1969 Tri-Power

Hi All,

Well, after many months of patience, our 1969 427 Tri-Power has arrived to its new home :drool:
Here are some photos of the new toy, as it arrived and after its first wash.

I haven't managed to get it started yet - the battery went flat during transit and there was no fuel in the tank. I put 10 litres of 98 octane fuel in and replaced the battery with the one from my 302 Ford ute. It was then I found that the ute battery did not have enough juice to crank the big block! Oh well, no matter, I checked the fluid level in the Corvette battery and put it on charge over night.

:cheers:
