    Hello all. A new guy here. I just recently purchased a 69 1200 with a manual trans, 4x4, and a plow. It runs, just doesn't stop. ... Body is complete with every type of ventilation holes you could imagine.... Haha. It is gas the split style rims on it, and I am wondering two major things, one, can a guy get different rims? And what can a guy get for brakes?

    Ken, the engine model number should be stamped into a flat spot on the front passenger side of the block, just below the head. Probably a 304 or 345. Outside chance it's a 392. It might be hidden under layers of "rust preventative"

    Good luck, Mike

    You should be able to see it through the passenger-side fender well.

    If you mean the inner fender is gone, then that engine number should be really easy to spot.

    Mine came from Arkansas, hopefully it's got most of the rusting out of its system here in the (usually) arid west.

    Found out it's a 304 with a Holley two barrel on it. The carb is leaking fuel around the bowl somewhere. I'm thinking the bowl gasket. If I fix that and the brakes, I'll be a happy man. Someone has gooped some silicone on the bowl...
