The Engine

This is a 1965 289 cubic inch engine making about 300 horsepower at the flywheel (bhp). She sports a complete rebuild:

High performance 289 block and heads

Bored .030 over

Decked .010

Flat top pistons - 9.8:1 compression

Larger Manley valves

Crane Cam

Edelbrock dual plane manifold "The Performer 289"

Holley 600 CFM vacuum secondary 4 bbl

Hi-Po 289 exhaust manifolds

Duraspark II distributor

MSD ignition

I'm hoping to add a few small things to the engine that I just didn't get around to doing: mainly a K&N filter, air cleaner spacer, removable firewall/shocktower braces, and those new Hedman headers!
