The motor is a '73 350 block with a 307 crank which yields a 327... a destroked 350!

Been making progress! The car already has discs on front but the plumbing was really funky & I really didn't want to use the stock booster & master so I ordered a 7" booster/master for a Chevy II & that sucker *barely* fit in the space... I lucked out! Will also run new brake lines to all 4 corners.

I'm working on cleaning & respraying the engine compartment black! The orange motor sitting inside a black compartment is gonna really look good IMO!!!

Also the transmission shop called & said my 700R4 is ready!

Onward & upward!!!

Looking Good BoB!

Thought I'd throw this out there.... when I was a kid my mom had a 66 Rambler Ambassador DPL. It was a pretty classy car, had a 327 in it but not a GM 327 an it as pretty quick. Yikes..... that was 50 years ago!

Spending today cleaning up the engine bay & spraying it black. I have the brake booster/master mocked up & only need to make the pushrod & set up the brake pedal! Then on to re-plumbing all the brake lines! Going to pick the tranny up early next week. Once I get the brakes done I'll start mocking up the engine/tranny/tranny mount/driveshaft! Then on to wiring! I like to have a path forward & this is it so far! Chicken soup for lunch & a cup of java & back to work! Hopefully I can get the bulk of this done before it starts getting cold... I hate the cold!

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Im gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
