Forgive my stupidity but why would you mostly put open rear ends in a high performance car like a Shelby instead of a posi?

     Sorry Bob , I was thinking of '68s . 100% agreement ALL '67 350's and 500's were sent from San Jose with open diffs . The only limited slip was an Equalock in'67 and NONE were made in 31 spline for the 9" , only 9-3/8ths , which do not interchange. IF a customer ordered a Detroit Locker it would have been added "after" the car was built at San Jose. Some claims of them being in the trunk have been made , likely for dealer installation. Are there any actual vehicle invoices listing them?

They are better driving cars with limited slips. A Detroit-locker is another story altogether.

You can't tell from just looking at the car what is in it. Only driving it.
