1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Vibrations at 50 miles per hour and up.

An old trick for driveshafts is to install a hose clamp. You then rotate the hose clamp and determine if it reduces your vibration. It's not perfect but a relatively simple approach to narrow things down.

Seeing Coralsnakes link......the Mach2 looks like the Intermeccanica in the front and side with a Lotus Europa in the rear

New to me also - thanks for posting.

Anybody recognize where the photos were taken?

Bumper on that first pic definitely reminded me of the Mach 2

- Phillip



Frank Reisner's company Intermeccanica had the Griffith/Omega/Italia.....I believe the car was started in 1965 and debuted in NY 1966. Sure looks like many of the styling cues of the Mach 2 were taken from Intermeccanica

BAT has an incredible peanut gallery.

Some of the commenters swing for the fences. For the newbie they give great insight into the cars being offered.

He also had a Z8 and an earlier Miura.

Never knew about the Cobra tho.

Intensely private man.

Coolio......a P400 guy as well.

Do you know the colour and if it was in Canada or CA?

Holly wheeled that car like a savy veteran.........and it's blown!!!!

Kudos to Lee for inviting her.....and some of the guys for preparing the car to ensure it would stand tall on the rally.

Great memories and big smiles all around.
