Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Phil the cut off date at Smith was 15 December, before that date you probably had dual serial number plate originally

this may explain why the door tag is missing

Pete, is there mention on your site when they switched over from the "Shelby American" plate to the "Shelby Automotive" plate under the hood? Gary

I would like to believe the letters / numbers after the 428PI engine code specified the Shelby 428 only engine parts. So far documenting that is something that I have found no evidence for. Ford was a very process driven organization then. I expect there is documentation, it just needs to be found.



Bob,

Full size cars - i.e. Police cars - did not use the same oil pan as FE's that were going into either midsize or pony cars.


Looks great - One question I have always meant to ask Pete.

The PI cylinder heads are drilled for 8 bolt holes on the exhaust so they would not work on a Shelby 428. Also, the oil pan needed for the Mustang installation is not the same as the oil pan used for the Shelby. How did those parts get installed when the engine ID was the same as a 428 PI engine?

What do you think was different about the oil pan that was installed from Ford on the PI engine and the one you think was used on the Shelby?
Ok I thought you were inferring that AO Smith changed the oil pan. Sorry I assumed that you were aware that the engine code specifically designated how the engine was built.
