Rust free body, all front end components replaced @ 5k miles ago
New LeMans tires 235/70/15

The extras:
462 Big block Chevy engine from 79 Suburban (454 bored .040, double roller chain and gears approx. 10k on engine)
1993+ TBI intake for BB engine
TBICHIPS.COM custom burned chip for engine/transmission combo
Trans-go shift kit w/corvette servo
Summit K-1301 cam and lifters
Kwik performance bracket kit for factory bracket use
Airtek NEW reverse rotation water pump
Hooker long tube headers used, but mint.
Weld in bung for heated O2 sensor

Essentially all that needs done is bolt all the goodies to the big block and drop it in. The engine will fit without modification to the doghouse or floorboards.

Parts that are needed for big block finalization:
Morse engineering 53MM bored TBI unit (spoke with Roy, $195 shipped to perform on an original Astro TBI)
454 injectors
Heated O2 sensor
Tranny needs a front pump seal while things are apart, it drips a wee bit, right on the exhaust crossover, very annoying.

The van is located in Saginaw, and can be driven anywhere as is.

$3000. Sorry no trades, don't even ask.

Still have this and what if I dont want the BBC how much less that stuff ???
Is the 305 in good shape and how many miles are on the eng in the truck
