Re: Muffler Selection

I had dual Porters put on my '56 about 10 years ago. Love the sound. Nice rumble at idle but they will bark a bit when accelerating. Inside the car it's just enough to hear 'em, not annoying at...

Re: original paint y blocks

I still have the heads that came off the engine, ECZ's were used on the rebuild. I'll have to look at those old ones & see what the #s are on them.

Re: original paint y blocks

Sal that engine above has the carb & intake you got from me a few years ago, not sure if the manifold was painted too. I got the block near Akron Ohio but don't know its origin.

Re: original paint y blocks

Closest color we could find to what was on the block when I got it. Can't remember what it is called.

Re: Air Cleaner ID help - ECZ-9600-A

Re: The forgotten 1960 Fords

Was it you that posted 'em? I didn't notice the name. Looks like all of them could be saved. My first car was a '60 Ford but not a hardtop.
