  1. I always figured my 71 J Code Vert to be in the 3800lb range ( not including gas...). The Vert frame set up, all inclusive, adds 200 lbs +\- and the big block 100-150 lbs. I will have to get it weighed one day...
  2. One of the worst additions to the hardtop body style IMO.
  3. Picked up this 86 300Z as something different to play with when I need a break from the stang’s... I wanted the earlier 70’s version, but are few and far between today. Most have been altered severely and I like my car’s original... Lots of projects for the winter now...
  4. TommyK, I am aware of the various group’s online and have conversed on the matter. I have spent quite amount of time learning about them. I had my first J Code back in 1992. The only problem I had with it was the leaking well’s. Everyone has an opinion on my carb. Concensus is very hard to come by concerning how to fix these carb’s. The biggest obstacle is the fact that Ford decided to take a GM Carb (at the last minute) and modify to satisfy emissions back in the day. They were never a good fit on these engines IMO. We will see how it play’s out. Thanks
  5. Finally decided to send my original factory Rochester Q-Jet Carburetor to a reputable rebuild company to have them dissemble and confirm first, that it is what it is suppose to be inside and secondly determine and correct any issues... As most here have no use for a Q-Jet Carb on our car’s, this post will not be much help, but, for those of us having to deal with these carb’s on our original car’s; it makes a difference. Spent three year’s trying to sort this thing out after spending $1500 for it in 2016. Was rebuilt to show quality by a company in New Jersey, date and number
  6. I searched a long time for my dealer emblem. I had to do some restoration work on it before installing on the car. As with everything on these car’s, when it comes to rare or obscure parts; patience and perseverance are the key. If you see it, jump on it!
  7. To clarify again... the eBay $27500 car price is not to be mistaken as the selling price for all future 71 J Code car’s... That sale was a blip, it happens. Their was uncertainty with the overall condition of the car, because, I had my finger on the button to buy it as the auction was coming to a close. I decided against it because I just was not convinced at the time. These cars in very good restored or original condition will bring appropriate top $$, just like the B1’s. My opinion... Yes... it will cost a bundle to restore a J or C Code to a high level. It’s worse for those
  8. I use battery chargers/trickle Chargers all the time. Three of them...
  9. A quick look at 5 pictures and the write up and then I walked.... They can’t even get the 5th digit of the VIN correct.... The paint and exterior finishes are incorrect. Enough for me to say not for that coin....
  10. Guns and hockey sticks? Haha. Hockey is a man to man sport. Gun’s? well, an American past time I guess... I’ll “stick” to playing hockey, Thanks.
