Never ceased to be amazed by how much money is out there, or is it debt??  ???

My friend purchased the same car from the original owner in 1976. Butternut yellow with black top, 350 SS, with SS hubcaps. Except his was an automatic on the column with a bench seat. Was destroyed shortly thereafter by a drunk who broadsided it. It must have been an early car, because I distinctly remember the SS 350 gas cap. I think that gas cap was superceded when the big block SS came out.

Here's my original for comparison

Yes, I know what you mean. At 900 it sounds like it's going to stall. Increasing by a couple hundred rpm make sit sound much smoother.

I'm idling at 900 rpm. Increasing the idle rpm will increase vacuum as well.

Looking at the article, I see an oil fill tube in the intake? Like pre-69. Maybe added to make it easier to add the oil?

I see it now. I didn't see it yesterday. It was blocked like a photobucket photo?

The sad thing is....someone may buy them thinking they got (doing my best Brooklyn Jewish accent) "such a deal".


Reading a book about that bridge. Washington Roebling (the chief engineer of the bridge) was one of those truly gifted people, definition of a civil engineer. A hero of the battle of Gettysberg as well. Little did I know.

Years ago I had my 302 re-done as I had ring failure in #7. I was excited to have that typical small block Chevy rear main oil leak finally fixed as well. About 3 months after I got it up and running again, the rear main oil drip returned. Oh well, the 302 still runs like you know what!!

Thats just the way my luck goes also. Right after I finished the resto on my 68 SSRS396 I had a small oil pan leak. I spent 5 years restoring the car and thought I was meticulous when I built the motor. I puled it back out and went to a one piece pan gasket. It was sealed up for about 300 miles and then the d@mn leak returned. That was almost 6000 miles ago, I keep telling myself I will get to it but its been almost 3 years now & I still havent had the time. It's just leaves a small drip on the floor about the size of dime after I've driven it a bit but it still drives me crazy.

Yup, that's a small block chevy. They changed the design in 1986 to eliminate the issue. I don't know if that did it or not?
