76 D200 build, a little performance and more

Going for the patina look on this one. As in... a good excuse to not have to paint it. Technically and mechanically it'll be all new and redone.

It had a tired poor running 318 with a stuck valve, bent pushrods and a lot more issues . The radiator support was rotten. The floor had holes and in general it was abused and poorly maintained.

I built a new 360 for it with some performance upgrades and large vakve 360 heads. Cam intake headers efi etc etc.

Redid the interior. Still have to drop it significantly. Will probably fabricate something...parts are hard to get here (netherlands)


I'll just add some pics

as it came in: (sorry links only, google images won't show the pic in image tags)

now I had to fabricate a surge tank. The mechanical pump will pump from tank to the surge tank top inlet. The burp line from the top will return to the tank. the EFI fuel pump will feed from the bottom and the EFI pressure regulator return returns to the tank at fuel level

I have used this type of system on my 83 chevy stepside also (it's got a supercharged 355)
