The motor, of course, has been a real pleasure to build. It started off as a '71 YS GTO 400. The block is the only thing left of that motor.

I installed the Eagle 461 stroker kit. Added the Comp Cams version of the GM #9794041 1970 RAM AIR IV cam. Stepped up to Kauffman Aluminum D-port heads with 1.65 rockers, and topping it off with the new Barry Grant SixShooter. MSD 6AL will provide the spark.

I have a Richmond ROD 6-speed trans to back it with 3.08 legs.

This should get me to the grocery store before it closes! :) Check out the pics in the album.
