Yeah my mechanic said we have a 360 straight 8 but through reading I had expected that we had a 440\n\nI crawled around under it all day yesterday removing all the old tanks, and found a lot less rust than I expected for a 45 year old chassis!

I like it! I think it's a "there just aren't that many of them" thing. \nIt will have a V-8 engine... probably a 413 cubic inch, a 727 tranny and a Spicer/Dana HD70 rear axle. I also believe that it has drum front brakes.
