I checked the master list and this is the second lowest VIN I have for a pickup. That means it is PROBABLY a '68, if it has a 3-speed transaxle it is definitely a '68. Some items are different for the '68 but look at P. 27, 28, and 100 in the BOOK OF REPRINTS and you will see all the points and cond...

Your VIN says it is a '69 (some parts changed from '69) but fairly
early '69 since most has glass rear windows.

Nearest VIN K111l 4253 is also owned by a member in FL,

Re: Wrong hand drive in Melbourne

That's why the 450 was phased out, EK-32 had more horsepower and torque.
If you could find an EK-33 that would REALLY make it faster.
But mill 0.050" off the heads of your EK-32 and you will gain torque.
