    I’m finishing up my 71 Roadrunnner. 440/4 speed , has the 3.91 8 3/4 sure grip. I did all the the restoration myself. Not perfect but I’m happy with it. I did what I wanted it to look like. May change some things later.

      I still have to insure and tag it before I get it on the road. I plan on driving it to the exhaust shop. I have a 3.55 laid back just in case.
