    11 years is nothing.,

    We found a 9,000 mile 1965 Corvair convertible that was crashed in 1967 and left to sit. We got it in the early 1990’s and freed up the engine and got it to rotate. On original plugs, wires and other parts it ran.

    The valves were wanting to stick and bend but a bottle of Marvel Mystery oil solved that. We got it up and running and drove it on the dry rotted Firestone Rib factory tires.

    The car only need the carbs rebuilt and it ran like new.

    Marvel Mystery oil is your friend in old stuck up engines like this.
