I see -67's with and without it. Whats correct? There is no holes in my support for it, and there is no indication, that my support has ever been replaced.

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Saw some on a 65 6cyl. the other day. Have never seen any before that, or recall reqding anything about them..rubber strips on rad. support. Ones I saw were on right/passenger side.

Same thing with 68s. I've seen 6 cyl cars with them and BB cars with them also but no SB cars that look original.

As far as I remember, the only 67's to have the rubber radiator supports were either the big block cars with the larger radiators or the 6 cylinder cars. Regular 289's did not use them.

Yup, agree with above. We're original owners - 67 GT FB A code - never was any rubber strip atop the rad cradle. So SB V8's did not have 'em. Have seen pics or BB V8's that did.

My 67 shelby has it. It had the original staples still intact. My car is a GT350....

Yeah but my 67 GT 350 does not have it. No holes for the staples either....go figure.

My 67 GT350 has its original rubber strip and it also has the support around the heater blower motor, like the big block cars.

I've always wondered why the I6 cars had them but not the SBF? And now, I learned the BB cars had them!

Why?

I asked a guy about that and here's the answer:
"Those rubber strips were originally added to six cylinder cars to prevent carb-icing."

By the way - I found the holes for mine :)
