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.

Cheapo Chopoff Raffle, Dinner, & Swimming Hole'n (8/10)


You know it's a party when you're winning Ghettotooth Tori halter tops and walking the runway!















Good times, without a doubt, one of the best campouts the PNW has ever seen... of course it's the only one I've ever attended (in the PNW), but I'll go ahead and stake that claim. Feel free to disagree, but you've only got yourself to blame if you miss next years CHEAPO CHOPOFF!



The Moto Collective 4th Friday - August 2015 - Part 2

Here are some photos of The Moto Collective's shop.  I love their setup.

The building is broken into stalls specific to each person in the group.  They include a lift and a workbench.  There are also a lot of tools shared by the group.

Here you can see CB Builds' space where he is building copper mufflers for sale here.  This guy ripped it up at Moto Mania and it was really fun to watch.

Outside there is ample parking for people to show up and hang out.  There was a small fire pit too.

Inside a DJ was playing music and a keg (donations accepted) kept everyone hydrated.

The moonrise over the shop was beautiful but photos don't do it justice.

If you missed it, I highly recommend checking out The Moto Collective next 4th Friday bike night on 9/25.

On the way home, I snapped a few photos in front of the Lowry Avenue Bridge.  You can even see the ferris wheel at Betty Danger's in the background.

The Moto Collective 4th Friday - August 2015 - Part 1

The Moto Collective started up their own bike night the 4th Friday of each month.  I missed the first one last month but was able to make it last night.  It's fun to check out all the work going on inside their shop and they even had a DJ and a keg.  What more could you ask for?  Here are some of the bikes that showed up including a vintage Ducati...

...and a newer 2013 Triumph:

I finally met Roach Cliff!

Naked Goldwing:

KTM:

Pair of Hondas:

Brett's Sporty:

This bike is sensory overload and I think quite a few things have been added to it since the last time I've seen it:

Photos from inside the shop are next!
