My name is Jeff (aka 3rd LUV). I joined last February but just a week or so ago figured out how to activate my joining. :oops: Already posted some pics in header clearance issues. I bought my current LUV off Craigslist out of Arizona. No rust, but registration was a mess. Registered as a '72 with a fake VIN, but matched the pink. CHP investigated and it wasn't stolen, but actually a '74. Gave me a new VIN then Calif. DMV registered it as a '72. Came with a 283 and powerglide that was a hack and whack job. My first mod was a Ford 8.8 posi (redrilled fronts with discs on all 4 corners), and vintage Americans. Built and installed a 350 VORTEC with 10.25:1 pistons; COMP roller with .510 lift (no machine work but only seated the valve guide seals and installed LS6 valve springs with COMP retainers and keepers [no issues]); full needle roller rockers, Assault dual plane with 750 dbl pumper, Accel HEI and HOOKER full length headers (educated guess is around 425 hp), running through a th350 with B&M converter and a B&M shifter. Got rid of the bucket seats and installed a bench seat and custom gauge panel. Next month is paint (Chevy electric blue with red pearl). I hope to meet and have good conversation with other LUVers, and hopefully find some that live in the SF Bay Area. Happy holidays to you all and may the new year be LUVly.
