I purchased two of these from a collector for parts for my 70. This gem hasnt been plated since 1986. and it shows…. After I power washed 8 inches of racoon poop off the motor, I rebuilt the carb, changed starter, changed points and oil, changed the coil and got it fired up. At first what I thought was a rod knock was a power steering pump running dry. The bottom end of the motor sounds tight. It ran reasonably well until one to many smoky burnouts blew a head gaskets. The motor still runs and drives but will need to be freshed up. The Turbo 400 trans works good. THis is a 375 hp 472 , 10-1 compression. The brakes sort of work and the car drivers reasonably well.
