You probably not going to get alot of help on that car .... this site is mostly about the 15-18 GT350 models .... you need to go to site that specializes in those years of cars

I have 1800 miles on 2017 GT350. When I was tracking it the dipstick kept coming out of the filler tube and enough oil to make a sizable cloud of smoke. Ford can't find anything wrong. Any ideas?

@  Fantiniastic : (31 December 2017 - 01:10 PM)

@Hell on Wheels I have just over 1000 miles on mine and I experience the same thing - don't think it's abnormal. I've read its an expected behavior of this engin

@  smokum : (30 December 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Try calling the hot line at FRPP .....

@  Hell on Wheels : (28 December 2017 - 09:58 PM)

My 2017 GT350 has 4000 miles on it. At about 2600 it started ticking upon acceleration and deceleration. There is a sweet spot in between. I've been told this is piston slap. Problem is it doesn't do it only when cold and doesn't go away when warmed up. This sound makes me cringe every time I drive the car. This sound can't be normal but Ford can't diagnose it. Help?

Anyone want to sell me their factory car cover?

@  Fantiniastic : (24 December 2017 - 11:18 AM)

I've been driving around for the first 2 weeks of owning this car in normal mode with the exhaust, steering and shocks in sport. Had no idea how aggressive the ECU mapping was in SPORT. Holy cow!

@  smokum : (20 December 2017 - 01:00 PM)

mine isnt that bad .... no where near it ..... but once i reved to high and didnt have the clutch fully engage and got that smell .... it was my fault .. it did go away after a day ... i know better .. anyway go to your Ford store .... the clutch is covered for 12 mths or 12000 miles for defects ..... you might get lucky and get it replaced under warranty

@  Hitman1 : (19 December 2017 - 03:15 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 with just over 3000 miles has a burnt clutch/ burnt rubber smell coming from motor area and when A/C is turned on the cockpit is filled with the burnt smell. Regardless if I've been driving it or just sitting in the garage. Horrible smell emanating from engine bay... Any ideas? FYI - The clutch seems fine, no issues and has been driven correctly and easy in the first 3000 miles.

@  smokum : (14 December 2017 - 02:35 PM)

Rprout, my car consumes a quart about every 1200 miles give or take. I drive it aggresively on the streets using lots of high RPMS ... according to ford this is within normal limits of the design

@  Rprout : (13 December 2017 - 07:39 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 consumed 1qt in 920 miles - spirited street driving only - I see at least one person here with oil consumption issues. Anyone else? Remedies?

@  Foon : (08 December 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

@  smokum : (07 December 2017 - 03:30 PM)

Congrats tipmartinez ..... incredible car isnt it

"In 1965 I was 20 years old.  And that's a very vulnerable age for a car guy." 

 

Love it!  I know exactly what he means.  Only I was 10 in 1967 when I saw my first GT350 in my Dad's auto shop.  It was a green '67 and was imprinted in my brain just as the gentleman mentions.  Never did I imagine that 50 years later I'd have a '17 of my own.  I'm not 10 anymore, but I feel like a 10 year old kid enamored with the Shelby name.  

 

Thanks for the video.  I'm still grinning.

I was 11 years old when I saw a 1971 Yellow with black stripped Mach 1. I fell in love! that is why I get my GT350- I even found the guy that own that car and now we email each other often! He sold the car in 1982 and regrets doing so!

Seems like we were both "imprinted" at a young and tender age!

Nice idea but trouble with MSN, not car guys.  It is a modified 1966 GT350 (admitted by owner) not a stock 1965 GT350.  It has a modified engine, dash, wheels, front end, etc.  Beautiful car but at least you would think that they would get the title correct if they understood the original Shelby GT350.

Anyone else besides me not like the young guy? Clearly he’s not old enough to appreciate that car (and makes me question his loyalty to the one he owns), but come on dude. I was annoyed when he complained (or commented...whatever) on how long the shifter throw is, the smells, etc. Some people’s kids...sheeesh!

Today's newer generation. Personally, I don't associated with many of them especially at work. Too material driven and don't really want to work hard to get things. They tell me all the time that their parents will get them a house and car - it's like they expect this from them! I would never ask my dad for a house or new car if I was living on my own! Poor work ethics as well! I better stop before you really get me going...

Hahahahaha! I get it dude. I was listening to that idiot the whole time just thinking...man, if i got the opportunity to drive that thing, comparing it to my new one would be the last thing on my mind. I wouldn’t even think my car superior anyways, but if I did, I’d keep my mouth shut and embellish the moment.

If I was driving that 1966 GT350 let's just say I wouldn't need any Viagra  :)
