Quote from: 6s341 on July 16, 2024, 12:25:56 AMThank you Gary,
And thanks for your comments and insight on ours and other Shelby auctions.
YW. The buying dealer(for a customer I think) wanted me to contact him so I sent him a text this morning. Now I'm thinking TTs for my car and putting the steelies and hubcaps off to the side.

I was a little disappointed on where it was $$$ going into the last day of the auction but thankfully the bidders were there yesterday. Did I tell you I like RED Shelbys? LOL . Congrats. Gary

I got one that I think is just missing a ground eyelet. Other than that is excellent I believe. I'll have to pull it out of my attic if you are interested.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: door data plates

Bob would that be correct for 66s like the BaT car? They came with data plates that were removed at SA?

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / door data plates
July 12, 2024, 10:35:56 AM
A question came up on the red 66 on BaT and what I "think" I remember but it might not be all SA-LA years: did  1965-7 Shelbys leave the SJ plate with door data tags that  were supposed to be removed at SA? There is a data rivet still on the door and if correct probably shouldn't have been painted over but the question of a replaced door came up because of the rivet. Thanks.

Quote from: shelbymann1970 on July 09, 2024, 11:30:35 AMAny info about hotels or if any info on them will be released before registering?

The preconvention rate window has expired, but these two hotels still have vacancies...

HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS & SUITES VINELAND MILLVILLE
398 Smith Street, Vineland, New Jersey

Wingate by Wyndham Vineland/Millville
2196 West Landis Ave, Vineland, New Jersey
What is the host hotel? It's too bad some couldn't get a convention rate that cannot sign up months in advance. I'm one of them but it is what it is.

When selling a drag car so to speak your crowd is much smaller than if this was a correct SCJ drag pack car. Don't forget the modified shock towers as now not a quick fix back to stock.

Quote from: Rickmustang on July 01, 2024, 06:20:52 PMColor and transmission change but very nice.
Also should mention the engine modifications for good or bad will factor into the equation.
Shouldn't matter much since the original heads and carb are included. Let's face it these were standard (normal) production drivelines so parts are plentiful - not like 65/6 K Code stuff.
Having put 351W cars back to stock I think you are off on the availability of 1969 specific 351W parts. 40 years ago they were HARD to find. The damper and crank pulley were 1969 specific and many of those engines by the early 80s were replaced and scrapped out for 351Cs or later production 351W which I would hunt for a 69 4V intake, damper pulley and pointer to put on as well as a radiator to make the engine look stock "1969". I'd argue 289 HiPo parts made over 5 years would be more plentiful.

That helps. Thanks. Car in question is a pretty nice #1 quality restored car albeit some resto mistakes but metal looks good.
#14
Should a car built on March 24 have the bracket under the spare tire for the space savor bottle? Did early cars not have the bracket? If so a transformation time frame for the brackets appearing? Thanks.

Quote from: Steve Meltzer on June 23, 2024, 12:14:14 AMYES! CHARLES JOHNSON IS A FRAUD AND A SCAMMER. HE DIRECTED ME TO A GUY NAMED SCOTT CASSIDY WHO, FOR ALL I KNOW,  MAY BE THE SAME PERSON. SCOTT SENT ME PICTURES OF HINGES THAT LOOKED GREAT. WE SETTLED ON A PRICE OF $135 FOR BOTH, HE INSISTED ON PAYMENT THROUGH PAYPAL WITH "FRIENDS AND FAMILY", WHICH GIVES YOU NO PROTECTION FOR ANY SORT OF FRAUD. HE WANTED THE MONEY SENT TO AN EMAIL ACCOUNT THAT WAS NEITHER HIS NOR CHARLES JOHNSON'S BUT YET A THIRD PERSON. I'VE YET TO RECEIVE THE HINGES, I'M OUT THE $135 AND HAVE EGG ON MY FACE TO SHOW FOR IT. IT would be great if the forum could prevent him from sending any private emails, etc. That's where I got hooked. I'm really ticked, but find I have little recourse. Steve.
so Pete posted the guy was a scammer 2 months ago and now you post he is? Did you not see Pete's post 2 months ago? It is a shame you got taken but unless you know the member-or the member is well known here with a track record- it is always best to use protection in the transaction. Unfortunately you learned the hard way. Every time I post a wanted ad I always get scammers who direct me to someone else. One way to weed one out is to ask if they have an additional part that DOESN'T exist. My friend did and the guy "had" the non existent part.
