the plan is to go as much stock as possible.those in the know if you see something is not right let me know.i need a intake manifold# 701- 25hp. this is a Hoffman car. the second owner is alive and i made his day when i called him out of the blue. he bought the car used in 55 for $750.00 i have the invoice plus four binders of bills.the last item he bought was a battery at sears in 67. i used all this to track him down. i am hoping to get old pics from him .i see the pics can only be seen if logged in. why is that dev?
