Anyone know of a good Shelby resource guide? Colors, factory options, dealer options, stripe width and position, restoration dos and don'ts?

The back section of the Tony Branda catalog has some info in it.

The Shelby American World Registry would be the most complete reference available. It costs $125 and is available from http://www.saac.com and Tony Branda and other Mustang parts vendors. This book is a must for any serious Shelby Mustang or Cobra shopper.

Not many good books out there for Shelby's... maybe someone should put one together ;)

In general each one has its good points and bad. Best bet IMHO is to post specific questions here. since we have a number of qualified Shelby judges

Best current bets for references include Couchrans picture book (sorry Tom can't recall the title) and the newest SAAC Registry. A set of MCA judging rules or sheets for Shelby can be helpful also

The Registry is by far the best source. It even has illustrations for the stripe dimensions and lots of other great info. Also, stop by Barnes & Noble or one of the major book stores and check out Muscle Car History Shelby Mustang written by Tom Corcoran a long time Mustang writer and previous Editor at Mustang Monthly. It's published by Motorbooks International. You may want also check with the many companies that sell classic auto literature and pick up an original sales brochure. I see them on E-bay all the time. Also, Tony Branda is selling 1965-66 Shelby Mustang GT 350 Press Release Kit Portfolios. The 65 kit is $59.95 and the 66 kit is $39.95.
