Wanted to Buy / 1968 Shelby Junction Block, Original Design
« on: March 08, 2023, 02:00:56 PM »
Correct electrical junction block used on 1968 GT 500KR. (mounts on the inner fender)
I believe the original design used a Bakelite material. (Very fragile stuff)
(my original is split at one of the mounting holes)
I’m searching for a correct junction block for my restoration.
Any information is appreciated.
Thank you

Added a photo of my original (split)

Thank you!
This information is exactly what I needed.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 1968 Shelby Console Cover Latch Assistance
« on: January 24, 2023, 09:22:29 PM »
I’m looking for sources for a console lid latch.
My console is missing the latch that attaches to base.
Looking for guidance on what is missing, and any leads on part sources.
Attached are 2 photos that show the lid with latch, and the base that is missing mating part.

Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you

Greatly appreciate the comments! SAAC Forum is awesome!
If I can find decent NOS handles, I’ll consider them, or just continue with getting mine chromed at Paul’s Chrome.

Thank you.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Interior Door Handle: restoration question
« on: December 04, 2022, 02:06:32 PM »
Thoughts on rechroming originals Vs going the aftermarket path.

I was inspecting my original handles today, in preparation for taking a batch of parts off to the chrome shop. My handles are beyond just doing a good polish..
I realized there is a roll pin that needs to come out. Best way to do that without damaging the handle is to carefully drill it out using an end mill. Then get the 2 parts chromed and reassemble with a new roll pin.

It’s a little bit of extra work, and cost to have them rechromed.
Worth the effort, or are the best reproductions that good, or just a “semi-decent” copies?

Thank you

Thank you. 
Makes perfect sense.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Front Bumper Bracket, function of welded tab?
« on: November 12, 2022, 02:40:39 PM »
tubular bumper bracket question:
The service replacement brackets have small tabs welded about 4 inches from the end (see photo)
I don’t recall these being on the production line bumper brackets. right?

What is the purpose of these “tabs”?
Thank you.

Wanted: S8MS 16098-G,  1968 Shelby 428 CobraJet Fender Emblem. Qty 2.
NOS very good condition.

Acsco directly sourced, will also be considered, if colors are correct.
It is my understanding that Acsco did much, if not all of the emblem and trim design & manufacturing for the later years.
Thank you.
