    Engine Bay Sticker Placement

    i am a little late to this party. but it is a no-brainer that the red air conditioning decal wont be used. as i do not see a/c on your car. i would toss out the ignition coil and voltage regulator decals also. since neither one had a decal. they were painted on. need to take those to a place...

    Divorce sale

    i am searching for an Autolite 4300 carburetor. MUST be stamped with D1OF-FA on the base. although these were often mis-stamped with the D missing. this stamp only appeared on the Autolite carb used on 1971 cars with 351c 4v and c6.
