Appeals / Seeking Drag Racing Photos - Republic Ford Cars
« on: November 18, 2022, 05:07:13 PM »
I’m looking for any drag racing photos of cars sponsored by Republic Ford back in the 60s.

The unicorn would be finding a picture of a 1966 Shelby that was drag raced by Walter Ballard between 1966 and 1968 (he went on to race in NASCAR in the 70s).

Thanks in advance!

Appeals / Help Identifying a 1966 GT350
« on: November 16, 2022, 11:51:17 PM »
I was going through some pictures that came via 6S141’s previous owner, and I found the following two pictures.

I’d like to see if the red 1966 GT350 can be identified based on the license plate “Valina”. These pictures were taken in 1984 at a Shelby Swap Meet and Car Show. These might have been taken in Illinois, as the prior owner of 6S141 lived near Champaign, IL at the time.

The second photo shows the tail end of a white 67 Shelby, and it could be the owner (at the time) sitting in the lawn chair behind the car.

Please let me know if you have any ideas - thanks!

Wow!  It looks great - thanks for sharing!

And it really great that they sent you a video of it up and running.  Supremely helpful.

Thanks for sharing this, Brant!

To add some more information - this is my Carryover (6S141).  I had the work completed by a gentleman who specializes in this type of treatment.  He's located in the Boerne TX area just north of San Antonio.

Please feel free to PM me if you'd like his contact information.  The owner (Kyle) is a supremely knowledgeable, professional, and all-around great guy.  I couldn't be happier with the results, and I could not give him a higher level of recommendation!

Thanks again!

I just connected with Phil via phone. He has recently changed his email, so make sure you have his “gmail” address if you need him.

I just tried to email Phil Severance (he restores tachs), but the email address I have (from 2019) kicked back.

Does anyone have Phil’s current email / contact info?

Posting for a friend:

Looking for a distributor body with a dual point breaker plate (points, cam, and shaft - no gear needed). No vaccum advance, cap, rotor or wires needed, but would take them.


Parts For Sale / 2 Original 1967 Shelby Magstar Wheels
« on: October 13, 2022, 11:58:43 PM »
2 original 1967 Shelby Magstars. These two 15x7 wheels came off an original 1967 Shelby. There is some corrosion on the chrome, but the wheels are true.

Each wheel comes with its original center cap. Kelsey Haynes stampings are all present, and the centers are in great shape.

$350 each plus shipping.

I saw a brand new GT500 on a local lot (small dealer).  The car had a similar MSRP, and they had an ADM of 10K.  I think it depends on where the dealer is located.
