But you can pull out the radiator and shroud and drop in a recliner and work on the engine with ease!Having had a 71 and 85,I personally would choose a stout 87. The 70-72 are huge boats and handle poorly. Fan shroud is 2/3 of a 55 gallon drum to give you an idea of the length of the front end alone. Without serious suspension & steering upgrade, that poor weight distribution makes it wallow through turns.
I don't regret letting it go, I do somewhat regret the 85. Nicer, more comfortable interior, much better handling, better overall styling vs. a basic 70's style.
