I am not sure why people do not put their car on this forum first, when they would like to sell their car? If you can get the same price here and not pay fees, you would be doing both the buyer and seller a favor. At least try here first and if it does not sell then do auction houses. Why not sell it here? Or do you actually think you will get more at an auction....? Remember fees....Or do you just want too much and are afraid you will let it go to cheap? Remember, you can come down.

Typically, people put their cars through online or in person auctions, because they believe they will get more return, even after paying seller fees. Even some of the faithful from this site have moved to the auction route. In the end, itís all about marketing / visibility; which generally leads to a higher sales price.

Just my 2 cents

Mine did, nut worked loose and the wheel popped-off.  That'll get your attention real quick!

...wow!!!  I'd have to recover the driver's seat.  ;)

It's interesting that you posted this, Brian.  I recently looked out of curiosity, and was amazed at the numbers / increase on 66 Shelbys (again, non-Hertz, Carryovers, etc.).

It does seem that 66s have gone up quite a bit in value, and the same could be said for 65s and 67s - I haven't looked at 68s and beyond.

Incredible!

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: t5 conversion question
« on: May 13, 2021, 12:14:46 AM »
I did the conversion myself almost 2 years ago. I ordered all my parts through Modern Drive Line. I used the original bell housing and had a new driveshaft built per MDL. As Steve mentioned below, I installed the tranny, took the measurements requested, and they shipped me the new drive shaft in no time.

As others have said: one of the best improvements Iíve made to the car! And, as also mentioned, the T5 1st gear is short for a stock 3.89 rear ended. Not impossible to live with, and my bigger challenge would be the 5th gear ratio. The throw from 4th to 5th is long (RPM wise). Iíd love to shorten up the distance between 4th and 5th, but I believe the newest tranny addresses both 1st and 5th.

I wonít ever go back. The original tranny sits safely on the shelf.

Hope this helps!

Mr. Horseshoe, one of the questions was total cost. Could you comment on that?

Thanks,
Steve

Oops! Good catch, Steve!

I believe it was $2,500-$2,800 all in for parts only. And, that was for ALL the parts, to include the cross member, new driveshaft, new clutch, etc.

I was able to take the R to its first Cars and Coffee today. It was the first Cara and Coffee since March of last year. What a great turnout!

I made some additions to the exterior (13 is my favorite number 😉). And, I saw the best license plate today.

Cheers!
