He already ran the numbers Dutch. The block has a production date of 73. So itís been swapped out at some time. Donít know about the heads. Right on the edge of the smog era engines. My brother was a mopar guy( 69 Barracuda RS) as were most of his buddies and they built some pretty hellaish engines using this engine in the later parts of the 70ís.
Iím not looking for a bruiser anyway. Just a cruiser.😎

You can make more power and still be reliable. just don't go over board.

By 73 they were starting to lower the compression ratings but even in Stone stock form with a 2 barrel it would put out 230?? HP which is more then double what the original flat head 6 Put out.
If it does have a mild cam with that 4 barrel on it it should be perked up s bit.
Plus he ran it with headers as well .
All has yet to be revealed.

I hope it is a good one and you get it. A recent episode of Uncle Tony's Garage on You Tube talked about building a 318.

Hope so too, Bob.
Iíll have to check it out.
One of my Aunts that worked her entire life for Dodge used to drive Coronets. 2 door hard tops. She would buy a new one about every 4 years. She had a 69 with a 318 in it. Quick car and a real tire smoker.😜 She sold it to her paper boy( remember those) before my brother or I could get our hands on it.
Good times....
Torchie
