Am i correct that this hole in the upper trunk rail area should not be here.   Just want to confirm before body guy fills it. 

Owned car since Ď79 and i didnít put it there.  Canít imagine why anyone would.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / VIN Tag on Cowl
« on: May 05, 2021, 01:31:08 PM »
Car is headed to media blaster and I'd like to hear thoughts/comments from experts about removing the VIN tag from cowl.

And are there particular rivets that are used to reattach the VIN ?  This is a 70 model so the VIN tag so I'm not sure if that meant a specific rivet was used during the re-VIN process.

The fellow doing metal work says he commonly removes/replaces VIN tag.  He specializes in 65-70 mustangs and has worked on a number Boss 429/302 and Shelbys in the past.   He's advising it's a non-issue to remove VIN tag for safe keeping while car is being blasted/primed/painted.   I trust him...but want to verify.

If this is standard practice,  I'll remove tag myself before delivering car.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1970 GT500 carb date
« on: October 21, 2020, 10:21:56 AM »
For the 1970 Gt500 automatics cars:   During the 69-to-70 conversion,  was the existing "born-with" carb modified...or rather was a replacement carb swapped out in place of the original carb ?

My understanding is the distributor was a swap-out scenario, but I can't seem to specifics on how the carb mod was executed (i.e. carb swap vs. carb mod).   

Knowing this would help me determine appropriate date code for my 02/28/69 built 70 GT500 auto.   Trying to determine whether to be in the ballpark of a 91_ date versus 97_ date.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Door pull cups
« on: November 23, 2019, 06:59:45 PM »
What are opinions of repop door pull cups vs original ?  Both mine are busted at the typical weak spot. Wonder if repops might be equal or better than original (durability wise).  If not Iíll chase down some originals.   >edit> I now understand the difference length between 69 and 70 pull cups.

Iím soon sending door panels to Gene Painter and want to send a good set of pulls.  So looking for advice.

Anyone have tips/method/suggestion for way to remove rear fastback glass without damaging the rubber window seal?   If possible, id like to save/reuse the original rubber seal.

Looking at it,  wondering if better to pull glass out of seal (somehow) or perhaps possible to pull glass and seal together.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Shifter handle restoration ???
« on: March 26, 2019, 05:49:31 PM »
Any recommendations for place/person that restores 69/70 auto shifter handle?

Wondering if the 69/70ís 500s typically had N or non-N carrier

Also curious about typical date codes. Mine currently has 8D24 dated, non-N nodular carrier in car built Feb 69.  Seems a bit early for carís build date (10 months ?).

Back in the early Ď80ís used to swap in/out various 3rd members in the car   Wondering if I might have lost track of the original over the years.  Hoping I had the correct one the car as I was selling off all my extra parts 30 years ago.
