        For those that don't know, this engine was an R2 for a 1963 Lark, Cruiser or Hawk.
        I know that Paul is looking for information on the specific car that it was installed in.

                        Great find, perfect Paul! That will work just fine on today's fuel as an R1, at 9.0 to 1. Just right as is, with the low compression Truck heads.

                        Is it complete with intake and exhaust and Supercharger brackets?
