1965 GT350/R-Model / Re: 65 parts layout photo recreation

Anyone struck by the fact the parts have become too rare, precious and perfectly restored to merely set on the bare pavement for a photo?

The downside of the gas ones is if there is any breeze it blows the gas away from where it needs to be. On the rare chance you'll ever need it dry chemical is a surer bet.

1002???? A SA office? The production buildings were 1038 and 1042. There was also one across the field on Carter Ave but it is gone today and the road has been renamed Jefferson Way.

just been rebuilt by a well known industry expert.

I'd prefer it to have been rebuilt by a GT350 expert.

What's a Shelby without The Magnificent Sound of Internal Combustion?

You could pipe whatever engine sound you desire through the stereo - ala Mach-E.

The car plays an artificial audio track in the cabin and outside of it as you drive to make up for the lack of noise generated by its electric motors. The sounds are keyed to the mode the car is in, with some based on the rumble of a V8 engine.

Was this the Los Angeles airport site? I remember passing Hertz when we'd take my dad to LAX for business trips. I never could get him to rent me a GT350 though.

Worst slalom score ever. He never did take a cone on the left side.

Chevrolet was selling all the astronauts Corvettes on the cheap. They were the rock stars of the era and Chevy wanted them seen in the car that lived up to their devil may care fighter pilot persona.

Keep them armoralled I've heard of cracking problems with a lot of the repro tires.

I was in college in this time period. Was one of the unwitting participants in the first draft lottery. Pulling #366 took that monkey off my back, and the music here is essentially the soundtrack of most of my life. Love it.
Whenever one of our group got their draft physical notice we'd play Alice's Restaurant so we knew how to look and act our best. I was worried at being 1A and having my student deferment run out. They pulled 153 for my birthday. A friend was in the 130s and he got called up. Around 1972 I got a notice that my status had changed to 1H - age and marital status were such I would probably not be called. I'm still stuck in the 60s.

I recently purchased a 1966 Gt350 that was produced on 6-21-1966 and is missing the original carb. What would be the correct dated carb for that date build?

Thanks in advance.


Auto or stick? I know the Hertz cars used a different carb

Who signed the glove box? Doesn't have the correct trademark slash and crossbars under the signature.

What are you planning on doing with the engine? You don't need all that expense if you are building a stock motor. An old school cheap way around the expense of milling and threading the rocker stud bosses is to drill the head and rocker stud and install a roll pin in each one. Stay away from cheap chinese roller rockers.
