1965 GT350/R-Model / Factory Rear Sway Bar Kit
« on: August 02, 2020, 05:39:44 PM »
Got a question about what appears to be a really obscure factory part; does anyone KNOW what the S1MK-5483-K Rear Stabilizer Bar Kit actually looks like (better yet, does anyone have any pictures of a real one, either installed or laying on the garage floor)? I have a factory invoice that shows two of these sway bar kits being sold to Dale Wood in August 1966. I want to build one for my 1966 Mustang A-Sedan race car that is currently in the middle of a long term refurbishment, and I'd like to put it back to more of a late 60s configuration rather than using a lot of contemporary stuff.

Thanks,
Dave

Southeastern Virginia Region SAAC / Ford Carlisle 2020
« on: August 02, 2020, 02:16:22 PM »
A number of us from Virginia made the annual trek to Ford Carlisle (albeit a couple of months late....). The number of vendors was down some, but the event was still very well attended, lots of people in the swap area (particularly Friday) and the show area was packed on Saturday. Not a huge number of early Shelbys, but still a number of them (including Jim Walsh's green 66, and Bill Collins inventory in the swap area, as well as a later blue Tiger). Ran into a bunch of the Shelby guys there too. See the below link to my photos:

Southeastern Virginia Region SAAC / January SVSAAC Holiday Event
« on: January 20, 2020, 05:08:38 PM »
The Southeastern VA SAAC held it's Holiday gathering at my house in Smithfield a week ago Saturday. We had a really good turnout of people (65 or so) and old cars (18 or 20, including Mike Barber's not often seen 69 Boss 302, as well as a number of 66-68 GT350s, Cobra replicas, Mustangs and a two owner 69 Cougar). Tim Kilinski organized a 1-1/2 hour cruise that ended at my house at 430PM (6-7 cars), so naturally it rained at 5PM (only for 15 min or so). Plenty of BBQ and Chili, so no one went away hungry. In addition, a number of my engineers with young children came out, so I had a living room full of kids giving my 1/32 scale slot car set a real workout (the big race was Jerry Titus R-Model vs Wendell Scott's 67 Ford stock car). See the attached photos.

A number of us from VA participated in the 2019 GT350 tour at the end of October/early November, which was based in Ridgedale MO at the Big Cedar Lodge, and included four days of driving all over Northwestern Arkansas. See the link below for my photos from the tour.

Several member of the Southeastern VA SAAC participated in our December club event, a tour originating at historic Fort Monroe in Hampton VA. Greg and Kristie Bradner planned and led the tour, which ended at their home in Yorktown. We met at the parking lot across from the Chamberlain Hotel, right on the Chesapeake Bay- it was nice and clear, but cool and windy. We had a number of participants and old cars, including Greg and Kristie with their red/gold 66 Hertz, Tim and Leslie Kilinski with their white/blue 66 GT350, Rob and Val Farabaugh with their 68 GT350, Nolan Beck and his wife with their 65 GT350, Tom and Roxanne Bryant with their 69 Fairlane Cobra, Bruce Turlington with his son in law Kenny Bradshaw in Bruce's green Superformance Cobra, Sara Kilinski in her black Cobra replica and me in my blue/white 66 GT350. Joe and Polly Robinson (in their daily) met us at the Bradner's after we arrived. After taking photos at a number of locations on the fort, we drove through Phoebus and Wythe down to Chesapeake Ave which runs along the Hampton Roads (where the famous battle of the ironclads happened during the Civil War), then back through downtown Hampton and up to Yorktown to the Bradner's, where they fed us well. This was more of an urban tour, rather than the country drive we have done in the past, but we were fortunate that traffic is light on weekends in the areas we drove. See the photo link below:

Many thanks go out to the Bradners for organizing this event and having us into their home for our December club event.

Made a run down to Charlotte back in August, stopped by the Mustang Owners Museum. The first floor was about 85% full at that time (nothing upstairs yet), may be more in there now. Not much in the Shelby world, but quite a number of interesting Mustangs, well worth the visit, See the link below.

  This past labor day weekend, in addition to hitting the MCA Grand National in Fredericksburg, a number of us also attended the Virginia Festival of the Wheel, held at The Boars Head Resort in Charlottesville VA. As part of the program (which included a driving tour and evening dinner on Saturday evening), on they held a Sunday invitational show, with various classes, including (but not limited to) American Sports cars, European sports cars, vintage race cars, brass era cars, early hot rods, etc. The featured make this year was Packard, of which at least 10 were in attendance. Approx 110-120 cars were shown. The highlight of the show was that Brant Halterman won Best of Show with his 65 GT350 (SFM5S162), which he and his son Gavin DROVE 1-1/2 hrs to the show. SAAC member (and owner of SFM6S2297) Bob Garland is involved in the organization of the show. See the link below for photos from Sundays show.

More photo catch up (see link below)- Brant rounded up a group of us to drive to SAAC-44 (pretty much all state highways through VA, WV and PA. Had four 66 Shelbys (my 66 was on a trailer- the others were driven) and one new (07 GT500). Not many photos of the road trip, but a lot at the convention.

It's been a while since I've posted anything worthwhile. However, I finally got a chance to post the photos I took at the MCA Grand National show held at the Fredericksburg Convention Center this past Labor Day weekend. Quite a number of Shelbys, Bosses and HP289 Mustangs, good balance of early and late model cars. I just went up for Saturday, took my 14 year old nephew along, he had a pretty big time. He likes all Mustangs, but he's partial to Fox bodied cars (he says they are more in his price range- haha). As an added bonus, the real Bullitt Mustang (the one Mecum is selling) was on display.

One of our local members (Rob F.) is about to get his 68 GT350 on the road. He bought it partially disassembled (motor and trans out, and part of the interior out as well) about a year ago. Car is 1456 (I think) and was used for SAAC open track events by a previous owner from 1980 to around 1998 or so. Has been lowered, Koni shocks and the power steering removed. Also has a built up (original shortblock) 302 with ported 289HP heads, Cobra hi-riser, 650 Holley and headers. He also installed an original Cobra scattershield. The original toploader with a Hurst shifter. Car has oldish but nice paint, part original/part restored interior, and the motor has already been run in on a stand. One of those cars that has never been in bad shape. I took these photos a couple of weeks ago, was almost ready to start the engine in the car, may be running/driving today. Cool thing is this is an original white/blue stripe car, should be pretty quick with the subtle mods that have been done to it. The Shelby world needs more nice driver cars like this on the road.

Last Saturday, a number of our members did a road tour starting at the Bradner's home in Yorktown VA, heading to Jamestown via the Colonial Parkway, and stopping at the Williamburg Jamestown Airport for lunch. Afterwards, they drove down to the final destination the Kilinski's home near Smithfield via the ferry and Route 10. Had 12 cars participating, including three early GT350s and three Cobra replicas. A little cool out but the rain held off. Was a nice time, and very low key.
