I will have to go look and see what carb that is.
Since it isn't the carburetor that it was supposed to have, I'm going to bet that it's a Holley. Probably a 4150 with vacuum secondaries. That is a popular replacement. But the "proper&correct" carburetor is the Autolite 4100 1.12. Here is a link to see that unit:
Autolite 4100 1.12 C4AF-9510 DG Carburetor
Really? 4v, and 4bbl mean the same thing?? I thought the 4v part had something to do with the block? I guess not.
Actually, if one wanted to get really technical, one could argue that 4bbl refers to the the number of venturis in the carburetor, and 4v refers to the number of holes in the intake manifold. But generally, 4bbl, or 4v refers to the engine having a four barrel carburetor/four venturi manifold.
I am only 16 you know lol
Oh, to be young again!
I just ran the vin on decodethis.com and it said that the car came with a 4bbl, and the motor that is in my car now, is a 2bbl
So it may be that this is not the original engine, or not the original intake manifold/carburetor. I noticed on the picture of the engine that the outlet on the intake manifold doesn't have the double outlet like the 65 that "oneputtster" supplied the JPG of here a while back. It rather has the single outlet with a tube going to the carburetor spacer. That's an indication that engine is NOT the original engine, and may be from an earlier year.
What is the "letter" in the fifth position on the VIN?
If it is a "Z" then the book "Super 60s Fords" says that it came with a "Ford built, 'Holley-style' carburetor".
BUT... the OTHER 390 engine offered in 1965 was a "P-Code" engine.
Is the "letter" in the fifth position on the VIN a "P"? That would be a "rare" engine as it would indicate that the car was a "Police Interceptor", with solid lifters, and 330 HP. That might explain why the engine was replaced, as someone might have wanted just the engine.
If the "letter" in the fifth position is an "X" then the engine is a 352 w/ a 4bbl.
But I didn't see ANY 390 in 1965 that had a 2bbl carburetor.
Yes, it is rusted that bad, can't tell from the pic, but it is just about all the way thru the floor, yes it is the passenger rear part, right where the person in the back seat puts their feet.
It may very well be that it NEEDS replacing. It's hard to tell from the JPG. But the "fix" that I was going to tell you about is one that I used on Ms. American 3.14159's rust holes in the the passenger compartment and trunk floors, which is an aluminum foil and epoxy resin laminate. I was not able to work 14 guage sheet metal to get all the indentations, ridges, and compound curves, BUT I can shape aluminum foil, and make the contours of the floor the same as the original. And it only takes about five layers of aluminum foil and epoxy resin to equal the thickness of the floor. It's easy, quick, and inexpensive to do, and comes out, once it is coated top and bottom, to be indistinguishable from the more convention "fix" of cutting out the old pan and welding in a new one. I've pretty much documented the process in the the thread titled: "The Great Aluminum/Epoxy Resin Rusted Floor Fix Caper" which is current on the FM Forum. I've just finished putting Hurculiner Bed Liner on the floor of the 3.14, and you can't tell that it has been patched at all. It looks and feels as good as a new floor!
Yes, I'm keeping everything for it. I'm already thinking about selling the white interior I took out of it.
The heavy rubber mats can be put out in the sun on a flat surface where they get hot and flatten out. Any tears in them can be fixed with Gorilla Glue. Then they are sprayed with "NAPA Performix PLASTI-DIP Multi-Purpose Rubber Coating", and they come out looking brand new! Besides, they're under the carpet padding and carpet anyway.
No, I do not have a name for it, I'm not totally sure what I could call it. Any ideas? ?
Will have to give the name some thought as the project progresses. I will say that giving "it" a name changes "it" from an "it" to a "who"!
"She" (since "it" IS a Gal
-axie) will usually have a feminine name, although Deb might disagree. And some time ago there was an FM Forum netizen named "T-BirdChick" who said that what determined if a car was a male or a female was if it had a single exhaust pipe it was a boy, and if it had dual exhausts it was a girl.
Thanks so much for all of your info.
You are welcome, I'm sure. There are lots of GREAT people here with lots of answers to lots of questions.
Hope this finds YOU doing well.
