Don't know if this belongs here or not, but didn't see much sense in starting a new thread for one video.

The install took about 1 hour but I condensed it down to a 1:29.

Enjoy

Is it my imagination or is that boom arm bending down an inch?

Seen at the local Ford Dealer. They went through the transmission and had the intake off. I believe they also went through the carburetor.

I'm guessing that car got the most attention in the service area.  Chug a Lug

The service manager at this dealership is a real car guy. I've known him for many years. He does all the work personally on the classics. I've seen 69 R model Mach's there, Shelbys, Camero's , Vette's. He recently retired, so I don't think the dealership is getting that business any more. He used to drag race a 69 R model Mach for another dealership for many years. He's a great guy and I wish he wouldn't have retired.

2766
Originally purchased by a fellow Calgarian in 68. He passed in 74 and the car was kept in the garage by his wife until 84. She finally decided to sell it at that point and this is a shot from the mid 80's after it was resurrected. Through to today still sports its original: drive train, interior and top . Never tinged, and all body panels and fiberglass original.
