the Cradle Robber moved under it's own power.
Which had sat since before 1975!
The hold up had been the original updraft intake.
Years ago I had a running version of this,
so I knew a couple tricks.
My half-ass cleanup rebuild couldn't get this one going.
This bitchin modified intake was donated from HAMB-er and IG-er I've known for years.
and the old torch work brightened up after a good cleaning.
making me wonder if it was an early kit.
A beat Holley 1904 came with the package,
but it was easier to find a running replacement.
and the engine ran better than ever.
and a choke cable added.
good enough with these not quite brakes.
