73 trans am project
« on: September 16, 2015, 08:43:33 PM »
This poor gir has 33k actual miles and its a numbers up car.
Sadly in 1982 in went into body shop 1 and eventually #2 never to be finished. Finally in 2010 it was left outside to rust in piece. Until I saved it.

I hated my 301, wasn't even available in that year. Do a Pontiac 350/400/456.

I have the numbers up 455. No point in using a power house 301!

Use a Pontiac 455. It will fit while the buick will need custom mounts
