This motor came from a 1972 C-10 P/U with 260K miles. It’s been bored .040 over making it a 357cid w/ 9.5:1 compression. A mild Melling cam and hydraulic tappet lifters. I suspect with a 4bbl carb, a good intake and some headers it should produce in the neighborhood of 300-325 HP.
History of this Vehicle
It was removed from the truck several years ago when the truck was sold. The motor has been on my buddy’s garage floor since then. When I told him I wanted to rebuild a motor from the ground up, (since I’ve never done that before) he graciously allowed me to rebuild his. I have no idea what he will do with it…but I do know he is looking for something to put it in. It is an all date correct motor (block, heads, intake)
