I got everything but the engine. It has a fresh turbo 350, a B&M Holeshot convertor, floor shifter, heddman shorty's, 3 inch Borla exhaust, a Howe aluminum radiator, I got the swap mounts also. The rear is a 8.5 out of a Grand national, 4:10 with a locker. The hood is a bolt on Harwood, the paint is Hugger orange and just needs a cut-n-buff, and the interior is a custom grey/black tweed on the seats, with the rest stock black. I got the ac compressor also, and the nitrous kit...

Took it out for a spin today. I have a few minor things to finish before I bring it home, but it is pretty sweet. It drives, stops, steers like it should. I have to replace the door hinge bushings on the drivers side, work on the window track that side also, replace the speedometer cable, and charge the AC...

Got it home and detailed. I was letting it idle for a few while I was getting ready to take it out for an extended cruise. heard a noise and shut it down. This was yesterday. Trailered it to my buds shop and we did a little investigating, only made a noise after it came up to temp, decided to pull it out and tear it down. Did that today. Whoever built the engine (new Speed Pro flattops, worked stock rods with L19 bolts, 268 comp cam) had the torque specs too tight on the main bolts and it wiped the front bearing and the crank. Pulled a fresh .010/.010 small journal steel crank from the parts stash and cleaned it up. Waiting on bearings...

Got it running and been driving it around. It is a Hugger Orange 1987 S10 Blazer with a few mods consisting of a bolt on fiberglass Harwood cowl hood, Eibach lowering kit, Lakewood traction bars, Heddman shorty headers with a 3 inch dual exhaust, Borla stainless mufflers and turndowns, 3:73's with a posi unit, a fresh turbo 350 with a hard shifting shift kit, a B&M Holeshot convertor, B&M ratchet shifter, a few custom interior touches such as an overhead console and a Grant steering wheel, Sony stereo system, and lastly the engine. It is a 1962 small journal 327 bored .030, stock polished rods, with L19 bolts, an .010/.010 steel crank, Cloyes double roller timing chain, a Comp Cams 268 hydraulic flat tappet camshaft. Up top is a set of 1969 441 300 horse 350 heads with 2.02/1.6 valves, an ancient Holley dual plane factory manifold, and a 600 Holley carb. It has a large aftermarket aluminum radiator that keeps the temps at 160 after a 25 mile cruise, and I used a 1989 Firebird serpentine belt set up for the accessories. The AC is functional...
