Man, your doing the total opposite of me! Haha, I'm working on the engine bay and set to drop a new sparkly engine in there and THEN get to the bodywork. My how I hate bodywork...
Nice Valve Covers
I bet those are pretty rare.
the 1408 should be abit more for power then my 1406. relatively new too right ? summit sells the rejetting kit for like $30 or something like that. and you can find the owners manual to figure out which combo for more lean or more power on google.
Well our engine runs fine which is why we haven't done it yet. I'll get some minor work done this spring, I need to change out the carb in intake, the ones on there now are designed for heavy track use only, not street use and it's a daily run-around for me so 12mpg isn't cutting it. Regardless though, it would be transformed into a big chrome jewelry box, I'll just keep it stock as we've tried to do with the rest of the car, and anything I take off goes into the cabinet in the garage with all the rest of the original parts that aren't on it now.
The only thing that's going to give me a royal headache is the air conditioning, it's got factory air in there, but it doesn't work and hasn't for 30 something years, so it's probably going to get expensive to fix it up and get it running, especially if I go with the original R12 instead of 134a.
I wouldn't think so, you can get yourself a brand new set of them from NPD for $60. :lol: Although they probably won't have the FoMoCo stamp on them.
