I have been away from VMF for several years. But I am now living back in Florida, with decent amount of workspace and want to get started back working on my '67 vert. (owned since the early 90s).
Car has not been driven for a while, but has been trailered from FL-to-NY-to-FL-to-IL... and back to FL, within about 10 miles from where I originally bought it..
Car is originally an early '67 C code 3-speed, CA-Red, with a black top and red int.. Now it has a '68 302 4v with a close ratio toploader and 8" 3.80 gears +Trac-Loc..
As I get this car running again.. I am focusing on three major areas..
1) disk brake conversion. Already have most of the parts.. Steve's 13" cobra for the front and ultrastang 11" svo brakes for the back. using Bullit 17" wheels
2) Need to decide a better carb/induction that the edelbrock that's on there now. Tempted by the new Fitech 400hp sytem, but will probably just buy a Holley 650dp, as I have really been trying to make the engine sort of a K-code clone. Solid cam etc.
3) Exhaust. (what I would really like some input on.) Just have the original manifolds and single exhaust right now.
HiPo manifolds, or maybe Try-Y. And want a bolt-in dual exhaust system that will fit through the convertible floor supports nicely. I have the stock Z-bar in right now. I want a healthy sound, but its a vert and don't want it to be too overpowering.
Anyone have any first hand advice for a nice exhaust setup on a '67 vert smallblock?
..Or input on any other aspects of my project.
