The last carbied 429s
Here in Australia, we've got some fancy pants rules regarding engine changes in our cars.
In particular, the engine must atleast meet the emmissions standard of the year the car was made or the year the engine was made, whichever is the newest.
So if I put an engine from a 1970 car into my 1983 Falcon, I must make it meet the same standards of 1983. Or, if I put a 2006 engine in it, it must meet the standards of 2006.
OK, I also have a limit on the capacity of the engine as a ration to the weight of the car. So a 460 will be too big. a 429 will be sweet.
So I'm wondering if they made 429s with a carby up to 1983. I will modify the engine when I'm done, but in order to be approved by an engineer to have a big block in my ride, I need to start with a base engine.
Can anybody help me with some info, please?
