I have been reading a lot of your posts and have to say amazing what some of you guys did with your cars!
Frankly I hope that I'm posting this in the right forum... I am the happy owner of a bone stock 69 SS/RS 350 ragtop - one of the very few 69 SS cars that were shipped to Switzerland in early 1969 (kph tach etc).
I love the car and everytime I fire up that big old V8 it puts a grin on my face
Since I use the car as a daily driver in summer I'd love to get your suggestions on how to get some modern tech in my ride. My goal is to improve handling (lots of curves in Switzerland...), braking and fuel efficiency (even more expensive in Europe than in the US) while keeping original looks and without making permanent modifications (no welding, etc.).
I was thinking about one of the kits either from Hotchkis (TVS I/II) or CPP (Pro Touring Stage III) since I'm too stupid to assemble a sensible parts combination myself
What I don't know though is how far I should go, e.g. would you suggest also control arms, adjustable shocks?
The SS came with front discs. Is there a good bolt-on kit to replace the rear drums that will fit under my 15" rally wheels? Would you also replace the stock front discs with the same kind of breaks as in the rear?
Since fuel economy and low end torque matter most to me(I'm a relaxed cruiser, never over 2500 rpm) I was thinking about getting an Edelbrock Performer Air Gap intake with a Holley 570 or 670 street avenger. Other than that not a lot of ideas so any input is welcome! Budget is limited but I have learnt that sometime it's cheaper to go with a slightly pricier option simply not to pay twice...
Any other suggestions are most welcome
