my notes show that VIN 9 carbs had EL secondary rods versus the VINY DD secondary rods. Also a very small difference in the Open distance of the air flaps. beyond that they are identical.I figured so. I could have sworn somebody claimed they were the small castings. Does it have any differences in calibration compared to Vin Y cars?
VIN 9 did not have electric choke. They ran the heat tube from the intake. But you can change it out.my notes show that VIN 9 carbs had EL secondary rods versus the VINY DD secondary rods. Also a very small difference in the Open distance of the air flaps. beyond that they are identical.
Cool almost fact- maybe- on Leap Year H/Os: It is suspected that at least some of those weird ones converted on Leap Year were made with black hood scoops and/or wings from Cars and Concepts. Judy Badgley and I were talking about that possibility a few years back. It seemed as if there were a handful of examples randomly show up and they were Leap Year cars. Nobody or nothing has been found to absolutely verify this suspicion, but random H/Os for sale with black scoops, etc., were found in various spots in the country. Don't know if that was a goof or co-winky-dink or how that transpired. Might be something, might be nothing.Just got back some info on one of my 84' Hursts...it is #3193 and was built February 29th 1984...there is no 29th of February...its a leap year car...nothing really special but a cool fact...took about a month for the onfo but submitted it right befote the holidays.
