    Just picked up a 1964 Special DeLuxe and a 455 and need some pieces for it. The 455 is a '75 and really tired. I need some PRE-EGR intake stuff as in heads and intake manifold, possibly an upgrade cam(of course!) with lifters, nothing too radical (maybe stage I-ish?) and a used 455 manual Flywheel to get balanced with the crank job next week. I am on a budget. primarily interested in good used Detroit iron taking up shelf space. Thanks guys...

    I have a couple of 70 cast iron intakes. Shipping from NC will not be cheap. If you do not find one closer let me know.

    Late '69 coded engine. From a BCE body. Not heavily scaled / corroded. Been drained and upright for a long time. Willing to pull off heads and intake and have checked. Original hardware would be included - intake and heads. Greyhound Bus should handle - intake in one crate, heads in a second.

    Hey NMG... Thanks for the look! I think for now I have a local guy that has a barn full of 430 and 455 long blocks, but I may be interested in that PS bracket; do you have the other 1/2? ws

    Got a fine 68 430 intake manifold that came on an engine with the big port heads. Its a long ways with shipping, but if you want it, throw $10 on whatever the shipping cost is.
