302 - 8 cylinder
  • Just picked this one up for a street/strip car. Already set-up how I want it with a 302, headers and 2-1/2" exhaust with Flowmasters, 3.73 LSD rear gears. Has a bit of a valve noise but is otherwise mostly flawless aside from some minor rust holes. Came with new carpet which I installed the first night I had it along with my cloth race seats from a Cutlass I had.

    Plans for the future:
    -Aluminum intake and 4-barrel Holley off my '70 F-100 which is getting a 360 soon; may just swap the whole motor, haven't decided yet.
    -It will get a cam but have not decided which one yet, leaning towards a Comp Cams 268H-10 grind.
    -Paint someday, at least to get it all in one color, not a priority yet.
    -Fiberglass Grabber hood since the stock hood has rust holes in the front.
    -Wheels - something aluminum, not a fan of the chipping chrome wheels.
    -Tires - Looking at some M/T Sportsman.

    And I am sure there is much more to come.
