Lower valence i think will stay color matched... not a huge fan of the silver...

 

painted a hood hinge and a trunk hinge, both were buggered... Took like 5 trunk hinges and 3 hood hinges to get good ones...

Mopar1 - 2019-11-11 3:50 PM Should have got Title before doing any work on it.

 

just a formality, i have a clean matching title.  You take it out to any small bmv and they send the title in.  ive done it many times.  I have to have a out of state inspection, a little 70 year old little asian lady comes out and looks for the vin number and odometer...

You cant have a car in pieces though, it has to look like a car :)  I bought this car off a cop in missouri so i dont think it was stolen... I can call him up and tell him though

I went with the Edelbrock AVS2

Laying out the wiring harness.

I got a 59 Dodge hood and lower front bumper... My 59 dodge front end is complete.

I put one of those AVS2's on my 383 last year, very happy with it. It's now the best running, carbureted car I own

yeah i dont want to go with some ratty old carb... Seems the AVS2s are the real deal, i looked at the holley brawler also but this is low profile, came with a free air cleaner and 20$ off

Mike: Not sure what manifold you are using. After watching two videos on the AVS2, I am interested in a 500 cfm one for my 56 Dodge D500 315 hemi. Might be over kill but I am not happy with my rebuilt stock D500 Carter WCFB 2442S four barrel. The AVS2 sounds promising.

I still have the stock WCFB manifold so I think that I would at least need a spread bore type adapter. After that, I don't have clue.

Any thoughts?
