    My dad ,who has worked on these car for about twenty years, said it is pitted to bad to save. As far as the motor mounts for the big block, my dad knows how to make his own to fit the motor. These homemade motor mounts are almost always better than aftermarket mounts. The only thing about getting the big block is that I would have to find a new tranny.

    I have good news and bad news. First the bad news, my 318 is junk. The good news is that I might be getting a big block 400 for it.I know it won't be original but it will work. If you still need some parts for your 318 let me know. I might have them for sale here pretty quick.

    Work on the car body is going to be post poned till about January. We are going to work on the motor and tranny to get it running first. The reason we aren't working on the body is because one of the kids at the North Platte Community College said that he would be willing to redo the body for us as a project for school. The labor is free and all I have to pay for is the parts. They always do a professional job on the project cars. My dad is happy about this because he really wasn't looking forward to fixing that rear panel.LOL
