Description: This project is beginning to look like it's coming together. The finishing touch is going to be the delivery of, and my installing the new transmission package kit. It is scheduled for delivery around the end of this month.

After talking to my local car restoration expert he highly recomended Met's Engines Inc. here in Lafayette Louisiana as the only place he trusted to do engine work on all his projects. I took my block, crank and heads to J.R. at Met's and told him what I wanted this engine for and he took over from there. I got it back in the short block form completely remachined and assembled. I took it home and began putting it back together and these are the pictures that tell the story so far.
