Possible 66 L78 originally?

Car has a lot of things wrong, but I wonder if the tach is original it has gauge package also. Atlanta car, 3E build. Build sheet may be under the gas tank. I thought someone may want to see this ad.

Re: Possible 66 L78 originally?

with no mention of any numbers on the engine my guess this was just built like you see it. 10 to 1 odds its a 454 block

it appears to have "early" heads (65/66/67), as there is no temp sender hole on the driver's side head...

Transmission is not original?

Looks like the Speedo cable on the driver's side...

All the pulleys are incorrect for an L78.

Hard to tell... Doesn't look like it has the larger, 4 row radiator?

Once you go RAT, you never go back...
