The link below shows a fantastic photo of Shelby parts on display. This was the only photo I could find of this display at the 3/30/68 Auto show in the (Nassau? NY Coliseum)
(click on the square box with 4 arrows below the photo to enable the zoom option. Then use the + and - to zoom in on the details.)

Notice the fiberglass 67 Shelby styled hood, shorter length, for Mustangs on the upper right and 67-68 fiberglass trunk and extension on a Mustang below it.
How about the CS logo blazer the both salesman are wearing?

Very cool picture. What is the item just above the lady wearing the shoulder belt?

It looks like 4 helmet visors mounted in a half circle (in assorted colors?) with a helmet hanging at the top.

I have one of those helmets in the Shelby box yet & the helmet was in a Shelby cobra plastic bag yet inside the box
. I got it from a professional motorcycle racer & he only bought it because of the snell rating or something as it would pass inspection for his class of racing & he never even owned a Shelby just racing motorcycles.
