For $450.00?

There's "Really" not that much available in my area.Not to mention I can make payments on it comfortably,& the guy will deliver it to my door!!!
(if need be)

In fact it is the first,& only Motor/Tranny Combo I have seen for sale period!

The closest thing I have found is a Complete Old 350SBC,
for the same price with 'NO TRANSMISSION" just the motor.

Since it's a 3.8 that tells me "IT WILL DROP RIGHT IN TO MY CUTLASS WITHOUT A FUSS" since thats exactly whats already in it.

Thats enough to tell me it's what I need to get.

Remember it's NOT "My Project Car" so it does'nt have to have
GOBS of power.

Being a 3.8 I will not only have a Spare Tranny,but a spare motor as well!!!

Last but not least,I believe it's already been tricked,& I will have ample time to Trick the one I take out as well,(if the new one isn't of course).

It's as clean as a Whistle to Boot,absolutely no Grease,Grim,or oil any where on it just dust from where It's been sitting,& if you cleaned that off I'm Fairly Certain it would look "BRAND SPANKIN NEW"!!!

The guy told me today that the people who sold the El Camino to him didn't even have it bolted in yet.

Judging by that,and the "INCREDIBLE CLEANLINESS" of the Motor,& Tranny
I would not be surprised in the least if it were Rebuilt,Tricked Out,& NEVER EVEN DRIVEN.(would'nt that be something)

I don't know bout you Bro,but for me that is simply WAY to many pluses to overlook,& if it has been Tricked then I just got myself the BONUS plan.

I DEFIANTLY DIG IT,& I'M GETTIN IT!

So the only question is since it's essentially a 305 - #2 Cylinders will 305 parts work in it?

I would also like to know where on the net you hunted down the,
casting#'s? So I can mark it,& use it myself for future reference.
(maybe even helping someone else out)

Thanks For Helping me out M&M,
you set me Straight when no one else could,or would.

MU CO GRASS SEEUS Me AMIGO! Mu Co Grass Seeus
(bad spanish fully intended)

P.S. What do you think woud be a GOOD Carb to put on this Motor?
