    Looks like the kind of thing you could yank at a self service salvage place and pay about $100 for.

    Wow, that looks like a fucking beast. Is your camero caged yet? You think you will be able to drive it on the street after this?

    Owner swears that his wife drove it as a DD and that there were no problems with it or any ticks, knocks, leaks, or losses of any oil in any way. Plus the recent tune-up is a plus as well. Saves me $100 or so in plugs, wires, cap, and rotor.

    All she needs is a new paint job, an Edelbrock RPM intake (guy I know has one for $75) and I need to finish that 600cfm Edelbrock carburetor Ive been rebuilding

    :ugh:

    not all 350 chevys have 400hp/400ftlbs tq.

    The mid 70's to early 80's were the worst year for engines. 350's could have as low as 140hp and 240ft/lbs tq. That one looks stock exccept for chrome valve covers and lid.

    Better than the quadrajunk thats on it now

    If I get a Comp Xtreme cam and vortec heads later on, with a 750 cfm carb, it could be a pretty formidable engine. Maybe SpeedPro Hyp. psitons
