Some pics of it, parked in a a garage in 1977, Engine is stuck but is all numbers matching drivetrain and as you can see pretty correct. 400, TH400.

Enjoy

Mike, how are you ever going to get the Bonnevilles fixed up, if you keep on letting these Grand Prixs follow you home.

You know, My WIFE keeps asking that same question!


I couldn't turn this one down, we'll leave it at that! An engine and brakes and I've no doubt this one will be a driver!

Looks like a winner Mike! I picked up another one myself the week before POSI Run. Had to let got of the 70 Lemans Convert to get it, but will be worth it in the long run. Guess I should update my avatar...

Doug, I had heard that and wondered why you were driving the 'vert that night.

If this one would've come loose I've driven it down, Look for it next year!

Picked one up before I officially sold the other and finishing some stuff on the other before I sell it. The Lemans should be gone tomorrow. Then work can begin on the GTO.:rolleyes:

4 spd car?

IT's hard to beat a 4spd 'vert!

Drop me some pics when you get a chance

Dragging this back up as I pulled the engine today. It's still locked up tighter than a frog's ass after sitting all winter with PB blaster in the cyls and the crankase filled with oil and kerosene.

Gonna shove the engine out of my 68 bird 'vert in it for now, not going to bother with cleaning the engine compartment up until the OE engine goes back in.

Found some interesting ink stamps gave up a lot of skin, gained some grease, ans am one step closer to having another driver for this year.
