283 Sbc

A friend of mine took a 1964 283 that was running great out to put in a BBC and left it out in the rain.I saw it the other day and asked about it and he gave it to me.It is a 2BBL complete with ram horn exhaust. New Interiors helped me go pick it up yesterday .When we got it home we pulled the plugs,Only 1 was wet,he turned it over for me and the water came out of only that one cyl.The water was black meaning it had not rusted yet so we filled the cylinders with oil and turned it over a couple times.Seems to be fine.Now we have a great rat rod engine for our next project.I feel lucky,think I will go buy a lottery ticket.
