That was the first 300 I picked up. I picked it up about 5 years ago. Later on I picked up a couple of 2nd gens because I really wanted to run 424's and the only way to get a 424 for a first gen is the custom $500+ ones. Figured I would fix this one up and flip it, but Shade has more time and expertise than I do, and I'm sure his end result will be much nicer than any attempt I would have made.
I already had some parts I sent with it that I knew it would need. Freshly bored cylinder and new piston, timing chain, battery, front knuckles with new bearings and ball joints, new tie rod ends, gasket kit and oil seals, air filter, spark plug, and a stock 300 rear end with a rebuild kit. I was hoping that would be all Shade would need.
Hopefully the rest of what is needed won't set him back much.
When I bought it, by all appearances it had been sitting in the guys yard for years without moving. Had about 4 inches of tree sap on it.
That said, it was mostly there (missing rear end) and black engine oil is better than milk (water)!
