This is my 1977 L82 4spd which I bought last July.  It was in fair condition with original engine that had just been rebuilt.  After I put about two hundred miles on it, one day it started to overheat.  I was almost home so I pulled over, let it cool then drove home.  I noticed antifreeze coming out the exhaust. The next week I started tearing into it and found the block was cracked.  I decided then to just go wild.  I removed the body and did a total refab.  I bought a ZZ4 long block and built it from there with the stage three kit, added the flares and hood and striped it to the glass and then painted it.  I did everything myself in my shop.
