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. email@example.com The original chopped down Deuce grille shell & insert, custom made radiator and electric fan will also be available soon if anyone is interested.
So great to see so many friends and new friends come together for a good cause. Thanks again to 24cycles.com for putting this together last Saturday and making Christmas just a little better for some kids who weren't expecting the generosity of strangers. Merry Christmas!

Dice issue 59, The Biltwell issue, is nearly upon us and to celebrate we asked the Biltwell boys to design and manufacture 50 items that we can sell as limited editions with this issue. Bill had been wanting to do a small-scale traditional seabag, but with a couple extra features like Molle webbing that would be easy to attach to just about any sissy bar. He sketched up the dimensions, picked up a couple full-size seabags and headed to Duane Ballard's where he built the first prototype. That bag got a little six hundred or so mile shakedown and Bill learned a few things and made some modifications. Their vest guy in Los Angeles custom-dyed a lot of 100% cotton 18 oz. duck canvas and stitched 'em up. Bill and McGoo hand tied the closures and installed the brass snap links. The finished bags were then dashed over to their screen printer where the underside of each bag's lid got a little artwork and serial number added. The volume of most bags or luggage is usually measured in litres, but we thought it would be more fitting to use cans of beer since more of our customers would probably identify with that. This bag fits 36 Coors originals perfectly, hence the name EXFIL-36. Got a little extra stuff? clip it on to the Molle straps on the side or add modular ammo pouches, etc. This bag is only available with DicE issue #59 and will go on sale in our online store on Monday morning, December 22nd at 9am PST (California time). Once we sell those 50 bags that's it, there will be no more. All successful purchases will be shipped on Monday December 29th.
