Figured I would say hello here :) Long story short, this was a craigslist find! The guy I purchased this from was having a tough battle with cancer God Bless him and his family! I must say that I am proud to own this, and look forward to many trips! Best part is that it fit in the garage and the wife did not get mad!

The good stuff!

Cool looking rig. Can we get some better pics so we can get a good look at it. ...

If that's the case you can find the engine I.d. # on the front of the passenger side head,just below the valve cover. This will tell you size,year and what vehicle it came from. At least up to the mid nineties anyway. Not sure how the newer ones are identified.

It certainly could be a 283. That was a popular swap and that intake is correct for a older small block.

I would be nervous with it right behind my head. Personally I think I would find a different location.
