Default 195? Pontiac StarChief

I have had this car for probably 10yrs or more. An old man gave it to me for rebuilding an engine for him. He said it ran when parked. I forgot what year it was. Really I don't know much about this car. I do know it has a V8 in it! lol. The floor pans are rusted out. If you want this car PM me with an offer.



There are a couple more pics here: http://s347.photobucket.com/albums/p469/Newell44/

1957 287 CID of raw power. Be sure to hook up the vacuum line to the wipers so they work.

57 had a tire smoking 347" engine. With that puny 4 barrel, it may feel more like a 287 though.
I think you missed the "window" when the scrap prices were up though.....

55 ~ 287
56 ~ 316
57 ~ 347
58 ~ 370
59-60 ~ 389
61-66 ~ 389 & 421

Carb is a Carter WCFB. '53 & '54 ~ 268.
Scrap prices haven't gone up much, so I don't think I missed the window.
