Nice early 68 Z!  It looks like previous owner wanted people to know it was a Z/28.

I'll be anxious to see how your project progresses.

Cat has all four, just the pic.
Purpose built always has fun as the intent. They tend to look best nose up off the line, front wheels hanging...jmo.

Added and will NOT be put back that way when I am done.

He has all four, just the shot. Earns his stay by keeping the place vermin free. Only mean to spiders, birds, chipmunks, baby rabbits, mice, other cats, and small snakes. He nailed me a few times when he was younger, crazy tom, no reason. Mellowing with age now.


You have been talking about that Z for awhile,  need to rehash the story for those fairly new to the site. Nice to see it will be coming back to life. Always a good read theses projects.

421 gen 1 small block maybe?  That might be enough small block for a big block guy...

Im a fan of the bigger cube small blocks. As long as 302 is on the air cleaner, most wont know its roller cammed dart block, 427, with 2.08's. Reverse pattern, full manual 350 with a brake, moser sportsman kit in the rear, ford style bearings. Time to make a comeback at the strip...13's....lols.

Probably gonna do a 331 or an old school 301.  I might change my mind but for now that's the plan.  Light weight bits and pieces..  Maybe some trickery here and there..  As for the rest of the drivetrain.  Sticking with a Muncie.  3 pedals 4 LIFE!! and a 4.88 or 5.13 spooled 12 bolt.


  Ill re-tell the story on the car at a later date.  Have to keep everyone in suspense..
