Don't worry, it's staying in the Flareside. LiL-FF is making sure of it.

I spent a few hours today detailing it (remove barn dust) and getting the engine running. The engine runs quite well but there is either a blockage in the fuel line or the fuel pump has gone bad. Squirrel got a hold of the insulation on the hood, so I will have to find a replacement.

The hide-away head light covers are now working, too!!!

Cool car but you can keep the 5.5 mpg and no power from that smogged out 460. I don't miss working on cars from that era.

Tell me more about this "Sister" set up..............;
  • Is there such a thing already built for sale for this model 460?
  • Is this a bolt on adder, or do I have to modify my existing manifolds?
  • Who has the expertise around here who could give me the run-down?
  • What are we talking? 2-3K? 6-8K?
I'm going to keep this car as original as possible, but I don't mind doing bolt on swaps and storing original parts.

That being said, and the fact that I am an , I don't trust my taste in wheels and tires.
What do you think this needs as far as wheels?

I'm thinking 18 to 20 inch non spoked (solid) rims with a low profile performance tire. The stock rims and tires are black steel rim, with brushed solid aluminum hubcaps, and 235 75 15 Arizona white walls.
I just want street performance and cruseability that looks good. I wont be drag racing or doing burnouts. (I don't think)
