Does the side of the block say 401?
It could be a service block and still a 360,
 or a swapped in 401.

Are those seats leather?

Nice nice car you have there either way Clap

No, there’s nothing cast on the side of the block. The casting number on the back of the block says it’s a 401 when I looked it up. Seats are vinyl. Thanks, I’m really into this car!!

Nice find! A real keeper. Anything it needs will be a labor of love.
The most powerful tool is the question.

Nice car, great provenance! It looks like the perfect find for a guy that wants to drive while restoring. Good luck with it! Stu

Stu,

That’s exactly what I’m going to do! Rebuild the suspension, I have the carb getting done, timing, new plugs. The interior is really nice with the exception of the front seat covers. My sons are already asking when we are going for ice cream!!!

Got new leafs, and shocks in the rear. Also threw on some old slapper bars! The tops of the tires were in the wheel wells before. Springs were broken, and it had air shocks on it, that were also busted. Now she sits real nice!!

Now, should I stick with the Minilites, or go to something more muscle car? Like Cragar SS or Indy Mags?
