So I just picked up a new project. Bought this car last week, and this past sat tore the fenders core support all the wiring. The car had a 305 block that ran like a dog 700r4 tranny. I will be taking this all out and replacing it with either a 383 or LS power and 6 speed I hope. The car lucky has no rust only 2 small places so I got lucky.. Check out those valve covers haha

You should definitely plan the build around the valve covers!!!

Congrats on the project! Keep us updated....oh, and we'll help you spend your money!!

Go with a LSx motor!! Even if it's carbed for awhile it's a move in the right direction!!

That's what I was thinking as well. Go with the LSX motor!!! Although a nice 383 stroker all done up is a nice motor as well.
Body looks to be in pretty good condition.
GOOD LUCK!!!

If you do carbed, will it be a 383 like you mentioned earlier? That would be NICE!!! Nice little engines for the Camaros.
GOOD LUCK!

I was supposed to go look at that car last week. Is your first post a typo? His ad said it had a 350 in it. Good start.

No he had no clue about the car We bought it 2 weeks back. I looked up the block numbers it said it was a 305 2 bolt main from 1978-79. It ran like crap too.
