Re: R Code 428 CJ XR7 convertible

If the price is reasonable and you are able to tackle the job, BUY IT!!! Not often you come across a 428 convertible.

Re: Fact or Fiction?

I actually had that picture /article on my bedroom slider doors in the 90s, along with a 67 that was blue with a red and yellow stripes down the side along with ken wells 70 428cj red convertible. I`m going to see if I can find them books online or amazon or even barnes and nobile.

Re: Fan danger?

IIRC
Chuck here on our forum had 1 explode and part of the shrapnel missed his eye by like inches. I have mine put away and I went with a clutch fan. Way to scary to think that just 1 over rev could actually send a blade thru the bood .
