The '76 Coupe Deville I fixed up for my young son got trashed some years back, but I saved the engine, and now it's rebuilt with some high-perf mods, like ported and polished heads,big valves, and .030 over-bore etc, and a bit higher performance cam, with roller rockers. I bolted it in my '75 El Camino this morning. The El Camino is body-off restoration, and now the the engine and TH400 are bolted in, it's just about time to bolt the body back on the frame.
Nothing like Caddy power for a Chevy!:)

It's gonna be a daily driver, so the engine wont be too radical. I have a 9" Ford rear end in it from Currie, set up for this chassis.
