History
Rebuilt from ground up........Numbers matching 396 Muncie 4 speed........Built by a man out of Muskogee, Ok.......He passed away before he was completely finished....car was 99% complete when I purchased her.......she's quite a gem !
Man has this story changed! I've been enrolled in Muscle Car University for at over a year now........I've learned much ! However the price of admission has been very steep ! LOL ! My 99% complete resto was not so complete ! Everything to the "Eye" was VERY Sharp ! Everything under her skin was not so much ! Long Story Short she now has >500 HP Custom 454......new Clutch......Newly rebuilt 12 Bolt w 3.73 Eaton........all new shocks.........all new springs......all new front tie rods/control arms/ steering component's......all new cooling system w electric fans and Big Griffin Aluminum ...Power Steering ..Power Disc Brakes...New Brake lines..fixed Brakes from dragging..And I've left off lot's of blood sweat and tears......Made a $7000 attempt to save her numbers match 396 to no avail (still have 396) Upper end oiling issues common to that engine....added the groove to cam journal !!!!!! thought I had it !!!!!! Might have worked finding 66 dist......didn't want to throw more money at problem child........I know her now like the back of my hand ! It's bad when it gets easier to pull motor !
