I'm considering a 1965 Fastback T code 3 speed manual car that was converted to a 289 V-8. What are the major differences between the 6 cylinder and V-8 cars? What items should I be looking for or should I pass and keep looking for a V-8 Manual? Thanks. Dan
The body shells were identical, regardless of the original engine. The differences were bolt-on. The only drilling you might do would be to add dual exhaust, and this would be true even on an original V8 single exhaust car.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.
