so 7 years later the lottery motor and transmission is getting replaced.

I bought a 383 stroked small block this week. 700r4 will be getting rebuilt and all the tricks soon.

New stereo components going in soon and best of all new interior going in this winter hopefully

pics soon! =D>

new engine is in this week and now we are making new accessory brackets and getting all the wiring and brackets built. New disc brakes and modern brake master cylinder installed. hopefully driving by the first week of December before the car goes to upholstery.
