Running a solid workhorse '72 360ci small block w/ 904 torqueflight. Original 8-3/4 "742" rear axle. Rebuilt manual drum brakes on all four corners. Newer Holley Performance 650cfm carburetor with a manual choke. Car has new QA1 upper control arms, Delrin bushings, and new ball joints. The front shocks are new- QA1 arms. Has all new belts and hoses. New fuel pump and gas tank. The car starts right up, drives well and stops ewell- the tranny sometimes takes a little longer to shift and every now and then it does an odd shift- but it works. I do not race this car and I drive it responsibly - I find if the trans doesn’t shift where I feel it should, you come off the gas and it pops into the next gear smoothly. Could use some Lucas.
Some of the gauges need to be plugged in - the speedometer & new mechanical oil pressure gauge work. Has electrical safety circuit-breaker in place of the voltmeter in the dash. New headlight vacuum switch, light-doors open & close properly & head and tail-lights work. The final step would be to finish the wiring. The car has a new battery, the charging system is working. The 360 has the ‘72 elec ignition w/ the ballast box and stock silver control module. Odometer doesn't keep mileage.
Nice interior: new seat covers, carpeting, headliner, good door panels & complete set of original pads & good emblems. The end-cap for console is there but unattached, good seats comes with complete set of seat-belts. Missing door lock-pull on passenger side. Dome light isn’t hooked up but new wires have been run to it. The grill has a little distortion in the center from heat but otherwise is good and solid. Missing the internal ductwork behind dash. Running glass pack mufflers that sound mean and low. No washer bottle and motor needs connecting up, but is fixable.
The paint job is very nice but not perfect, some sanding marks in places and has cracks & minor bubbling along lower rear quarter panels. I don’t know how much of the car was welded, patched or bondo- but assume that there is some here for the age. One small crack at top of passenger door as well. (see image). New front bumper and lower valance- otherwise all chrome is original.
THERE ARE NO PATCHES IN THE FLOOR. Car was undercoated originally and it protected much of the underbody. The trunk floor has some rust in the sides (6"x4" on RH side and 1" hole on LH side) and a slight bit of surface rust that I photographed, but otherwise it is original and a solid pan. Frame rails are solid and this car is better than many. Overall a nice clean ’68 that will be a good runner and fun vehicle. COMES WITH a set of “
