Welcome to Mayhem Central! --- Great to see another classic being brought back to life, but you have to understand that we have one rule here..."without pictures, it didn't happen".
Seriously though, I would love to see what this old gal looks like. And if it is any compensation...I used to own a '66 Dodge Town Wagon with the legendary slant six. It had 99,000 miles on it when I bought it and had over 380,000 when I sold it seventeen years later. Other than points, plugs and normal wear items...I never had to touch that motor and it was still running like a top. No smoke, no drips, no oil use. I was racing motorcycles back then and it took me coast to coast more times than I can count without a hiccup.
Go for it!
