    I am still making adjustments. Currently it's 230 with powerglide and 4:11 rear end
    i have a 292 with a 350 and a rear end with the 3:36 gears that I will put in as soon
    as they are ready. I only go local now but hope to pull out of state next year.

    Thanks. I have a confession to make, I used dutchboy house paint and an electric Wagner sprayer to shoot the van and camper out in my driveway. I bought the Wagner at a flee market and the paint at menards. Total of about $50 in it. It looks good from 10 feet away and I will tell you everyone who sees it gives me the thumbs up. I just love the feeling of driving this in public. I am sure you all have had the experience. Enjoy it as much as you can.
