Custom Builds – Bringing Your Dreams To Reality

Making This 350 Look The Part

After seeing pictures of the motors we have worked on, a new customer decided to give us a shot at making this ugly 1983 SBC into something he would be proud to use.  This motor might not of looked like much but it was running great and was super clean inside when we cracked it open so the decision was made to just detail it without doing a total rebuild.    The 350 / 700R4 combo is headed for a new home in a killer 1950 Chevy long bed slammed to the ground with some great patina.  We convinced him to dump the HEI ignition and go with a new cast Pertonix distributor.  An older Edelbrock intake I had sitting around with a new Edelbrock 1406 will motivate this motor a lot more than the old setup.  All the gaskets and hardware were replaced and now this motor should be ready to run for years to come.
