Yeah Billy ... a guy that has been my friend for probably 45 years. He's a great mechanic. He has a 1930 Chevy coupe ... all original.

Get her running then come on down and take me for a ride.

I use to have a 1941 Pontiac Businessmans coup but had to let it go when I was in the AF. It had a flathead straight 8.

I was close to dropping in an old 327, but I figure she lasted almost 80 years ... I just can't cut her up. It won't be totally original but as close as I can make it.

I agree. But I would have tried for a 250. Love the old L6 engines.

Tommy I figure that if I went with a 327 that the old drum brakes would not stop her ... she is pretty heavy. I didn't want to sink too much money yet.

Yeah Billy .... it sure did make my day ... till we found a coolant leak. Rolling Eyes I think Mike found it so we are back on track to get her home this weekend.

thanks AP ... Embarassed

Need opinions .. I could run the split manifold and through a straight through glass pack ... or put a muffler that will not be as loud. I am leaning to the "not so loud" side ... I don't think the car looks like it should be too loud. What do you guys think????

Go with the muffler. Glass packs just don't seem right on that car. You can always change them later.
