Photo of a 1985 Chevrolet El Camino (Maria)


its my baby i yanked the engine in the begining of last summer before the car was even mine. it was my brothers for about three years. we decided to park it one day (because the rear brake line rotted out) and tear it apart. by the end of the summer i bought the pile of parts off him for about $600. i began putting the front clip back on and asembling the engine and what not. the picture posted is of the car before i bought it, iwill post new ones soon!


rebuilt 305, 4bbl, flat top pistons, etc. but no more, the engine is in the process of a major transformation. performance parts will take the place of all the stock stuff. I WILL make this little engine make power.pics of the build will be posted soon. next winter the engine will become better w/ a 340 stroker kit.
I soon relized my plan would fail my new plan is a cheap rebuild on my free 350 and hopefully make more than 300hp. sounds reasonable.
