Man I’ve seen some of the build threads in here.. They are extreme! This thread will probably be bit boring compared to those.

Not at all new to Gbodys but planning on keeping this one carbed.. Definitely new to that. Some recent pics

IMO if you are going to run a carb I would run your feed line to a regulator that is in front of the carb and then flip your fuel line around, that way you are not fighting G force to get it in the carb and then you can also run higher pressure to the regulator.

Not reusing the factory rear seats and I’m not even sure what the fronts came out of. Do they look familiar to any one?

Center console is beat but I’m going to try to save it

Headliner also was wasted so I removed it. I want to Utilize the factory console so I had to make a plate to raise the shifter that I plan on using. Trans is reverse manual so

Man are those rad hoses are tiny, obviously the LS are easy to cool. Sucks that so much leaks on this car, I imagine the floor is toast. Obviously they did the LS swap as cheaply as possible, big Holley carb and factory exhaust manifolds. I assume a reverse manual TH350?
