Well, I've got the car. The carburetor needs tuning as it idles pretty rough, but otherwise it runs good. But speaking of the carburetor, it's a Rochester Monojet, that's right an honest to goodness single barrel carburetor. My old '71 vw beetle had a bigger carb. Should be a bonus to the fuel economy, assuming it's not restricting intake to the point of increasing engine load.
