I've been lurking for a while and learned a lot from you guys. Thing is I had a few cars that I could play with in the past but life happens. Helped the others with theyr cars. Now the nest is empty, it's my turn I guess. I was not looking for a car but checking an add that I have put to sell my pick up to see if the add was allright. While browsing I found a vette for sale. the car was parked since the 80s and the guy was restoring it. The thing is the car was about 2 miles from where I live! Told the wife I was "just going to check this out" Came back with a 72 Corvette with a 454 and 4 spd everything original with a completely restored frame!Now I have to make room in the garage. My wife allready have a 95 Mustang GT.
Cant wait to rebuild the big block and "smoke" the Stang
Like I always say "Eat dessert first, life's unexpected!"
This is going to be fun!
I'll post photos as soon as I get some.

Congrats and I know it will be a fun project!

One thing to know about the 454, keep the original flywheel with the motor unless you have a new one balanced with the crankshaft. Each 454 flywheel is balanced with its original crank, so you can't just buy a new flywheel and bolt it on, otherwise you will damage the whole lower end of the engine. Success!
