Default '69 Buick Wildcat

A friend of my dads who lives up the road from us picked one up, its been sitting for 25 years, minimal rust. They changed the Cap, rotor, condesnor, and points. Poured new gas down the carb, cranked it over, and it started right up...
Its a Buick 430? Thats what I heard anyways, I haven't looked at it yet..

1969 Wildcat. The 430 cubic inch engine was rated at 360 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque with 10.25:1 compression. The stance of the car was low to the ground which helped keep the car stable at high speeds. There was lots of chrome all around to keep things shiny and the front and rear bumpers were huge and solid. Bucket seats were offered in the Sport Coupe model.
