Look at those tires-that car hasn't been driven much since the 80s. The hardtop probably hasn't been on that car in 20 years. Most people haven't used the hardtops since these things were daily...

'66/'67 GTO's are tricky to fit a rear tire. Those voluptuous quarter panels make you think there's a lot of space, but as was stated earlier, they won't even take what fits on a Chevelle. When we...

Its not necessarily a 618 block. This 0318DZ stamped block is a 3932388 casting. Oddball block but my research found they were used primarily in this midyear timeframe.
