In 2016 we purchased a roller from the Turkey Rod Run in Daytona, Florida. I used to live nearby. When we moved, my SS came with us. Rebuilt '72 350 bored 80 over, TH200C transmission from a donor car. Original shifter was scavenged prior to my purchase so I have installed a QuickSilver shifter. Lots of new parts. I hope to add photo's soon. Not going to be a full restore, we want a cruiser. Looking to network locally and online for resources. Thanks in advance for being a resource of accumulated knowledge.... I feel it is one of the most valuable things you can give to another. I hope to be able to do my part as well. - Dean

Thanks for the welcome.

Photo of when we found her at the Turkey Rod Run in 2016 and the engine we eventually installed, Unfortunately, she has been waiting for a minute to be finished... and she needs some minor body rust repairs but she runs and drives. I am currently researching how to get the lockup converter working ... I have the wiring from the donor car an MC-LS, but no computer and this is something I have not done before. Used to working with TH350 transmissions... just connect a vacuum line and go.... past project was a 73 Formula Firebird 30 years ago.
