Saw this last night at a local cruise. Looks to be a complete Olds Toranado engine and transaxle. I bet it is a hand full!
Chevado!

My friend Jim in Florida found a neat 57 Chevy,   but it was not meant to be......the trailer with the car in it flipped over........luckily no-one was hurt.....

Interesting, a Bel Air ragtop with the six lug wheels and most likely the rest of the Chevy Black Widow modifications. Sedco Engineering down South was the skunk works unit that was formed by GM to circumvent the anti-racing edict and they assembled the Widows and sold parts to privateers.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.
