Parts For Sale / Re: NOS 1967 Deck lid and end caps
January 14, 2024, 10:26:19 PM
 Have allot of interest ... in a purchase everyone wants me to ship the parts ... I have been leery to do so... But I do want to sell them any suggestions to ship overseas or even across the country ... Pehaps someone new will see this and just come pick it up... Thank you  Kenneth Costella
Jeff Burgy was also the person to work on one of the Cobras to first get the hood open..... cable was broken. and replace some of the missing pasts such as the intake... Perhaps he will chime in and tell the back story on the cars and we can give him credit where credit is due... Jeff is a super guy with a true love of the Marque.... 
I got the same call last week... on my cell also ... I politely told him "I dont know you and I dont know how you got my number but my shelbys are not for sale.  and yes he was specific looking for gt500 67s ....

Wanted to Buy / Re: Rear brake shoes

Just make sure you find or use NEW  Bonded if thats what you have to have. I had a bad experience with NOS Bonded shoes some 20 years ago . After installing them on my 66  the brake pedal felt really weird. turned out  the glue/bonding after all these years came apart, I had a few sets back then and my friends dad still had a 50's brake pad rivet machine, and we put rivets in the originals. Never an issue again, later on I was able to buy a whole case of segmented riveted shoes, which I recently sold.

Time to sell it ...1967 NOS Deck lid  Ford box states( Panel assembly Luggage compartment)! and end caps still in original boxes. This is the later all fiberglass unit used late in production of the Shelby GT500 and GT350  for 1967. Boxes are dated  11/29/68  These are absolutely perfect for a correct concourse restoration. Few ever come up for sale let alone NOS  price is reflective of quality and condition All three pieces $4,500.00 located in Michigan 734.231.7 six 3 four Kenneth Costella   
Bob thank you for your constructive comments .... Someone else also figured they were a good deal and bought the whole case of them 24 sets ... Should last him a few lifetimes or they will be for sale at the next SAAC event ... Lol  SOLD
