SAAC Forum Discussion Area / 2023 MCACN
« on: October 19, 2023, 09:27:54 AM »
We are returning to MCACN this year with our black, Premiere, '68 GT500 convertible Division I car for their Best of 1968 feature.  It sounds like it will be a really strong presence this year for Fords.
Another historical Shelby "unveil" is rumored.  Who knows??

Looking forward to seeing folks there, along with some great cars.  Pack a bag and be there!

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Tom Corcoran - RIP
« on: April 23, 2023, 10:43:47 PM »
Forgive me if this was mentioned previously; I don't think so.

Tom Corcoran, editor of Mustang Monthly Magazine back in the late 80's, as well as author of several Mustang and Shelby books, passed away back in February of this year.  He was an acclaimed fiction writer, having published a series of Alex Rutledge character novels (which are very fun reads).  Tom also co-wrote songs that are Jimmy Buffett classics, and was a photographer for JB over several years.  A naval officer, a bartender, a father, and a great guy.  Tom owned a '67 Shelby.

I had the pleasure of knowing Tom.  RIP

Maybe after market part?

Thank you for your input.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Researching GT500 smog belt--NO a/c ? ?
« on: March 27, 2022, 04:57:28 PM »
I'm familiar with the GT500 smog belt used with a/c, however I am trying to find out what belt was used in the factory application without a/c.  My final version of the Ford MPC doesn't list one.  What about the first version?  Might someone have an original example?
Interested in your knowledge/experience with this application.

Thanks for your input.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 1967 steel wheel identification
« on: January 15, 2022, 09:23:11 AM »
Do we have a topic to identify '67 steel rims/wheels--much like the superb '68 topic??

If so, I'm missing it.  If not, could some '67 folks put together that information?

Thank you.

SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Anyone recognize this trunk mat?
« on: December 29, 2021, 09:01:05 AM »
It has much darker (charcoal grey--almost black) bristle type fabric.  Hole for gas filler neck is 6" on center from rear edge, much like a 1969 gas tank dimension.

Appreciate your help identifying it.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 68 steel wheels
« on: August 07, 2021, 11:54:07 PM »
In case some of you are shopping for correct 15x6 steel wheels, be sure that they have air vent slots like pictured.

Also, if a Ford service label is still on the wheel, it will be a C8A #.

While searching to find the television schedule for the upcoming Barrett-Jackson AZ auction, it appears that these long awaited documentaries will be broadcast at various times over a few days.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 1967 Shelby steel wheel identification
« on: February 19, 2020, 09:40:01 PM »
Excellent topic Pete.
May I suggest someone post a topic on the 67 steel wheels.  My limited experience is that the vent slots are shaped differently.
