« on: September 07, 2023, 09:27:02 PM »
Just saw an ad for ABC's the Golden Bachelor show using a gold 68 vert. They blocked out the rocker stripes. Anybody know who's this is?

Up For Auction / 66 owners manual
« on: March 29, 2021, 04:52:31 PM »
Does this look original / 2nd printing? Cover looks correct,  page with the car diagram has the hole punch circle in the lf wheel. Usually I've seen that on the opposite page in the text.
"optional" text looks correct

Not a shelby but I'm looking for someone who could pick up a 1942 ford GPW jeep tub and parts in Davenport Iowa and bring to Leesburg, Virginia and what the cost would be. No frame or wheels not rolling, the body tub and loose parts. weighs about 400 - 500 lbs

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / cowl replacement
« on: November 08, 2020, 11:01:57 PM »
I was asked if I replaced the cowl hats on my 66  without completely taking the cowl apart and I did. The car has a pretty good body, but there were some areas needing attentiom. I got the idea from one of Brets threads where I  saw Jeremy cut a side of the upper cowl off to access the hats to clean and prime and remove any rust.

First thing I did was carefully cut the hump / side  area under where the fender bolts on, as well as drill out about 15 spot welds,  and save the piece for reinstalling later. I hoped I would only have to blast and clean but I decided I had to replace the hats and a minimal amount of the bottom of the cowl. I flipped the car over, while standing in the windshield opening, drilled out the spotwelds for the hats and carefully cut a ring which I used for a pattern on the replacement cowl section.
I pre primed the hats before installation

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / hood bonding
« on: June 06, 2020, 10:50:23 AM »
Does anyone know the original style fiberglass shelby used to  bond the fiberglass hood to the metal frame.? My carryover has the cloth mat strips which I believe is original.  My 66 1127 has what looked like the chopped  glass all around the edges which could be original but is possible someone had redone some of it in the past.
My carryover is the black mat, 1127 is the blasted clean photo.

Wanted to Buy / Archway emblem
« on: May 23, 2020, 10:33:16 AM »
Still looking for an original Archway emblem but in the mean time I did some basic artwork and cut one out of chrome vinyl which will work until I find an original.
Needs some refining but I dont have to drill holes in my taillight panel

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Restoration progress
« on: May 18, 2020, 09:03:32 PM »
Having a litle more free time lately. I have spent countless hours massaging the original doors and fenders  for 1127 and those parts are ready for paint. Probably could have replaced them but I feel better with restored originals. I spent a tone of time working on the gaps and fit. I think I made them equal to or better then the factory.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Roof rail moulding rivets
« on: May 02, 2020, 11:45:09 PM »
Are these additional rivets correct for my 66 350? They are visible , not hidden by the weather strip track. They look possibly added  to tighten up the stainless trim. They are on both sides of the car mid roof. Spacing looks inconsistent left to right.  I have another 66  that does not have them. Were they added as a warranty tsb type issue?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Driving lessons
« on: January 30, 2020, 08:46:03 PM »
So thanks to Vern and Bob I bought a carryover a couple years ago.
This past fall I let the 14 1/2 year old daughter begin to learn to drive a stick, which some of the neighbors got a kick out of. Enjoyable time for both of us.
