I can dig it.. inline with trip's

with the inlines fuel distrabution issues(center carb/long runners to end cyl.)
could use use non-progressive linkage, and jet the carbs down. to get a more uniform fuel mix.. at idle and off idle cruise..
either way it'll be cool.. nice to see an inline 6 instead of the v8 every time

Nothing particularly wrong w/the 194 other than displacement. Makes me want to say do a 250, but by the time we're done here, the way these threads tend to start creeping up and up and more and more, it'll have a 292 w/a turbo! Or worse, a SBC.

Prob. right, Vinnie. They do look cool IMHO when done up like they were back when, w/the ribbed side and valve covers, a split exhaust manifold, even an Eelco filter to top it off.

It may do ok someday. I purchased the car because it is as it was in 62. It has been alot of fun and I drove it today. No plates but I just had to do it. It is not fast but what a ride. It is not always about speed but about preserving some of these original Hot Rods.

enjoy the car,tey are horrible to drive,Ive owned 4 of them. 65/63/67/67,inthat order the 63 and 1, 67 were powered by 6s,the other 2 were 283s.
I later updated the 65 with a 327 and the 67 ss I sold for a decent profit. I bought it for 1200 and sold it for 2k after less than 1 month

I had a '66 327/4-speed, a '68 w/327/TH350 and a new '73/307 (don't ask). But all of mine drove fine.
