"Its a cool car. Its also a huge decision for you, as whatever you think it will cost to get sorted, will blow out. If you have a safe place to store it, just sit on it and think about what you want as the final outcome. Then go for it."

"Here is an example of an okay car that was not sold on Ebay. My guess is that the reserve price range would be 14-20K. So if you throw 10K on your car will it fetch 19K?"

429 cadillac engine kit

Posted by Dave Fundaburg on January 14, 2018 at 1:10pm 3 Comments

I was just wondering if anyone had any issues with the quality of the parts, or if there was a better way to go. I was also curious to know if anyone has used their performance upgrade camshaft. I will be using a 750 c.f.m. Edelbrock…

Turbo Hydra-Matic

Posted by Anders on January 12, 2018 at 2:14pm 6 Comments

THM400 or Turbo 400, not sure what you guys talking about?

I have not found any reference in the 1964 Shop Manual to THM400 or any word with 400 attached to. Also checking my 1966 Shop Manual and 400 is not present there either, only Turbo Hydra-Matic. Serviceman bulletins for 1964 does also NOT state 400. Sales brochure does not use 400.…
