    looks great.
    a good time to paint your master cylinder.
    that 347 looks tough, neck-snapper over that 2V!

    Haha good eyes! Originally the truck was in Colorado so the block heater was probably needed there. I didn't put it back on for here in TX :)

    Always want to know the full build.
    Didn't recognize the World heads, they looked a bit like the Dart Pro, but not quite.
