Thanks for the compliment. I purchased this over Thanksgiving weekend last year so Iíve only had it four-ish months. It had not been registered since 2003 or on the road in almost 20 years!!!

I have had a blast restoring the interior and getting it drivable again. Havenít done anything to the exterior, but it is real straight.

Funny thing for this first outing, we had winds over 60 miles an hour her first evening out. I had not even opened up the awning yet, too many other critical things to do. About 8 oíclock in the evening that awning decided to open it self up with a huge gust of wind and created a big parachute.

I thought we were going to be like the house in the Pixar movie ďUpĒ. It felt like we were going to fly away. Thank God for zip ties !!!

Another sideways photo! 🤣

Find a used Quadrajet from early 70s or convert to a Holly.

Edelbrock 1411 750 CFM carb is working for me

For what it's worth, I chose an Edelbrock #1411 carb for Flatnose Frank. It required an adapter plate and some modifications to the throttle controls to work on the stock intake. It all fits fine under the engine cover.

Carb works well for me without any changes to jetting (yet). I have 1400 miles on the rig. Up and over 2000 ft climbs several times (from sea level).

In the future, I'll swap for a better intake manifold and do some port matching.

All the best.
