Picked up a pretty clean 83 Regal. Has a 383 stroker crate motor installed last August, 373 gear, 8.5 rear end out of a GN and a 400 trans. Guy has to dig out paperwork and send me specs on motor. Probably going to look for a turbo 350 trans, if memory serves me right the 350 is a better trans. If I'm wrong then please correct me.

Going to have my buddy paint it as its sun faded pretty bad. Blue vinyl 1/4 top and headliner replaced 2yrs ago. So probably have to paint it White, Silver or Blue to match the top and blue interior. More than likely will do a 24" staggered set up for the wheels. I know not everyone's cup of tea, but it's what I like.

Eventually will sell the 383 and do a turbo LS set up. But I'm going to just have fun and beat the shit out of the 383 for a season.

Nice, th400 is stronger than the th350
TH400 is much stronger...gear ratios are a little different. TH350's are more efficient.

A TH350 (BUILT) is better...I blew the sprag (repeatedly) on mine with about 450ish HP. I can rebuild a TH350 in my sleep...had one out 6 times one summer.

Damn 24” wheels? I had a 87 GN and sold it to my brother and he put 18s and I thought those were way too big.

Oh my God I want so hard. My first car was when I turned 16 was an 88 Monte. I legit still miss that thing. Please don't put 24's on it. That's all I'll say.

Nice ride. I love those seats. Between the stock suspension and those seats, it's like riding on a cloud. Or at least a sofa. haha
