    Have this posted in the v8 regal section now has new price, pics are still over there

    Making a package deal and sending it all down the road at once. I know the regal crowd is sort of a build your own ride bunch, but figured that this would be an easy one to get back on the road.

    - '83 regal 55k orig miles, Poston Iron frame pads and new engine mounts, '73 455 with bad rod brg, 3.23 geared LS 7.5" rear, 15" ralleyes, bucket seat console for 3spd auto, slipping V6 Spec TH350C trans, little rust, black urethane body bushing kit new in box (energy suspension)

    - Extra '84 clip, '83 clip (not shown), front and rear bumpers
    - The 455 engine in my sig (minus the Poston intake)
    - 4 extra 455 engines '70 - '73 in model years
    - Set of '73 455 heads rebuilt to stock w/mild pocket port
    - 2 long shaft TH400 trannys
    - Poston 1 7/8" x 3.5" headers with 3" pipes leading to bullet mufflers and dumps by rear axle
    - Extra set of headlight surrounds for 84 clip and matching 84 limited tail light lenses
    - 3 stock flat hoods

    Price reduced, need to move!

    $2000 and will deliver for $1 a loaded mile a good distance from zip 54426

    Throwing in a 9 inch rear housing narrowed with mounts to fit g-body, 31 spline moser axles with new bearings installed, have a center carrier with stock ford 3.50 gears, had yet to order the spool or locker for it.

    -new victor reinz full gasket set

    70 heads (w/o egr)
    -stainless stage 1 valves (2.125int / 1.75exh)
    -hardened exhaust seats installed
    -pocket port work to open area under new valve sizing
    -inside of runners massaged to clean up any roughness and/or casting shift
    -brass guide liners installed
    -top of guides clearanced for .550" lift cam
    -TA single valve springs (#1435)
    -stock keepers and retainers
    -.007" cut to head gasket surface
    -chambers measure 64cc without unshrouding around intake valves
    -intake heat crossovers blocked with frost plugs

    With assembly all mocked up, cc'd out to 9.8 to 1 CR which should be fine on 93 octane with a good cooling system and a conservative timing curve. Engine should have a moderately bumpy idle and emphasis on good midrange power. I had planned to use poston headers, but the engine would be happy with manifolds if needed, paired with 3.08/3.23 rears.
