    Looks like the 327/350 air cleaner to me, as well.

    Failed Again! 1977 Seville

    Regardless of how out of sync the car may register, the bigger problem is living in a state where a 41 year old car has to be smog checked ! Sad.

    Woodie for sale 1949 Chrysler Royal Best Offer Must Sell

    Posted prices for any vehicle can raise eye brows ....... the value of a car can certainly vary from one seller to another. The art of negotiation between seller and potential buyer can resolve the opinionated differences in pricing. It seems the ruffled feathers have become obvious because of the printed misrepresentation, regarding the condition of the vehicle itself. The original poster has the opportunity to accurately restate the condition ....... or leave the ad as is ........ or delete the ad and start over.

    GREGCHRYSLER, whatever the state of completion may be, the ad you prepared and very misleading to ALL that may be looking for their "special car". It is ads like this that give our car hobby a " black eye " ....... especially to the folks outside of our car hobby, who just want an " old car " to enjoy. The ad should be modified for accuracy or removed, you have the ability to delete it.

    1965 chevy elcamino 327 and 4spd Nice car

    Car could be brought back to a nice stock appearance, had it not been for the cut out rear wheel openings.

    First time I've seen that phrase in a for sale ad

    Misusage only to your way of thinking, Mr. Tinindian. I do not believe anyone stated that "flathead" or "flat 6 " was a term used by the factory. At any rate, the terminology " flathead 6" or "flathead" or " flat 6" was around, long before the Corvair in 1960. It's how that type of engine was known, back then. The 216 and 235 Chevy 6 cylinder engines were known as "stovebolts" ....... but no factory information validated that phrase either.

    1975 Monte Carlo 3,800 original miles all black barn find

    As part of the "LANDAU"" package in 1975, turbine style wheels were standard equipment. The vehicle was probably a sold unit when ordered by the dealer. The buyer opted to have the simulated wire wheel covers , RPO N95, so to eliminate the turbine wheels and add the wire covers generated a $23.00 credit on the retail price.

    1975 Monte Carlo 3,800 original miles all black barn find

    I get trapped by the old posts, every time ! 2013 vs 2018. The " cleaned up ad " states it has a 350 engine, the window sticker says its a 400 engine. From the odometer pic in 2013 compared to the odometer pic in 2018, car has not moved one tenth.

    Being from back in the day when flathead 6 engines were plentiful, before the overhead valve engines came into our lives, the phrase "flat 6 " was known to all of us, back then. The younger folks out there do not necessarily know the phrases we accepted so well.
