Connected to the radio. Every time the car, hit a bump in the road, he would make some crazy reverb noise. The car had a 390 CID engine. I think it got around 9 mpg. I liked the swing in steering wheel, air craft control levers, and the coolest feature, where the repeating tail lamps. The rear end sat so low to the ground. The interior was so space aged.
    Yeah, tail dragging was a serious problem on the 64-66 Bird. We dropped by Myrmo's and had them stick in an extra leaf and new binding clamps. It brought the rear back up and we didn't have to drive w/ 2 fingers on the steering wheel. (Hands on at speed and it'd "land yacht" down the freeway w/ the stock springs.) It was the first car we had with a low fuel light and swing away steering wheel. It was also the first of our cars I did body work on, replacing the right front quarter panel (after dad smacked a parked car).

    I did a Weber on my '73 VW van when the idle circuit (built into the left carb) failed. In the early 80's, the factory carbs were $1200 each, so I went with a Weber and a cross-over manifold. I never did get it to work quite right. It ran fine, but getting it fired up took serious skill. It was a bit too much carb for the 1700 cc engine. Come to think of it, the '89 Hyundai Excel had a similar problem... again a factory carb cost way too much. Maybe quality had gone down by 1985, since they seemed to work well enough in the 60's.

    I've long thought the Weber should be in the Museum of Modern Art !

    I spent most of my money on fast cars, guitars and pretty women. I somehow managed to waste the rest of it.

    Yup! I actually really want a car with a Weber on it again - or maybe 2! I love modern fuel injection systems, but I do know how well a properly tuned Weber works!

    That's one of the reasons I bought my '73 coupe. I was missing those days where you can tinker with something. The new cars are pretty bulletproof until something electronic goes wrong. The old car is so purely mechanical it is like working on a car model. This is a relatively simple Weber DGV and it works so well. I've fined tuned the jets in search of perfection (probably not necessary - more so just for the fun of it), but right out of the box it's essentially flawless.

    What I love about a Weber is that the entire fuel curve is so adjustable, and the whole thing has so few moving parts. The fuel mixture depends mostly on the shape of a few metal parts, except for cold start and acceleration, and sometimes high speed enrichment.
