Through a search of D.O.T., records I found that
we were the 8th owners and I was able to contact most of the other owners for
info and history on the car. The original 455 was a victim of a street race
that destroyed the block. The original w-30 intake was all that was left in
the trunk so a search found a 71 442 motor that was rebuilt to 70 w-30 specs
with "G" heads being used in place of the rare "F" heads.
The result is a strong running 455 that runs on regular unleaded gas all day long. We enjoy taking it out on weekends and usually take a long trip each summer to Florida and enjoy cruising the highway the only way, with the top down!
