No. Put a 390 in it and you can get 9 MPG. Or even 10, with a tailwind.

Welcome to the AZ chapter.

I need to find some parts, but the last few trips to the South Phoenix yards didn't prove to be fruitful. Any leads on yards with reasonable parts?

Parts

Rear window and hood hinges. I read somewhere on the forum to weld a bolt in place of the rivet on the hood hinge and double nut it. Anyone ever have luck with that?

BTW the Edelbrock made a huge difference on that 352. The Holly was 750 cfm off an early 80's motor home, I may have been a wee bit over sized on the carburetor.
