Golden performance 383,. Thats golen engines,. They are golden i suppose,..
ZF transmission?,. Mebbe,. But likely T56,.
This car was on craigslist awhile back i called left a message but never git a reply,.asking price was 6500 then,.
I like the no console style,. My W30 had no console neither did my 66 impala ss, consoles were an option back in the day,.
I think a white shifter knob would look better, and match the interior, and should have a leather shift boot made from yhe leftover seat material so it all matched.
CTS wheels look good,.they would be awesome chromed,.

One really has to wonder.  Dishes out the cost of a Golen crate engine but keeps the old LT1 ignition system on it?  Spends the bucks to upgrade the rear axle but keeps the drum brakes?  Spends the dollars on a Magna Flow exhaust but cheaps out by not getting the tail pipes?  Does shocks all away around and replaces the sway bar bushings but leaves the rest of the suspension as is?  

Quite simply, a catalogue hot rod, and to top it off, he paints it baby poo yellow.  Don't even like the wheels.  Definitely low class and certainly not worth the bucks.

Certainly has more questions than answers,but can't deny that powertrain combo sounds fun.

I agree,. The lack of headers will cut it back to less than 400,..

I was thinking the same thing . If I had spent that kind of cash , would have finished off the exhaust . Cause that engine is definitely not a cheap replacement engine . I like the combo though , wish I could get a setup similar to that .

I exchanged a few emails with the builder/original seller when it was on Craigslist in May.  Yes, ZF.  He planned on a console but sold the car first.  I think it was on Craigslist less than a week before an out-of-town buyer committed to it; he updated the ad to show the pending sale, then again when he received the money.

Lots more build pics here:

So it really does have a ZF trans.

This is pretty cool. It needs a console or some kind of better looking shifter and then I'd drive it as-is.
