Karguy,

If you want to duplicate the original and the price of an original stick is too salty, check with Holman Moody as they still manufacture the C3OZ-C bumpstick.  I'm willing to bet that the price will be less than the original.  Good luck with with the project.  I'm basically doing the same thing for for my Hertz Car.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Best replacement leaf springs for 66 GT350?
« Last post by Bob Gaines on March 26, 2023, 10:08:42 PM »
What are the best replacement leaf springs for a 66 GT350? Seems to be many choices but I want some as close as possible to the stock style. I know 4 leaf but they seem to have too many choices. Trying to keep ride height the same.

Thanks
Matt

Could not agree more! It is almost impossible to buy parts today, you do not know what you are getting....now it seems like there are good, better, and best parts to buy and most you cannot even begin to know.
Where is a good place to just buy parts on line for Shelbys, and Mustangs? A place that just sells the bestest quality and correct parts....
There is not one best place to buy IMO. You could narrow it down to mostly 3 IMO. Even then you have to buy informed because of the choice alternatives. That is why a forum like this is invaluable for helping determine the best alternatives so a buyer can make a informed decision for what is best for them.

Anybody have any experience with either of these two cams: Comp 31-334-4 236@.05 528 lift 110 lobe separation or Isky 381358 236@.05 .512 lift 108 lobe separation?


I think either of these will be a lot of cam if you are limited to 289 CI. I took the same Comp Cams cam out of a '66 GT350 because the customer didn't like the lack of low end torque. I installed a Comp Cams 260H which he was happy with. It was more like 212 degrees at .050" and .498" lift. You can save yourself a lot of grief by adding cubes.

In case you are not aware your 1970 Shelby is a 1969 production car that has had the Ford VIN edited . All of the Regular Mustang parts on the car are 1969 model year.

I was thinking that it was the 19A242 that was important. The only difference in part numbers is the 0 vs the 1. D0ZA 19A242 vs D1ZA 19A242. So, looks like a D1ZA 19A242 is just bigger? Anyone know of a D0ZA 19A242 for sale?

The 19A242 just identifies the part as a radio. Al the other stuff identifies year and model it was originally designed for and variation identifiers

Believe you would be best served finding a 69 radio even though your car is titled as a 1970.

My 70 GT500 came with an aftermarket radio. It originally had an am/8 track. I found a D1ZA 19A242 am/8 track which I think should be correct.  The car also came with a new radio bezel still in the bag. Heres my problem: the radio opening in the bezel is 4w x 2h, but the part of the radio that should slide into that opening is 4.5w x 2.75h. What am I missing? Does the am/8 track require a different bezel?

Why would a D1ZA radio be "correct" for your car or application. The same bezel was used for all radio applications in 69 and 70 so the issue is the wrong radio not the wrong bezel if you have an unmodified original radio bezel. Sorry don't have a bezel handy to measure.
+1 . Your 1971 (D1ZA) radio will not fit in the 69/70 radio bezel .
