Good looking V200 you have there Brion. The 8 3/4 rear and 318 really make it a NICE Ride. Welcome to the Forum!

Any pictures of your Engine bay you want to share with us?

Thank you for the compliment.
Your 65 sure looks like a choice baubel.

I don't have good eng. pics yet. It has commando valve covers, headers by clifford(laysons) and custom?! air cleaner. I will try to get some pics to add.

Is your car a 273 with the dual point dist? 10:1 compression,or have you done various tricks in upgrades?

Cliff- That engine bay looks factory perfect.
When I send eng. pics, it will be readily apparent that some things are suspiciously "unoriginal". I am going to attempt to have pics by next week.
Thanks for good word fastfish662 more pics.

Thanks for saying so. The top is actually light blue, it matches the inside upper door sill and interior scheme...
Both colors are original match type except the finish is totally different.

Hey Clif! I just noticed you don't have any heater hoses. Does it not get cold at night in AZ or is your car a heater delete and I just forgot that?

Hey Roger (Hail to Da-Prez)

The "6" under the "E" makes it a Heater Delete. Many such cars were common to Arizona's Valley of the SUN in the 60's as it saved a whopping $71.00 bucks off the sticker price. With that savings you could then apply it towards important stuff like a Racing Stripe $31.25 and Sure Grip Differential-Sure Grip $38.35 and drive away in style with $1.40 change in your pocket.

Who cares if it gets a little cold at night... A good Woman can fix that!

I have never seen an early "A" body w/ htr delete. Only in "B" body ,(mostly factory super stock)cars. In fact, I did not even notice at first because I was struck by the clean install of your motor. There appears to be no windshield washing system, although I see the mount area for the tank. Optional as well?

Brion,
Looking good... And looks like it has some HP to make that Valiant really move in style. Keep working on it, you are on the right track.

Fstfish66... Heater delete parts have really been picked over the last 10 years or so. Every time I see one now the "parts" are lone gone.

How finicky is that set up for the 6 pack? I've heard that the outboard carbs have a tendency to flood and the progressive linkage acts weird.
I've been looking to get that set up for my cuda and possibly convert that into fuel injection.
66 Barracuda with vinyl top all stock except for wheels. for now...

to be added at a later date:
bigger, wider wheels
sixpack
