  1. Just did the Anco conversion on my 70 454 Chevelle. Works unbelievably well and you don't get that plastic breaking click like the original.

    Which One and Why

    1971 SS454. When I was a young warthog, a guy who owned an arcade had three cars. A 71 Ss454, a 72 W Custom, and a Sinatra Stubby. My bud bought the 71, another got the Custom, and the old guy kept the Mini Caddy. I actually built a clone of the 71. Five years ago, the actual 71 showed up for sale in Georgia. Sold the clone and I have that car. The 72, with its multitude of greenness was parted out after a crash in 2005. I got the engine and the power windows.

    Front A Arms for street/strip

    One of my old employees works in the plant that builds them. https://checkeredracing.shopsettings.com/64-72-GM-A-Body-Tubular-Control-Arms-p116157587

    Still Around

    Kinda funny. I just took off the 4 inch sewer pipes and the Centerlines for an American Thunder exhaust and stock rallyes. The poor car sat for a couple of years and now it is time to get it cleaned up, go through the engine, and figure out why the blower isn't working.

    Not Monte Related

    Rob, every time I get one of those manifolds in, I ask the customer if they have had recent headaches. The carbon monoxide gets picked up by the air conditioner. Very common problem on the 2.4s on any GM platform.

    Still Around

    And still have her. My 71 496 car. About to go back under the knife after getting the snot beat out of her for the last ten years. Not my fastest car, not my nicest car, but my favorite car.

    Jared, check out Checkered Racing. Just bought a set for my 70 Chevelle. Bolt ins for $400. Nice stuff, built in Tenessee

    Nice SS going to auction

    Mike, not much difference than my 71, except that one is nice. At BJ I think it would pull high twenties. Sothebys? Any guess is a good guess.
  9. I have the American Thunder Flowmaster on both my 71 Monte and my 70 Chevelle. Fit is good and fairly easy to install.

    Electrical Nightmare

    I get alternators my parts guy calls the swamp buggy units. One wire and done, as long as you wire the big fatty on the post on the rear of the unit directly to the battery. Never been a fan of amp gauges. Even my restored 70 SS454 Chevelle is not wired for the factory amp gauge.

    Suspension mods for 600hp

    My 71 496 car is a very simple setup to get 1.50 60 foot in a full bodied, ac, lots of stereo car. BMR upper and lowers, Moog cargo coils, and Viking adjustable shocks. Uppers are adjustable and I run 5 degrees of pinion angle.

    T-shirt on Ebay PSA

    Because 71 is the coolest anyway.
  13. I have a customer with a 67 Eldorado. It is identical.

    wiring problems

    Def goes to neutral safety switch. On a column shift car it goes to the switch on the base of the column and plugs in to the left of the reverse light connector. On a floor shift auto it hooks to the same switch, but it moves to the shifter, and you need an extension harness to connect it.

    ac belt not lining up

    Are you doing the small power steering belt and the ac belt? I thought the ac belt on my 71 was off so I made a fixture out of 1/2 inch aluminum L braket around 45 inches lock that follows the bend between the ac comp, power steering pump, and crank. What looked like 3/4 inch was actually 1/16". I just tightened the short belt at the pump and no more squeak.
