1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Cobra Oval Air Cleaner Help Please
« on: September 29, 2021, 11:03:04 AM »
The COBRA air cleaner lid Brandosaac is asking about appears to be an original early ‘67 sand cast lid that at some point a hole was drilled in the center so it could be used on a single 4v application.  The base is definitely an original ‘68 single 4v base.

Wanted to Buy / Re: Tasca Ford License plate frame

I know this isn’t the license plate frame, but I have a TASCA dealership plate that I found years ago.  I am not sure of the exact age.

The wheel pictured appears to be an original K-H MagStar.  To be correct for a 1967 Shelby it will need to be 15"x7" with a 4.5" lug pattern.  Kelsey Hayes sold that style wheel for many applications including GM products and offered it in 14", 15" with various widths and backspacing.

Parts For Sale / NOS 1967 SHELBY GT500 PCV HOSE -Hard to find
« on: September 18, 2021, 01:15:46 AM »
This is a very hard to find NOS 1967 Shelby GT500 428PI PCV Hose. This hose runs from the passenger side valve cover PCV valve to the nipple at the front of the air cleaner base (as pictured). The length of hose is 20”, enough for one car.  This is a rare original assemblyline ribbed hose that I received from Jim Cowles years ago.  $250.00 + shipping.  PayPal Friends and Family

Thanks for looking,

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 1967 GT500 windshield washer bag reservoir

One more thing to note, with age and after the washer bag has been used, they seem to shrink.  The new bags, early and late service, all measure approximately 10"x10" and all the used samples I have and seen seem to be approximately 3/4" to 1" difference, from the nos samples, all the way around.  My guess would be because of the cloth material on the backside that would make them shrink in addition to the heat of the engine.  With age and use they become somewhat distorted.

Do the assembly line bags have the "D" screened on lower LH corner?
The assembly-line washer bags and early service bags I have samples of, do have the “D” silkscreened on them at the lower left.  I can’t say for sure if all assembly-line and early service washer bags have the “D”, but the later service bags do not.

I hope this helps answer your question about the different styles of washer bags.  If I missed anything or something needs to be added, please feel free to chime in.

The backside of the original Ford washer bag compared to the reproduction bag.  The reproduction is similar to the early service replacement style, but is not the same as any of the Ford bags.

The washer bag lids are typically the same from assembly-line style to later Ford service replacement.  The direction of the production marks in the aluminum lid may vary a bit, but overall the lids are basically the same on all the Ford washer bags.

The reproduction washer bag lid has a completely different appearance as you can see in the pics.

The silk screened FORD writing on the front of the washer bag is typically faint even when the washer bag is new.  The original assembly line style all the way to late service washer bags use the same silk screening format and are identical.

The reproduction bags have a very bright silk screen appearance and the layout on the reproductions is different than original.

Another difference from the assembly-line, early service, and later service washer bags is the nozzle at the base of the washer bag. 

The assembly-line / early service replacement are identical in appearance and the later service replacement is very different.

The bottom picture is that of a reproduction washer bag nozzle.
