great post! I also owned one of those cars. Mine was a 62 special 2 door sedan with the 215 aluminum V/8.....had leaky head gaskets and it was in the army in Germany...no way to get my new gaskets then so I drove it with jerry cans of water in the trunk. I sold it to one of the cooks who said he was gonna drop a 401 in it. I came back to the states...never got to see what he did with it.
