Default Project: Tire Burner (Warning: GM content)

how it started out was my uncle was lookin on craigslist for a transmission he needs for a project he working on and he came across a S10 for $800. its a 1996 SS S10. stock had a 4.3 engine in it, automatic tranny. the guy that was selling it took the motor and tranny out to put in a V8, never got around to putting the V8 in. My uncle called me up and told me to check it out to see if i wanted it to fix it up otherwise we was going to buy it just for the transmission. we went to check out the truck and i decided i wanted to fix it up. its not exactly what i wanted to do, I wanted to find a 2WD ranger and drop in a 5.0 and make it a sleeper. but i couldnt pass this up. The body needs some work, interior needs a good cleaning. onto the pics:



a few exterior pieces are missing but thats fine for right now

Not 100% sure if this is a 350 or a 305. going to try and figure it out for sure tonight. its a 700r$ transmission. going to rip all the Throttle body stuff, and AC stuff off and make it into a carb ran engine. Not too much will be done to the project for awhile cuz im starting a new job and not sure what kinda hours im working and i dont really have a place to do the project. but i am definitely excited to get this going

neat project, never knew they made an S10 "SS". looks like it's the same color as my monte carlo too

to figure out if the engine is a 305 or a 350, there should be eather a "5.0" or a "5.7" stamped on the block, i think towards the back.

also, you should check into if the trans is really a 700R4 or if it could be a 200R4. i don't know the differance, except the 200R4 is not as bullitproof or as desirable as the 700R4

Looks like the Engine is eithe rout of a Truck or Van,so probly 350,and the Trans would most likely be a 700R4 if out of a truck or Van. unless you are pulling a laod woth the truck or actually somehow getting it to hookup to the pavement,i dont think u should be worried about what trans it is...lol youll have enough power to burn the tires and too little of weight to hurt the trans.
