This was Jim H's car, won Division 1 Premier first time out at a SAAC Event.  Jim did SAAC concours judging on '67's for a few years.

(Learned a lot about '67's helping on the restoration of this car.)

Mine look a lot like the hood bumpers on radiator support.   May be the same part?

Completed on October 23, 1967, and shipped new to Latham Ford in Latham, New York, this 1967 Shelby GT500 was one of the last cars to issue forth from the Shelby American Los Angeles Airport facility before its closure. Ford engineers had added volume to the 1967 Mustang through the front bulkhead to accommodate the 390 CI FE big-block engine for the new Mustang GT, so it was natural for Carroll Shelby to add even more punch to his GT. Drawing on the Police Interceptor 428 CI version of the FE engine, Shelby added two rear-mount Holley 600 CFM 4-barrel carburetors on an aluminum intake manifold and capped it off with his signature finned-aluminum Cobra valve covers and air cleaner; thus, the Shelby GT500 was born. The 1967 Shelbys were the first with custom body styling, incorporating an extended nose section, functional body-side scoops and an upswept tail section that combined for a racy silhouette. A full roll bar with twin inertia-reel safety harnesses headlined the Deluxe Mustang interior, which also incorporated a fold-down rear seat, 140 MPH speedometer, 8,000 RPM tach and Stewart Warner oil-pressure and amp gauges. Shelby No. 3206 has been with the same caring owner for almost 35 years. According to the car’s Shelby Registry listing, he purchased it “after a weekend of racing at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.” Then, as now, the car showed just 23,000 original miles and still wore the small-letter Goodyear Speedway 350 tires on Shelby aluminum 10-spoke wheels. Finished in Wimbledon White with a black interior and optioned with a 4-speed manual transmission, the car underwent an extensive restoration, after which it won a Division 1 Premiere Award at SAAC 31 in 2006. It holds a special place in Shelby history as being built in the last week of operation of the Shelby LAX production facility.

The images I have seen of unmolested used 427 Cobra cast iron exhaust manifolds show a AC Cars part number cast into them. AC Cars supplied the cast iron two branch exhaust manifolds for HP289 engines in Cobras.
