About

I bought this car to help ease the pain of not be able to drive my other one while it is being resurrected! Found it on Craigslist tried to get the guy to hold it, but said first come first serve so i offered to give him a thousand as a down payment and he went for it. Car isn't near as fast as my other one but it runs super good and has a nicer interior and better sheet metal than my other one did when i first got it. It is pretty much an all around nicer Chevelle but i guess i can live with trading in some horsepower for quality everywhere else. Though the moment i sense a hick up it is gunna get beefed up! I don't think it is a real SS but it does have everything to make a guy think it is, i love the fact that it is SS's out (i just prefer the look)She Aint perfect (yet!) but it is bought and paid for sitting in my drive!

Specs

350 SBC, Holley Carb, Edelbrock RPM Performer intake, Crane Cam with 216 Degrees Duration @ .050” Int/Exh. , 272 Advertised
Degrees Duration Int/Exh., 110 Degrees Lobe Separation,Open/Close @ .050” Cam Lift Int 43 /Exh 7, Gross Lift Int.Exh. .454 I looked up the part number for all that information. Crane cam. It says it is good for 1600 rpm to 5400 RPM and their description of it is "Good low end and mid range torque, good idle, daily usage, off road, highway towing, fuel efficiency plus performance, 2600-3000 cruise RPM, 8.75 to 10.0 compression ratio , but for me it sounds good, and makes decent power for cruising! Oh and it's got a new TH 350 that is hooked up to my column shift! Thought about bucket seats and a console shifter but then Kayleigh couldn't sit by me!

Factory Options

AC, FM Radio, column shift Automatic Transmission Split front Bench

Mods

SS Cragars, Holley Carb, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, Crane Energizer Cam with .454 lift, disc Brake conversion up front, Hooker Headers, 3" pipes back to flowmasters with 3" exits right before the axle.
