Default Diesel Montclair

I spotted this 67 Montclair online with a 12 Valve installed. It's a couple hours away. He's asking $10K CAD.

I don't understand the fanatacism over Cummins swaps but thought some here might find it interesting.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

If that engine is tuned properly it will get 20 plus mpg and have more reliable power than the original one that came in it. I agree that the "rollin coal" hype is stupid

My first gen cummins I drive daily makes over 400 hp and 1000 ft lbs off torque. It gets 18 mpg empty and 14 pulling 16000 lbs over the mountain passes around here.

To each his own I gues lol

The guy that I got the Dodge Coronet from was building a 49 Dodge business coupe into a gasser.
He was using a Cummins Diesels and said that It would put over 600hp when done.
I know nothing about diesels. I guess for some there is a "Cool" factor.
As far as the "rolling coal" things goes.......

The only reason my truck doesn't make more horsepower and torque is because it's the old set up on the injection pump. My same turbo setup on a couple years newer truck makes almost 800 horsepower and about 1800 foot pounds of torque. They might be heavy but they make up for it. I'd love to put one and something that made some serious horsepower. Nothing is a cooler feeling than when them turbos kick in about 80 lb of boost!

We used to say... if you have an ugly date... put two bags over her head... in case one blows off. (They like to stick their head out the window, according to legend.) I'd put a bag over my head if I had to drive the Montclair three hundred feet... just sayin'...

Speaking to the coupe guy, that's the dumbest thing I've heard lately. A gasser runs on... you guessed it... GAS.

I own a stinkin', rattlin' diesel and I love it, but it'll stay where it belongs... in my TRUCK.

I like the 12V Cummins but just like any engine I feel there's a place and purpose for them. To me it's not in a car that you won't be towing 16,000 lbs with and could get the fuel mileage and drivability with many choices of power train that are more compact, lighter, cheaper, simpler to work on, and don't smell like a diesel and fill other drivers with contempt because of the coal. That's just my opinion though and I know what that's worth

For sake of discussion, would you put a 12 Valve in your Fairlane? Just curious, to me it's similar.

I left out the photo of the back window. It had a very polarizing saying which may lead to judging the current owner even more...
