If you have been reading our Blog, you are familiar with our green 1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang.  It's a fairly original car that we have chosen to clean up and keep as a "driver".  The original engine has never been out. We decided to remove it for cleaning and painting.  The last owner painted the block and heads black, and we wanted to restore it back to the original blue.

The under hood area and fender aprons will be only cleaned and not painted, again, trying to keep an original look.  Here are some pictures of the engine removal along with some clean up of a few parts.  Take a look at the captions for more information.

Everything is ready to come out!

This image shows the assembly date on the T10 transmission in the 1966 Shelby.  "C" in March - "1" is the day - "6" is 1966.  The last "2" is probably the shift.

The hood hinges were cleaned to reveal their original finish.  The camera flash makes them appear a bit light in this image.
