It feels like more than 3 1/2 yrs. Getting too old to be climbing under these things.

The outside was in good shape. I replaced the wheels and tires, the exhaust system, some of the wiring, replaced the radiator and shroud had the motor rebuilt along with the tranny. It has the original 283 but now is bored 60 over with trickflow heads,cam lifters, pushrods with roller rockers, new intake manifold and edelbrock carburetor. Wheels andtires are 205x50x17.

looks like a power glide? what aluminum heads are on it? Stock 308 rear end? does it have any low end torque? My Nova has a 283 60 over also. I cant to much off the line even with a 2500 rpm stall torque convertor (should have been 3000-3500) I have the power pack heads still on mine --- the heads were ported and polished some.

The heads are super23, 1.94/ 1.50.its a mild cam, nothing radical, need the vacuum. It has the stock rearend. The alternator is mounted low on the driver's side. Wouldn't fit up high once the heads were installed.
