Thanks Dave!   I hope that the frame rails are okay.  If so, it will be on the road in Spring!    Yesterday, I went to my friends place to give some storage money, and had to pinch myself again that I have a Bird... Can't wait to get it home again! 2thumbs

Ok guys, finally getting back to the Bird.   Going to start up all the questions again....

Anyone know if the Birds hood latch is the same for all 70 models?

That looks like a "homemade" latch tray you have there, or someone cut out a rotted/damaged center section and used just the front/rear rails,... I'd suggest you get one of Gene Gregory's one piece steel latchtrays before they're gone, IIRC they retail for under $750



Just a little FYI...Superbird latchtrays were just leftover Daytona trays, "turned 180 degrees, the end tabs cut off, the rear lip tab trimmed down, the Tona' safety latch hole plated over with a patch, a new hole punched for the Bird's safety latch, a hood spring added, and a few new mounting holes, and wala! the Superbird latch tray was created, my trays are created mush like J.McGaughey's were, formed, welded...Gene's are true 1 piece stampings like original




Superbird tray pictured below is a J.McGaughy piece, the Daytona steel tray is one of my pieces, sorry I don't have a pic of my Superbird tray at this time, but I do make them, if interested

more on the latch itself

Your latch tray has been modified.  Hopefully they kept the clips that hold the spring in place - they are Superbird only unless you count the one you might find on a 1970 Imperial.

Ok guys, I've had this car for three years already..... FINALLY going to get it on the road! 2thumbs

Looking at the 6 pack carbs, the car came with the following carbs -

List 4382 date code of 2679 (Front)

List 4365 date code of 3399 (Outboard)

List 4144 date code of 0436 (Center)

From what I am reading, my front carb is the only thing that is correct.   I'm showing the Bird should have a 4375 (Center) and a 4383 (Rear).   Can someone confirm this?

I appreciate the help! cheers

Mike,
 Great find getting an authentic replacement latch tray for your Superbird!
That is one of the most noticeable items when you lift the hood.

Mike,
 I got home before 426 Linda and had time to remove the air cleaner and check out the carbs!
Here is what I found:
 Front carb LIST 4382 dated 323 9
 Center carb LIST 4376 dated 321 9 ( AUTO TRANS! )
 Rear Carb LIST 4383 dated 324 9

 I was surprised by how close the dates were on the 3 different carbs within 3 days.
Also even more surprised by how close to the November 28th build date 332 9 they were!
