'67 AR or AM bottom leaves
« on: September 14, 2019, 08:28:39 PM »
Looking for a nice pair of bottom leaf springs for a 1967 Shelby with AR stamping

Hoping for date in the last quarter of 1966 or the first couple months of 1967.

With permission, I have posted pictures of Bob's listing (which I did not see in time) to show a nice February '67 pair.

Thank you Bob.

Hello, i have full pair of excellent original 67GT500 rear springs, fully stamped with matching curvatures. However, they were taken from a late production car.
Would they be of any use?
My email is faulknerstevens@btinternet.com
Thanks
Alan

Thank you Alan,

I have never installed NOS springs so I really don't need the full spring pack.

My car left San Jose in the first few days of February 1967, probably not close on dates.

+1

So likely from a Mustang built between Dec 67 -March 68 or so looking at documented findings of unrestored cars

It's funny how there are some parts in this hobby that are just plain tough to find.  Correct leaf spring bottoms with correct dates are definitely one of them.  Obviously it's a super small detail, but to someone trying to return their car to 'correct, as released from Shelby American' condition, it's important.  I can't imagine many folks kept their original leaf springs when they replaced them way back then.  I'm sure the big dogs hit most if not all the major junk yards already looking for parts like these.  That must have been a fruitful endeavor back in the late '80s/early '90s.
