Originally a 2bbl standard Model with a center counsel and Factory air.
Engine-289 cid bored .30 over. The engine was COMPLETELY disassembled and rebuilt. Has about 100 miles on it since rebuild which consisted of new main, rod and cam bearings. New oil pump, all new gaskets and seals, New timing chain, rebuilt water pump. Cam Shaft from Summit Racing (SUM-CCRN223), The Heads were rebuilt with new Hydraulic lifters, springs and valve seals. The Heads and block were boiled to clean and deck surfaces were checked for level and all OK. The exhaust port Air Pump bosses were ground down to give more breathing. Cooling hoses are Goodyear Hi-Milers,
There is a 4 bbl aluminum intake and a Edlebrock 600 CFM 1406 squarebore Carb with Electric Choke.
Distributor is a factory OEM with a Pertronix Ignitor Electronic Ignition conversion and a Petronix 40,000 volt Flame-Thrower Coil.
New Rebuilt Alternator.
The Transmission- the transmission is a ‘70-up C-4 3 speed auto bought from TCI Performance Transmissions. (Street Fighter Transmission; '70-'82 C4) with a ‘H’ code Shift Servo.
Also a NEW C4 Sizzler Torque Converter which is 400rpm stall over stock, great for a street cruiser.
There is about $1300.00 in the transmission alone. Price it yourself on the TCI website.
