Been awhile

I've almost got the loan paid off, and will soon be able too start doing some mods to the 78 El Camino. Just wanted too ask your opinions on my plans. I'm going too get rid of the 305, TH350, and stock rearend gears. My plans include a slightly built 427 big block, 700r4, and a posi rearend with 3.73 gears. Doesn't need too be the fastest car on the road, just want a fun too drive street machine. What do you all think of the power-train plans for the 78 El Camino ??

Yes, I will have too take another loan too build the 427, but that's okay. I plan on building it over the next 5 to 10 years. I'm in no hurry. It's been sitting in the driveway for a couple years already, so it can sit in a garage/barn for a while after I move. (Note; hope too rent/buy a old farm house outside the Omaha, Ne. area this summer.)
