Coralsnake Updates
« on: January 08, 2022, 02:24:20 PM »
Its time for the Coralsnake's updates. More great stuff for your Shelby brain. There is a new dealer story. Some more pictures of NOS parts, a little something for the 1970 guys and everything you need to know about '69 wheels and tires.

I appreciate you all and as always it's free.

Loved the wheel and tire info -

Didn't know that Keystone made the wheels for the '69s!

Wasn’t an F60x15 used after approximately March of ‘69?  Not an E60x15?

What was the purpose of changing to a manual choke for the '70s?  Was that a CA-only thing?  Or everywhere but CA? 

Doesn't seem smart if trying to control emissions.

Ditto on the outstanding reporting in Coralsnake's Updates.

In the 1966 Dub Richardson Ford Ranch small ad touting them as being the HP Ford dealer, there's a list of the usual models. I find it curious that also listed are Police Interceptors. I wonder if they were a source for police vehicle sales and whether or not a few civilians ordered them, you know, to drive a competent family car.  8)

Pete,
Here’s another photo of a GT500 with the early tires on it setting in Max Curtis Ford showroom.

Thnx for the clarification on the 70’s,…I always wondered how much aggravation it took to redo the dash VIN tag.
Now we know.
