1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang Restoration Project

Here are some more pictures from our '66 GT350 Shelby Restoration Series.  Look for more of these detail shots next week!

RH Front Frame Rail Markings on the Shelby.

This image shows the darker red primer / sealer that was found under the frame rails at the front of the  GT350.  Lots of folks call this "primer."  I guess it is primer since it is over bare metal, but it is more like a sealer, and it is a bit glossy-certainly not flat.

Another look at that RH Front Frame Rail Marking.

Here is a nice look at the salmon colored / pink primer / sealer that was found on the underside of 6S033.  This color extends farther towards the front of the Shelby than we expected.

The outer part only of the front frame rails were galvanized on the 65-66 Mustangs.  The inner floor frame support (front part shown above) was also galvanized.

Here is a look at that galvanized coating after glass beading.  This will have to be stripped further by sanding.

The outer rocker panel was also galvanized on the Mustangs.

The box area covers in front of the rear leaf spring mounts were also galvanized on the Mustangs.

There was talk on the SAAC Forum about some of the carryover Shelbys having a front LH Ford VIN stamping that would be hidden by the fender once the fender was installed.  Here is an example.

This "X" shows where a factory spot weld was supposed to be applied, but was missed.
