Hey thought I would add my little buildup to the forum.
I bought the car back in December 2008. I found it on Craigslist down in Oregon believe it or not. I found it, contacted the owner started going through the motions. Had it inspected through a 3rd party, and after it was inspected and appraised, I bought it sight unseen. Had it shipped up for about $1800 from Bend Oregon to North Pole Alaska. It got here like 2 days before Christmas, and went straight into storage to wait out the cold. I finally got to drive it in early May. She ran like a champ, I was a happy man.
I drove it as it was until about July. Then I started having low oil pressure problems. Low at idle and when accelerating about 3000 RPMs. Long story short, replaced main bearings (which were down to the copper), that didn't help. Rebuild time. I limped it through summer, and here we are.
This is a picture the appraiser took of it in Bend. It has a built 377.
