Dino and V-Bob,
Newtown and/or Newington. My friend Mike said Newtown, but maybe he misunderstood
the telecast, or maybe he didn't. Anyway, the car was found in Connecticut, and that's a good thing, right? Can't believe no one else remembers that car at Dover. Is everybody from
68' thru 70' still under a chemical enhancer
Gary (Storm King). Right about throwing stuff away. When my father sold his shop in 98',
he couldn't give anything away. All the small block Mopar 340 stuff, even the Big Block 440 stuff, damn even the small block Chevy stuff (all the Fuelie Heads), pink rods, and factory aluminum dual-plane intakes, nobody wanted to pay any decent amount of $ for that stuff.
All's anybody wanted, was his cache' of CHEVY BIG-BLOCKS. Steel cranks, 4-bolt main blocks,
L-89 aluminum heads, and open-chamber SPEC. PERFORMANCE heads.
Have to penalize you one viscous-drive fan-clutch. I think Joe Kenney had "Trick Tank"
for 68' and the entire 69' season, (and maybe a touch or two in 70') before making the
Camaro switch over. Those damn 69' Camaro's, had about a half-dozen different engines to choose from in 69' (302/290...350/255....350/295.....350/350....327/275.....327/210), and thats only the small-blocks, GEEZ.
In 1969, over at Mopar, we had a 340/275...383/335.....440/375.... and a street HEMI.
Thats for the whole damn division.
Paul (If I'm wrong about "Trick Tank", I've got a 1964 factory Race Hemi NASCAR-type oil pan,
worth about $$$$$$$ for you).
