This car has a SB Chevy 283 and TH350 Transmission and disc brakes up front. Cylinder 3 has zero compression. I owe the bank $8,000 The top works but has a hydraulic fluid leak in the pump so we have to fill it up. It looks nice and we enjoyed it for years but we no longer have a garage or a place to work on her. So, I'm willing to sale for what we owe on her. The body isn't perfect but it's not a show car but it does look good and the floor was replaced before I owned it. It's a blast to drive and grabs a lot of attention even though it's not a perfect specimen. So if you'd like to rebuild the 283 or drop another engine in, it's a great car. Honestly, it could be a blown head gasket. I just got it running a week ago after sitting for a couple of years and while adjusting the distributor it stopped running and I couldn't start it again. Checking for top dead center on cylinder 1, I decided to check for compression on others when I found cylinder 3 didn't have any compression when turning over. That's as far as I've gone. The interior is in great shape with white seats. Door panels are faded a bit by the window so it looks slightly orange. Cool Car.
