New build.
BaT auction. Not a place I associate with overly high prices.
Some interesting comments by the seller. Ride height....
Would I spend xxx hours building a car then drive it 250 miles and sell it? No way.... takes all sorts.

I see he didn't spend a lot of time painting the underneath bits. Not a show-queen, just get in and go.

Couldn't give me a 305. The crappiest SBC GM ever turned out.

Yeah but Ivor can bolt a 350 to his existing 305 mounts, stroke it to a 383, and know....hold on!
