1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / parts finishes
June 01, 2024, 12:00:25 PM
OK, I know the finishes on these parts as they pertain to service parts(clear zinc I believe on Zbar components and black paint on mounts). so what were they from the factory for a GT500 428.
Z-bar frame mount
Z-bar engine mount
engine frame mounts
engine engine mounts(bolts to block)
Engine insulators.
is there a correct paint code for the steel wheels?
Tail light panel paint code(have original paint on mine)
Thanks in advance.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / Block weight
May 02, 2024, 07:01:14 AM
Anyone have a ballpark what a bare 428 block with a crank and damper on it would weigh? Breakdown even? Block, Crank? Thanks.
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Fender variations?
April 22, 2024, 03:10:28 PM
I'm looking at this Silver Jade car and where the front side hood bumpers mount has a large rectangular hole on each side. The hole there is usually just big enough for a rubber bumper to squeeze into(see pic of my red car).  So whats up with that. Car sure looks original on both front aprons and I suspect the caulk used is covering the big hole for rubber bumper clearance in the apron? Car built beginning of Feb.
The Lounge / This is why I am not on Ebay much
April 15, 2024, 05:46:22 AM
I used to look for parts all the time. I have saved searches that I get emails on. I don't have time to sift through all of the BS to see what I am looking for. Any suggestions to get the spam out of ebay searches? I tried tagging some from time to time buy ebay doesn't give a rat's a$$. Here is my email on the 68 Shelby console search. Look at the 5 new "finds".
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Snake emblems
April 03, 2024, 05:37:34 PM
Going through my original ford green backed snake emblems I have 2 styles. One fits my convertible quarter panel perfectly. In the side pic you can see the curvature of the quarter panel where the emblem sits. How do  know they are in the right position? when I bought my car-plus I have pics when it was new-it had the original Shelby emblems on it. I measure the placement of the rectangular "SHELBY" emblem before removing. I know it was never off because tof pics and the original RED paint under it(masked off on a repaint). What I call the convertible snake has  .054 thousands gap in the center of the emblem on a flat surface. The other style which doesn't fit has about a .025 thousands gap in the center. The vert emblem when set on my Mach1 between the emblem studs is slightly open in the center. The flatter one fits real close but not perfect but probably does when stuck on. Second pic shows the top gap of the flatter .025 emblem on a vert quarter. First pic .054 gap snake fits perfectly.
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Tilt turn switch wiring
March 11, 2024, 08:56:20 AM
I sent some pics to Dennis Yoo from a spare tilt column I have. I pulled the column out of a 1969 Mach1 in 1980. Put a new service switch from Ford in it. Ran the column in a 69 Mach1 for 4 years and then my Shelby until 1996. everything worked. Pics are how I wired it and the "spare" wires from a 1 switch fits all service part. I hope this helps some others in the future.
1967 Shelby GT350/500 / floor drain plugs.
March 04, 2024, 12:48:38 PM
Are the floor drain plugs for a 67 Mustang and Shelby the same from all 3 plants? Hard to find pics for the Dearborn plant. Here is a pic of  a car Vern sold on BaT. 67 Shelby(SJ plant). Thanks
Here are some pics of my original deck lid. Repos don't have holes for the bumpers although someone could add them. Repos don't have the hole for map light wiring. Other holes missing in repo deck lid inner structure. There are other nuances also when compared.
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Headlight wiring loom
February 12, 2024, 07:12:33 AM
Any pics on how the headlight wiring loom extension was modified-if at all- from the standard 4 headlight system to the Shelby 2 headlight system. Same headlight switch? Thanks
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Front Bumper
February 11, 2024, 05:08:27 AM
Difference between an original and repo are some dimples it has been said. Can anyone provide detailed pics to the areas on an original bumper that are different than a repo bumper? Thanks.
I was looking at the date on my dist in my 351. It is dated 9F24. June 24. So my assumption based on AO Smith terminating their contract after the 69 model year was that Ford built out 69 Shelbys knowing many would become 70s. The myth being Ford had so many left after production they decided to turn them into 70s. The dist date code means Ford already did their emissions well before that date and started producing 351 distributors for the 1970 model year Shelby. Thoughts?
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / Starter cable
January 14, 2024, 05:50:47 PM
351w starter cable. Is it the same as a cj or Boss 9? Are there numbers on the cable?
1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / GT350 std cooling fan shroud
December 15, 2023, 07:59:55 AM
Does anyone have good pics of the original 351 standard cooling fan shroud? Of the texture of the shroud. The molded numbers.  Did service shrouds change over the years like they did for the 428 CJ where they moved numbers and it went from a "horse hair" finish to a smooth finish with a few iterations along the way. Thanks in advance. Gary
