1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: GT350 Block Number
« on: September 11, 2023, 07:01:17 PM »
No ..
Not all 67 350s had a VIN on their blocks...

And don't let anyone tell you different.

Did all 67 GT350ís have a vin on the transmission?

Yes...
Factory 4 Speeds did...
And unlike many transmissions VIN on Ford products, they are very easy to access....

When they opened they used forklift and platform. There is opening in roof to drop crane cable through and lift platform. Yes lots of krs but also many very significant others. 2 factory drag cars, only 66 Paxton automatic (carrolls personal) 8 69/70 drag pak convertibles all different colors, 66 hertz cars in every color and the only hertz kr


The factory 66 Paxton was a siginficant find.

I received a call from a gentleman in San Francisco that was going through a divorce.
He explained that he had parked a 66 Shelby years earlier in a parking garage in downtown San Francisco.

He told me it was a factory Paxton car and the only automatic.
They made 11 Paxton's and 10 were 4 speeds.
He said he owned the automatic and had it for years.
Within a week I met up with the gentleman and he showed me the car.  At that time I called Jim Cowles and he confirmed the numbers with Howard Pardee.
It was the lost automatic and the seller had photos of the car in magazines being road tested against 4 speeds from 1966.

I purchased #392 and in short time Ted wanted it in his unique collection.
Tim restored it and the rest is history..

It's an important part of Shelby history....

Actually....
I sold Ted the his first yellow 68 GT 500KR Convertible.
I had purchased it near Harper's Ferry in WV.
It was a 4 speed with AC and within a few months he asked if I could locate and purchase the rest of the vehicles.

It took about 2 1/2 years but I was able to track down all the yellow cars.
Nebraska, New Jersey and Michigan maybe...
The Nebraska KR was in a barn in this quiet town outside of Lincoln. 
I remember that day because the town and the area was similar to Mayberry on Andy Griffith.
The owner mentioned he really wanted a 65 GT 350 and maybe it was time to let the convertible go.

The last one was in Illinois and owned by a woman that worked for the airlines.
She was by far the most difficult to deal with.  Her Dad had left her the vehicle and even though she never used it, she was reluctant to sell.

Pete Disher was very helpful with this search and I was able to secure every car for Ted.

Every Shelby has a story behind it....

Thanks for posting the additional images of #2 Grille, in theory (to my understanding) this version never happened (outboard grilles with inboard mesh pattern material).

JD:  I bought an early GT 350 project about a month ago....
And I'm trying to sort out these grilles.
I received (5) ...Inboards/Outboards/Reproduction/Original...

Can you see how I could get confused?

LOL..!

I never drove it at night so it wasn't a big deal...

the mesh pattern in #1 is the correct mesh for outboard grilles.

The mesh in image #2 is the mesh pattern for inboard grilles.

Can you post a whole photo of grille #2?
