    There used to be an old cop car in a junkyard here and I always wanted to get the speedometer our of to replace my 85 mph one. I think the cop one went to about 130, anyone know for sure? It was a Volare.

    Hm. Mine goes to 100. 4 door, but it has a 318 seemingly with CA emissions. I wonder what mine started life as...

    I bought my '79 Road Runner new, and still have it. It was special ordered by the dealer with engine option E46, which was the 318 4barrel - Thermoquad.
    it also came with the California emissions package, which seemed to be manditory with a 318 - 4bbl, though there were no tough emission laws here in Wisconsin.
    As soon as the warranty was up, the air pump and related equipment was taken off the engine and put in a box.
    If the factory hose routing diagram decal is still on the cowl of your car, it will say what type of carburetor the car had, 2bbl, 4bbl, etc.
    I'm attaching a few pictures, not sure if you can make out the window sticker, but I'll try.

    Always one bad decision away from a good time.
