Yes, 1968 and 1969 too. I owned a 68 with the suicide doors and a 10.5:1 460. Great car.

If the intake in the ebay auction above doesn't work out, the Torker II or Track Heat intakes are what you need. Neither are Dominator, but you can run an adapter if you already have the carb, or...

Suspension is air bag on all four corners, so you'll need to rip out all that stuff and the computer. Not a big deal if you're doing an aftermarket K-member anyhow.

Must be the base circle. I've used them on several production blocks, and there just hasn't been any issue. Bigger cams that probably have smaller base circles though.
