    Yes the one we took engine and box from for the front engined dragster, it had been bare metaled and left outside with no glass for a good few years. It was full of rat **** and you could push your fingers through wings and bonnet. It was so bad even the engine and box needed a full rebuild, good job we had it for owed storage cost.

    Still doesn't sound worse, the bonnet on this one came off (allegedly) whilst it was being driven because of rotten hinges, (as well as most of the inner structure) and was driven over by the following car; oh and the engine was seized when I got it, but the good news is that the 440 is so big you can get a 4" fence post down the bores!
    Just a passer by as you might say.

    re the vacuum fitting on the impala inlet. there's usually a large vacuum fitting on the base plate of the carb, on most 4 barrel's anyway. connect the servo pipe to that.
    neil.

    Unfortunately this is still running the original 2 barrel and the only fitting is for the adv/rtd; I did buy another manifold to fit a 4 barrel, but again because it's an early engine the oil filler goes through the manifold, and whilst you could have valve cover with holes in, these are the staggered bolt type, and I bought a nice pair of finned valve covers with no holes!

    I would imagine the correct manifold will turn up at some point, whether I'm still alive by then, who knows!

    That's a good idea; I'll get the committee to commission a feasibility study!
