I've always used these in 6S1575 and they have worked great.

Will never forget the 1st time I put Amsoil synthetic in my '72 351 Mach 1 in 1974.  Same result - idle speed increased about 200 rpm and the engine ran a little cooler according to what I saw on the temp guage.

Several years ago someone else asked the same question and the reply was for rattle can paint - plasti-kote T-31 bright orange was almost a perfect match.  I used that and was very happy with the result.  I just checked and it's still readily available.

I left mine on the shelf and bought a new version from Napa for regular driving.  Works great and even looks similar to the uneducated.

I just bought the new leather pads from Shelby Parts & Restoration a few years ago.  They also sent me the correct rivets.  Easy to change yourself if the old ones are too deteriorated for what you want for the car.

Those old Holley 2 x 4's still look like new and ran great all last year.  I'm bringing the car out of hibernation this Sunday and expect more of the same this year.

+1  Courier brokerage fees + customs + taxes can be stupid expensive.  Use USPS with insurance and tracking if at all possible. 

Insurance value can be different / more than the declared value of the declared service provided.  That was the case when I had my carb restored in the US. 

My understanding is that what is supposed to be declared is the value of the restoration service vs the value of the restored carb.  Makes no sense to tax someone for something that is theirs.  I've had parts restored in the US and sent back to Canada, and the value of the restoration work only was declared, and I have never had an issue.  Whether tax or import fees are actually payable usually depends on the shipping service.  Always if a courier is used / not usually for USPS Priority (my experience).

That vin has several hits on google.  Neither the current listings or the 2012 Mecum auction info state that the engine is original to the car.  That would suggest to me that it isn't.  If original, that is typically highlighted given how important that is to many buyers.
