Up For Auction / Mecum 68 Shelby GT500 article on Hot Rod website
« on: July 22, 2022, 05:22:21 AM »
Why can't authors ever get their facts straight? Not all authors but MOST when it comes to automotive historical articles. This one is no exception. https://www.motortrend.com/features/1968-shelby-gt500-fastback-mecum-auctions-harrisburg/?wc_mid=4035:23353&wc_rid=4035:1886389&_wcsid=5222838722F4482D6EB5C7420A94B3ABB27D575CC6ADECE0

So lets start with the rear blackout. This car was a later F-60-15 car that was an executive used car in 1969. Bill Cook's dad. It has the quarter sail emblems, F-60-15s but look at the black out. It isn't on the end caps. So has other original paint or period correct pics of cars show this variance? Is it OK in judging not to have those endcaps painted black since the proof is at least one was done and since this is just a random chance of pic taking more than one? pics in link. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bossmustang/3034105505/in/album-72157609178437688/

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Header brackets
« on: June 24, 2022, 03:59:13 PM »
Here are some header brackets for mounting the front header panel to the core support. The middle unpainted ones I'm pretty sure are originals. The one on the top I'm pretty sure is a repo. What is up with the one on the bottom? My friend bought it and the seller said it was an original. Bolt doesn't thread into it, no angled off edges and appears shorter than the other 2 in the slots in reference to the rest of the bracket. Thanks. Gary

Original paint. Same owner since 1970. Real nice guy. Ran into him at the motor muster. If anyone wants pics of this car please let me know ASAP and I'll shoot what you want.  Gary

Does anyone restore these? I'm sure my original one is hiding in a box somewhere and would like it restored. Or does anyone have these NOS? Thanks. Gary

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / shock tower clip
« on: June 10, 2022, 06:53:08 AM »
While looking over John Guyer's original survivor 68 KR vert I noticed no clip or hole for a clip on pass side shock tower for the Shelby wiring. Is this a KR thing? Clip for reference. Hole for reference in pics below. Thanks.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Battery tie down bracket
« on: May 07, 2022, 06:58:57 AM »
Now that we have established that some 69s they installed a "L" bracket late in production and screwed it to the 69 battery apron what is the Judging guidelines for these brackets? Were they only used on group 27 cars? Was there a service bulletin where earlier group 27 cars would have been fitted with the L bracket when in service? Installed before sold(if unsold when the bracket started being used)? So is a GT500 or a GT350 with the group 27 deemed concours acceptable to have that L bracket screwed to the 69 Apron regardless of when the car was produced? Thanks. Gary

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Battery apron
« on: May 02, 2022, 06:59:24 AM »
While going through my pics of cars I came across a file I had marked Thoroughbred 69 Mach1(Dearborn car by the detailing). This car had a "1970" apron on it. Car has the upper cowl blacked out and the later pass side fender apron(ribbed). Now were any of those battery reinforcement aprons used in 1969 production? Was it first used in 1970 when they started up production? I know this is a Mustang pic(s) but I'm trying to find out if this happened in Dearborn  as it would transcend into Shelbys built of course See pics below

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Thanks

I want to thank all of you who responded for my want ads for 68 parts. I never would have guessed there were that many nos and good used parts out there still. Seraphim has bought a lot off of our forum members and found more at major swap meets. His goal is to have one of the nicest 68 GT350 verts when it is done. It will be nice putting the car back together but i will NOT be the one putting the NOS hubcaps on the car. ;D ;D. Gary

Do the 68s use the RWB bolts or the plain bolts like 1969-70.

1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Battery Apron
« on: February 16, 2022, 05:59:52 AM »
So the 1970 battery apron has been the service part for 69-70 Mustangs for as long as I remember even carrying a stenciled C9 part number. So was the 1970 style with the revamped apron with the screw hole for the battery tie down bracket ever used on 69s? Late in production? I know my May 6 built car doesn't have one(original apron) and I don't recall my June built GT500 having one either. Thanks.

If a GT350 with 4 speed and air was ordered with a HD battery would that be the group 27? Non air GT350s got the group 22 then the HD would be the 24. Was the 24 standard with the air cars and HD bring you up to a 27? Thanks.

Shelby on BaT has this column in it. Isn't a 69, correct?
