats to your dad - you two will have fun driving to SAAC Sonoma this year. He'll enjoy pointing and laughing at you from his air conditioned car while you are sweating in the July/August CA weather. If you are coming let me know.
The "U" shaped buffer on the locator post is typical as far as I know. 

However the tape ???

(Note the metal light socket housings, common on early '67's - later they are plastic.)

Does anyone know what type of Savini rim this might be?  I think it would look good on my dad's Boss.  That and lowering springs.
No, not typical.  Probably used for spacing/ vibration noise. The only place I had any tape was on the dash where the metal point comes up between where the speedo/tach would sit.

 Joe Bunetic is the guy to see. He is reasonable and has been doing these for decades. Beautiful job on the BJ-BK's.  Holley Custom Shop I would avoid. They are not in the restoration business, but the repair business. There are many nuances when restoring factory applications Vs. those simply made for speed.

I have jet hot coated 6114 Hooker Super Comps. They fit perfect and I didn't have to ding or bend anything for clearance. They were perfect. What I do suggest is opening up the bolt holes slightly in the flange.  You'll also need the drop bracket for the power steering cylinder. The only place that is a bitch to change plugs is the left rear two plugs by the booster/master cylinder. The other trick I use is removing the valve covers. It really does free up a lot of room.  Yes, you have to remove the export brace to remove the valve covers. Be sure to use a little dielectric grease on the plug boots too. The only big block mustang I struggled with to the point of throwing tools was a 1967 390. The shock towers were the issue. They had cracked and shifted.  As usual, I can't post pictures.

How about Morgan Freeman?

The funny part is that NO ONE asked for anyone opinion on what was correct or incorrect. I wenrt thru all the post and there was not a single statement like, "what do you guys think of this find??  "What is incorrect or correct"

Yet, we still get those here why are picking apart this persons amazing find.

You posted pictures, asked for information, mentioned you were looking to buy it and posted links, all in the 68 Shelby section of the SAAC forums...... what did you expect?  Silence?  Seriously...  >:(

.............The assemblyline type open emmision base came with one small 1/8 nipple that was plugged. It was located in the same area that the larger nipple was located on at . I believe we have discussed this before after the big crash.

Posted this on the CMF a couple of weeks ago. Figured it would help here also. Not certain what other applications is was used on - notice what appears to be an old gold paint job. Hope this helps

MKII Cobra's are another application except using the early style chrome lid. I'm not sure about the MKI .
