Looks like a solid base. What's your plan?

Something like this, although I'm not sure what colors I want for the interior/exterior yet. Any suggestions?



Thanks!

Between your 34 and this 31, looks like you are going to be very busy over the next couple years.

Hey,
Thanks for the comments!

What are you using as a front/rear axle on your car? I have a MII front and rear, but I was thinking of switching it for a newer corvette front/rear.

Oh yeah, here is a pic of the original engine. It is for sale, if anyone wants it. Low mileage, and, to my knowledge, it has never been re-built.




I wish I could put a 392 Hemi in there, but the chances of me being able to afford that are slim-to-none.

I have a TCI mstg II frontend and a chevy 10 bolt in the rear sitting on Posie springs, mild rebuild 318, with a beefed up 904 tran, I think you got a great car to start with and that engine looks good and you should advertise it in Himmeens ( can't spell) But the old car guys that like original type stuff, mine had a flat 8 in it w/ 35 thou on the engine and trany, I got 2800 for mine, which gave me a good start.

Cragars, you just got to have the Cragars, and push the front axle forward a little.

I will have to try that.

Do you have your ad on hand? Just so I can see the kinds of things to write about the engine/tranny to sell it.

Also, how much do you think I should ask for it? Info is below...

"V6 Engine and Transmission
The timing chain, oil pump, rings and some minor stuff have been replaced. Everything looks good as far as the Carb, Block, Exuast and Distributor. The Transmission has been rebuilt, as well as the Clutch.

The engine has 98086.6 miles on it."

Thanks again for all of your help! It is much appreciated!!

^^^^^^ 38 DeSoto If your looking for a hemi you might try asking around at DeSoto.org Centerline here on the board is a big hemi freak (I said that in a nice way , Bill) too. I don't think he'll part with any though. I think he may be trying to corner the market on them.

I would advertise just what you said and if you have any documentation on any service work with pictures, price wise I don't have any idea, I will say that is your call I advertised for what I got and it took about two and a half months to sell it and the guy that bought it came to my house to pick it up.
I would say yours is worth at least as much, and it is cleaner then mine was with some work having been done on it.
