    I purchased this 1970 Gulfstream Blue Skylark Post Sedan back on October, 13th, 2008.

    The car was previously owned by Pat Harmon (BignastyGS) Pat purchased the car from Baltimore, MD.

    Kevin Brungard (GS4551970) purchased the car from Pat Harmon.... both Pat and Kevin live in PA.

    I purchased the car from Kevin on October, 13th 2008.

    Pics from the day the car arrived......

    November of 2008 I purchased this complete 455 from (Buick Tim) the Engine is a true original all complete 1970 SF coded 455 out of a 67xxx mle 1970 Electra.

    From what I can see...its never been apart and the few things that are NOT... born with original would be the Belts, Upper Radiator Hose and clamps, Plug Wires, Water Pump. Someone removed the Alternator Pulley and Bolt.

    These parts were brought to "Redi-Strip" where they were chemically dipped and stripped.

    The car looks like an excellent starting point. It looks like your really paying attention to the fine details right from the get go. Also, nice to see a fellow board member from the Chicago suburbs. I'm only about a half hour from Elmhurst.

    It is a 750 cfm but no worries as you will not be able to tell any difference.

    That appears to be a BC trans. Your 1970 A body would have had a BA as I recall.
