Do you mean the Shelby made black sheet metal bracket riveted inside the trunk to the rear tail light panel?

You may want to make a mirror-image of the one you have, as there are left and right and a few variations made over the '67 production run.  Does your car have the "flat" or "Raised" fiberglass tail panel?

See attached.

Or post a photo of the one you have and count ALL the holes on the vertical panel, also measure the top and bottom horizontal sections for the depth measurement.  Are the ends open or closed?

Quote from: greekz on June 08, 2024, 11:22:39 AMI agree that going the extra mile to remove the pedal assembly will allow you to inspect, lubricate, and replace any worn components.  You do not want to do the job twice because of worn bushings.

Yes, look at the '66 Ford service manual identify all the parts (including the ones you may not have) and order all of them.

Quote from: highland green on May 18, 2024, 10:37:40 AMWas the photo staged? Publicity for who? Or an actual event. ???

This image has been posted before, can't seem to find the previous thread.  I think the reason was in that thread, it might have been staged but can't remember what for.

The guy driving was a Hair cutter to the stars, Jay Sebring, he changed it from his real name - he was killed the night of the Manson murders,  Cut Steve McQueen's hair and Carroll Shelby's and Paul Newman. 

McQueen and Robert Vaughn, the actor, were invited to the party the night of the murders but neither went.  McQueen was on Manson's hit list.

"Thomas John Kummer, known professionally as Jay Sebring, was an American celebrity hair stylist, and the founder of the hairstyling corporation Sebring International. Sebring was murdered by members of the Manson Family along with his ex-girlfriend Sharon."

Yes as portions of DSO's, the two largest were 55 cars all GT500's and 57 cars all GT350's seems these would have been at the LA facility about Feb - March, also there were 47 built at Ford in June that would likely have been at Shelby late June.

One way is to type the message you want and then click the PREVIEW button to the bottom right of the message box, it will then show a box below the message box where you can navigate to or drag an image from a location in your computer, or if you have another window/folder open on your computer where you can see the image or images you can drag them to that lower box area, you'll see them and then click the POST button, below the lower right corner of the message box.

There is another way, by clicking on the little photo icon in the header bar that let's you type a size and url location but I've not done that.

Hope this helps...
