Re: Need Advice
That's a relatively cheap price of entry into the game if it's as nice as you describe. You couldn't paint one you own for that. The 390 is a good base and can give you some power with minimal changes. The only downside is that that bodystyle is a bit less desirable than the earlier versions. However, you won't find an earlier model for those numbers in that condition. I'd say if it is the car you want, and you have a vision of where you want to take it, it'll be fun.
Usual first things on an 390, ceramic coated headers, good dual exhaust, shift kit (sounds like you may have it) and a distributor recurve make a big difference and base for more power later. Gears next, then if it is an iron intake, more gain there. In the end, you can have a strong 390 or go all the way up to a deep breathing 445, all based on what you want to do
