I might put a stroker kit in the truck I have in the spring, they are relatively cheap(less than $1000).

I want to build a 383 for my wagon, It needs some oomph, its got a tired small block in her right now. and runs ok.

but I need to fix some rust and replace the suspension which is worn out. body roll, if it wasnt for the lap belt, I'd have ended up in the passenger seat.

That's a good lookin car and very nice rims! I would use that as my race track road trip car, My buddies and I would load up in that every weekend and hit the tracks, I wouldn't race it but, it's a great road trip car.

thank you kindly.

Im making this car into a reliable DD. she is a bit rough around the edges as well as a low option no frills car, so I feel no qualms about modifying it. due to it being a Bel-Air (the low end model) im suprised it didnt end up as a derby car

i think it has a 327 under the hood (never found the block codes) it was a powerglide, that I replaced with a 700r4, it has Hedman Hedders, a new 2.5 inch exhaust, an HEI distributor and factory power steering. no A/C, no power options, drum brakes all around.

Yea, that car is awesome. I would put a new stock 250 / 300hp crate engine in it, they're pretty cheap....$2500 and vintage AC system in it. Perfect road trip car....i'm jealous! A buddy of mine many years ago had one of these but, a 4 door sedan and he installed a 80"s Cadillac electric bench seat in it and that made all the difference in the world.

Very nice and definitely the better choice over the 6 cylinder fastback. How much was that ride?

Nice! It's a fleetside too, so it's even better. It's also red, just like mine.
