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.

Big Twin Stroker Plates


I needed these for a couple motors that are coming together. New stroker length cylinders were way to expensive. We decided instead, to approach it the old fashioned way with stroker plates. My buddy Jarad did me a solid and was willing to draw them up and cut them for me at his shop. They're absolutely spot on. Available in both .040 and .080 thickness for 93" or 96" builds. Im selling a few more on the website for just $39.95 to collect some money for Jarad and to begin a larger future run. If you're considering big bore stroker cylinders, maybe reconsider these plates and a set of stock height cylinders instead. You'll save hundreds and the plates are practically invisible when sandwiched between gaskets.

Show Details

McHenry Cty Fairgrounds are older and have nice trees and buildings and sheep/dairy barns we can use.  Tin Butchers will be doing the swap meet and members of certain car clubs in the Chicagoland area have all agreed to come out and support the show.

What will make this event different from just any other show will be the entry criteria - no silly modern wheels - no billet. This is a pre '65 show... there will be a "friends" area just like they have at the Roadster show in CA every year... this will be a section for the billet cars or muscle - it will be right outside the entry way for the qualifying cars.  So even if your car is too new - you can still come out and enjoy the day and be a part of the Invasion - this area for the Chevelles and such will NOT be in the normal spectator lot - it will be completely separate.

We will be getting some great music for the entire weekend.

We will have buildings at our disposal - all are very close to each other and vendors and invited show cars/kustoms will be inside the buildings. We have room for 18-24 cars on the inside and probably have about 20-30 spots for indoor vendors.  One of the buildings will have an indoor theater showcasing vintage drags, stock cars, and other movie classics from back in the day.

Another aspect of the show that will be different from most other shows will be the DIY Stunt Show.  This will give drivers the opportunity to "hit the pit". A jazzed up term for an area where crazy cats can do powerslides or burn outs or donuts... one at a time and in a safe area that will have grandstand so that people can cheer the drivers on.

Pin up parade will be sponsored by Peek A Boo Pin Ups and run by women - other sponsors will be named very soon - stay tuned!

Harley Davidson is our major sponsor! Ol Skool Rodz and Car Kulture Deluxe are also sponsors - go buy the magazines!!!! 

Please understand this is a fund raiser for the Helping Hannah's Heart Foundation. Details at 

We hope that we can include YOU as someone that will come out and support the show... The Iron Invasion descends on Woodstock IL October 4, 2014. Rain or Shine.
