It'* just a 389 .040 over '65 389 heads not sure now if they were 2bbl or 4bbl heads it'* been a while sine I checked the numbers. It'* got a Crane Ram Air IV replacement cam. Got a 2-speed (boring) going to have a 4-speed and a 4:11 posi installed.Won't be able to cruise at 70mph down the 4-lane but it would get there Quick!

Needs a lot of work, but considering it'* nearly as old as I am, it looks good. Engine sounds nice with that cam. What'* your plan for it? Restore or strip it for racing. I personally would set it up for the strip.

Need to put it back on the road. It'* been on the back burner for too many years. No garage dosen't help either.
