I sold a 215 qjet almost 2 years ago now..  Regret it now but what's done is done.

Better flow numbers on the 68 heads. Seat of the pants may felt better, probably cut close to the same times. They were high 12-low 13 cars with a steep rear gear, street tires and corked headers. Very respectable times even in this day and age...comparing apples to apples, naturally aspirated mills.

do you have the POP? you can determine if the quadrajet you will need is a carter or a Rochester
I was also ready to offer you an earlier E dated manifold - as I believe I still have a spare, I just hadn't gotten around to looking

Glad to see you found your original
Thanks a lot Chris. I appreciate the thought. Unfortunately no POP. She came with a Rochester 4MV carb though. 7029215. That's what came on the 350hp 396 (L34) with a manual trans. Hopefully I can find one at some point without having to re-mortgage the house.

I bought a 69 z-28 rally sport orange w/ black stripes , but it never seemed to run as good as the 68 z.

Thats because 8's are superior..  Classic... 8)

First of all, congratulations on your first post.

Number one thing for me would be to make sure everything is safe before you take it out on the road. 

Drain out the old fuel and replace that.

Take a look at the engine oil on the dipstick and see how it looks.  Change if needed.

Carb may leak fuel when you try to start it, but might be OK too.  Just check and be ready with a fire extinguisher close by. Having someone else there too would be a good idea.

Once you get it running, make sure the brakes work.  Check the lines to make sure there are no visible leaks.

Just a few ideas to get you started.  I am sure others will post some helpful information.
