    Re: so i was cleaning out my granpas warehouse and found a car

    You'll probably find a speck of dirt under the float needle. Also if the carb has a plastic float, they tended to soak up fuel and become too heavy. Hard to spot during a rebuild. Just my opinion but the brakes should be looked at prior to the exhaust upgrade. Not for wear but seepage in the hydraulics. Peel back a rubber cup on each wheel cylinder. It should be dry. If wet, it needs replacement. Pull the master cyl. away from the booster, leaving the lines attached, and look for fluid seepage on the pushrod.

    That interior is a rare one, called "Maji" which was a Matelasse, a subdued fabric with a very substantial feel to it.The bolsters are leather.
