« on: April 21, 2022, 05:42:57 PM »
Ok, all of you early small block gurus. My machine shop is closing their doors. He is a great guy and offered me a set of 70 BOSS 302 heads and a 65 5 bolt 289, all standard and in good condition. My buddy needs the block for his 63 jeep.
What are these 5 bolts going for? TIA

Does anyone have a copy of the magazine or article on this cannonball shelby? It was a great "fictional" write up. Entertaining, made me jump in my 67 Gt500 and tear around town😆😁
Just want to read it again.

So, i am Part of another mustang thread.  This guy named Dave is constantly putting shelby down as a loser, who failed at EVERYTHING he touched. Not sure where the hatred is coming from but ive just about had enough of his rant and detailed what Shelby accomplished. He never has a rebuttle.
Here is one of his rants. ...

was lucky enough to grow up with all the great Muscle cars. There are so many false stories out there it is crazy. As far as Shelby he did absolutely nothing. He somehow fooled many for year. Holman Moody was the Ford backbone. When Shelby wanted to do the mustang Henry Ford II ask H&M to send one of the H&M Falcons to shelby so he would know how to build it. Gale Halderman did an interview just before his death and he confirmed that Shelby designed nothing on the Shelby either H&M or Ford. He was a car salesman and failed so bad that Henry Ford II pulled it all in house to Ford after the 66 run. Shelby could not get the Ford designed GT-40 to work but H&M did.

Even the AC cobra was not thought of by Shelby. The race team in Europe that ran the racing Falcons that H&M built also was first to put SBF in the AC Bristol not Shelby. All he ever did was copy others. He failed with Cobra, Mustang in U.S. Mustang Europa and Mustang Mexico. Failed with Chrysler, failed on his own. But somehow people worship him.
The Boss 429 was not a performance car in any way. It was the least cost for Ford to get the engine in NASCAR. They would not outrun a good 289 in quarter mile with their 13 sec. ET. They for sure did not handle. They had to cut price way down to even sell them. History is so distorted and not real.

I would have to say the GT40 from H&M would be my top pick. Would run forever did not have to wind 9,000 rpm was a torque monster.

You should watch the Gale Halderman videos and also talk to Lee Holman about the GT-40 before he passes.

Ford did all the engineering on their cars not some chicken farmer. He never had a wind tunnel and never had a mfg. facility. Ford owned 100% of the Shelby operation in California.

My 2 cents worth and can all be backed up by actual recordings of Ford and H&M people out there. If you think the movie about the GT-40 was real you are a head in the sand person. Ford came out and made statements and opened up the archives and pulled out all the original Ford designs. Their statement was they understood the film was for entertainment and not for history.

Had a friends niece over today. I was cleaning 3119 when they showed up. She flipped out when she saw the gt500!! She knew alot of details about our cars, i was impressed!
Took her around the block (8 miles). She had the time of her life!  She said the 67 shelby is her all time dream car. She has never seen one in person. She even got to drive a little. Rare opprtunity for both of us! She is only 17😎😎
