Old 429,

Hope it works out. They appear to be the flat springs for the ram air hood.

Hi Ed

You not being a 71 guy.................if you want me to buy all (now you have to pack up) OR DELIVER if you are coming to MI to visit again Will do that.   

If you just want to mail the spring that is fine.
