For Sale: 1958-62 Early 283 Chevy Engine & TH350 trans. Ready To Run!

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.
The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.

"This past month has been a wild ride. We picked up the entire company and moved it 1500 miles north to Wisconsin. Our new warehouse gives us ample room to expand and grow in the coming years. We thank everyone for their patience while we made our transition. The dust has settled and we are back to business as usual. Orders will be processed and shipped the same business day!"- Zach

This is for all you Sportster, Dyna and stocker fans that don't want to change the tail light setup you already have but want to get rid of that crappy plastic side mount. This will relocate your license plate to a slick low pro style and mount either vertically or horizontally off the lower shock bolt.

Perfect to replace the HD plastic side mounts on Sportsters, Dynas and other models. Will fit any bike with a shock rear suspension
