well its a 327 mill, small journal, forged crank. comp cam (high .4 intake and low .5 exhaust) and crane lifters. the heads are dbl camel hump with crane roller rockers, nothing fancy though. regular edlebrock performer dual plane and a Holley 650 spread bore (although that very Holley is keeping me from driving it since the back bowls acting up).I am most likely gonna build a QuadraJet for it in the next week or so. the msd is a 6tn box and i moved the battery to the trunk to be more, performance oriented i reckon you could say.

I have been busy blocking and priming mine. I am on about my third time now. I want it to be perfectly straight when I paint it. I was a paint and bodyman for 30 years so the paint job and body work is the easy part for me. Sooner or later I'll get around to building a high performance engine and drive train but until I save the money I will have to putt along with the stock 305 that came with the car.

nice man. mines got some rust , but im in high school and workin a crappy job so a mouse motor is all i got. i also got another project nagging at my empty wallet,a 1971 chevelle, factory big block car that i had bought long before my camaro from a man down the road. its currently residing under a cruddy tarp in the driveway. but a 468 that sounds killer, no replacement for displacement is what they say.

Looks like a nice body from what I can see. I always liked the Chevelles and a factory big block should be up there in value. Do you have a cowl induction hood for it?

nah i just got a flat hood for it to keep the water out. I put tubular A arms and the tall camaro spindle conversion, then since when i got it, it was a shell, no running gear my dad helped me put truck arms on in place of the factory four link. lots of fabbed items, but i just hate seeing the run of the mill red with ss stripe 71 an 72's running around. but it will def have to wait til i get out of school. Right now i need to get my carb straight. im thinking of a quadrajet. any opinions, tips, ect?

I've got this 67 250 straight 6. I want to swap in an LS3. Obviously I'll need a new trans, rear end, power steering/brakes etc. Any advise on auto trans and rear combination?

Beautiful car, chevyman! I love butternut yellow. Put a nice overdrive trans in it so you can build the motor strong and still get highway benefits.

You will need to get a new drive shaft. The TH350 has a shorter tail shaft. Just about ready to paint mine.
