Woohoo

Thanks TJ, I'm still not prepared to "stump the members", so I'll do another easy one.

Yep, correct engine. To the best of my knowledge, 1970 429 Cobra Jet only, it used a 720cfm Rochester Quadrajet, the 1970 429 Super Cobra Jet used a 780cfm Holley. Okay Duntov, the floor is yours. Here's a couple of consolation prizes I think you will appreciate. Nolan
