Iíd like to see pictures please. Send to

Thank you Rick and Brian.

Brian, you sir are 100% correct. My dad is 85 and I would consider him my best friend. I am blessed not only to have a very close relationship with him but also blessed by being aware and appreciative of it in real time.

Rick, the motor in 213 at the time we went for our ride is still in it. Itís basically a stock 1965 hipo 289 with a modern solid lift camshaft. That specific cam was recommended to me by the gentleman who restored my vintage Weber setup(its lobe separation is perfectly suited for the Webers to perform). The combination of camshaft, roller rockers, and valve springs/keepers/retainers make for an excellent street engine. Even with just the 4V Holley instead of Webers, it performs exceptionally!

The race motor, which is also included in the sale, is very aggressive in comparison. At over 14 to 1 compression, roller camshaft, and highly finessed heads, it completely changes the experience of driving the car. With it installed, the car attracted even more attention(good and bad)! In full disclosure, I initially decided to swap engines because even just idling the motor to get out of my neighborhood, the car would cause all my neighborís horses to panic and stampede to the back of their properties trying to get away.


213 currently has a stock hipo 289 motor with all the R model trim installed. Along with the car at auction is an additional race engine on a rolling dolly. The race engine is also a date appropriate hipo 289 with lots of goodies for higher performance. Itís dynoed in at 352 ft/lbs torque and 375 horse power

Thank you 427heaven.
I have just about completed the conversion of a 1200 square-foot shop in my backyard into the ultimate man cave/apartment with the intent of moving my dad into it when heís ready.
I am very proud of how it looks. I did most of it myself and it turned out better than expected.
213 looked great in there. Even though my dad lives only 5 miles from my home, I think him living there instead of 213 is the best possible outcome.

213 in its old hangout.

Fellas, Iím sorry but Iím still confused. So just to clarify the discussion for my feeble mind:

1) Jerry, your last posting ends without a period or question mark. Are you asking if the R model Tach was made by a different company or are you stating that it was in fact made by a different company?

2) 98SVT, I was under the impression the tachometer in the R model was the same as the street car(Faria) but just the needle color is white. Iíll look through what I can find from back in the day to see if the Tach is listed as a Stewart Warner piece.

3) Bob, are you saying the R models used S.W. tachometers?
