I have to agree on the vacuum deal. I looked up that cam and is not all the aggressive so he should have plenty of vacuum with out the pump.

Also states that it is a Ram Air car and I do not see any Ram Air.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

It's a 72 -  turn signals were under the bumper.  It's also not a Mach 1, nor does it have the Exterior Decor Group, so no sport lamp grille.

Agreed, the 268H is a very mild cam at 218/218 duration and should easily pull 15" vacuum. I ran the more aggressive 280H which is 230/230 and it had plenty of vacuum for the factory power brakes.


Either way, it's a nice looking car and appears to be pretty solid. The doors sound really good when closed, not the usual "coffee can full of bolts" sound you hear.

It may have been Ram Air, but the air cleaner wouldn't have fit that ugly HEI distributor.

I am interested - it is a very pretty car, I love the colour, I even like the chromed NACA inlets - on that colour with the chrome front lip it sort of works... it would work over here in the European market for those that are not interested in all original - but that pump noise is horrific and that horse doesn't need to be nailed to the fan cowl. . 

I'm seeing subtle differences with my own though ...

  • The antenna hole is in drv rear qtr panel rather than drv front wing.  Chin
  • 351 RAM AIR decals are a bit high up the hood
  • The wheel rims are not something I've seen before
  • Loads of 3rd party add ons ...that doesn't bother me as much as it does purists
  • Body dings are easily and invisibly fixable 

...sorry but I just couldn't live with that digga-digga-digga pump noise. My brain cells would incandescently erupt with all my OCD, spattering my brain all over my garage wall at the speed of light...my poor wife would have to clean up. .  Bomb  

The only noise that should ever come from the front of one of these, is the satisfying, captivating, delicate, intoxicating hum of a Cleveland 13726548 firing order, conjugated with the soft flow of air through the radiator, united with the rotation of the fan....ahhh beautiful  Big Grin  , Mozart, Mendelssohn, Beethoven or even Motorhead haven't come up with music this good.  Tongue

Pretty nice car, but ya that pump is ridiculous! They think it’s needed cause it has 4 wheel disc brakes. The vacuum should be fine for that, especially with that small of a cam. But with that removed, shortening up the tail pipes and a few other things I think it would be a pretty nice car. I think the only major change needed would be to change that cam to something larger. It’s a 4v motor and it could definitely use some more cam than that. Oh, and removing that annoying pump!
1Sostatic, it has your name all over it, it’s green! Lol It is a beautiful green though, I really like it. If you were to get this one, then are you going to keep the one you have? If so, then you either have a great and understanding wife or, your like me and single so you can blow all your money on these cool cars with no one to bitch at you about it.
