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.
I didn't catch the name of this Panhead if it had one, and the pictures didn't come out that good, it was kinda in the sun, but still in the shande and it was parked in dirt so everyone walking around it gave it a layer of dust, but I still love the lines/molding and artwork on it.
In one of these tubes a "golden ticket" will be placed and the whole batched mixed up before any address label is attached. All tubes will be mailed out simultaneously on the same day via USPS priority mail.
What does the golden ticket get you? It gets you this Lowbrow Customs Peanut Tank and Ribbed Fender that I have painted with a tangerine "pebbeled" Murano Pearl base and a modern type yellow pearl kabuki scallop design.
This is a brand new tank and fender folks, with a brand new paintjob!
(and if you don't like the paintjob, and sandblast it, I wont be offended, this is still a hell of a deal for a brand new tank and fender!)
But wait there's more, "a sorry bud, nice try" voucher will be placed in one more tube that will be good for a t-shirt and one of our "hood-lite" cast aluminum license plate and tail-light bracket.
Now you gotta be asking yourself, whats the deal?
The deal is $20.00 for one tubed poster shipped in the USA and perhaps this tank and fender will be yours!
(that's like 1% of the real cost of a decent paintjob!)
However, this offer is good until next Monday July 28th. All sales will stop at midnight and all tubed posters will be shipped by noon on Tuesday July 29th.
Guru Mike had his hands the dirtiest in the Sportster's Ruin build and it was only fitting that he gave the unveiling announcement over it's vision with a huge thanks to his wife Lisa for letting us continually take him away to toil away in the garage late into the night...
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Gasser Lounge and supported the Gasser Lounge / Lady Hump / Sailor Jerry "Sportster's Ruin" bike unveiling and helped raise over $1,000.00 donated to helping veterans / charity at Johnny's Saloon in Huntington Beach, U.S.A.!
