Plastic Fantastic 2
 
2 years - that is number of years I can go without a C3.

ut oh, there's an anti-theft device there

My friend has a scoop... mine is bigger (where the 'ew' came from)
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

the motor and trans don't come with it, but it comes with its stock motor (a 350) and trans (a ST-10). This motor sounds good, very, very good. It's a 400 with the larger B&M blower (177 iirc)....

Plans? Expectations will be fairly high after the Toyota! Just kidding, looks like a great start no matter what you do.

picked up some of the 'spare' parts.
this motor was rattling pretty good, however, it's a 4 bolt main 350 so useful for something

and the transmission
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

a nice surprise 882 2.02 heads, screw in studs, light porting
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

and an airgap intake, edelbrock valve colvers, full roller rockers.

it also came with a removable cross member (manual cars don't have removable cross members).

what's cool about the motor parts is that someone spent some time and money on the car

Oops, I didn't mention. I still have the custom images flares, so those are going on.

I have a 6.0 LS motor currently in a denali so that's going in probably with some turbos that are sitting on a shelf that will go into side pipes.

Transmission will probably be the Super T-10, but if a 5 or 6 speed fell into my lap (which will hold the power) - that would be the other choice.

My current thought is put a C4 suspension under it, and I have the parts for a guldstrand rear. That said, I may simply mix and match the two generations...

Fetching day.
but first.... yep, there's 3 broken teeth in that ST-10

I just replaced the PW switches on my '72 console, with switches I picked out of a junkyard some 30? years ago....they are marked LOCK on them, from a car with electric door locks....just to be different...and mess with minds.....

:smash::eek:

under carriage shots
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]
lots of leaks

I wonder what he hit....
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

the exhaust is also oval
[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...]

bright side is they did a great job of protecting the underbody.... and I won't be using it anyway, so it's all good.

it really seems silly to me that the area under the cabin isn't cross braced..... so that is one of those things I'll add to this car.

mrvette 02-16-2017 01:39 PM

IMO, the part of that frame to be concerned with is the rear side rails, right around and just forward of where the trailing arms bolt in.....famous rust area....:shocking::crap: kind of strange all that rust on the front cross member, must have had a leaking water pump for quite a while....

SuperBuickGuy 02-18-2017 05:02 PM

there's nothing but a slight surface rust in all the places that the engine oil didn't leak on ... :gurney:

rtj 02-19-2017 01:03 PM

I see talk of an import engine for this on CF. Baiting the purists over there?
