I could wake up to this sound every morning.

Looking for more video of this precious piece of history.

I've never seen one with pins and I have seen quite a few.  But that does not discount aberrations from the factory.

All great advice gentlemen.  I plan to try the rinseless car wash and see how that goes.  When the snow disappears.  Thank you all!

Car show. February 10th? L oh L oh L oh L!!!!  February car show.  Dreamy.  We're getting up to one foot of snow in the next 24 hours in Chicago.  Why oh why am I here??  In any event enjoy the show and get pictures so I can imagine your meteorological wonderland.

All good advice everyone.  I am going to look into the Wolfgang products.  Thank you!  And orange peel, BGlover67  LOL!  I had to check peel versus peal incidentally.  Peal meaning a loud sound like a peal of thunder.  We got it right.

I've recently viewed the rinseless car wash procedure on YouTube particularly involving a 65 G.T. 350 and wondered if anyone here has an opinion on its viability as an effective means of cleaning the paintwork without getting water in crevices and cracks where it would best be left dry. I am suitably intrigued by the procedure.
Here is the link:

Lol! Then it's true. I am not a newbie.

Not no noob.  Hey wait, that was a double negative.  Sigh...
For the record, it was never my intent to question the veracity of this car, but rather to show with amusement what some people do as a temporary (hopefully) solution to holding a vin tag in place. Maybe it was an old photo and the owner got tired of removing the rivet to compare the Ford vin. I also remember distinctly from an old magazine that someone attached a snowplow shovel to the front end of a 66 Hertz.
This is the source. I may have muddied the record at the beginning of my post by mentioning the Hertz with the fender flares. I meant to add that the Hertz was another Shelby I saw with unusual attributes in addition to this one. I will attribute it to Bullitt delirium or Bullitt fatigue. Was playing soundtrack up and back. Hardcore.

Jim must have been going easy on it in the pic. I'm sure if he opened up both four barrels he would have had a Miller bath! And 'deathsled' is one of the best aliases on this forum - I wouldn't change a thing.  8)
Sage advice.
1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Hertz painted white

With fender flares and blue and white velour interior. Looks kinda hot from exterior in a forbidden borderline sacrilegious sort of way.
Found on Bring a Trailer site under Shelby Mustang. Saw a Hertz car on there with huge flares painted white with white and blue velour interior as well. I could find and post.

At least it did the job of keeping the tag with the car.
Or did they not have rivets when they transferred it to the replacement body?

Quite possibly!  Guess you could say they got "screwed" on the deal.
