Lol!! Idk show me where to add oil to your chassis and I will let you know...

You can grease your car if that's what you mean you have several fittings you can add grease to with a grease gun.. And actually foxbodies have subframes not a true full chassis car.

I oiled my chasy a few months ago, it was quite easy and fast. I drove to work and come back a few weeks later to find a jack had busted a quart of oil in my trunk, it had a couple holes and so I'm all good for now

Lol...when I first got my car it was self oiling itself via nasty rear main seal leak,but the nice thing is that it kept those parts of the car fairly rust free

I went to look at an escort for a work car one time. A few blocks from 41 dragstrip. Anyways the dude told me it was perfect, no lights on, always serviced etc etc etc. So I get there, about a 50 minute drive. And every single dummy light on the dash was on, check engine, low coolant. Lol.

So I have him pop the hood. And there is oil everywhere. And not used oil. The guy tells me he buys an extra quart of oil everytime he changes the oil and lubes everything. He lubed the the top of the strut towers, the hood hinges, the hood latch. I mean he lubed everything!

He was about 3 fries short of a happy meal!

I would imagine that would make the exhaust smell lovely.

Yes the oil is purple in color when it's new, but since your motor has gas combustion cyls it produces carbon as a by-product and changes the color of your oil to a dark color.
