Attached is a photo of the J-hook that holds the spare tire in place, that I have in my "67". Is this the correct one for a July 67 built San Jose car? Next, is there a difference in the ones used for the 66 model and the hold downs for the 67 model year. Anyone have a photo of an original 66 type J-hook that demonstrates the type and length, and a 67 of the same so I may compare them? Thanks in advance. Denny

Not a J hook expert, but for 67 it should be 3/8 X 16.    The length is about 9 1/4".    Threads not all the way down only 3 to 3 1/2".  No sharp bends or flattened area around hook area.   Scott Fuller doesn't have it.   I have heard is similar to hold down kit sold at the time as service part but don't know the part # and have never seen one.  An original 66 or 67 styled steel wheel hook may be very close - C6OZ-1448-A.   A lot of photos I've seen of original cars have the larger washer on top without tabs but not all.

Denny, here is what came in the trunk of no. 83.  I always assumed it was correct for a '67, but I may be wrong.  If someone could confirm, that would be great.

Thanks.

Here is my original hold down plate and J hook. Pretty sure about there originality as where shoved down side well with Ausco Jack. Plate is 4 inches in diameter and J hook is roughly 7 inches. Wheels are 10 spokes and stored face down.

Cheers

Thanks.

Confirmation given. Brian,yours is the typical style seen in 67 Shelby's. The hook end on yours is a little bent but otherwise correct. The disc has to do if you have the steel wheels (typically larger diameter) or deluxe wheels (typically smaller). The disc you show is more typical of the steel wheel on a hubcap car. Sometimes they get mixed up I guess.

It fits the rest of the car!  Thanks Bob.
