Rob, you should have seen me after I installed the engine and transaxel in the 911. I jacked it up as high as I could on stands, then used two floor jacks in tandem to snake it all in. It really wasn't that big of a deal, but I was by myself, so it took some getting up, getting down... etc. What is cool is it was all in one unit. You get it in place, four bolts, and then you just hook the electrical, linkage, oil lines, fuel, drive shafts, etc., and good to go. Oh, the reason for the extraction was the synros in the trans were bad. I had it rebuilt, new clutch, bearings, surfaced flywheel, rebuilt starter, alternator, drive shaft boots. and a restoration of the Weber carbs. Oh, I totally went through the brakes, had the calipers restored, new pads and hardware, new rubber lines on all four corners, new Konis x 4, ... All new shifter linkage bushings.... New horns... Uh... LOL!!!! And the original interior was gone, so I found original rear "seats" etc and lucked up on some aluminum frame Wolf Racing seats for the front... and a really cool Raid steering wheel, all from the same era, early 70s and rare.

It is kind of tired at 108K on the original motor, but still will run well over 135.... last time out. The plan is to pull the motor and replace it with newer one with 100 more HP. 300hp in a 2,200 pound car should be pretty quick I would think. ;)
Cool project.

I remember those Cutlass'!!! That one is so fine! You still have it? I had a friend that had one. Kind of their answer to the SS Monte Carlo. That Buick Grand National though!!!!

Back then I was driving an 80 Z28 with a hopped up 350 out of an old Corvette, then added an under the hood super charger, headers, a blueprinted transmission (would bark third gear!), 265 50s on the front, 295 50s rear, IROC flairs and front spoiler, and a fiberglass L88 hood. AC blew cold and it idled like a baby and it ran on rails... But oh the 0-140 it would scream!!!

Nice rides. I sold it years ago.
Only reason they were "GT" is a dealer in Highpoint NC got permission to do a dealer mod.
