The 455 is an awesome motor! Did yours have one originally?

Default .......

had a 400 engine in it before. spun a rod bearing 1 week before the woodward dream cruise. i ordered the new engine from "pontiac dude " in florida. $5700. that includes shipping and $350 to break it in.
also spent $500 for a new carb. an 850 cfm quadrajet with elec. choke. i had a guy named cliff ruggles build it for me. a lot of pontiac racers use his carbs. he has a book out on how to build them.
i cant wait to get this thing on the road !!
