the seller is stating a lot of info about the engine and truck built

The truck COULD have everything he states it does.......but as we all know sometimes the equipment list gets embellished a little. Ask the seller for receipts for the parts and all work done. Also ask who did the machine work, if the seller balks at ANY of this.....see ya!!

Had a guy in '78/79 that bought a blown 355 sbc, supposedly had all the good forged stuff and built by Joe Mondello's shop including a set of Joe's ported heads. Turned out it was a stock Target Master engine with a 6-71 on it.....buyer beware!!

It is possible, 90% of what you posted has nothing to do with how much HP the engine is capable of.

Static c.r.? Cam specs? What differential? Who built the trans?

Like 327 says, show me receipts, pictures, spec sheets. Keep in mind there are some things you can't verify, the internals.

Most of the time you can tell a lot by how the thing looks. If everything is pristine and neat and doesn't look like he cheaped out anywhere then it probably is pristine, and neat, and he didn't cheap out anywhere.

for the engine, you can ask all of the details, and those are nice if he remembers them (I can't always remember every detail of all the stuff i built), but at 700hp he will be able to provide a dyno sheet, chassis or engine dyno. You don't stumble upon a 700hp combination and not have the thing tuned properly.

I'd call bull on this one. Big Al gets about 11g for 600+ hp. You are talking about a race motor on the street. Can you let it sit in gear and idle untouched for 45 min in 95 deg heat with the AC on?? A local guy does E-85 carbs and has about 700 hp in his 383. It runs very well and is as close to a daily driver as you can get. Only problem is where do you find E-85 out in the country back roads??

Next the heads are bowtie?? What you will need something aluminum that breathes very well supercharged for this kind of hp.

Underdriven 9%, give me a break, maybe 6-7 # boost.
Better have him run it on the dyno for you.

327nut has a good point

Buyer beware
