    Before there was Meco, or Finish-Line, or custom made gee-gaws to control adjustable cavation plates, someone fashioned a very workable control handle out of a junk-yard item which saw use on many early "flats" in So-Cal. These were made with "Jeep" hand brake handles (which were exactly the...

    Just picked this up at a great price and am looking for any info. It is a 19' bubble deck and had a 455 with a Jacuzzi pump (I don't have the engine).
