Lets see. Ignition shielding and ramshorn exhaust make it a 63-67 vette. Brake master cylinder looks like a 64.
Red, 1964, vette convertible (ragtop?).
What do I win?

Hey Ragtop ,
Is that a puddle of antifreeze on the intake? You could have at least dried it up with a paper towel before the picture
It is though

Ya I tried it. I tied a O-ring housing, paper type gasket and every combination. I also tryed filling the surface flat with a hand file. I realy is starting to piss me off if you must know because it is my daily drive in the summer time. Charlie

I also had the old radiator recored because several others said it "sounded like the radiator is puged up" to the tune of $300 and it still pisses . Mabe I will just pull the motor and use it for a boat anchor that what I the old timers round here tell me it is good for.
