Hey Dave,
    The original intake to SFM6S1342 is a #3 combination. Also, even though it is a little bit later car, the casting/assembly dates for the original engine block are fairly early (early-mid October 1965).

Supercar Engineering was real. Malcolm Durham (of Chevrolet drag racing and Strip Blazer fame) ran it, think it was in Bladensburg MD. Apparently the guys who designed the toy read drag racing magazines. The paint scheme is a knockoff of Bruce Larsons USA 1. Kind of a neat toy, actually.
Thanks, guys. There are a number of Shelbys around here (and I suspect in other highly populated areas) where guys took decent cars apart (years ago) to rebuild them mechanically or make them nicer, and stalled out. There are at least three or four in Tidewater that are on their way back (including my 69 GT350 conv) in a similar manner to Rob's. Let's face it, we ain't gonna live forever, so don't let the fear of criticism stop you from putting that Shelby out in the garage back together the best way you can afford and enjoy it while you can still do so. Also, a few more photos.

....and more photos.....
Some more photos from last Saturday.

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.

A couple more. The 67 GT350 belongs to Larry Barnett, the white/blue 66 GT350 (6S1358) belongs to Wayne Taylor, the red 66 GT350H (6S846) is Greg Bradner, blue ERA FIA Cobra-Byron Peterson, green Superformance- Bruce Turlington, and the black 427 replica is Tim Kilinski's.

A few more photos. I didn't get to run the tour this time, as I worked Saturday morning, so all of the photos I posted last night and in this post were taken by Tim and Leslie Kilinski. I did meet up with everyone at the Kilinski's at the end, and I have some photos from there I need to resize and post later.

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.
69 GT350, #362, close ratio 4 speed. Original Royal Maroon, White interior/top/stripe car.
