Older Chevy V-8 conversion in 108
While driving through Hampstead NC, spotted a 108 with CBC V-8 painted on windshield with white shoe polish. Turns out car is a 250S. Vin is bad. Title reads 108 101212055653. It has a 283 with a 2 speed powerglide. The cnter section of the subframe was cut and reversed. Drag link is custom as is the idler bracket. It has an A-6 GM a/c compressor, and the factory (GM) alt. and P/S pump. Body was probably green origionally, was white or silver at some time and is now flat black. Has the usual rust issues at the front of the rockers but 3 of 4 windows work as do the lights, hazards, and A/C. Does anyone outthere know who might have done the conversion? I would guess at least 10 years ago plus. I plan to do a rat-rod type of clean up on it. The interior is pretty good, needs a windshield (delaminated) and all seals. BTW, paid 1K. Any info would be appreciated.
