  1. I haven't seen any information on the return of the razor wheels. I thought the last I had heard they were supposed to be in around the end of the year. Did I miss something, or does anyone have any new updates?
  2. The 40th anniversary wheels shown were actually done for my car when I couldn't find the Razor replacements. I have had a lot of compliments on the wheels and felt that they turned out really nice. I had some damage on one of the wheels when I received it but Zach took care of it right away for me.
  3. if your car is equipped with the rear brake coolers check those. They tend to make a lot of noise where the two pieces fit into each other.
  4. Yes he is a good man and I appreciated him keeping the car all of these years. I hope to pass it and my 40th Anniversary Gt500 to my own kids some day. Problem is I have 5 kids so I'm not sure how that is going to work out!
  5. They ended up setting mine at 26 1/2" in the front and 28 1/2" in the rear. The front end looks good sitting so low, but it rubs on everything so I am going to have to have it reset. Plus from the side I think it has too much rake to it. Thanks again for the replies. I will try to get pics posted soon!
  6. Thanks for the reply. I will check my measurements later. I think that they set the front too low. I know that they said they would need to go a little higher in the rear since I am now running 10" rims with 295's so that I wouldn't have any issues with tire rub. I tried to post some pics yesterday but I didn't have any luck. I will have one of my "kids" help me try and post them. They are a lot more knowledgable about computers than I am! Thanks again for the measurements! Your car looks great by the way.
  7. Does anyone know what the correct ride height is on the 40th cars? I have mounted the new wheels and tires and am in the process of having the ride height reset (.The new wheels and tires that I had made for the car are different than the original sizes) I am looking for the distance from the ground to the lip of the wheel wells for both front and rear of the car. If anyones knows this measurement or could take the time to measure theirs, I would appreciate it. Thanks
  8. Thanks for all of your responses. I have talked to Bangastang and they are sending me a template. They said they could cut out for the CSM plate, but I would have to mark exactly where I want it. As for my car, it is #041. Shelby said that it was actually the 25th one that was built, but #41 is the number that they assigned it. It is a black hardtop. It has a short throw shifter, 3:73 gears, a carbon fiber JLT intake and tune, and has been signed by Mr. Shelby. Some of you may remember that I was looking for some silver razors for it a few months ago because I hit something in the road that caused considerable damage to the wheels. Well I never found any wheels, so I had a set of Boze Tach wheels made for it in all brushed silver. It took several months to get them, but they look great on the car! I put 8.5" rims on the front with the 255/35/20, and went with 10" on the rear with 295/35/20. I stayed with the Pirelli tires. What a difference! I am still looking for a set of razors for it, just so that it is correct if I ever go to sell it (but probabably never will). But I figure that if I couldn't find the razors, I might as well put something cool on it! My car has a little over 10,000 miles on it, so I do drive it when I can. I also have a 1965 Mustang convertible (my very first car!). My daily driver is a black 2009 F-150. I also have a matching black w/ silver stripe 100th Anniversary Harley that looks like the Shelby, and a black 1993 Dyna Wide Glide, (also my first). (My wife says that I am going through a mid-life crisis with all of my black vehicles, but what does she know!) I am just a motorhead at heart. I have owned several Mustangs and many Fords over the years, but the Shelby has always been my favorite. I just love cool cars and cool bikes. Now I just need a bigger garage! I will post some pics of the Shelby as soon as I can. I don't have any pics yet with the new wheels on it.
  9. Maybe my question did not come out right. What I was looking for was an aftermarket dress up cover that was striped to match the 40th, and had the cut out for the 40th plate that is on the radiator support. As far as the hood struts, I was under the understanding that they had to be used to replace the prop rod, but I did not figure that they were specific to the 40th cars. After posting the question, I did find a company called Banga Stang that seems to have what I am looking for. Has anyone had any experience in dealing with them?
  10. Where can I find a radiator support cover and hood struts for a 40th car? I remember seeing pics of some of you having them striped and lettered to match, but I don't remember where they came from. Please post pics if you have them. Thanks
  11. I would like to offer a big thank you to Jer Gervasi at Shelby Performance parts for his help and sincere interest in getting a problem resolved for me. It is very much appreciated. Sincerely, John Czarnecky
  12. Thanks for the reply. I tried to post the other day without success, I'll give it another try.
  13. Truly a great story. I suppose that is why I wanted mine back so much. There is a lot of history with that old car, and it is fun to have it back now. I am at a different age (50) now and I appreciate the car in so many different ways than I did when I was 15. I get so much enjoyment out of peoples reaction to the car and the story behind it. If someone could explain to me how to post some pics, I would be happy to do so.
  14. Actually I have an early 40th, it is #041, and I have owned it since new. Love it!
