Are you kidding, I would have loved to have that car. I had a 4cyl, and you had an 8. How can you compare, you lucky SOB. You could have done so much with that small block..........so much.

Well the t-tops leaked like a sieve, the 307 had NO mods available, believe me, I checked. And a Dodge Caravan beat me, I don't think the van was even trying. The Cutlass couldn't even do a peg legged burnout. But in reality, it was a extremely nice car, just wasn't fast enough for me

Oh Cody, Cody, Cody, the 307 could have easily been bored out to a 383 stroker, with about 350 rwhp, and converted the 2 bolt to a 4 bolt main. The carb was probably a Q-jet which could have been rebuilt with smaller primaries and some nice larger secondaries. If it was only a 1 barrel then it'* just a matter of changing the intake. I think I have about 4 Q-jets and a few Holley’* I could have lent ya. Just think of the possibilities.


There nice cars.

307 into a 383 stroker? I thought that you had to have a 350 with a 400 crank to make it into a 383 stroker, I don't see how you can get an additional 76 ci out of it. Unless someone did something different? And it was a Q-jet, I was going to dump it for a Holley 650 but the tranny started to slip so I sold it for the Bonnie. I paid 1800 originally and I sold it for 2800

Not sure about doing that to a 307. 305 definitely.
Easier to drop in a 350ci and start from there.

For $1600 I nearly made it 100,000 miles in that ugly little thing.

You're right, I got overly excited, no the block won't have enough meat in it to go 4.030 you need to start with a 350 or a large journal 327 block to build a 383.
used to be you had to use a 400 crank and grind the journals down to 350 size but now a days they are casting and forging 383 cranks from the manufacturer. You could have always gone to a 350 and still gotten the same amount of hp. I love chevy'*. That car would be worth something if you kept it in good shape.
