I have been collecting parts since last April. Car is a super clean 83 calias 65k miles all stock. Plans are quick performance 9 inch. Olds 355 with sniper 2. Turbo 350 trans. Motor is done 355 flat top pistons. Baby roller cam. Heads are #8 with 455 valves. These heads were worked on by Batten years ago when his shop was in Detroit area. Compression is about 10.1. Should be 350ish hp. Not building a race car just a cruiser.

Rear end in car. Pulled the tank got it ready for the fuel pump. Still can't believe how clean this car is. Underhood prepped for engine. Got my new steering gear box in.
