Very glad you stayed in contact with them & was able to get this, Limey!

Goes to show that just because a car is dusty does not mean it was never cared for properly.

Well I knew I couldn't leave the Two Barrel on for Long LOL Anyways the Carb developed a Leak so it has to come off to get rebuilt so NO Better time to Go to 4 Barrel I guess, Add the Longtubes, 2.5" pipes with flows, front / rear Shock, Rear Sway bar from Impala SS, Finish bolting up the gforce trans member And then at Least it would Sound Better, Painted the Manifold and repainted the Valve covers to match the Shade of Blue.
