A lower temp T-stat will make NO DIFFERENCE in the stabilized operating temps of your engine. It will merely allow your engine to take longer to reach that temperature. Also, flex fans are DANGEROUS....

At that time, you couldn't get sharp body lines with stamped metal dies. Molding the parts with plastic/fiberglass was the way that sexy auto body lines could be formed. Early on, there was some hope...

You really don't want to install an O/D transmission in a car with less than a 3.36 rear gear. With a 3.08 gear and 5-speed manual trans, you would need to stay in 3rd gear around town and 4th in...

I've never had a condition where Bleech-Wite didn't clean RWLs. But, if that happens, using a clean rag/cloth with lacquer thinner to wipe them down should clean any 'difficult' material off. And, if...

I'm sure that removing the dedicated back-up lamps after 1968 was nothing but a "cost savings" venture for GM. I had a '68 (years ago); and the amount of light when backing-up was considerably better...

O/D transmission is the best solution. 3.08 rear gear with stock transmission is what is "comfortable" on the highway. I have 3.36 in my C3 and went to the O/D trans. Now it turns 2050 rpm at 70 mph...
