I am currently in the process of swapping a 73 Buick 455 into a 79 C3 Corvette, originally this started out with me buying a B.O.P. th350 transmission to tear into and look at, paid $175 for it and found out it was a fresh rebuid. And then you know.. i had to have a motor for the transmission. Then a car for the motor. I picked up a fair condition 455 from a 69 wildcat, turns out the motor is a 73 that was swapped into the wildcat. So i am doing a full rebuild of the motor to 10.5 to 1 compression.
My "Performance" parts are listed below
Speed pro Hypeeutectic pistons .30 over 23cc with valve notches.
TA 288-94H Cam
Stock rebuild on numbers matching heads.
