Sixer guys,what MPG are you guys getting? I'm thinking about a six for a daily driver.
Nice! We have some Bay Area folks here! I thought I was alone. I'm in Milpitas. I currently have a 250/6 on a TH350. Not sure of the mileage as I got started on the restoration on my second day of owning it. I considered keeping it, but I may be swapping out to a small block 350 very soon. Are you interested in a 250/6? It's in good running condition. I can take a photo if you'd like, or you can feel free to stop by to take a look at it.Slow63, you and I will have to hang out some, being I am in San Leandro too.
I will be going to the little bit o trouble of upgrading to a 250 inline six and a th350 trans. I should get the best of both worlds. The trans is a big upgrade on the powerglide and should equate to more mpg. The 250 is a big upgrade to TORQUE so I won'ty have to stick my foot in it soooo hard to get somewhere.
I expect to get some good smiles to the gallon. I don't expect to scare anyone at the drag strip. BUT I also don't think it will be a dawg either.
