<VV> Correct Engine?
Tue, 25 May 2004 10:09:29 -0600
The engine was originally turbocharged, at least the block. The YR code
says 62-63 Turbo engine. The turbcharger was likely removed and replaced
with two carburetors. The important thing is the head numbers, they
basiclly determine a lot about the engine. The car was not a spyder to
begin with, that has been added. The 967 means it is a monza convertible.
667 Would mean Spyder convertible, Spyder being the term for a car that
came from the factory with the turbocharged engine. Most likely the car
came stock with a 80 hp engine, by the lack of a emblem on the decklid.
Hope That Helps,
