Bought my 67 Vette December 1970 after I got after got out of the Army, Vietnam Viet, wanted something that went fast & loud, 327 / 300 hp, 4 speed, 3:73 rear, 2nd owner, stolen once, broke into to steel twice, parked it for 30+ years, my neighbor has a paint and body shop, for the last 20 years keep telling me he would help me get her back on the street where she belonged. Finely took him up on the offer in 2013, pulled motor in my garage, outstanding engine builder Ted did the motor, .020 over on my 327, Edelbrock RPM top end kit, speed pro pistons, a few other goodies, hooker SS headers, runs and sounds like a big block. Have all the original parts wrapped up. Have a few videos on youtube.
Have many more pics, going back to 1970 if needed.
Before the Vette I had a 1966 Olds 442 4-speed that I built into a drag car, 2-4's, W-30 cam, headers, whatever hot parts were available for the 400 block, it was very quick!
