I have a 63 Classic with 4.6L (stroked 4.0L) EFI six. That 62 will be a bit of a sleeper! The 327 isn't known for good gas mileage, but has lots of low speed torque and the 62 is relatively light. One hint -- the factory Holley is only a 450-500 cfm carb. Helps on low end, but the engine will enjoy a 600 cfm better. A good low restriction exhaust will also help, 2.25" w/turbo mufflers is a good combo, but from what I see and hear on your MySpace page you might like a pair of Smitty's glass packs better, would definiitely give it a "vintage" sound! Ultimately you may want to get a better cam, as the AMC cam is very conservative. You can't just buy one, you'll need to pull yours and send it to one of the cam companies or find a good used one (287 or 327 -- both use the same cam). They can re-grind it and give you a nice boost in power. Let them know what you want out of the car and they can recommend a grind. I've had that done before. You can also mount a later model AMC aluminum intake on it. The intake requires 1/2" spacer plates on each side, but they are flat plates. The thickness allows room for some port blending as the ports are slightly different shapes. The V angles are the same for both engines, so the plates are flat. The later model has a shorter deck height, making the late intake narrower. You have to cut the water crossover from the front of the late intake, also the rear portion -- everything in front of and behind the actual intake runners. Most people use a Torker, but they mainly use it for racing. You're better off with an Air Gap or Performer for a street car.

Good luck with it!
