Question
What is the down side to a 1977 S with 2.7 with 60,000 miles. What do we need to look for? I believe the chain tensioners have been upgraded. Thank you.

Answer
Engines tended to over heat because of the lack of an oil cooler and type of engine material which caused pulled head studs. At 60k or so is when problem surfaces. 77 is not a good buy unless is so cheap you can afford a another engine. Call if you like 609 351 2068

Top end over haul $8000
