All right! So I went home this weekend and brought it to the girlfriend's house. Got some bad news, she's not original. That's not the original engine. It had the 273 Commando, but the guy didn't like that. It now has a 383 with a Holley carb and intake and MSD ignition (that's what the switch in the dash is, ignition timing adjuster). Since it's not original, though, I'm now not afraid to play with it. I now have huge plans.
If someone could check this VIN for me, I would appreciate it:
That's what I pulled off the inside, driver's door.
And here's the pictures (warning, there are a lot).
With these pictures, I didn't have time to crawl under the car so I just reached under there and took what I could:
On the back of an aluminum part with the fish on it, I pulled this number:
2839108 AN NO 50-541, does that mean anything?
On the steering column I pulled this number:
AP42, does that mean anything?
