I am in the process of converting the rear of my 70 fastback to the Shelby rear end. I'm keeping the front the way it is with my shaker setup and Mach 1 sportlamps. Anyone ever seen this done before? If so, I'd love to see a picture. I was curious since I have seen so many 67's done this way. Any opinions on wheels for this ride? I think Magnums are far too common, and the Shelby rims don't thrill me at all. I had considered the Halibrand wheels (Gone in sixty seconds) but at 375$ a piece, I doubt it.
Thanks,
Dave

Dave,

I used the Shelby pieces on the rear of my 70 convertible when I went for cloning my Boss 302. I did not, however, use the taillight panel and lights plus the rear valance......

I like your idea. I would love to put the rear quarter extensions from Shelby on my 69 coupe. Also the fibreglass trunk lid. Any problems with this idea?...I mean just take the three bolts out of each extension and bolt the Shelby pieces on then take the 4 bolts out of the stock steel trunk and bolt on that fibreglass lid with the slight spoiler, right?...Is it any harder than this?...Any body done this?...I could use the rear qtr. extensions and trunk from a convertable right?

I'm pretty sure it's just that simple. Get ahold of a guy on this list named James Cowles. He sells fiberglass, or Tony Branda, or Mustangs Unlimited. But, Branda and M.U. will definately be back-ordered. Mr. Cowles didn't seem to be. I bought my tail light panel from him.
