Maybe one of these days I'll show up in car #81 and steal some of Steve's thunder. That is if I can get up at the crack of dawn. Without Steve, my car wouldn't be running and I would be driving it there

I was looking through all the various photo albums and caught this custom '67 peeking out from behind a Mercedes (Sept '15 album).
This has to be one of the best looking "R Model" noses ever done for a '67 Shelby.

You aren't kidding Rich!  That nose actually looks great, and I don't usually feel that way about them.  Looks even better sans LeMans Stripes.

Rich,

My 1967 GT350 came with the added duct openings when I bought it in 1978. They were actually ducted to direct air to the front brakes.  There was also a battery cable running from the engine compartment to the passenger side of the trunk, even though the battery was in the correct location.  I have had no luck finding early owners from Northern California area.  It was obviously raced somewhere. It was painted a bright orange, so I am surprised that no one has ever responded to my requests for information.

I do think it looks good and is practical, if the brakes are being put to work in a racing application.

I really appreciate those larger duct openings following the later '65 R Model style. It as if someone gave thought to how SA would have made them should they have made a competition model in '67.

Dennis if your car had them too, and looked the same as this car, I wonder if this was an aftermarket nose that was available for purchase as is. I can't recall ever seeing a bright orange '67 racing in any past photos. (Most stuff I have is in B&W. I have a large file filled with R model and other Shelby Mustang race car photos. There are very few '67's.) I recall Eric "Kranky" was chasing some of these at one time. (We have not heard from him in a while on the forum). Maybe he might know of something related to your car.

rich,

Though they do look very much alike, I would be very surprised if these were offered over the counter as a completed unit. I do believe that the bits and pieces to create the changes were most likely available somewhere.  It would be interesting to know how long the car in the picture has had them in place. Like I said I am pretty sure that they were in place on my car going back to 1970s, as there were participation plaques from Camino Corvettes and other autocrosses in April and May 1970 in the car when I got io. Good braking is required for autocross events.

Just my two cents.

Dennis

I like the functional valance.

What I don't like is the bumper delete.
