Easy/cheap stuff first:

I'd take a close look at the rear transmission mount. twocents

Next would be a u-joint, but I can't say I've ever heard one make that kind of noise. Won't hurt to re-check them.

Great video: that helps alot. up

Could it be the steel starter shield buzzing if equipped.

It sounds just like someone or something blowing on a piece of paper or thin plastic making a whistle like noise like we use to do when I was a kid, a long time ago shruggy

That's what I was wondering, cause the manual doesn't say anything about lash.

If the noise is present in neutral with the clutch depressed and enough road speed, the only thing that is rotating is the output shaft. I think the rear main bearing is a good guess.

Yes, along with anything beyond or driven by the tail shaft, such as the speedo pinion and such.
The bearing is certainly a suspect, even though the noise doesn't sound like a bearing.

Referring to the speedometer pinion adapter there.
the lash is darn close because the speedo works perfectly and there is zero discernable wear on the speedometer pinion.

That bushing (and the seal) were replaced last fall with Brewers stuff. Oil hole was even clocked correctly on it.

There are three different settings for the speedo adapter depending what tooth the speedo gear is. I think that is what he was referring to .

Yessir! :-)

Thanks. As far as the mount goes, it's also brand new from Brewer's, as is the crossmember. Since the transmission is an early 70's dual shifter mount type, I had to get one of Dan Brewer's crossmembers that has the late 60's bolt holes but the early 70's mount. Kind of a hybrid.
Worked beautifully.
Yep on the u-joints. I reckon I'll replace those just because I don't know how old they are now, even though as you say it doesn't sound like one. No real discernable slop in them, though.
I'll replace the slip yoke too just because.

Well, that's the other end of the spectrum (and other end of the transmission, of course) but I can't say definitely not, either.
Stranger things have happened.
I think the key to this mystery is what I was doing to the car when this occurred.
I pulled away easy from a stop sign, then tromped on it once underway. A fast grab of 2nd, dropped the clutch pretty hard and laid down two black strips, then heard the noise as I eased back off the throttle.
It's been there ever since, even though the car drives just fine.
I get it up over 50 and the "switch" gets flipped and the racket begins, every time.

How would you feel about putting the car on jack stands and trying to pin point the noise while in gear? I mean the rear end on the stands and running it up till it does it? Maybe putting phone on a stick on record, and move it around till you found where it was coming from.

Ah yes. the reed effect. We used blades of grass to do that. :-)

I'm glad you asked that. :-)
We did just that last weekend. Put the rear end up on 4 jackstands, then cautiously ran it up through the gears. I was "driving" (and praying not to go flying through the wall into the house) while a friend was outside, down on the floor watching and listening.
I ran the car all the way up to an indicated 70mph. Could not get it to make the noise.
It occurred to me later that the noise starts after the car has been driven about 5 miles, so I guess something has to get warmed up before it will make the noise - and we didn't do that while the car was on jackstands.
Oy.

Warm it up for 6 miles. Then 'drive' it on the jack stands.

Use a LONG steel rod to listen to different parts/areas of the trans to narrow down the spot. A long rod like a dowel or even a floor jack handle. Hold it to your ear like an automotive stethoscope.

Maybe a bearing is coming apart.

I would imagine if it was that, it would change in pitch with engine speed?

Could very well be the rear main bearing, although it doesn't sound like a bearing at least to me.
I might deploy your steel rod method of detection, but I think I'd rather take the shifter boot off and "probe" through that hole with a smaller rod.
The thought of anyone getting under the car with anything while it is in gear and hauling just doesn't sit well with me.

I've just picked up a Moroso transmission "plug" (pipe stub with plastic cap on the end) that I'm told will fit in the output seal in lieu of the slip yoke. I might try to see if I can dry run the thing in the garage with that.
Perhaps eliminating the driveshaft/yoke from the process might prove illuminating?

Yes, that is why the LONG ROD, or steel handle from the floor jack, keeps the person out from under the car.
