    Lets try that flasher. Then you can stop listening to those people. I dont think it will work. :rolleyes: Try the brake light switch, make sure its the power brake version. I suggest checking your grounds and replacing the turn signal switch in the column if that doesnt do the trick. Stay with the 323. It is designed for six bulb applications, the heavy duty flashers are designed for two bulbs.

    My first guess is tilt. What happens when you turn the key?

    Here's a suggestion. Instead of trying to "shake the tree" why dont you just be honest and put an honest price on it? What you have done is alienated many potential customers. It's yours and you can ask what you like, but you have started off looking totally clueless. Try a no reserve eBay auction. If they were from my car and you tried to pull that stunt, you would be keeping them and driving on the same driveway for years to come. I would agree its "nice to have" but it doesnt really change the value of the car. I certainly wouldn't give up the farm for them. I can tell you where the car is. My price is $3,000 for the information. You would pay a stock broker for help, why not a knowledgeable Shelby person? I noticed you didnt think twice about asking for something for free. The Shelby circles are small and once you piss someone off, word gets around.

    I am merely pointing out, I think there is a big difference between "I keep hearing that 69 Shelby's are not suppose to have red inserts in the carpet" and asking specifically if a white interior car should have red inserts. Especially if you have some pretty credible evidence that your white interior car did. I think more cars had the red inserts than the absence of them. Maybe it's me...never mind. I hear a lot of stuff about these cars too and most of the time, it's based on the ignorance of the people making the statements. If your collecting #1088 has the inserts, original carpets, black interior, fastback.

    I am not attacking you personally, but your original post asks about "1969 Shelbys" You are kind of with holding information and changing the course of the thread? Its been my personal experience, that an exception can be found to almost every rule when it involves Shelby production. It may need to be amended, but as Jeff stated, one car does not make a pattern. Perhaps if you found several others like this it would be helpful.

    I think the answer is some did. It's going to depend on production date, interior color and bodystyle.

    Those are mold numbers and not helpful in identification. There sHould be a casting date between the oil filter and pan rail. Possibly a number on the side of the block, outside the number one cylinder. Pictures would be helpful. Here is a very good identification page.... http://428cobrajet.com/id-block

    I have not seen clear backglass on a fastback. I think its tinted, because of the angle of the glass. Try PS Auto Glass in Janrsville, WI.

    It depends on which piece of glass you are talking about? All rear fastback glass is tinted Sun-X. I would think the tinted glass would be on the Marti report if you mean side glass.

    Shelby had a variety of vehicles, including vans, station wagons, trucks, etc. The Shelby American Autombile Club has records of most of these vehicles. If you post the VIN it could be checked. Bottom line is this...its still a station wagon and probably doesnt have much added value over any other station wagon. There is a big difference between producing a high performance car and having a car for utility purposes. Assuming of course, you are not fooling us... :rolleyes:

    Yes, the base for the 1968 Cobra Jet ram air is the same. It's not an easy part to find. http://www.428cobrajet.com/id-air-cleaner-68

    The 1968 GT500 (PI) uses an oval air cleaner. The 1969 GT500 uses a 1969 style base that is similar, but not the same. The 1968 base is a 1968 ram air base with a special, unique heat duct. (snorkel) If you don't know what you are doing, you better be very careful here. There are a lot of look alikes and rip off artists. Reproduction snorkels range in price from $750-1000. Reproduction bases are $900. If you want real stuff, expect to pay double those numbers. Do you have a yellow KR? What number is it?

    Unreal...I am not sure what a "real Shelby" is in the context of your statement? I thought it was a car built by Shelby in the 1960s. In other words, you couldn't build one if you tried.

    It sounds like you might also have a legal problem. The history of the car is the most important thing. You may need to find an expert to evaluate your vehicle throughly. Have you contacted the Shelby American Automobile Club? They track the histories of all vintage Shelbys. Time to get your ducks in a row. Are you sure the information you looked at isnt a previous owner of your vehicle? Is your car original or restored? The reference I see online indicates 6S1833 is a survivor car. That should make it easier to determine authenticity. The cars authenticity is not determined solely by who has the VIN plate, but rather anumber of things including its history.

    1968 #3210 was destroyed. So, you can stop looking for that one. Just so you know, the Shelby American Automobile Club has information on hundreds of cars that are not in the Registry. It has been my experience, they reserve the right to withhold that information for various reasons and to people that can't prove ownership. Sometimes it is by the current owner's request, other times it's because the information could be useful to someone up to devious deeds. I am not saying that's the case here, but just because you can't find anything in the Registry or through a couple of inquiries on the internet, doesn't really mean a whole lot. Kind of curious you have a history of looking for cars not listed in the Registry. It maybe helpful to explain more in the future why you are trying to find all of these cars.
