Looking for a Autolite carb to suit a 1966 K code 4 speed must be correct carb for the K codes with manual choke . Thanks

I am currently restoring and road testing a proper C6ZF-C carburetor for Sam, who is the poster here this thread.


As far as I am concerned Sam got very lucky to find Fred.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: Battery replacement options
« on: April 22, 2019, 11:24:39 AM »

Bob, this is the same battery from Home Depot that I have had in my 66 for almost 2 years.  So far it works great...


I just went through this on my 65 convertible.  I went with an Exide from Home Depot.  The biggest problem was finding a battery with recessed filler caps/vents.  The battery topper fits it well.  The other bonus is it has the correct "foot" to work with the 65/66 battery hold down.  There may be other options for the 68's.  I can't remember what I have in the 68.  I'll check it when I get a chance.

Based upon what I have heard Jeff Speegle would be a good place to start. His knowledge base is amazing. Good luck in your search.

Exactly what I was thinking and if I am not mistaken he lives in N.CA.

And, kudos to SAAC for being one of the first marque clubs to actively call out bogus/air cars!

Exactly, and lets not forget about the great Shelby ďinspectorsĒ that are on this site and we all canít forget the number of times that everybody recommends to get an expection before buying.

Sorry to bother you with this question as I think I know the answer, however my soon to be ex-friend (just teasing) wonít let it go. 

 Was there ever a 65 Shelby GT350. "Automatic".  A friend says that he heard from another friend that a former Shelby employee had on built.

Someone here must know if there was one or even could be one.  Thanks - Doug

I have no idea why GM did not use one or more of their own cars - it is not unusual for companies to use competition in ads.  I am just saying that I donít believe that the cars were there by accident and unseen by the GM marketing and ad people.

It donít think it was a mistake... marketing people most likely felt that by showing the Mustang and Crown Vic (iconic cars to some) will translate into believing the Cadillac is iconic as well.  This is just my opinion and years of dealing with marketing types.

   You might want to look at it's history a bit. How cool to know it was owned by Carol Connors who wrote Hey Little Cobra?  It has a VERY recent complete drivetrain overhaul . I assisted the owner with the original engine  rebuild and I rebuilt the original aluminum T10 converting it to "no pop" ( out of gear) status , and rebuilt the original diff too. The flares and paint were done by a previous owner , not the current owner, who is a '65 GT350 ( original owner) as well.
This car has been on several Cobra 1,000 tours and has never been a DNF. Flairs and paint can be changed , history can not.
     Respectfully ,
       Randy Gillis

Randy, love that you brought out the history and truth of this car.  Thanks
