If you search YouTube for 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302- Unrestored Survivor a poster called Callaway Classics posted a nice video of a green undercarriage.

Up For Auction / Re: Last first gen GT350 up for auction

I just watched the video and remembered seeing it years earlier. I can't believe how bad it's become since then. The amount of new rust on the exterior is sad considering the fact the owner knew what he had and must have stored it outside and under a tarp to get so much under paint rust- actually looked cool 10yrs ago! A few more years left like that in a damp environment and there would be big holes everywhere so at least he's moving it onto someone who will hopefully store it better and do something with it.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Re: Original GT350 parts?

Great Info- thanks. It's interesting- I looked at the heh-bx mentioned on Dave Kee's chart and it says 65-66 but doesn't mention 1967 under that and more interestingly doesn't list any 67 hipo mustang trans tag ID- maybe they were all HEH-BX and he missed it in his chart.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / Original GT350 parts?
« on: January 29, 2024, 08:05:53 AM »
I may go with a buddy to look at a 67 GT350 in a few weeks for an initial look before he invests in a real inspection. I'm more familiar with GT500's so figured I'd ask for some info here:
1) I assume they came with toploaders- what's the ID on the tag (RUG...?).
2) Did they have SPEC rears and 31 spline axles?
3) Will the heads be cast with ""1967" versus 1966 on them (assuming they still have the two dots above the 289 and the 19/20 number on the ends)
Thanks in advance for the education.

Wanted to Buy / Looking for a 1070 blue "standard" mustang steering wheel
« on: January 26, 2024, 03:53:26 PM »
I am looking for a basic stock standard 1970 mustang steering wheel in original blue color (yes not so pretty blue lol). Doesn't have to be perfect but in good driver shape.  I don't see anyone with reproductions in anything other than black and don't think painting a wheel will hold up. If you have something PM me. Thanks.

Based on this picture and what you are saying it looks like a locker- you can see straight through. I learn something new every day- thanks for all the pointers.

The Lounge / Is this a locker, a posi, a standard open?
« on: January 17, 2024, 04:57:27 PM »
I recently had cobra auto remove what I thought was a locker with 4:11's from a 66 Shelby rearend (and I think they agreed) and had them put the original stuff back in. I figured I'd list it for sale on CL to get some funds back and based on these pictures a person told me it was a standard carrier. I don't want to mislead anyone. Can anyone confirm for me based on these pictures?

This is what the guy on CR emailed me: The Posi unit has beefy and deep cut bolt holes on the side. If your carrier was a posi of any kind, it would have similar beefiness and depth and yours does not have that. I don't think it's a locker. I doubt I'm wrong.

Thank you all for the great info. I went out and found it last night- was a little hidden by undercoat. Funny after working on mustangs for decades and owning many of them that I never noticed that before!  (guess I've owned to many automatics!).

Thanks! Is that welded on there? I will have to look to see if mine still has that now that I know where to look.

I just put the z-bar in my 66 and need to install the upper return spring that goes from the z-bar to the firewall. Can someone post a picture of where/how it mounts? May as well do it right if I can! Thanks in advance for your help!

1969-1970 Boss 302/429 / Gauges the same 69-70?
« on: January 07, 2024, 01:10:44 PM »
I have a 70gauge cluster with the deluxe woodgrain but my car should have standard interior. I know the bezels are different between 69 and 70 deluxe and standard. Is there a difference between the actual 69 and 70 gauges themselves? Are they all either stamped or printed with a date code?  I have not pulled the panel out yet and just want to make sure I can validate it's a correct 70-gauge set-up so I can still use the one in there and just put the standard bezel back on. (it's an odd ball a non-tach car). Thanks for your insight.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Dash Guage ID
« on: December 28, 2023, 03:09:34 PM »
I have a friend with a 66 Shelby non-Hertz (believe it's in the high 700's but not 100% sure). There was a hole cut in his metal dash and the below guage was installed. I told him I have never seen one and he asked could it have been a supercharged car and that gauge was either added by Shelby or aftermarket for that.   Since I have no idea I figured I'd ask:
1) Has anyone seen a similar gauge installed in the metal face of the dash? What for?
2) Does anyone recognize the gauge and what it may have been used for (if not a supercharger gauge)?

I hate to tell him it's not as sold to the first owner and have him close it off if it was something factory or dealer installed.  I believe the car has been off the road since the early 70's.

Florida Region SAAC / Re: Naples Automotive Experience February 1, 2024

I am going down to see the show on "Fifth Ave" in Naples that weekend and was hoping that event you mentioned was that Friday because that's when I get into the area. Oh well- the car show alone will be an experience! Nice area for a car show and the Rev's Institute car museum is also really good.
