Yes, it was in some of the big block mustangs also.
The experts here can correct me but the RUG-S was also used in 1967 so the C6 tail could work if you plan to use it as a 67 trans and the C7 could work on a 68. What I cant answer for you is around what Shelby serial number in 1967 did the tailshaft go from C6 to C7 (example did #2700 and above use a C7?).    Which one you use would depend on at year and Shelby serial number.
1969-1970 Boss 302/429 / Hurst Shifter- which one?

I need a Boss 302 4sp 1970 shifter assembly, lever, rods etc. I have read enough where the chrome shift lever is easy enough to identify as a 70 and same with the rods because of the Dxxx #'s.  The question comes in with the body of the shifter. I have seen even on the Boss 302 page a shifter and its labeled as super shifter . When I look on ebay there are some that are stamped competition plus and others just say Hurst and their bodies all look (to me at least) like the same body and levels and they are being called 70 boss shifters. Anyone know what they came from the factory with?  Prices are all over the place and I would prefer to get the correct one if spending the money on a used one.

Note: I didn't post to the Boss exchange because I can't seem to register there (same problem people used to have here)
Just listed it on eBay today 2/21  with a starting price of $1500. Got to build up the parts fund!
I am looking for a standard dash cluster with a tach for my 1970 mustang.  Not concerned about the bezel but the 1970 standard gauges are different than the deluxe and different then the 1969.  I've included a picture.  If you have one PM me and let me know what you need to get.  Thanks
Adjusting price- asking $1900 or best offer
68 GT350 AT 1487
NO Longer Available- sold.         

I have an original 9 inch rear I bought a year or two ago for $2100. It was rebuilt right before I bought it (have receipt somewhere) and never installed. Its a 3:50 gear and POSI.  The casting near where the summer bracket attaches says C5A or C6A (hard to read). The casting on the orange part which I believe is the date code seems to read 1  2  6 (also hard to read).  The housing is pitted as its an old original and there is no tag but you can buy repro's I guess if needed.  If I can get $2000 back out of it I'll sell it. If interested PM me.  It is located in CT near the Springfield Mass border. I prefer pickup- I personally don't plan to crate it and ship it but could maybe drop it off to somewhere local as is. Thanks. 
Did the white come out of CT within the last year or so?  I spoke to a guy last year who had one with the same color combination here in CT and it looks like the same car. I think the one I saw sold once via Craigslist and then changed hands again all within the past year or so- probably flipping it. I'll have to look to se if I kept pictures.
Yes, appears to be seal sealer.  The first car I saw it on was an untouched original and was surprised to find it behind the panel (cant remember if that was a 69 or a 70 Boss 302). Then when I saw it again on this 70 Boss 302 it made me wonder how common it was. 
I always thought this was cool- Boss script in the inner quarter from the factory.  I've seen it in two out of the three Boss cars I've had over the years.
I looked where you mentioned it but wasn't able to find it?  If someone has the 67 version (if it exists) please post it in the 1967 section. Thanks.
I plan to start focusing on my late 67 GT500 this spring and was wondering if an undercarriage finishing guide exists like I've seen for the 66 and 69's. If so can someone post it?   The two others mentioned are some of the best resources I've seen over the years. Thanks.
I tend to stay away from the valuation tools unless no "actual" sales results are available.  I like to go to E Bay and enter a car and select "sold" search criteria to get realistic sales results. Obviously there are other better ways of getting values- its just quick and easy.  In the case of 66's there's been a number listed but no actual recent sales history (probably due to the lofty asking prices). 

I've seen running driving NOM 66's in 2017 with asking prices in the 90's (in Hemmings etc), contemplated buying a mostly complete but apart one needing full restoration in the 60/70k range and know of one without a motor or trans with cosmetic exterior fire damage that sold in the 20's out of New England- all in 2017. I believe Brett at Cape Cod Mustang currently has a decent driver with a "asking price" of  around 140k.  I'm sure many will disagree but my opinion is that someone would actually get 80-90k for one that doesn't have the original drivetrain and doesn't run or drive (less if its rusty) and take home 90-100k for a very tired one that requires full resto but isn't rusted and runs and drives well. The caveat is that we've also seen bad or good ones unexpectedly bring crazy high and very low numbers- like rolling dice.  Just one mans opinion based on some actual 2017 sales  :)
