As purchased the engine was pretty much in factory condition. A 1970 Chevelle 350 intake and Quadrajet of unknown origin were installed somewhere along the line. Receipts received with the car show the engine was rebuilt with a .030 overbore being the only machining required. Engine ID shows it's the original engine to the car and came equipped with a Powerglide and being a Fremont, CA. built car, air injection reactor system.
Naturally I couldn't leave well-enough alone and the Quadrajet was having some flooding problems so I upgraded the intake and carburetor to an Edelbrock 1401 Performer intake and Edelbrock 1406 carburetor w/electric choke. And, just because I had them laying around from another project, the distributor was swapped out for a Mallory UniLite along with an Accel coil and a set of Taylor wires. Rusty headers of unknown origin and jerry-rigged alternator & power steering brackets were replaced with factory exhaust manifolds and factory correct brackets & braces. Complete exhaust was replaced with new 'X-change' system from Pypes.
