Well, that one is looking promising! Craiglist map is showing around New-Egypt which is close to Cream ridge (around my neck of the woods!). Phone number comes back from that area (cell phone).

The L78 (375 hp) cannot be proven without the original engine or documentation. X66 (Big Block) may be there on tag, but without a pic, can't really tell.

Will need a bunch of metal work obviously, std black interior looks factory, aftermarket shifter (they cut trans tunnel ). Might have been Garnet red originally, not a bad color combo.

Correct BB heater box, but looks like a small block radiator. Wrong master cyl, so either it does not have disc brakes (and then not a SS396) or some swapping has gone on. Heater core is probably shot based on the loop.

Some detailed detective work needs to be done before you pay real Big Block prices!

Most likely a clone with body issues. But if you are up for a challenge, it might be worth contacting owner Rob. I see a 70s Chevelle in the pics, so he know chevys, but that is also not a good thing if you are looking for a good price

Actually, correct BB radiator is on the floor by the gold Chevelle. Make sure that is included in deal!

I don't know. Seems like you'd be paying for provenance you don't care about.

"What I want is to build a restomod/pro-touring first gen"

If that statement holds true then keep looking for a physically better car. They are out there at that price level.

The Black one has already been deleted from CNJ.

Here is a blue one for $13,500 from the same seller as the black BB above in Cream ridge nj.

https://cnj.craigslist.org/cto/d/196...681091601.html



Interior looks to be factory and in pretty good shape, Its a "late"built after Jan 1969 based on the curved headrests. Auto trans with console TH350, small block (emblems say 350), aftermarket cowl hood, but alternator mount is all wrong, components they used did not work together. Again with the power drum master cyl (what is it with this guy?).

Trunks floor has issues, rest of body probably does too! Paint and body work look to be poor quality. This will be a strip it and start from a bare body project.


Or you can go with a Real Project! again in Cream ridge but different seller for $1,200

Close, but I am looking for a car that doesn't already have an LS and suspension so I can use my drivetrain and pick out my own suspension, etc. The built cars I've found are just way too expensive.

Whether I'm still ready to write a check or not, I'm not sure anymore. My wife is trying to talk me into selling my car and getting something safer, like a new Camaro, instead so I can drive my daughter around with me. I started this thread about a month prior to finding out my wife and I were expecting. Now, my daughter eight months old and she's really attached to me. We have to trick her by distracting her with toys if I need to leave. I'd love to enjoy the car with her, but wonder if now is the right time. I found this thread, and it gives me hope that I can still exercise my dream, but wonder if I'm being foolish: https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthre...#post112263073

I'm very much an immediate gratification kind of guy, so it's hard for me to be patient and kick the project down the road.

Jake, I have 2 kids and 3, or 4, project vehicles (maybe even 5 if you wanna be technical). One day I do plan to get to all of them. Some are kid friendly, others not so much, but I figure by the time I finish them, maybe my boys will be off to college so its all good. If you have a dream to use your drivetrain in a 1st gen, do it, even if it takes years. maybe tear your car apart now and keep the motor trans stored on the side. That way when you do move forward, you truly know the condition of the motor unlike buying a used one. However, if the project takes too long, the motor will be outdated(Ask me about my 6k mile LT1 in my '79 vette, lol).
