What size carb are you looking for ? I kept the carb from mine when I put the EFI on it. Hardly any time on it, and we were hanging on to it just in case David decided to pick up another project car. But we will be moving and I told him that we just need to sell the parts we have.

It is highly likely that the car is getting a 427...

I blame Tony.

Picking it up tomorrow. 69' "512" block, 69' "291" square port heads, etc. I have a set of 4.56 gears on the shelf, might as well go all out.

Now yer talkin! I am a fan of the 427 from way back. I don't know about the 4:56 gear though. I ran that ratio in the Nomad for a couple of years. The first 1/4 mile driving was fun, but that got old quick. I ended up with a complete Moser with 4:10 ratio.

I'll deal with the gears, I have a late model truck with overdrive and cruise control when I want to go long distance. I want the experience of solid lifters and steep gears.

Been really busy trying to get my 72 ready for paint. Right now plans are to do rust repairs this fall. But, we'll see...
