Super.
Mine will have the Deluxe Nugget Gold interior, TMI's one piece headliner, can't decide on a factory console or Hump Hugger (I have both), Gold striping, Shelby 10 spokes.
It is a J code, A/T, A/C, P/S, P/B. I've been thinking of the GT valance, but the repro's are really poor fitting.
I've already got a CS grill (from Mike), Marchal lights, all new glass, and I'll be upgrading the A/C to the rotary compressor.
My son-in-law wants to jazz up the 302 performance, and I want an Edelbrock 500CFM carb, and send the 4300 carb to my adopted son, Rob, for his inventory.

Now the fun of assembly begins. I love that phase of doing a complete restoration. You can work all day and barely get your hands dirty.

Dad,
Can you send me the cast date on the 4300? Might have a home for it.

Now, let me and your son-in-law jazz that bad boy up!! Can you spell Weiand Supercharger??

You may want to look at Edelbrock's new AVS2 series of carbs (intro'ed 11/2017). Looks like they are exactly the same as the Performer series (1403, 1406, etc) but with primary annular discharge boosters replacing the down-leg boosters on Performers (as well as a tune-able airflap for the vac secondaries). The reviews online seem to be all positive (some claiming that it's got the throttle response of EFI) and Edelbrock is pricing it competitive with the Performer series... I think the inexpensive EFI units are forcing the carb guys to innovate a bit.
