The fine print on the eBay listing says  - We have a couple of these available, so the one you receive may look slightly different from the one pictured, but is guaranteed to be NEW.

Hopefully what you get is a 2 piece design.
I asked them about that and they said not a problem. Yes it made me wonder. Mine came in fine . That was a few months ago from the same seller.

1964 1/2 - 1966 / Re: found etchings on my radiator support
« Last post by evantugby on Today at 05:56:51 PM »
Using the method I outlined

Picture #1 & #3 - since the other marking you decoded shows a standard interior was the interior a Parchment?

Picture #4 is likely PIO which would identify the body was going to be a GT and needed certain things added or not added



Since NJ are fairly rare in unrestored condition (allot of them too rusty to help out in unrestored form) I don't have allot of radiator support pre paint markings to help or give us many clues

You interior and exterior codes might help - just for comparison purposes and maybe a place to start

Very interesting stuff.   

Does my PIO appear consistent in terms of size of markings you've seen on others? I mean each letter is very fat, like a paint brush was used‎, not a wax crayon. Thoughts?

Thanks Scott!

So no one else has seen a pink bumper on a '70 clutch pedal?

saw these on ebay, not mine.  ordered a pair,  they have the name "century"  cast on backside, and came in a raybestos box part # 6004            https://www.ebay.com/itm/142691684769?ViewItem=&vxp=mtr&item=142691684769
A great buy but the shipping is typically adds up. It still is a great deal considering IMO . Get them before they are gone . That is a obsolete Raybestos number I believe.

1969 - 1971 Boss / Re: battery "L" bracket 69/70 boss 302
« Last post by Bob Gaines on Today at 03:37:54 PM »
so what's the verdict ?  was there a cutoff when the L brackets came on stream - or were all  69/70 boss 2's supposed to have a bracket-- factory hit or miss install?   for a may/69  boss 302   thanks
The 69/70 Shelby's (a node to your screen name) got them regardless of battery option and the Boss 2's were made on the same line in Dearborn so most likely were the same. 70 B2 (not Shelby) had a different one because the change in holddown bracket.

Jeff,
Those supplements for shelbys, did they have multiple editions or just one? Like you said you can be confused since I have found quite a few drawing errors, nothing major.
Thanks again for your insight and help
Nils
There is only one version of the Shelby supplement to the 69 shop manual. There are two different printings that are slightly different color paper covers but the information within is the same.

1964 1/2 - 1966 / Re: clarification on sheet metal stamp dates
« Last post by J_Speegle on Today at 03:12:27 PM »
Question: looking at the date stamps on several panels, would it be safe to assume that my kar was built several days/weeks after the scheduled build date of 23 Oct 65?

Yes certainly the plant missed when they guessed it would be completed on Oct 23rd. But at least the order and the approximate date gave others an idea of how many cars, options and such to plan on for around that time period. Looks like your car was more likely an early to mid November built car

Don't know for sure .... as I've never used them during a build. Always had friends to call or real cars to use as a guide for issues

I think there was only one variation but again only stated as a guess at this point
