Hey, thanks for getting back to me David. Well, I obviously love the idea of the hemi but as suggested above I think it would cost way too much and kind of be a waste of a hemi! Currently it has a weak small block chevy 350 in it (my Tundra could probably 1/4 mile as fast as this car). I have a 383 stroker sitting around that needs rebuilt. I am also leaning towards a T56 six-speed. I took it off the market, and may or may not sell it to one guy that appreciates it as much as I do. Anyway, thanks for all the info you sent me and any suggestions at this point would be awesome, as I'm really open minded about how it should be done!
I'm not sure if you got my private message, but I bought this car about 6 months ago in Brevard, NC. I haven't done anything with it, so I placed it on Craigslist a couple weeks ago. A guy came out and offered to buy, but the sale is pending a smooth title transition (find out at dmv tomorrow). Anyway, I went down to the garage this morning and just sat and looked at it, noticing how much work/how many hours it took to get it to this point and I started getting nostalgic about it! Came in and somehow, miraculously, found your thread. Now I'm having second thoughts about selling it!
