What's the issue? If you're expecting or wanting a quiet pleasure drive, drive something else.

Yes, coming from the more civilized world of C2 Corvette Sting Rays and late '60s Shelbys the '65 GT350 is a real challenge for a nice sedate cruise to the grocery store. It steers like a truck, rides like a stagecoach, and you really have to slam it into the gears. It is loud, and rough, and so is a nice departure from my usual vintage driving equipment.  It is similar to my '63 Z06 fuelie tanker though.  I am still getting used to it, and swapping the Blue Dot tires for radicals did make it much better. I need more seat time, but I am getting it.

The old Detroit Lockers, say those made prior to 1985, are noisy and I love the sound they make! However about 1985 the unit was redesigned for quieter operation. Any of those that you buy now (other than the full competition "H" series) are utterly quiet.
