  '66 automatic diff 3.50 open . Common to Hertz cars. Built fourth week of Feb '66 at the Sterling Axle plant , so above serial 1,000 for sure. The tag number pertains to the "drum to drum " assembly and C6ZX designated an assembly with 2-1/2 wide metallic brakes specifically built for SAI. A "regular hi po Mustang would have a WCZ tag and 1-3/4 wide asbestos brakes.

I知 amazed! Thanks and the depth of knowledge from you and others here helps us all enjoy our great Shelby hobby!! By the way my good friend Gary Underwood maybe introduced you to me at a Cobra owners event at Willow Springs Raceway? Or at a Saac event and has relied on you for his transmissions?? I知 old enough now to not be always right on my memory; so sorry if I知 wrong! Thanks Jim with SFM6S1680

    Yes that it it. We were invited to a show at the Pomona Fair grounds  a few years back . There is a youtube video of me describing the car. I don't know how to provide a link.

  Doug ,
      I'm just a regular guy that has been drag racing a Hertz car for over 45 years , won over $50,000 doing it and refuses to quit. I doubt there is an SAI produced vehicle with more drag strip passes than mine. It's not a gasser found in a barn though. LOL   THAT would make me famous .

  I sign them but usually hear , "oh I thought you were someone famous" as they walk away. Luckily I don't have an ego problem.
