Default Well after 17 years I finally got it...

My dad and I picked up a 80 camaro from my uncle and then bought a 78 Z28 as a parts car when i was in 2nd and started it as our project. Well we sat on it for awhile and then when we were in Kentucky visiting family he spotted a blue 79 camaro way off in the woods w/a wrecked front end. We bought it and swapped the front on ours onto it b/c the body was way cleaner. We eventually dropped a motor in it then it sat, then we pulled the motor to put in another truck and that was it. This project has never been on the road in our hands.......well now its in mine.









I'm working on a motor right now just to get it running, but all i really have to do is put a windsheild in it(its cracked bad), get it painted, and finish the interior and its road worthy.

Glad to see you finally got the car over to your place. What is the ultimate plan for this thing?

street/strip, just a good cruiser and what not. I have a 305 that was given to me that i'll clean up and put together to get it going but essentially i wanna to a 383 one day.

plans to do:

-put togther current motor
-cam/lifter setup
-work the heads over
-stall(depeding on the cam)
-swap out the 2.shitty gears w/3.73's or 4.10's since its just a local/strip car
-shift kit in the TH350

the resy is just getting it painted and over stuff which really isn't to hard

Bump....

I'm going to try my best to get somewhere with this car this year. Looking at some ls swap engine mounts. Just want make sure the are useable with a/c. Already have the 5.3, need a 4l80e, crossmember, and wiring. Baby steps though

All you will need is the LS swap plates. Like dirty dingo. The stock upper and lowers will work. Trans mount will work. Depending on what trans it had stock it will bolt right in. The ac depends on the front belt drive. Truck style is most common. I know truck ac fist in a g body with almost no trouble. Your Camaro should be similar.

Also if the car has a working trans keep it. Swapping it later is easy. A driving car is hard.
