Talking New to the team

good morning,
new to this and have been reviewing all of the great information provided by all of you. Live in georgia and have recently acquired a 1968 camaro SS. Doing a complete frame off restoration. I am a motor head from back in the 70's & 80's. I have a couple of boys that are assisting me with the tear down and will be semi involved in the rebuild. Looking forward to gathering needed info to do this right the first time.

Thank you for having a site that can utilized

Re: New to the team

Can't do totally stock, but would love the get it as far there as possible. The car belonged to my brother in ohio for 21 years, ex-brother-in-law for 5 and from what I understand it was his cousins prior. They removed the original 396 and installed a modified 1969 396. I would prefer to calm it down a little. It was set up with 2 4 barrels (of course they destroyed the original hood) but my brother was able to find an original SS hood. Old intake was for a square bore (but cracked). I intended to get it running then store the motor while I work on the body, etc, but found foreign debris below intake. I will post photos as I edit. The car is 85 percent stripped down.
