Welcome to the Team Lane!

If you enjoy driving them; you would really enjoy a 502 short block tucked under your 325 horse heads and air cleaner.

With bigger valves in your cast iron heads you could easily pull down the 502 horsepower advertised for the ZZ502 motor as they actually crank out 523 to 531 horse depending on temp and humidity in the dyno room. When these cars where new a 500 horsepower motor would get you on the cover of any of Mr. Petersen's old car rags like Hot Rod or Car Craft, as 500 horse was just about unheard of on the street.

Very nice,
I like your '68 and love the '67.
It looks like it might be a Janesville built '67. How did that make it's way down to TN? I could be wrong but check your cowl tag and let me know if it is indeed a Janesville built car.

Tell us more about it.

Thanks,
It and a parts car made their way to TN via a 24hr road trip Sat. and Sun. here is a pic of the cowl tag and the pp.
Anything special about a Janesville built car?
Thanks again

Nice, Gold with Black top

Cowl codes confirm A/C, 4 Speed, and Rear seat sepaker

Nothing special about Janesville cars but you can spot an original firewall a mile away due to the paint technique around the cowl tag.

Take a look at my pictures for details.
