Re: La Crosse- 1960 GMC Custom

Well I've been debating about which motor/transmission we were going to put in the truck. Decided on the 283 that is bored 40 over and rebuilt Powerglide. Cleaned up the short block and just waiting for the heads.

Have not posted any updates in a while but we took the motor all the way apart and cleaned everything up and reassembled with new parts.
