73's are the best year, style wise. mine is like the laguna Vista w/o the 2 tone paint(its a restification not a original) . have you looked into rims yet? try 17's they look pretty good. years ago i almost traded my 73 for a newer 79 lesabre with a louvered hood. i had to turn the offer down. optioned out these are hardcore cruisers. swing out seats! can your hotrod do that? drop a big small block in. saya 400hp, 400" , and a sturdy 3.73 pinion set.

currently im looking into a GVendors unit to increase top speed and mpgs

is that that Colonade edition?

if you ask me 73 is the bang out year!

you may have a couple of bad valves there. you had better just replace the engine with a 400.
