Well my fingers are getting tire, if you have any questions ask I am selling this way cheaper than it is worth you will get thumbs up everywhere just the way it sits.

Miles and mileage on title is 65972 . On the 440 one of the ears on the block where the mount goes broke off, I repaired with nut and bol, nothing of concern. The frame has been boxed all the way down both sides, every hole and dimple was welded in, also the rear end all the holes and dimples were filled in with weld and smoothed and painted. Just remembered when stuck in heavy traffic or sitting at a long red light always keep your eyes on the temperature gauge, this 440 gets hot real fast, not enough engine compartment to pull enough air through radiator so she will get very hot, as long as you watch temperature gauge its ok. I have had to pull over a few times to let it cool down
