    Unhappy Last pictures of the 425....

    Well, when I installed the modified '68 472 intake manifold, rebuilt carb and carb spacer... I got crappy cell phone camera pics...

    So likewise, when I removed that, to take with me before my final part with this car, I had my camera and got pics.

    93,350 miles, all origanal, all origanal mechanics.

    She is sludgy, but it was cleaning up with my good oil and semi-frequent changes.... I remember I made a thread about it being sludgy.... well, you get to see it now.... she ran even after the accident... vaccum lines were pulled so it was a little rough... but she ran.

    Big wire cutters become your best friend.... wires, rubber hoses, belts, throttle cables, even steel fuel line I just cut right thru..... man I miss this car.

    Here she is... it looked "good" though not all that clean.... I guess average for a 27 year old dialy driver. NY-FL, 1,400 miles in 36 hours.... never missed a single beat.

    I never drove 1400 miles at a time but mine also has the 425 and I know it'll run wide open all night long
    I have a 15000 mile set of michelin looking as if they had 60000 on them
