1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / speedometer cable lenght
October 23, 2023, 06:11:51 PM
66 1122 t10m cast/cast, feb build. anybody know what the ORIGINAL cable length is? using the original housing, cable broke, being told that 4 speeds all use the same cable, but had same issue on another t10 66. it is not the same as toploader or any of the replacement cables from all of our vendors. i will keep original housing but will buy anything fore the core.

CSX 2000 Series / daytona cobra model kit

gunze sagyo daytona model, getting ready to maybe build, as soon as i find it. what was the chassis number, quick history, what color is/ was it. just doing prelim history. thanks, scoops
only a few made, looking for info that somebody collected? 67 350 lime green, was in washington state at one time. i think the owner told me it was factory installed, very nice low mile original, except rr had had very poor body repair, in nevada. had the washer bottle relocated to under the heater motor area, he was either original or second owner. think it was 4 speed, he was asking $9500 at the time, a while ago. sold. just interested in the washer relocation, if anyone knows if this was factory. i didnt buy it cause SMALL BLOCKS ARE FOR PUNKS! scoops
68 fastback, the trim around the rear seat latch, are there supose to be washers around the 4 screws? i see them offered, but my original car dosent have them and i see no marks where they would have been. did shelby loose them? car did have a warranty repair for a water leak when new, maybe ford lost them?
small trim that covers upper/lower 1/4 inner trim panels, should it have a slight bend in it around the roll bar? just noticed mine, it makes sense as the panels are tight fit. rh side fits slightly tighter as the roll bar must be slightly off center, maybe 1/16 inch.
Wanted to Buy / wanted

66 350 open letter valve cover gaskets. been thru sveral sets of gaskets, all fresh and new, fel rpo, napa, no cheap ones and none fit remotely close. best found were the black rubber thick ones and trimed off the tabs. these are the original covers, un warped, never a leakage or fit problem, lst ones been on since the 70's, factory new ford service replacements. what are you using? stock original motor. I am aware of the problems with old nos gaskets shrinking and warping. what was the original gasket like? material, tabs,etc.  thanks, phred

August 21, 2019, 05:45:03 PM
66 Shelby. what brand parts do you recommend (if motorcraft not available) must be dependable, no offbeat parts places, no cheap repop junk , these are strictly for driver, but would be nice if looked ok. need coil, cap, rotor, plugs and wires, points, condenser. again, no repops. phred
