Concours Talk / 1968 GT500 exhaust valve
April 16, 2024, 06:07:41 PM
I feel it was appropriate to begin this new topic instead of continuing:

SAAC Forum► The Cars► 1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR► 428 PI Exhaust Manifold Question

Not only is it my long-time /observation/experience that original 1968 GT500s are equipped with the exhaust "flapper" control valve on the RH exhaust manifold of the 428 PI, the part is clearly supported by Shelby documentation.

We are returning to MCACN this year with our black, Premiere, '68 GT500 convertible Division I car for their Best of 1968 feature.  It sounds like it will be a really strong presence this year for Fords.
Another historical Shelby "unveil" is rumored.  Who knows??

Looking forward to seeing folks there, along with some great cars.  Pack a bag and be there!
SAAC Forum Discussion Area / Tom Corcoran - RIP

Forgive me if this was mentioned previously; I don't think so.

Tom Corcoran, editor of Mustang Monthly Magazine back in the late 80's, as well as author of several Mustang and Shelby books, passed away back in February of this year.  He was an acclaimed fiction writer, having published a series of Alex Rutledge character novels (which are very fun reads).  Tom also co-wrote songs that are Jimmy Buffett classics, and was a photographer for JB over several years.  A naval officer, a bartender, a father, and a great guy.  Tom owned a '67 Shelby.

I had the pleasure of knowing Tom.  RIP

3 are dated November 1967 from Akron plant
1 is dated September 1966 from MA plant?

I tried searching, but am not finding this topic from this past year (I think).  Your help pointing me toward this information is most appreciated!
I'm familiar with the GT500 smog belt used with a/c, however I am trying to find out what belt was used in the factory application without a/c.  My final version of the Ford MPC doesn't list one.  What about the first version?  Might someone have an original example?
Interested in your knowledge/experience with this application.

Thanks for your input.
Pair (2) NOS alternator belts, both dated 3-67; C7ZE-8620-F; Ford MPC lists as 289 Special (K or hi-po) with T/E without A/C and specifies a pair.  Marked AU.  Ford MPC specific application.  $300.00 plus shipping.  Could deliver to Columbus.  Please PM your interest. 
Thank you.
1967 Shelby GT350/500 / 1967 steel wheel identification
January 15, 2022, 09:23:11 AM
Do we have a topic to identify '67 steel rims/wheels--much like the superb '68 topic??

If so, I'm missing it.  If not, could some '67 folks put together that information?

Thank you.

It has much darker (charcoal grey--almost black) bristle type fabric.  Hole for gas filler neck is 6" on center from rear edge, much like a 1969 gas tank dimension.

Appreciate your help identifying it.

1968 Shelby GT350/500/500KR / 68 steel wheels
August 07, 2021, 11:54:07 PM
In case some of you are shopping for correct 15x6 steel wheels, be sure that they have air vent slots like pictured.

Also, if a Ford service label is still on the wheel, it will be a C8A #.
While searching to find the television schedule for the upcoming Barrett-Jackson AZ auction, it appears that these long awaited documentaries will be broadcast at various times over a few days.
Excellent topic Pete.
May I suggest someone post a topic on the 67 steel wheels.  My limited experience is that the vent slots are shaped differently.
Dates do not totally conflict.  Tulsa dates are June 18-21 (Thursday – Sunday), while SAAC-45 Indy dates are now June 17-19 (Wednesday – Friday).  Because they are fairly close geographically, it looks like that given some official scheduling cooperation, it would be possible to accommodate particularly the Concours Judging (typically one day) so that an owner could make both events.  This could also work for the general car show participants as well, which is Sunday in Tulsa.

How about exploring some cooperation that might benefit the car owner, while really not detracting from either event?  Have your cake and eat it to, with a little interstate on the side?
