So now that I'm over the "shock and awe", is this an original 348 car, or built up? A "sleeper" would be rare for that year, but... Hats off to your dad for building up a W engine. While I hear some performance parts are now back on the market, they still have to be scarce. Even finding original used stuff is difficult. One of our hydraulic suppliers has a decent collection of Chevy stuff including a fire truck that he bought for the 409 engine. Dennis
