Appeals / Seeking Drag Racing Photos - Republic Ford Cars
« on: November 18, 2022, 05:07:13 PM »
I’m looking for any drag racing photos of cars sponsored by Republic Ford back in the 60s.

The unicorn would be finding a picture of a 1966 Shelby that was drag raced by Walter Ballard between 1966 and 1968 (he went on to race in NASCAR in the 70s).

Thanks in advance!

Appeals / Help Identifying a 1966 GT350
« on: November 16, 2022, 11:51:17 PM »
I was going through some pictures that came via 6S141’s previous owner, and I found the following two pictures.

I’d like to see if the red 1966 GT350 can be identified based on the license plate “Valina”. These pictures were taken in 1984 at a Shelby Swap Meet and Car Show. These might have been taken in Illinois, as the prior owner of 6S141 lived near Champaign, IL at the time.

The second photo shows the tail end of a white 67 Shelby, and it could be the owner (at the time) sitting in the lawn chair behind the car.

Please let me know if you have any ideas - thanks!

I just tried to email Phil Severance (he restores tachs), but the email address I have (from 2019) kicked back.

Does anyone have Phil’s current email / contact info?

Parts For Sale / 2 Original 1967 Shelby Magstar Wheels
« on: October 13, 2022, 11:58:43 PM »
2 original 1967 Shelby Magstars. These two 15x7 wheels came off an original 1967 Shelby. There is some corrosion on the chrome, but the wheels are true.

Each wheel comes with its original center cap. Kelsey Haynes stampings are all present, and the centers are in great shape.

$350 each plus shipping.

Crazy story. A good friend of mine works for Red McCombs Ford in their corporate office. Given the history of Hemphill-McCombs Ford (which is now solely owned by the Red McCombs Family - Red still comes into work at age 93!), I asked my buddy if he’d check around and see if there were any dealer emblems from back in the day lying around (aka, needle in a hay stack).

Well, my buddy reached out to Red’s secretary (who has been with Red since the 60s!) to no avail. Last week, the secretary came knocking on my buddy’s office door, held out the attached and said, “Is this what you’re looking for?”  Wow!! This thing is in mint condition - never been mounted! The best part? The secretary said that this was one that Red himself had held onto for decades. Amazing.

Now, if only I could find one for University Ford in Champaign, IL for my Carryover!

1965 GT350/R-Model / 1965 Shelby GT350 Intake Differences
« on: July 21, 2020, 06:27:49 PM »
I'm looking for some help.  I did some research online (and on the forum), and I can't find pictures or references to (what I'm led to believe) are three different versions of the 1965 GT350 small letter intakes:

- Early GT350 Intake
- Later GT350 Intake
- R Model Intake

Also, were the same intake(s) used on the small block Cobras?

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 1967 Thermactor Hose Clamps
« on: May 09, 2020, 11:32:31 PM »
I’ve looked high and low for two clamps, but I cannot locate them.

The first one is attached to the top of the AC unit and holds a Thermactor hose (lower red circle), and the assembly manual lists is as “376906-S”. However, I couldn’t find an AMK reference in their “Ford Fasteners” book, and I’ve tried looking online, but to no avail. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

And, the top red circle shows what looks like a clamp holding an AC hose, but it’s listed as “37776876-S”. Again, I can’t find a reference.


1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 1967 Shelby AC Drain Hose / Carpet
« on: May 04, 2020, 04:39:42 PM »
I saw some pictures online, and it dawned on me that I've never confirmed the correct installation / routing of 1967 factory AC drain hose located at the bottom of the evaporator box.

Can someone please confirm that the attached picture is correct (i.e., the drain hose goes through the carpet to the floor hole on the passenger side versus the carpet resting over / against the drain hose)?
