1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Re: 68 GT350 Tilt Away Vacuum Hose Routing
« on: February 14, 2021, 10:28:24 PM »
On my 68 500 vert (auto & a/c) this is where it routes:

Looking over the carb toward the cowl, there is a hole in the firewall below and between the driver side export brace holes/bolts; This is where the larger vac hose comes through.

Under the passenger side outer export brace hole/bolt is a firewall hole that the smaller hose routes through.

Hopefully this description will help you.  This matches other similarly equipped cars I compared.

Doesn't the 1968 Registry include specification for the distance/gap at the bottom of the stripe, as well as the fender placement??

Foreground has a 66 Mustang convertible on the left; a 66 Fairlane Country Squire station wagon in the center; a 66 Falcon coupe on the right.

In the shadowed background is a much older pickup.

That's the way I see it.

Maybe reflections from the low angle of the sun?

We missed last fall, but are happy to hear you are planning for another in 2021.  Anxious to have on our calendar.   Heard many great reviews from last fall!

red lettered battery;
radio static tab at cowl is not bent into seal.

Sure wish that cowl label was legible.

Gotta love photos like this.  Thanks for the enhancement!

A used one will have staple holes that aren't likely to line up with your staple holes; each is different due to human installation.  A few were clipped on which we speculate was because the staple machine wasn't working at that point in time.

Reproductions are close.  NOS are very hard to find and expensive.

It will probably help to get correct responses if you specify which year/interior.
