Re: SHaker for 1970 mach 1
I had a complete shaker for a torino, only paid 20 bucks for it...long story short, saw a beautiful red 70 torino scj429 at parts store with chrome small filter sticking thru the hood- owner explained he'd just got the (512 I think) motor in and the hi-rise manifold wouldnt allow his shaker to fit and he didnt want to cut it up...I gave him the one I had, as I had no use for it- and had no idea what they were worth- and now repop top castings are available...i think the flapper lid was same for torino...coulda had a shaker for 250 for mine now. DOH! Ive seen complete ones go for near a grand on ebay...hate to think of all the stuff ive pitched over the years, mint original interior from my 69(went mach1, no place to store) two blue and one red interior for a 69 camaro, scrapped the 69 camaro as it was kinda rusty(a few yrs ago a friend paid $5K for one in far worse condition...from now on I'll keep everything :)
