Thanks all. He found the title, it is a ‘48! Not buying, he is selling.
Uhh...pictures are of the same car.
Thanks! This is the only dash picture I took Guessing I need a passenger side view.
Getting ready to post this VA [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] field car for a friend. Is it a forty?
Sounds like your still in limbo until he prices the car.
Thanks Tim! I’ll be in the lawn chair out front. Gonna order a new cable.
Can you swing by on the next donut run? Is that a vintage Edelbrock cable or a new one? Why is it better? I have a frozen one now.

Looking to use an ultrasonic cleaner to clean older four barrels; Holley 650, Quadrajet, Rochester. Is a 6L cleaner large enough? Anybody using...
Congratulations on Number 2!

Just saw what looks to be Dan Glover’s ‘57 on FB tri-five cars and parts for sale! In Illinois. Can’t post pics or link. Bueller, anyone?
Can you explain “slick shited” and “faceplated”.
Thanks all. The designation “GF” fits and I see it clearer[ATTACH] in this second photo. Was the 195 vs 220 just the 4bbl or more to it than that?...
No sure how the code on the front is read. “F” I assume is for Flint, the rest not sure of. Pulling the valve covers is a good suggestion.
Decoded this as a ‘65 283. When it comes to the codes I get a 195 hp rhd manual or a 220 hp depending on source. Some help with the code and maybe...
