Junkyard Crawl - Forgotten F-bodies

Steve finds himself amongst some foul f-bodies in this installment of Junkyard Crawl.

Early F-bodies are super hot these days, especially factory-performance models and four-speed sticks. But with so many re-creations, tributes, and clones on the scene, unmolested originals are becoming hard to find. Dig on these forgotten relics we spotted in New England recently. OK, they're hardly unmolested and they're riddled with cancer, but their time-capsule status makes them a shocking sight that's music to the eyes of junkyard crawlers like us.





Groovy Factoids

*Early '70 Camaro sales literature lists the optional 450hp LS6 454, but the super Rat was cancelled after erroneous brochures were distributed. The LS6 was only installed in Chevelles and Corvettes in 1970.

*The 1.92-inch intake valves of the '66 Pontiac OHC 230 six were the same diameter as the 389 V-8, but with 38 cubes per cylinder versus the V-8's 48 cubes, the OHC had exceptional breathing for its displacement.
