Long discontinued, so it's Ebay or similar.

Nice looking car, certainly will be a handful with a stick, our mild 10:1cr 695hp '69RR 727 street/strip car (originally a stick) has the 11" drums with manual brakes/steering and is all steel apart from a 6-pk hood, owner says if you keep the drums adjusted well they work ok but boy they are seriously heavy, car weighs 3800@the line, 10.3's@129 with full exhausts to date, drive to station fill up with V-power in the morning up to the track, race and drive home the old school way.

I am sorry that you are having to go through recovery.

Treatments that you can buy without a prescription are

PepcidAC (generic name Famotidine) 4 tablets taken three times a day. Take some Miralax along with Famotidine because there can be constipation.

Melatonin two 3 mg doses per day.

You could ask your MD to prescribe
Luvox (generic name Fluvoxamine)
which has been found in a clinical trial to help Covid-19 patients who are recovering at home.

sample quote

Researchers compared the outcomes of those treated with fluvoxamine to the outcomes of those given an inactive placebo.
After 15 days, none of the 80 patients who had received the drug experienced serious clinical deterioration.
Meanwhile, six of the 72 patients given placebo (8.3%) became seriously ill, with four requiring hospitalization.

end quote

It might be helpful to have someone buy for you a cheap fingertip oximeter

so you could check to make sure the oxygen level in your blood is not dropping too low.
If it drops low go to the ER.

What is there to think about?

Like I said, I'd rather keep it all Ma Mopar and the other thing to consider is that I'm hoping I don't have to mod the tunnel was the other thing. The tranny will be behind a 400 stroked to 470. Have you done this DaveRS?

Most, if not all, 1942 cars are unique. What they did when they resumed in 1946 was a rehash but with tweaks that continued to be carried over through 1947-48. I generally find the 1942 models more attractive than the post-war ones.

They also had "blackout" models due to rationing, so you'll find painted trim.

How old was your friend when he bought that car? whistling drumhit boogie

At that time in his mid 40's IIRC, he's actually a Mopar guy and has been most of his life but he's also a flipper.
If he thinks he can make a buck on a car he'll buy it.

He's got a collection of Mopars, probably the coolest is a rear 70 Hemi Charger SE 4 speed car (F8 Green).

He owned and restored the Q5 69 Hemi Coronet R/T convertible 4 speed car a few years back, it's been traded away.
[Linked Image]
It was at MCACN a few year back when he owned it.
[Linked Image]

He's building a 71 Hemicuda convertible (clone) right now. Hemi Orange, 4 speed.
Like most of the cars he builds the only thing that won't have the right numbers on it would be the VIN, it's being built with all date coded correct parts.
Seems silly to me since it's a clone, but he likes them that way.

He's always buying and selling cars.

But---there is also a pad on the block under the starter that is supposed to have id numbers including the julian calender date--the pad is blank except for the letter A. That is why I am wondering if it was a replacement block?

1968 is the last year for the "PT" numbers on a 383 on the lower starter rail ("A" is probably just an assembly mark)

9,800 miles last I checked on my '07 stock Hemi

By the looks of your mileage the truck should last a couple more centuries.

So glad I bought a Dodge. up

There is no cap on the overflow.

There is only a radiator cap on the reservoir.

The small black hose in the pic is the overflow hose.

The two nipples at the back of the coolant tank are both on the pressurized side of the coolant tank.
There should be NO LEAKS there.

If there are, there's a problem, either a cracked coolant tank or a cracked or not seated hose.

The one hose that comes out the back of the coolant tank goes back to a t-fitting in the heater hoses.
The t-fitting is usually plastic and could be cracked.

Would love to own that thing.

Couple comments to the above posts.

I'd be surprised if the final bid was only in the mid-20's, I could see it going much higher.

I thought max wedge heads had 4 bolt valve covers, these have 6. Am I wrong about the number of bolts?

One other thing I noticed, some of the info. says Eagle rods and Diamond pistons and some says Molnar rods and RaceTec pistons. Either combo would be adequate for that power level, just something I noticed.

Beautiful car.

Looking for a decent 1974 Roadrunner rear bumper. Driver quality that can be bolted on and used. Don't need a core. Please PM me if you have something.
Thanks, Dean.

For full disclosure, the CR in aviation engines is far less than for cars, for reliability purposes. I believe that made the early direct injection systems a bit easier to achieve.

Yeah, about 6.8 to 1 but they also could get 100 inches of manifold pressure with 130/145 octane gas and not blow a jug off every flight...that is a lot of boost.

8-32 x 3/32 brass set screw. They work and look great. Just drill to desired size with numbered drill bits.
