Chris, you did what is the hardest part for most of us and that's the rust repair and panel replacement your pics from along the way are a great testament to what is actually involved thanks for sharing them and I look forward to seeing you again at the FE reunion.

Re: 390 4V Air Cleaner and Oil Breather

Original 428 housing would be missing the baffle where the snorkel meets the housing there is a Shop Tips note about about this, trying to diagnose high speed performance issues on a 390 with this housing.

Re: ride height 67 GT

A lower ride height gives you a lower center of gravity a good set of tires never hurts either.

Re: Question on 1968 CJ Cougars

There wasn't an assembly date stamped just a letter "S" all other parts with a date of any sorts were before 2/14. The block was 1/26.

Royce, is it possible one of the two immediate engine installs from the 1/24/68 letter could have been the 2/14/68 blue promo Cougar ?
