    No ... these really need the 70 or 75 on it . Even a 15" 60 can be a bit narrow

    What is that tick-tick sound on acceleration? My Newport does the same thing especially up steep hills. I just assumed my timing needed adjustment but I would appreciate if someone would tell me if I'm wrong.

    Definitely but not mine a friend from the frozen north. Pics about a year or so old I'll have to get an update. Chads video reminded of it. Thought you guys would get a kick out of his one of none.

    Easy to understand issue. The car has an exhaust leak at the manifold gasket. What sounds like ticking is actually just the exhaust gas escaping from the cylinder where the leak is. Just replace your exhaust manifold gaskets, or possibly the donut gasket between the manifold and the downpipe and it’ll go away. Also you’ll have some restored performance. Exhaust leaks close to the engine like that cause a loss in backpressure and a slight power loss will occur. I’m changing mine tomorrow and will post a new video afterward.
    Good luck!

    That's a buddy of mine I got the interior for my 69 from. That video chad posted reminded me of his phantom convertible and I figured you'd all get a kick out of it. I'll see if he has it painted by now. Been a while.

    I really like the convertibles. I found a couple c bodies, Lincoln’s, and a galaxie 500 Verts here locally on CL for cheap.

    Sorry to be the olger here but those wheels/tires aren't working. Your right, it's not a hot rod, it's an elegant car. Mopar road wheels with 235 75 15 Cooper white walls will make that car jump.

    Yep. Road wheels would’ve been my first choice. A 16” with 245/70/16 would’ve been perfect for my car. I am going to a few Mopar shows this weekend, and I have advertised the current Torqflites for either sale or trade. Love the way your car looks.

    Yep, 16" Road Wheels would have been great. Looking for the rare 17" ones myself.
    Good luck with the Torqflites.

    Super confused. I’m guessing with Polara71 being here they don’t make a 16”, it jumps from 15 to 17. Shit, now I’ll have to go look.....

    Better yet, remove the manifold gaskets and don't replace them.

    The factory never used gaskets between the manifold and the head and you shouldn't either.

    Was this on the small blocks as well? My understanding was only the big blocks had no gaskets from the factory. I would love to know for certain.
