    super rare 376 GMC only produced in Hawaii. My grandpas friend's uncle yanked it from a car Elvis had then gave it to gramps. He had it in an an early Harley for awhile then let it set in his barn for the last 34 years. I'm thinkin about getting rid of it though, takes up too much space.

    hmm... looks like a plain ole 216 with Edmunds intake and Fentons to me..

    "not that there is anything wrong with that"
     
  9. why would they produce a "only 376 for Hawaii" Like Paul said, looks like a 235,216 with some goodies.. Hey Paul, we fixed the Nomad ! stupid Carb kits they supply(plastic crap !) accelerator pump, came a part .

    You can't french pineappletons. They gotta be able to swivel. Unless they're like, dummy pineappletons.

    A 292 crank will not fit.
    $800 was what we started with ,we have spent a little more than that now, most of the parts were stuff we all had laying around.
    CG let me know if your buddy has a crank thanks

    We put in the rear bar and worked on the cover some more this week,built the top tank for the radiator and spent a ton of time trying to figer out were to put all the little stuff like the fuel shut off ,batt,chute pull,gauges,shifter and mag switch ,what a pain , because you need to get to all of them safely while your seat belted in up side down on fire ,, hope that dont happen but if it does you need to get to that stuff.
