Hello Mike,

Here are some photographs of #2545 when I owned her.

These were taken shortly after the restoration was completed.

Congratulations! To a long and healthy retirement. Well earned!

Now, more time for your hobbies.

I am the former owner of #2545.

The owner at the time of her restoration by Jeff James and the team at Tri-City Mustang (and Shelby) Restorations and SAAC 36.

Here are a couple photographs of the engine compartment.


I used a set of stripes from Phoenix Graphix to replace the Lemans stripes on my 2007 GT-H.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Magstars, restore or reproductions
« on: July 01, 2018, 11:02:50 AM »
i have done both .... I had my original Magstars restored (re-rimmed) for Concours and I purchased a set of reproductions for radials (shakedown miles and driving). The appearance of the centers is subtlety different. If you are going Concours have the originals restored (re-rimmed).

My experience with the restored (re-rimmed) originals was that they leaked air until sealed using a black tar / rubberized material (not visible when the tire is mounted). The a couple of the restored (re-rimmed) originals also took quite a bit of weight to balance. That may have been due to running reproduction polyglas tires or the fact that I had the tire shop orient the valve stem to the tire lettering aligned the same on all tires.

The reproductions with radial tires took almost no weight addition to balance. Yes, I had the valve stem aligned to tire letting aligned the same on all tires with the reproduction Magstars and radials too. If you are going to run radials, drive aggressively .... I would recommend: go with the reproductions.

There are only 20 cars in the photograph. Is there a list of the vehicles posted somewhere? I'd like to know what the other 4 cars are.
