CSX7073 is here and it is pretty impressive. Ross Henry did quite a job with these cars and SA was wise to bring him on board. Th food news is the cars are much more accurate to the originals. The bad news is if you were used to building the previous 7000’s, you will have to adjust to a few things. Our experience with original cars and parts leaves us in a comfortable position dealing with these latest 7000’s.
The first thing we did was replace the headlights with Lucas PL7000’s. Then we pulled the dash and gauges to do the dash panel swap and original gauge install. We currently have the long block assembled and should be dressing the rest of the engine soon.
