I have the original #s 455 block and a pair of Ga heads set aside. The non-original '71 Toronado 455 is a great revving engine with some serious cam.

Correct intake, valve covers, QJet and original #s distributor await eventual re-installation.

Below are some pics from March 2, 2002 when the car was purchased (the first time) by Terry Divelbliss from Alan Dutterer. It had monster tires on Wheel Vintiques 80's-style SSIIs, 3" duals with X pipe, and traction bars.
