The Great One Project

Last year my brother and I were given a ’69 GTO in exchange for helping our uncle.
It has been sitting in a barn uncovered on a dirt floor for about six year. It has some big dints and rust but nothing we can’t handle. It’s an automatic on the column, with a YS code 400/350HP engine.
We finely got it home, we checked all the fluid, put a new battery in it, we then poured some gas down the carburetor and she started right up. We were doing burnout that week.

OUR PLAIN

Bigger cam
Duel intake manifold
700cc carburetors
MDS ignition
Triple valve springs
Turbo 400 transmission
And much more…

Thanks for the update! If you want to keep everybody up to date on your progress in the future, please start a new thread and if you want you can link to this one. This thread was a little too old to resurrect.
