1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Splicing 67 Shelby Taillight Harnesses
« Last post by Shelby_r_b on Today at 06:59:49 PM »
I’m trying to see how the 67 Shelby taillight harnesses on each side were spliced into the original 67 Mustang wiring harness. I looked through the Branda book and didn’t see a diagram.

Side note: I have new 67 Shelby rear taillight harnesses (the green and black wires) with new sockets installed. And, I have a new main harness (if needed) - the one that connects under the dash and goes to the rear for the fuel sender, license plate light, etc.

Should these be spliced via the blue connectors? Or, do the connectors depend on the date of production?

Maybe I’m over thinking this, but I could use some help.

Thanks!

If I'm reading the shoepolish on the windows correctly, that probably signifies an 11:30 dial-in on an automatic transmission car.  More clues.

    The letters are RT which we used to add when we wanted a reaction time on our time slips. The picture does appear to have a ton of similarities but is an earlier version as that picture still has A arm front suspension . That particular "spindle mount" American wheel came out in '69 so that means the pic is after that. It does not have the headers in the set of current pictures Thomas provided. 11.30 would have been very hard to do "at that time" with a small block , especially with the heavier weight vehicle. Nitrous wasn't adapted back then either. I believe it was big block powered at that time , but I can't tell from the photos. It does have a deep oil pan. My 52 year racing career began in '67 , and I still do. Some call me an expert , but I'm just old.

Unfortunately its not the same car. The car in the picture pulling the front up is a 1968 and it had a 427 Cammer in it. I was able to verify with the old owner. (his name is on the side of the car).

He did however turn me on to the company that made the fiberglass tilt front ends. (Fiberglass ltd in the  ILL area).
Although long out of business, I have a lead on a friend of the family who says that he can help.

Trying to make out the name on the rear flank... Possibly the Alka hauler, if so might begin there. ;)

Know the answer would differ based on equipment and region of the country though Calif typically would be on the leading edge of the tech curve.

Randy when would have reaction times first been available and likely applied to cars?  Don't recall them from back in the day.

Thanks for more of this awesome Pics ... Fantastic

on the pic with the edge behind the Dragonsnake it seems like to different sort of building are come together.
the Windows are a little bit lower in the building, maybe the darker front is only the office ...

Well i can agree with you that after the 5 Windows are comes 2 more befor the other style bricks are coming

Maybe we have here about a inner storage for parts and stuff because on your 2nd pic i see some Sort
of portal to the area behind this wall

on another pic from the other side ( will integrated tomorrow) i see the same type of portal,
i mean a big door to slide away (sorry for bad englisch).

Most logic argument for me you is that the area on the right side behind the brick wall is for goodyear stuff
and not for Shelby Production stuff

for the first i will go on with the inner pics from Shelby Production

Another quick question...

i saw some pics from the first Daytona building, pics from inside a Garage wo Sheetmetal ist coming on the
wood frame,

 is it right that the hole Prototype work is done in 1042 Princeton Drive ... and then it is towed for Paint to
the Carter Building.

Here's another photo of the Carter Ave building to show how many windows there were on that side.

The darker brick at the front of the building was a higher end brick with a sharper color finish.
This might define the size of the office area but it does seem a bit small in depth.
The Princeton Drive building has this same type of higher end brick at the front of the building too.

The front offices don't line up with the back side garage areas. If you look at my (paint program) sketch in reply #4 you will see the street addresses for the façade of the Carter Avenue building. Shelby American Inc. is on the left corner (when viewed from the front of the building on Carter Ave.). The center offices (which appear to be the largest area on the front façade) are the CS Enterprises / Goodyear offices, and I still don’t know what was at 3217 on the far right.

The street addresses for the three separate entrances of the Carter Ave building were;
- 3221 'Shelby American Inc. Sales & Finance Office' / Showroom (left)
- 3219 'Carroll Shelby Enterprises Inc.' / 'Goodyear' (center)
- 3217 unknown at this time (right)

It is still possible the smaller second garage area was used as the Goodyear tire warehouse and / or storage, but they just don’t line up with the office in front.
Here's a few more photos to help show that more clearly.
