Another MoPar example: in 1964, I traded my '60 Fury 2 dr h/t with the 383 Sono engine in for a '65 Sport Fury (426S & 4-speed), and sometime later when I had the '65 in the shop for something or other, the shop foreman told me that "Those old carbs and manifolds sure made a nice clang when they hit the bottom of the garbage can." Nobody wanted the car with the ram tubes so they put a single 4V on it. How many guys would like to pull that set-up out of the garbage can now? Same thing with the Vette's fuel injection -- just couldn't keep any of them running, so most were trashed unless on competition cars.
