Thanks for the pic & sounds like they crashed 3 cars all together in the one incident .

Saw some additional pics on facebook.  Looks like the Camaro remote-started and ran into the back of the Shelby and pushed it into the Corvette.

I remember hearing that drums could be re-sleeved, like an engine cylinder. 

Looks like this place does them?  https://www.jgrelining.com/

Can't remember where I read it, maybe in Mark's notes or website, but Friedman did not take these photos.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Speaker delete - Part of radio delete

Hi Charles,  I agree with you.  I believe the better term is "radio block off plate".  However, contrary to your post, many hobbyist refer this plate as "radio delete", right, wrong or indifferent.  It is the common speak of the hobby.  I will try to mend my speak on the subject.  Thanks for the correction.

Just pointing it out, not intending anyone to change what they call it.  One of those pervasive misconceptions.   ;D ;D

Just a technicality, but a radio was not a 'delete' item for 65-68 (and probably later), it was an option.  If the checkbox wasn't checked on the order sheet for a radio, the car didn't get one. 

A heater was a 'delete' item as it was standard equipment.

Have not seen an original car with blanks as described.

Not mine   Hipo 289 Heads  date 7H23  on E-Bay  334673474563

Very late 7H (August '67) dates with slotted pushrod holes for rail rockers... probably were service replacements.

I also doubt from the lousy stamping job on the engine that it's not really a K block.

Looks like a coupe Dearborn VIN, which were usually crooked like that.

The door plate codes are likely a fabrication since it's a reproduction plate.

5S146 is still around, according to registry, restored in 2008.  I sent a message to Howard with the info...

 ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Makes no sense at all for a '65 number plate to be on a tribute '66.

Very cool Brian, thanks!

A compilation of all these interviews would be 'book worthy'... maybe something for SAAC to consider?
