Believe sometime in 67 depending on plant. They might have been the results of a second and different provider than the black style

Less of the gray ones out there in the parts supply than the black style. Looking at total classic Mustang and Shelby production there are (of the cuff guess since I've not taken the time to compare and document yet) approx 6-7 versions

A picture I posted a few years back from a day at the yards gathering parts

OH boy!!   I know there are  2 different lengths  between coupe, convert  and fastback.    I have always found them on big full size cars and cut them down .  This might take some homework to get all applications correct..  advice is welcomed.

thanks chris

Mr Speggle

in your reply you said "sometime in 67 depending on plant" you sure on this comment. I'm positive I have them on my 66 cars as well.

just something to think about unless I'm reading the replies differently

None of the examples above are from convertibles and you can make out a number of different lengths and cutout locations if they have them

"Speggle"  ????   ::)

Which 66 caaars do you have them on and are they later cars? 

Did look through all the 66's I have pictures of and couldn't find a one (66) that wasn't black yet
