    Love the vent shades! Takes me back. Did the parts car have a gas door?

    Looking good! I really hope you re-do the woodgrain. One of the things that really stands out on the 72/ 73s.

    Thanks, yeah I was very happy to see those vent shades, I think they look great too...and yes I swapped on this fuel filler door from the parts wagon! Edit...maybe I didn't swap them...closer inspection appears to show they are two different doors (I don't have access to my parts wagon to verify). I've swapped so many parts I get things mixed up, maybe the original door was loose in the back when I bought it ha!

    Here's a few pics of the coolant overflow bottle that was in the back of the wagon with the other loose parts. Wasn't able to find a part # on it, and I have no idea what a stock one looks like or where it's mounted. The only place I figured it might go is where these 2 holes are drilled in the radiator support. If you look closely, there seems to be factory paint on the holes, they don't appear to be drilled after the car left the factory? Anyone with any knowledge please chime in. 20211113_135902.jpg 20211113_135825.jpg 20211113_135812.jpg 20211113_144600.jpg

    The 440 looks fantastic. Would be great to hear a video of it running!

    Thanks Scott, I'm in the process of getting something posted to YouTube...
    Got a few more things installed, a new master cylinder and starter. 20211120_151033.jpg 20211120_151047.jpg 20211120_151053.jpg 20211120_151101.jpg 20211120_153325.jpg 20211120_160335.jpg 20211120_160416.jpg

    Sounds great, Paul. Is it hard to find the kick down and correct linkages for a 440 4bbl? I am so glad you went to VA and got that car!!!

    Thanks Scott, I just used the linkages from the other green parts wagon since it was also a big block.

    Yes it was a new bare master cylinder so I protected it with some copper colored spray paint, I like it too!
