Wanted; '67 headlight trim rings
« on: August 19, 2018, 02:15:54 PM »
Looking for OEM Shelby headlight trim rings.

Consider anything from NOS to restorable, but no hopeless rings please.

San Jose build in early February, LAX finished in early April 1967.

just to be clear, you're looking for the four chromed trim rings that go "around" the fender and grille lights - not the early car body colored ones on the fender head lights and the semi-gloss-ish black ones that go "around" the grille head lights OR are you looking for the stainless rings (head light doors) that hold the bulbs to the buckets?

Correct JD. what are on the car now are what I believe to Branda repops from the mid to early 90's.

Yes, Chrome rather than black or body color. (Though I know I may have to restore)

Are the originals die-cast potmetal like those bigger diameter rings found on non-Shelbys (recessed backside with factory insignia) or some form of stamped metal to be painted/chromed later?
