Just the Details...1966 Shelby GT350 Shocks

This is one of those "geeky" posts about some details that perhaps some folks may not be interested in.  If you like original Mustang and Shelby details though, you may want to read on!

Anyway, those orange/red Koni Shocks are, of course, closely associated with the early model Shelby Mustangs.  The Koni's were originally installed on all of the 1965 GT350s and the early 1966's also.  Later in '66 the Koni shocks were replaced by another adjustable shock apparently manufactured by Gabriel.

We just purchased 1966 Shelby 6S1732, and we were lucky to get several boxes with most all of the parts that were ever replaced on the car.  One of the boxes included the two front original shocks.

As you can see, they are stamped with some numbers, a FoMoCo logo and a date code.  They still wear some of their original blue paint.

The rears are missing.  If anyone has any for sale, please let us know!

FoMoCo adjustable front shock originally installed on some later production 1966 GT350 Mustang Shelbys. Date stamping reads "P6BD".  Not sure about the "P", but the "6" probably represents 1966, "B"=February, and the "D" maybe the 4th week.
