Those tires look a bit old, I'd be hesitant to wind the car up in the driving video also.

Was a great tour, even if there were only a couple Fords in the entire building!   :)
1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Weak firewalls?
March 28, 2024, 12:52:55 AM
Could very well be a weak area, but under normal driving conditions, shouldn't be a problem.  I've never noticed the area bent or cracked on original cars and ones I've disassembled.  If I remember right, 67-68 do have a reinforcement area there, spot welded in.
Holman-Moody makes hipo camshafts and matched solid lifters.
Wanted to Buy / WTB: '65 GT350 gauge pod
March 23, 2024, 01:14:34 AM
Looking for a nice original gauge pod for a 5S4xx car.  Just the pod, have tach/oil gauge.  Some minor repair/restoration needed is ok.

Original or reproduction?

Charles are you listed as a dealer in NC? Is that how you got a title on a bill of sale car?

I'm not a dealer.  Went through normal private owner process.  Called NC DMV before buying the car to make sure I understood the process.  Other than the bill of sale, they wanted a copy of the Alabama registration, which the seller didn't have, but he got done before I picked it up.

Looks like a nice car, but I have never tried to title and register a car that only comes with a registration, is that common?

I bought a '66 out of Alabama last year on a bill of sale, they don't have titles for old cars either.  Had to go through extra levels of review here in NC, but got a title for it, no problems other than they entered a '0' as a 'O' at NC DMV, so caused a mis-match on inspector report matching up to the title application.

The KR emblems did not have pins.

Thanks, good to know.  I'm working on a KR now that needs one of these.
I was able to buy a '66 carryover last summer from a guy I've known 20 or so years.  We were acquaintances through the vintage-mustang online forum going back to probably the late 90's.  Got to meet him in person a few times at SAAC conventions and other car shows/events over the years.  He bought the carryover in the 90's, stripped it and had it completely painted, brought it back home and never assembled it.  He built the motor/trans and rear assembly and had sent me pics of the engine way back, maybe early 2000's (I still have them!).  Don't remember coming out and saying I'd be interested if he ever wanted to sell it, but I must have expressed interest at least once or twice.  About 5 or so years back, we were exchanging texts and out of the blue he told me flat out that the car was not for sale.  I got the point and never brought it up again.       

Fast forward to this past summer, he was looking for a correct radiator for the Shelby and asked if I could help, told him I'd look around.  A few days later he messaged that if someone made him an offer on the car, he'd consider selling.  I called him shortly after, he told me what he was looking to get for it and 2 weeks later I loaded the car and parts up and it was at my house.  I didn't maintain the friendship thinking I might be able to get the car, he was just one of my car buddies that we'd chat or text once in a while.  I think he must have felt the same way and was happy for me to get the car.  Plus, I think he took some comfort in knowing if I got it, it would be put back together nice.

Not the most exciting story, but sometimes just being a friend to someone can have unexpected/unintended outcomes.

I'm used to seeing originals with pins on the back, but couldn't say for sure if they all were like that.
The Shelby's I've titled here in N. Carolina have 'Ford' as the make and they base value as a Mustang.  I'm not going to argue with them as others have noted the taxes are considerably less.  Last one I did 6 months ago, showed the bill of sale since the car was bought from a no-title state, but they still used the Mustang value.

Joe sent this picture of his original

I think this is 1968 1/2 only

I do recall the NOS one being phosphated

I have one of these, thought it was something someone modified as it looked cut at the base.
Both, since the cragar lug wrench won't fit the standard jack that came with the car.
