Thumbs up J- Code GT/CS Raven Black on E bay

ITEM#130195260673 Someone please post link.

This is the second time around E bay for this car, it did not meet reserve last time at $13,500.00

Its a J-code Factory Raven black car(now dark blue) looks like a pretty solid project.

The foglights have both the posts and the Shelby pedestals under them.

So what your saying is that this blue CS should have only the posts or only the shelby pedestals, not both, right?

here is a picture of the car your talking about
and then there is an old picture of my car with the shelby pedestals

Yep, one or the other, but not both. Don't think I've ever seen that before.

Please clarify the 3 configurations: Marchal, Shelby with pedestals, posts. I'm confused

Here are the 2 proper installations.

On the left is the correct Lucas installation on the posts.

On the right is the correct Marchal installation. The Marchals do not have pedestals or posts because they attach to the bracket in the grille, as on the red car.

Oops, sorry Don, I meant "on the maroon car".

David's car (in the previous post) shows Lucas lights on Shelby pedestals

To clarify, the pic on the right shows the standard mounting brackets that came in the box with those lights. (not correct for a CS) They are not "Shelby posts". No such thing. Shelby just utilized the Lucas brackets. Correct me if I'm wrong. N

Correct, but since most people don't know what part was supplied in the Lucas box we call them Shelby pedestals since they were used on the '68 Shelbys.

On the left is a picture of Marchal lights (they may be clones since they look larger than normal Marchals) installed on GT/CS posts. This layout is not correct either. Nor are the amber lenses.

On the right is a photo of how the lights are installed on the eBay car. Looks like it has been done before!

OK, just so I understand this. My Lucas lights have about a 1" square chrome base mounted directly to the lower grille panel as shown in davidathan's photo above. Can I assume this is correct?

Here's a link to the pedestals that I ordered from Tony Branda - I'm assuming these are correct as I am a long way from installing them yet.

(well that link button didn't quite work how I thought it would - but, you can always paste the address to your browser!)

Has anyone used these particular parts from Tony Branda?

No, not correct for a CS.

I think that was a fair offer considering the work the car needs.
