Complete early 283 Hi-Po Chevrolet V8 motor and TH350 trans. This is a really good running motor and trans that is super smooth and tight and very fast. The motor is a rare 1958-1962, High performance 315HP model. It was purchased by the Kennedy brothers in Pomona, California about 4 years ago and was pulled from a local Deuce 5 window where it had been sitting since the 60's. After being stripped and inspected and finding it was good condition low mileage engine the heads were rebuilt for good measure, full set of gaskets were installed as well as a new Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock carb, chrome alternator, starter, water pump, plugs, wires, distributor cap, points etc, before being painted orange. I have maybe done 600 miles since all this work done and it has never skipped a beat and does not leak or burn oil. it has great oil pressure, 40-45 when cold and 25-30 when hot. The trans was also a low mileage item and fitted with a new high stall converter, kick down linkage and an old chrome B&M shifter and it works great and shifts good. The 4 barrel air cleaner is a rare old aluminum Nicson marine style unit. The headers are old modified tube style and were on this very coupe since 1964. The aluminum valve covers are vintage 60's finned Corvette. I even have the original cut down fan for the front pulley! I have decided to put an early Cad motor and manual trans in my coupe so that is the reason this good running set up is up for grabs. I will be pulling it all out as one thing, so this really is a bolt in a car and go deal!! It's all still in my car so if you are interested you can check it out, hear it and ride in the car! It is located in Hollywood, California is local pick up only. $1500.00 firm. firstname.lastname@example.org The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.
We at Born-Free couldn't be more stoked with the Show Class Magazine People's Champ contest now in its third year. While we try to take note of who is building what and try to find as much new blood and talent to be our Invited Builders Each year we just can't be everywhere or know everyone which is where the People's Champ comes in!
Basically if you've always wanted to be or wondered what it takes to be an Invited Builder you have your chance to show your skills in a contest that gets narrowed down to a final few and the night before Born-Free 7 the winner will be picked and welcomed into our group of Invited Builders at the show. But there is a lot of hope for those that don't "win" as we have poached many talented guys that got voted out along the way and welcomed them into our fold.
So what are you waiting for??? The deadline to enter is December 1, 2014 so follow the directions here and see what happens.
