Jerry, my recollection was 2550 race ready (I know we were 200 overweight) with the all alum 632, single 4 bbl, steel can, crower clutch, Lenco, and it had 17X34.5 tires. That weight also includes Lance with about the same ammount of OEM steel as your car has. I remember more pipe in the front tho.

I don't know. Andy might have an idea about sticking one of those fiberglass reproduction dash covers in it. We'll just have to see how easy it is when we get that far.

I dont doubt it, those guys are doing sweet things with the Mod motors. You wont meet any more dedicated Blue Oval racers than Marvin and Joey. Marvin loves the Old school stuff too. Really good people, cant say enough good bout them.
