My 6s 409 got a fantastic stereo system, from a stereo shop next to Galpin ford , got some nice 500 cfm competition carters at Service center down the street, and then got some turbo mufflers at Super Shops down the street from there. In the 1970s these cars were just throw away used up Hot Rods,but we loved them just the same, and loved showing off what we had. I still enjoy anything vintage that takes me back to that time frame. ;D

Yeah man!  Mad Man Muntz's stereo shop was next door to Galpin Ford.
Rock on!

If you can listen to stereo in your Shelby, your exhaust sucks! Haven't heard my radio in the '66 for decades as the each time I tried the speaker paper ripped. I am just relegated to a good dual point downbeat with solid lifter accents and tail pipe harmony. 8)

To make matters worse... Or better- depending how you see things, I installed a full boogie 69 boss 302 and 4 speed. My car was one of the first 66 automatics and everywhere I took it, everyone said that aint a real SHELBY everyone knows they came with 4 speeds. :-[ That did it in went the cool drivetrain and the rest is history. A rockin stereo for those times with your sweetie, or your rock and roll buddies, and the roar of Turbo mufflers with side exiting pipes to get your man groove on. ;)

Just take the 1977 Dodge "Shaggin' Wagon" with the tie dye t-shirt seat covers and 8 track sound machine for that adventure. ;D

Well,my car has a cassette deck in it now,would I get more points for an 8 track???(because I have one in my closet) Do I get extra points for the 6x9 speakers that a pot cut out the rear interior panels for? I already have a hurst shifter in it but will a novelty shift knob up my point total?  :o

Do it now...sometimes "LATER" becomes "NEVER"....

since no one has proposed a name for this prestigious class, may we offer the following name ;  Shelbys meant to be driven, CS class...
These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby
