Sorry about previous post.

I hope no ones pissed about the no rust on the car. I guess sometimes we get lucky and are in the right place at the right time. Believe me I could not believe it when Dad called me and said you have to go look at this car...

motor is back

sent to 455 block that was with car out to be reworked and this is what we received back. im not much into the whole gear head talk. but I did tell the fella that built it I wanted One Bad ass Motor that folks new I was coming down the road. I do know he stroked it to 476 and he said it should have just under ??? with pump gas 10.1 compression and about ??? ft torque. full Eidelbrock top end. Quick Fuel Card. that is about all the motor talk I know. But good thing dad Speaks greek cause him and the guy that built the motor had a great conversation.
