$760 Big-Block En­gine Swap!

Low Rider - - DEPARTMENT -

Road­kill Garage is of­ten about do­ing things quick and low-buck, and this episode is an awe­some ex­am­ple. David Freiburger and Steve Dul­cich show you how to get big-block power for dirt cheap by se­lect­ing an en­gine out­side the main­stream; this time, it’s a Buick 455 off of Craigslist. The ini­tial plan was to toss it into Freiburger’s ’66 Buick con­vert­ible, but watch the episode and you'll see why that fell through. In­stead— ex­hibit­ing no fear of cross­breed­ing—the guys put the big Buick into Road­kill Garage’s ’66 Mal­ibu known as the Crew Cab Chev­elle! The re­sult is an af­ford­able power in­crease that took just 21⁄2 days and ended up with mas­sive burnouts for dis­tance.
