We have another update today on the restoration of 1966 Carryover GT350 Shelby 6S033. Again, it's one of the early '66s that originally started as a '65 model Mustang. As a reminder, you can read more about these cars at www.carryoverGT350.com.

Our last update was just a week ago, but if you missed it, click here.

The original quarter window moldings were sent out to be anodized. They came back looking fantastic...very pleased with the results! The original plexiglas was sanded and polished, so it was re-used.

The "wrapping" on the rear brake lines was originally found on 6S033. At first, it was thought to be something a previous owner added. We then discovered that most carryover Shelbys had this feature. Apparently, it was added so the metal brake line would not rub against the traction bar bracket that was welded to the rear end housing.

The routing of the rear parking brake cable is unique to the late '65 production Mustangs. The attaching clips are also unique to this production time.

The original side scoops required a bit of work, but they were restored and re-used.

Most of the remaining photos show the trunk area. It's now ready for the jute sound deadener that was originally installed on top of the gas tank, the trunk mat, and then the mounting of the spare wheel and tire.
