Fuel line

the fuel line is 3/8" with no return line. I have had the car a few years still
searching for the broadcast sheet. this car has some strange options no
exterior trim and yet bumper guards I wish had the original big block!!

Guess ya can't have EVERYTHING!!! That is a seriously cool ride tho, great color and love the interior. That radio and the speakers are neat too...

Definitely need to put the SS 5 spoke wheels on that puppy or maybe some dog dishers...

great car man, cant wait to see what you do with it.

Thanks!!

It will be my sons car he will be turning years 9 old at the end of Dec. he is already a big nova freak!! I do like the dog dish caps I have them on my
63 hardtop. luckily they are easier to locate than first gen caps and less $$
it is a pretty solid car some rust in both quarters mint floors and trunk.
not sure if he will be ready for a big block we will have to wait and see

That's really cool. My cars are going to my kids also...but I told them they HAVE to have a garage to keep them in...I figure that will buy me some time. My oldest is 20 and a broke college student, so it will be awhile.
