71 nova 307 with a th350 tranny. was given this car for a first car. so far I have put about 700 into it.
My plans for it is a top end build for it and eventually a turbo charger :devil: I am hoping to spend under 2k for the motor build (including the turbo set up):yes:
in 1978 bought a 275hp 327 for 50.00, a complete gasket set for 25.00, tore it gown to the short block, spent another 5.00 in quarters at the car wash.. installed a old bbc oil pump and pickup.... a old troker intake.. some old aluminum valve covers.. picked up a good AVS at the salvage yard for a 1.00, carb rebuild kit 5.00....
stuck it in a 1968 elcamino I picked up for 300 ... never turned a time on it.... sold it for 1200.00
