But it's not "Another One" John as it is furthur up the page in June and was for sale with Appleyards :shock: or am I being a Numpty here :oops:
They dropped the compression on the "G" series Engines didnt they :cry: "E" series were 10:1 , then the "G" series were down to 8.7:1, then up again when they used the early 440 to 10:1 again.. strange why Chrysler did that :evil: Gits :lol:

Hands up , my mistake

It's the only time I didn't add the chassis number to my

spreadsheet. I'm blaming Windows 10 which put my

PC out of action for days.

will be more careful.

128/4522 is now for sale £10k more than June.
