Funny you ask! It was....The ole 65 is back in the ' work' garage. As you can tell…. I def don’t drive this car enough. Between the fishbowl windows and modded engine, its just not my ‘go to’ car like it used to be. So out with the ‘old’….. and in w the ‘new’. The plan will be a yank the existing drivetrain and all accessories. I have a 1641 single port that will takes its place as I refresh the car’s fluids and get her into rotation or onto a new owner.

I'd be lying if i said the though never crossed my mind. The long term plan will be to have that motor in an oval but time will tell.
