Floor protectors (cardboard or paper?) and plastic seat covers!  That's not something I've ever noticed before.

Thanks again for sharing these photos.

Shelby needed something (though not complete or heavy duty) to at least minimize possible additional work and at least dirt/grease.

Unfortunately the sill plates were left exposed

Hello again...

i still do research on all sites, discover magazines and looking for the little breadcrumbs

on an old Car Life Special Edition Magazine i found a pic i never saw befor ...

Unfortuenally no exact Date was on the Cover ... only Copyright on 1965 was standing ...
so i must do some other research and for sure when the Special Editon is from Car Life so maybe do some
advertisment in his own monthly magazine...

i found several Advertisment for the Special Edition, the earlist was described to found the Special Edition
on 18. May 1965 ...

so the Pic was surley made befor ...

but lets have a look on the Pic ...





i found this very interessting ...

when i looked at this upper pic i am suggesting this one on the backside Carter Ave. Parking lot ...
you can see this Parking Edge bricks on the ground ...
the hole Place is a little bit hectic organised

on the foreground i think there are 2 GT350 R, maybe the first one every made ... the back panels are have this
enlarged darker aera which we all now from 5R001 and 5R002 ...

and on the backside we see the hole lot full of GT350 ... i think this should be the first produced in Carter Ave.
and i think are about 30 - 40 GT350īs

What you think about this ?
Do you agree with me or have opposite thoughts ...

Let me just know ...





Steve: I have that magazine...somewhere. I'll do some digging and see if I can locate it.
