Another freebie!!
I now scored the right side HP manifold!!
Although not "correct" for a 68,it will work on the Boab.It still looks the same ..From a 73 440 Fury cop car in a yard in Brownsville ,NY
The flange is clocked at an angle but I am getting a new exhaust system eventually.
Gallahad the friend I am helping sell the '70 300 had it sitting in his barn for years.He was never planning on using it so...

When the lefty shows up,I will get both blasted and planed.Then they will get coated .
When I get to that stage in the resto,they will go on with a new TTi system.
It will look factory to the general public.I am not really concerned if it is not "numbers matching"--as long as it fits,works and is pleasing to the eye I am happy..
For now,parts keep coming...

Steve,if I ever come across the "correct" 2806900 HP,I will give it to you.
I did locate three left side C body HP manifolds '67-'69
for a really good price..Want one? or all? PM me.
But no right ones.They were raped by the B body resto guys.

I am just waiting for spring so I can get back to work on the BoaB..

Found this gem of a score.NEW bumper for the BoaB!! SCORE!!
I was not looking for another bumper since I have three rear cores.
Buuuuuttt..It is a bolt on deal!! For 350.00 it is a deal compared to a quote of $800.00 to get my best core re-chromed.
A deal to me--but not to Gerri!! This part blows the budget out of whack--for a while anyways. My wallet needs a vacation and go on a diet after this purchase!! LOL!!
I took the plunge and dug a hole for myself.
Now Gerri wants to see results from the shower of parts--"That car better look as good as you say it will be with all the money you spent!"
The seller lives just a couple hours away from my sister's house.He will dropp the bumper there.I am hoping to go down during spring break to pic it up.
Or Sis will put it on the bus!! They will take it!! She has checked into it already,Just in case!!
Pics next page..

I skipped across the border to pick up the HP manifold.
Good day for travelling on this President's Day (Family Day here in Ontario).
There was a wait getting into the U.S. but cross back into Canuckville noooo problem with parts in the trunk!! 
The crossing guard asked what I was restoring,asked the cost/value of parts (I said 20 bux) gave me a greasy look and said "Final answer?"
Yes"
"Have a nice day!!"

Here is my pair of HP's.If you do not include the 20 I spent in gas,total for the lot is $81.00.
I am going to get them cleaned and planed.That will cost about 40 bux at our machine shop that is associated with my work.
Still way below cost of what others had paid in the past .
