I own a ‘64’ Montclair Breezeway. I just replaced the 390 that’s in it, and it was rebuilt and has less than 16,000 miles on the motor.
I believe I’m having vacuum issues in the motor and the transmission.
When I’m at a complete stop and I want to floor it, there’s a “pffft” sound and it acts like it wants to die until I ease off of the pedal, then I ease into it and it’s fine. Although, it takes time to shift, and it does so almost sparatically. Even rolling down the road at say about 45mph, I floor it with some lag and it takes a second for it to really get moving. When he gets going though, it runs like a scalded dog. I love this car, it was a 3rd Deployment gift to myself. I’m currently on my 4th combat tour in Afghanistan right now. I’m stationed at Fort Campbell,KY with the 101st Airborne Division. I’m a Heavy Wheeled Operator.
Another vacuum issue is my Brake Booster isn’t working, as you guys probably know, stopping a car like mine with manual brakes is a job in itself.
The breezeway rear window still works too. I added the make & model as requested, only Montclairs aren’t listed.
Thank you guys!
Look forward to listening to you fellas again when I get home in June. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!
