Need Engine

New Member rebuilding a 1969 GTO. Not looking for original.

Currently does not have engine or transmission.

Any advice on where to get an engine and transmission?

Looking for 400 or close horsepower.

Thanks in advance.

Your best bets are:
A. the boards (here and other GTO or GM communities)
B. Craigslist (SearchTempest - The EASY way to search Craigslist will help a lot with that)
C. Fleabay (but be careful)

Actually be careful no matter what. There are lots of people here to help you and you can check resources online to confirm the year, size and origin of any Pontiac block, heads, intake and tranny.

Others will chime in too I am sure

That's a beautiful engine. But after getting it here would be like half my budget. Unfortunately.

Depending on where you live, this engine may interest you. I've seen pix of it and it looks nice, but I was more interested in the hood until someone else got to it. Endura bumper too that looks good from the pictures he sent me. Kinda pricey, but includes the lights, brackets, etc.
