2006-up Shelby GT/GT-H / 2006 Shelby Hertz - Body signatures
« on: January 19, 2022, 01:51:28 PM »
 
     I`am doing a survey of how many 06` Hertz cars have signature on the underneath frame rails or under members .  It appears that a D.Maze that was the inspector of the Shelby builds for Hertz .signed the rails near the cats & also some Shelby employees also left initials or signatures.    The story is that when Hertz & Shelby found out about it, they put an end to it . I`am not so sure I believe that story . What I do know is my  06 # 0159 has D.Maze on the right rail,  a HLT in faint pen on the left rail & an initial BC on bottom of the cross member.  I have reached out to the Shelby 2006 -2008 Gt & H club & have a few confirmed cars with signatures, with highest number being   0231. Any help with this would be appreciated .

                                                                                              Thanks
                                                                                                 Jim

Yeah, date on second row.(Thanks Pete, had to dig some out!). Either there is possibly more letters/numbers on his tag or not a normal tag layout??

Okay after seeing the photo `s of those posted I do have one, in my shop drawer & I`am sure it is similar, just  have to find it . The other one was with a spare coil Thanks for helping me

It says either your tag (or entire engine) is not correct if you have a 1968 Shelby.

Shelbys used the "405 J04" or "405 J05" Engine code

The second line is a code for the motor and that code belongs to a 428 Super Cobra Jet engine.
Whats J04 & J05 mean

Isn’t “7D” the date code, which would be April ‘67??  That wouldn’t be an SCJ date.
Not sure if it is &D or 70 ?

« on: January 01, 2021, 01:57:10 PM »
Hi Shelby001,

Can we assume you are referring to the solid letter versions?  You did not say, but might be implied.  The open letter covers are not typically seen as over the counter.

I believe a forum member sold a used set recently for around $250, non fanged.  There is a NOS set on auction, PCV hole is post fang, pre-keyhole for $600.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1965-1970-Ford-Mustang-GT350-289-302-351W-Cobra-Valve-Covers-Pair-NOS/324342935064?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225074%26meid%3D33faf80c095b418493752ef8579cc574%26pid%3D100012%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D164456455027%26itm%3D324342935064%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLCvipPairwiseWebWithBBEV2bDemotion%26brand%3DFord&_trksid=p2047675.c100012.m1985

There is a used set, PCV key hole for $349 and the same sytle NOS for $325, both did not sell.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-1967-1968-1969-1970-Shelby-Mustang-ORIGINAL-NOS-039-COBRA-039-VALVE-COVERS-/154236688293?hash=item23e93917a5%3Ag%3APfMAAOSwWZlfxE%7EX&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=O%252FC7gGkEYbBmKnrBlfAHZM8LWOs%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

A matching PCV hole fanged set sold for $295.  Missing oil fill side.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1966-1970-Ford-Mustang-GT350-289-302-351W-Cobra-Valve-Covers-Pair-/324296450185?hash=item4b81932089%3Ag%3AfvsAAOSwzqJfYShF&vxp=mtr&nma=true&si=O%252FC7gGkEYbBmKnrBlfAHZM8LWOs%253D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

As S2MS says, which version can make a difference, but patients can get you an assembly line version for less money than a later style NOS set.  The open COBRA lettered covers are a different story.  NOS sets are rarely seen.  Which style are you asking about?

Best of luck

Cory            They are like the first photo . Thanks for the info. Love this SAAC site so many knowledgeable people  Thanks Again

    Okay finally got the nuts loose after soaking & heat. For anyone replacing these the originals have two sleeves that are rolled at each end & in order to get them off you need carefully grind the lip off .
