Would you know of the recipe from Kelbos restaurant?
Sorry, I do not have it and I had no success finding it.
I believe that Kelbo’s was at 11434 W. Pico Blvd., West Los Angeles. I found a photo of their menu here:
There's an article here that calls the dressing "King Kelbo’s Fifteen Hundred Island Dressing": Los Angeles Times
Another site calls it "ten thousand island dressing" but most mentions of it just call it "Thousand Island Dressing." The Kelbo's menu just calls it "Kelbo's Famous Salad Dressing."
I'll post this for reader input.

I am trying to locate Jim Kelley, whose father Tom was the founder
I believe he lives in Socal
Might make interesting detective work!
I did a quick Google search and found these possible leads. Check them out. One is an 2014 interview with Jim Kelley. Apparently he was in musical group with Joe Nania. He would be about 80 or so now if still living. He might be James P. Kelley of Castaic, California.
You'll have to take it from here.
