air flaps.

The first thing to check is the bellows-linkage that control the rear air circulation flaps. If those go bad the engine will overheat, burn pushrod seals and fog oil on the back.
I had a 61 Monza, More chrome on the interior, and 2 corvair powered dunebuggies, On The last buggy I machined the intake manifold surface on the heads, added 2 more carb flanges then made a spider leg manifold and ran a holly 2 barrel, It would pull the front wheels up in second gear.
