The 318, perched in his nest   A little rusty, but gets the job done.  Will be painting intake and valve covers original blue when I get the time and money.






you call that rusty?  :p

I've fixed all of the electrical issues, had the trans rebuilt and been driving it since 2013.  Original Carter 2 barrel 318 still going strong     Also, gotta love the way they look covered in snow :p

Very nice car, and keeping it original is the way to go.  Do you get interesting comments on it from folks?

Diplomat is still going strong.  Had to replace a rear cylinder head plug last year which was fun, got to spend vacation in the driveway but well worth it.  Cleaned out the EGR ports and gunk in the lifter valley as well as the intake.  Rockers were in good condition so I cleaned them up nice and painted everything.  Take care of them and they will return the favor  :biggrin:
