Dig it! Wonder what the reserve is..........also of note from the listing:

However, currently it does not pass smog in California!
It actually passes the smog emissions test and evap. test for the year, make and model, but fails the visual test because of the Edelbrock intake and carb. setup. There is no CARB exemption for the Edelbrock parts, they never got around to doing that...
That is right, it passes the sniffer and is within the legal emissions levels mandated by California, but fails the visual and hence cannot be registered as is in this ridiculous state... Only in California!

I've heard that some people register their car in other states and thus are exempt from stupidity. They have to fly to that state and renew. Someone figured it out.

I mean at this point I would slap a rebuilt carb from Napa onto it or whatever the year called for. CA emissions is a joke. Cars that are 44 years old still being smogged? Get out of here.

I've heard that there are a few states you can register in without having to be a resident of that state.....? Is this right? Could've sworn that some Land Rover guys in CA sometimes do this with imported 110's or Defenders.

It’s popular with expats. CA wants vehicles operated in state registered in the state, if you stay under the radar...
