Original engine smothered with emissions control parts and not even 200 hp. Original matching number engine still stored in garage in fair condition. rather than spend $$ on repairs and upgrades, Decided to have new 350ci performance engine installed, and spent thousands on American made high performance upgrades (see photos). Currently 92,000 miles on vehicle with only 36,000 cruising miles on new engine. Used conventional oil during brake-in period, and since only Mobil One full synthetic oil. Seller will pay shipping costs of original matching #'s engine to buyers choice of address (if in USA). 3-speed turbo 350 auto trans completely overhauled (have receipt) a few years ago.
