Good Day sfm5s081,
I have had numerous Holley carbs. rebuilt/reconditioned/restored by Drew P. including two or three Boss 302 original units. If you want high quality work and a good result he is the best option available today.
I have used Holley Carburetor (the company) to do a couple of carburetors for me because they are very close to where I live. In two cases carbs. came back without the original parts I sent. One was an original Boss 302 carb. that they replaced the base plate on that you will never find new or used.

Good Day Michael,
That is a beautiful 68 Shelby GT 500KR. I am curious if this car is original paint since it came from the original owner? The pictures show the paint to look really beautiful but the whole car appears to have been well cared for. Thanks for your time.

Wanted to Buy / WTB - 69 Original Rear Brake Drums (Found)
« on: December 05, 2023, 02:40:36 PM »
Looking for a set of original rear brake drums for an early January 69 Shelby. Need the 10 X 2 drums. My understanding is they could be marked KH or FOMOCO for a January 69 car.
Thanks for the help.

Hi Charles,
I just had KYClutch do three clutches and pressure plates for me. I actually visited their shop because it is not too far away. They "know" clutches and clutch components. Ask for Chris, he seems to be the "main guy" there.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: SAAC-48 National Convention
« on: January 30, 2023, 11:37:28 AM »
Good Day Eric,
I have been in your position before - should I take a car to the convention or just attend? I have done it both ways over the years. I enjoyed the convention in a much better way when I brought my car there. I felt like a participant instead of just a spectator when I took a car.
That said, I would advise doing very good pre-planning ahead for the event. Although your distance is not too extreme, I suggest trying to arrange to trailer the car to Pittsburgh. I went to the convention there in 2018(?) I believe. Once at the Host Hotel/Motel general area there will be a need for considerable driving - you will not miss out on getting seat time during the event. My reasoning, the 67 Shelby is so iconic these days, it cannot help to draw a lot of attention. Unfortunately attention can come in a good way or bad way. You have a very beautiful car and I am sure you enjoy sharing it with other enthusiasts. However, if you had anything bad happen traveling to/from the event or while at the event I am sure it would ruin the experience and your enjoyment of the convention.
Also, the car is 56 years old now. No matter how good the condition, any kind of minor or major problem/breakdown could turn into a very bad situation for you away from your local area. Just a flat tire or battery issue may be difficult to address on the road. If you have the opportunity to travel with some other friends going to the convention from your area it would be a big plus for you. Support, backup, additional cars/friends to help if needed is priceless when traveling.
I know SAAC and all involved with the convention work hard to make sure there is security for people and cars coming to the convention BUT it is the Owner's responsibility to use good judgement.
I would love to see your car in person at the convention. I love Shelbys and specifically 67's but would advise that you use the next five months to properly prepare to attend and give yourself the best possible chance of having a great time.
I hope to see you there!

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Restoration
« on: December 26, 2022, 11:07:43 AM »
Hi Rich,
I can highly recommend Jeremy Imming - Jeremy's Cars in Blue Grass, Iowa (near Davenport, Iowa) for restoration work on 67 Shelbys, either GT 350 or GT 500. He is great to work with and very knowledgeable on the finer details of 67 Shelbys. His paint work is excellent as well - not just the color but the details of primer, black out details and body color.

Wanted to Buy / WTB - 69 Shelby GT 350 Carburetor Spacer
« on: November 22, 2022, 02:46:45 PM »
All,
Looking for a correct, original carburetor spacer plate for a 1969 Shelby GT 350 351W 4V engine. I believe the correct spacer is dark phenolic material with a straight outlet on the back for PVC hose connection. If this is not the correct description for the correct part I would appreciate any additional details/information you can share.
This is for a mid-January built car. Thanks for your help.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: 67 Steering Wheel Restoration
« on: November 21, 2022, 09:52:41 AM »
Hi Bill,
In the past, Jeff Stephens has told me he does not do anything to the metal spokes or center hub part of the steering wheel. He will do some simple polishing on the spokes where they meet the wood (where the phenolic material joints the metal and wood) to improve appearance but nothing "metal working" like you describe.
