You are welcome. But the G.T. 350 emblem must never be removed beyond the seal...

"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

And.......the plot thickens faster than the mesa flour in a Carroll Shelby chili kit. See below for details.

I say buy them all and set them up on a rolodex rotisserie on the taillight panel so you can flip to a different one each day depending on one's mood. And maybe a measuring tape in a small glass box strapped to the bumper that reads: "In case of emergency, break glass."
For the record I have the one like the eBay link and the 4.5 incher with no dimples as well. The slightly shorter one is presently on big red. Now considering my rolodex idea. Maybe I have chosen poorly.

Found these photos on my old computer.  I saved them from the crash of SAAC 1.0.

Thanks for posting!  I didn't see these posted prior, and they are very helpful.

I had purchased the middle painted one from Craig Conley, So I dont question its originality. So not sure if I remember from the old forum if the 65 plates were larger than the 66s but I believe the sensus was that the smaller one was correct for the 66 as all my research was for 6s1902

I'm curious.  I've heard that repops have a flattered surface on the black painted portions of the "G.T. 350", and originals have more of a curved surfaced on the black painted portions.

Anyone know if this is true?
