1972 Montego GT 429 – January 2015 Updates
This will probably be the last update for my project, or unless something else exciting happens or I make a fairly substantial change.
Those who followed this frame-off, I hope you have enjoyed seeing this car evolve.
I figure 1500 hours and $$$$$ big bucks and a lot of details have gone into it.
Without the patience of my awesome wife of almost 30 years, this (or any of my previous projects) would have happened.
My first show was December 31st 2014 at Quaker Steak and Lube.
I took a ‘top’ trophy. Exciting being my first show with the Montego

January 29 – Received my new Barry Grant (Holley) Mighty Demon 850 Annular booster carb
Next to it is my Holley 870 Avenger carb – vacuum secondaries.
I believe Barry used to work at a local carb shop in this area (Pinellas Park)
Chuck Gulledge Fuel Systems 110th ave.
January 31-2015 Installed the Demon carb. Sure woke up the motor.
Runs great. Only one very minor adjustment.
