BBC Santa Claus came early this year

Got this tri power, carbs need rebuild and intake needs hose connections and fuel lines, but i think it will be great once finished.

My -67 Camaro body is going to body shop to get new quarters and roof skin installed so it`s a long way to go before it is in a drivable condition.
It`s going to be a street car.

Always have loved the tri power and never have had a car with it. Very cool looking and working with progressive linkage.
