My '69 GT350 had a plain walnut shifter handle when I bought it (July 1970) and I don't know if it was original or if someone wanted a souvenir or a supply issue or what since it was a Hertz car. It was in service for less than 6 months so I can't be sure about anything during that time frame.

It was a good weekend- daughter married in Santa Barbara was great.
Todd B brought my 65 and the 68 gt 500- even won popular vote with my 65 f100!
Many thanks to Mike Shally,  Darren L. and Charles Turner for the judging in hot weather, and of coarse Pete for putting the 68 together. And of coarse Mr. Kopec for working with me on timing. My daughter says best weekend ever
Iíll see you at the next one for sure

No Cobras were entered in concours this year.  :(
Mr Gaines  thank you for the response

So to be clear Kar Kraft was involved with the left over 1969 conversion to 1970s :

Adding stripes on hood
Front spoiler
Possible emmision updates to 70 standards
Stickers to reflect the above
Door V. I. N. sticker on doors with the Fed's supervision

So then actually three companies where truly involed in the 1969 program, Ford,  Shelby and A. O. Smith.
I thought I was CLEAR ENOUGH? Larry's photos from KK in spring of 70. BTW Front spoiler done by dealers. I have pics of Larry actually painting the hood stripes at KK. Just not here at work. I also have paperwork thanks to Mongo of my car leaving KK to Wixom holding facility to be shipped by rail to the east coast for export.
Larry Lawrence KK painter.
Dang cool vintage photo. How did they keep the overspray off the uncovered sheetmetal? Especially the top?

Another excellent video of SAAC 46 - This one by Casey Hudson

Whose was the SN95 GT1 car @ 1:42 in the video?
BTW the69  Mach1 was cheaper but where do you find it was lighter? Is fiberglass heavier than steel?
* Depends on how thick it is. Production weight fiberglass is generally just as heavy as steel. But it's easier to get complex shapes.
What was the modification of a 289 HiPo in 1967?
* Same intake as 66
Did regular Mustangs get the Holley carb, Al intake in the J code cars?
* Why would they? They weren't selling performance with that car/engine.
GT500s had 428s in 68 well before the CJ came out?
* Which is why I said mid year
69s you couldn't get an AL intake or valve covers on the regular Mustang.
* Again not necessary for the market the "regular" Mustang was targeted for. Not sure I'd call a 470cfm Autolite carb on a 351 "performance" even with an AL intake.
Real performance cars the boss 302 or Boss 429?I think a drag pack GT500 would run circles around a Boss 302 performance wise.
* I would hope so - an extra 126" and all that torque should help. But let's put both those same cars on a twisty road and see which one understeers into the nearest ditch.
How many drag racers pulled the B9 out and put an FE into their cars to go drag racing? Same FE that was in the GT500s in some cases. 
* Everyone who scattered their B9 and realized they could downgrade the engine for much less money. The B9 was never designed to be a drag engine.
I think you need to "revise" your post.
Still think I'm wrong? Did you go to the site in my first post? Check out their discussion on the Z serial numbers and their documents
I guess I could revise the Mach1 and Shelby and list them as Luxury Mustangs - using Ford's own ad pitch of the time.
PS when I was writing stuff for Mustang Illustrated in the late 80s I always recommended buying the Mustang LX instead of the GT they were exactly the same engine and chassis wise but the LX was over 100 pounds lighter.

Is there another page with Cobras?
  Significant as in 5 years the Shelby went from being a damn near race car to a really nice touring car.  I like that.  If I had room in my garage I would have one.
