Please tell me that you plan on replacing the grabber blue cap with a black one. My sensibilities are in a tizzy. Hysterical

Lol.  Blue cap is just temporary used during engine install.

Took the shelby for the first drive today with the rebuilt engine installed.  No issues or leaks.  It feels like a different and much better car.  Very strong, mild lope on cam, and runs much cooler than before.  Me likey.

Looks great!  Is there a performance factor reason for not going with the autolite 4300?

Thanks!  Yes, the autolite 4300 carb was less than 500 cfm I think.  No way it could flow enough for my new engine combo making 365HP.  I think the 4300 was an emission carb, not designed for performance.

Thanks carm for the compliment.  Did you ever get the correct color match for your grabber orange vert?
