Well, I am looking at being able to do all but the paint also. Motor I can do some of the work, but not the machining etc. I was guessing it would run 15~20K plus the 4 to buy it.

Did anyone notice this motor on ebay?

Cool

What's your (new) project?
How much for your 60? I know you & I chatted once about headers. How close does that one on the left get to the strg/gear?
I might put headers on mine at some point (next year) Maybe an Edelbrock intake.

I'm leaning more & more towards mild street rode theme here.
Nothing too wild. Just a few more ponies and different wheels. A couple of minor touches.

On the other note, these guys are on the money (literally). Get that J-Code Conv. Just plan on spend ing some $$$$$$
I'd LOVE to have a 430 car!!!! HT . . . SR . . . Conv . . . Whatever. Those motors were bada__ !!!!

[quote=byersmtrco;17965]What's your (new) project?......... We might do a Mustang, Cougar or Torino...
How much for your 60?....... I would like to get $15K, I have a neighbor that has been kicking it around, We'll see... I know you & I chatted once about headers. How close does that one on the left get to the strg/gear?....... I know that the picture made it look real close, but it has not been any problem...
I might put headers on mine at some point (next year)....... The headers give the finishing touch for the shock appeal. I had the muffler shop install them when they put in the new exhaust system. I was glad I did... Maybe an Edelbrock intake.......I have an Edelbrock Performer with the Holley Avenger 670 CFM. It is a pretty nice combo and really emphisises the enhanced torque power band...

Cool

Good info . . . Thank's !!!

That Holley is a good carb. I have the Edelbrock on there. Prob keep that . . . for now. It was dialed perfect on my old motor. It's about 90 % there on this one. Way more vacuum and diff cam profile. I need to check timing and all that too. It runs pretty good though. Not perfect.

I just want to juice it up a little. We'll see. I'll do a little more homework. I only want to do this ONCE. Not a continuing saga (like my brakes and swaybars)
Well worth it though. It's actually a VERY nice and fun car to drive now. It turns . . . It stops. Something I never thought I'd hear myself say about a 60 TBird. It will get out and fly the mail too.

Thanks again for your info. Sorry to see you sell your TB.
Keep in touch !!!

JB
