It does have a fuelie but it's way OT it was a 270hp.
There has to be more to the story. And more pictures too.
Here it is in about 1970 I'm the little guy
The 1985 TPI 350 Is a little off topic here, when it was installed it was the latest and greatest. It's a bit dated now, but still runs great. It had a 365hp 327 before that.
What became of the 327 365hp engine?
Scotty as much as I am a huge fan of both the 283/270 and the 327/365 I am sure the car with its present engine still puts a smile on your face, especially with a car that you have been around since your youth.
Very cool Scotty I like the color and the car now. That vintage picture is the best and I am glad that it's yours.
It wound up in my 60 vette then got sold to Hamber in Vancouver
It does make me smile! Fortunately Dad is still kicking he just can't drive it any more. I would look like to recreate the version with the 365hp he thinks it's a good idea, I've got most of the parts.
Vancouver WA, or Vancouver BC? I'm guessing WA.
Do you know if it was from a '64 or a '65?
Man I love this thread I pop in now and then and the pics just get me flowing! So I know this isn't the thread but all you gasser fu** everything corvette option there is I am selling some of my collection! 56 57 61 bodies frames and more body pieces enough to build a ragged tatherrd vette.

here's another thread with some more old pics
BC, it was a 1964. it came out of my uncles car in the very early 70's
here's some pics from another thread that work for this thread also.
Dads project, sold before completion. the car on the left side of the garage is the black 57 in my post above.

LB could "Frustrate" corvette be at NY national speedway?
This shot came from a Connecticut Dragway series site and it look like CT.
This thread is great, I'm so tired of perfectly restored usually fake numbers matching old vettes. There's nothing cooler than a modified early vette!
NCRS = No Components Remain Stock
I agree Scotty. I would not walk down to the end of my driveway to see the silly numbers matching early Corvettes (except for a big brake fuelie maybe). I generally avoid the restored numbers matching types at shows. For me there is nothing to see that I have not seen many times over.
Doyle Fletcher drove and maintained this 64 corvette for 3 years for Ferrill Chevy-Olds out of Decatur, Texas. Wayne Calvert Racing Engines out of Denton, Texas did all the machine work on the engine. I held the ET and MPH records.
