Just the Details...1966 Shelby GT350 Restoration 6S933

1966 Shelby SFM6S933 is another project in the shop at Maple Hill Restoration. We have other posts on the Blog here about the car. Just to recap, like all of the cars, we will be involved with the research and, of course, will be supplying the parts for this project. This is a fantastic, rust free car, but was painted white at one time. When Jeremy picked it up from the customer, it had already been disassembled. Fortunately, many of the original parts are in super condition and everything was saved.

After working on some other projects that we have posted about here on our Blog, Jeremy is back on this car with the goal of completely glass beading it and getting it in primer.  During this process, all of the primer colors, sealers, paint patterns, markings, etc. are carefully documented.  All mounting holes, particularly for the sheet metal screws are checked and repaired if needed during this process also.  This make reassembly a whole lot easier!

We have tons of pictures.  This is the first post about this process, so please subscribe to our Blog to keep checking out the process.

This is a Sapphire Blue GT350 without LeMans stripes.  Fortunately, there is a lot of nice original paint on the dash.  It is being carefully saved in order to match the exact original color.

Take a look at the captions for more information and be sure to check out our next post showing the red primer underside colors along with some original markings.

It is very interesting to note the traces of yellow paint under the dash near the area where the export brace is attached on the other side at the cowl. We have seem this yellow paint on several '65 and '66 GT350s.  1966 GT350 Shelby Mustang.
