1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Firewall Pad Stamping?
« on: May 10, 2021, 10:16:48 AM »
On the back side of the firewall pad, I found a number/letter combination pressed into the insulation. It looks like 6 B. Anyone out there have any ideas what this impression represents? Thanks.

Has anyone out there performed repairs on their firewall pad? My has broken apart in two places. One where the steering wheel column goes through it, and another piece has separated just below there. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, Denny   

Parts For Sale / 1966 Seatbelt Leather Pads
« on: February 12, 2021, 06:05:43 PM »
I replaced the leather pads on my Ray Brown seat belts today.
I had a premier leather shop make the new pads using my originals as the template. The new leather pads have been precisely cut to the exact measurements of the originals, using the same weight leather too. Same color, black finish on the top, natural leather on the bottom. See photos.

While they were filling my order, I asked them to make a few extras just in case any of you Forum members out there are missing one, or have the need to replace both of yours.

I'm asking $20 each, $35.00 a pair, shipped free in continental U.S.A. If you're out of the country, please PM me and we'll see what we can do to get them to you.

If you would like me to attach them to your hardware, you'll need to send your belt to me. I'll reattach the leather using the same tubular rivets that were used on the originals. I'll need to charge a little extra for my time and materials, plus return postage to you.

Please PM me through the Forum if you're interested. Limited quantity.

Thanks, Denny



SAAC Forum Discussion Area / What's in Leo Beebe's left hand?
« on: December 12, 2020, 11:20:38 AM »
In the SAAC 2020 annual magazine, there's a wonderful article on Leo Beebe. the article begins on page 46and runs through page 54. Thanks Rick Kopec for this interesting historical background and interview with Mr. Beebe.
On page 54 at the bottom right of the page, there's a photo of Beebe along with Ray Geddes and Carroll Shelby. In Beebe's left hand, he's holding a couple copies of something that appears to be titled GT-350 with the CS logo on top border.
Can any of you "Literature Collectors" identify what Leo's holding. Thanks, Denny

My copy of the 2020 Annual arrived here in South Carolina yesterday in the mail. I was waiting for someone to post the subject here on the Forum so I could say mine has arrived, but no one has yet. I'll be the first. Did you receive yours?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Identification Help Magnum 500
« on: May 18, 2020, 03:53:16 PM »
I'm looking for a little help to see if this is the correct Magnum 500 wheel for a Hertz car. It sure looks close, and the backspace is 3 3/8's as you can see from the one photo. However the stencil by Wheel Corp. is in the same location as my other wheels. Also this wheel has several stampings on the reverse side of the rim. None of my other wheels have this. This wheel has no "C" behind the 795 stamping. Thanks in advance, Denny

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Intake Question, Attention Cory and Dave
« on: March 24, 2020, 12:59:58 PM »
Hey Guys,
The other day Kieth and I were discussing intakes and we came back to the old thread that you guys worked on, to see if we could find an answer to our question, but didn't find it. goes, on the underside of our intakes, on one of the posts we both have castings that are OECO, and under that A W L.
Do you guys know what "the A W L" represents?
We both thought it was posted somewhere in the past, but we couldn't find it again.
On the other bottom post, my intake has two letters cast there, see photo, of F G.
Could those be an inspector's initials?
On Kieth's intake, the other post is blank.
Does anyone else have similar castings?
Thanks in advance, Denny

Carolina Region SAAC / NC/SC SAAC Meet at the National Mustang Museum
« on: October 05, 2019, 08:42:58 PM »
Attached is a link to some photos taken today at our Club's meeting.

Special thanks goes out to Steve Hall at the Mustang Museum for being such a gracious host. The Museum is just gorgeous, well worth a visit if you're in the Charlotte/Concord area. Only a mile up the road from the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Lots of very interesting cars on display, and walls filled with memorabilia. Do it if you get an opportunity.

Brian Glover conducted the Club meeting and shared some of his Shelby-Cobra collectables with the members. You'll see in the photos what an outstanding collection Brian has acquired over the years. Each item on the display has its own unique story and history. Where do find all this cool stuff? Thanks for sharing it with us!

Thanks to everyone in the Club who showed up to share their rides with us. Some really outstanding Shelbys were there again today. Woody bought his 67 GT-350 new and still enjoys it. How about that!  65's through 69's on hand today.
