    My 88 caprice came with a late 70s 400/6.6l too. Albeit transplanted from the stock 307. My 400 would be a Olds engine. Yours is most likely a Pontiac thanks to the 4 speed.
    I'm doing a 4 speed swap on that wagon with a 350 chevy and a A833 manual 4 speed O/D unit.

    Howdy all.
    Here it is in all it's faux wood grain glory.
    You can see the fender call out, some one had swapped the 307 for a 403. Cleaver when you think about it as they are the exact same engine externally so it is just a swap that requires a hand full of wenches. 94 more cubes without reinventing the wheels. STILL the 403 was an emissions controlled clogged out leaker that had to go.

    The orange SBC is the new transplant. GM New Process A833 is going behind it. engine/trans both came out of a 82 C10.

    Wagon is in excellent shape especially for the middle of Canada.

    Apparently so.

    Cutlass Mike, that's a nice looking project you have there. Why don't you start a separate thread introducing yourself and sharing the process with us.
