About

I recently rescued this long forgotten piece of American Muscle from the woods, loaded on the rollback and delivered to my front door for $600. Its pretty much all original, Golden Brown with White painted top, bench seat with column shift. Its got some rot in the quarters that was "repaired" years ago and will need to be fixed again. I am throwing a hot .030 over 396 together and have plans of putting this car on the street by the end of winter, with bodywork to follow in the spring. My moto..."Go B4 Show" or as my pappy always says, "Chrome don't getcha Home".

Specs

For now: 350ci 4bbl, TH350 trans, 10 bolt rear.

To come: 402ci BBC with Edelbrock Torker II single plane intake, Holley 750 double pumper, Lunati Bracket Master II 292 hyd. cam, stainless steel roller rockers from Skip White Performance, forged rods, Keith Black hypereutectic pistons, steel crankshaft, 7qt. drag pan. TH350 trans with 2000 stall converter, shift kit and performance clutch packs, 10 bolt rear with Detroit Posi unit.

Mods

TBD....most likely a drop kit and brake upgrades from CPP. Oh and some wheels too, 14 inch 1978 Nova rallys just wont cut it.
