1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 smog
« on: May 26, 2021, 02:21:21 PM »
I have owned my 67 GT500 for many years.  It was built 1/10/67 in San Jose and should have a smog system but does
not.  I'm not sure if it is likely that I could find the parts to assembly one.  i would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / KR steering column rebuilder
« on: June 04, 2020, 05:40:20 PM »
My steering column shakes when I pass over a small bump in the road and I am looking for a quality
shop to rebuild the column.

I have done all the easy stuff like new wheels & radial tires, balancing & alignment, balanced drive shaft, rebuilt steering box, new front springs and I'm out of ideas.  I have owned the car for over 20 years and have taken it to two shops, one a shelby restorer but without a solution.

Thanks.

I'm adjusting the distributor points on my 67 GT500 and seem to remember that .20 is the gap.  Is that correct?

Thanks,

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 gt500 idle settings
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:07:23 AM »
I have the original holly 600's and the hot idle is 1000 rpm but cold idle is too low and I want to adjust them higher by turning the screw under the carb counterclockwise but want to know if I should increase both carbs or just one and, if so, which one.

Thanks for the advise.

1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 67 GT500 PS hose routing
« on: February 07, 2019, 10:10:04 AM »
Hi all,
I have replaced my power steering hoses with concourse ones on my 67 GT500 without air and the metal spiral sleeve from the pressure hose rubs the
power steering parts that travel back and forth.  Can anyone send me a picture of how the hose is routed.

Thanks.

The rear interior panel of my 67 GT500 has been cut for speakers.  This is the piece that has the round interior lights. The cutout is in the rounded area near the door striker.  I want to replace the panels but don't know what they are called or where to get them. Please help with advise.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / KR handling problem
« on: May 17, 2018, 06:07:24 AM »
I've owned my 68 KR conv. for 25 years.  It is unrestored and presents very well, but the steering column always shakes at times especially when I hit a very small bump.  I have had sets of new radials, balanced, aligned, replaced front springs, ball joints, rebuilt steering box.  A local mustang restorer tightened the steering box adjustment, but the problem persists.  Have any of you guys experienced this type of problem?  Any thoughts?
