1980 monte 406 SBC

Hey guys, I was on my way to the doc earlier and I passed a car forsale. It was a 1980 monte carlo not SS. It had a 406 SBC in it, TH400. I chech the #'s to be sure and the pan shape on the tranny.

The guy told me it It had coated hyperutectic pistons not forged, and said he wasn't sure about all the motor specs cuz he has someone else build all his motors for him. He did have quick release valve covers and hit had 461 camel hump heads on it. He said there had been some performance work done to the heads but was not sure what. He says the TH400 has a TCI race kit (clutches, full manual valve body, modulator gone, stage 3 kit) full spool rear end 456 gears He wasn't sure what brand though. strange axels.

He says he has all the info at home in a folder, But the car was at his shop which was where I talked to him at. Car comes with monster Tach w/ light. tras brake, 2 sets hoosier slicks 1 sets used. He showed me some 1/8 mile ET slips and the slowest one was a 7.42, but this was with a dominator 850 carb. He claims someone stole the dominator off the car sittin at his shop at night while he was at home. so he just has a eddie performer 750 on it now. It will start and run decent, but the carb on it he says is why its running kinda rough..... He has 2500 firm on it, you guys think its worth it, If he can provide this mystery folder to me??? I just think 2500 for a 7.40 car is a little too good..... is it?? the body is straight but desperately needs paint
