I found a disassembled 1955 Chevy 283 on Craigslist for $65. I was looking at the pictures and concerned about a few things. I believe I have the know how to put this together and make it run. So here are my questions.
SBC 283 $65 Boise Craigslist
1. Rust Removal: How hard would it to be to remove that rust and still have usable parts.
2. Availability of parts: Such as gaskets, parts.ect
3. Installation: Will it fit without too much welding?
Any comments would be nice too, I am wondering how well an old rusty block, heads, cams.ect would clean up or if its just better to take it to the scrapyard.
