  1. Hello FNG!  Welcome to the fold!  Nice and slick ride you have there!  Post some pics of the engine and interior.  I am very envious that you have a stick.  All Hot Rods should have a stick shift.  I am stuck with a C6 auto.  I have looked into converting to a 4-speed toploader but it appears to be cost prohibitive.  I'll just live with what I have.  Anyway nice ride!!!

     

  2. its a 72 but I kinda wish it was s 71 with a hotter engine.  It came with the neutered 351C 2V engine.  Mine was also Wimbledon white but painted black during its restoration in the early 2000s.  Will be getting a rebuild with better heads and a hotter cam.  You must keep all of us posted with progress pics.  

  3. Welcome to the fold!  Post more pics!  The best thing to do is dual out your exhaust system, add headers and low restrictive mufflers.  That'll cost you about $1.5K if you go to a reputable exhaust shop.  Do your research and speak with reputable mechanics to make an informed decision.  That will help and you can upgrade your intake manifold and carb to 4 barrel and that would add another 1.5K or so.  without increasing airflow into the engine, upgrading your exhaust will only help so much.

    What did the mounts you took out look like (std or clam shell/captive mounts). There are different perches and mounts for 73 than there is for 71-72. The 73 mounts are not being reproduced so I ended up switching my perches over to the 71-72 perches and using the available 71-72 mounts and everything fit perfect. Also I am running headman headers with power steering with no issues. I do not recommend shims on engine mounts. 

    Mine were the clamshell type.  The edges of the clamshell is what was causing clearance issues with the headers.  In lieu of shims, what do you recommend?
