    I don't know a 540 bb is around $12k so lets say a 461 is $8k plus car. Just thinking about cost to build it. Probably about right as far as cost to build it yourself.

    $12 ain't bad if it's close to what you're looking for.

    The novelty of a 5 speed wears off when an old Powerglide car leaves you behind.....

    "I plan to complete the assembly until traded
    Update 8/31/2015
    Tired of time wasters so I have decided to start building this massive 461 so it will have a completed engine soon. Bring real trade offers as this car will have a zero mile 600 hp 461 and only looking at realistic offers. "
    Good idea, keep dumping money into it. Being high is going to stay that way - no matter how much you keep dumping into it.:confused:
    The 78 I just sold for $6,200 was nicer than that.

    I don't get why people list a car for sell and continuously work and dump money into it while they are trying to sell it???

    Makes no sense, either you want to keep it or get rid of it...dumping more cash into it isn't making it any easier

    I get the depression of spending money trying to make the car presentable before selling. I got to a point where it always felt like I was always fixing stuff up for the next guy instead of myself.:(

    That's what I was thinking Tom. Overall it seems like a quality build, not a hack job. And if you like the look of it, and it's complete or nearly, why not! :cool:

    True but that car would be screaming with only 2 speeds. Drag racing sure but town driving?

    I don't know a 72 camaro ss396 all original might be worth it. Out of my league but last year for big block from factory, not allot of them around if your looking for pure car.
