    Red. Truck will be a 2 tone light silver top/bottom with dark metallic grey center with a 1/2" thick red pin stripe under the top chrome line. Red block will go with the stripe and 428 red fender emblems

    Twin stick might be ok if it works properly. Looks like a different connection than a 205 might have to modify it.

    just a stock motor? problem is these things are so old they are nearly impossible to find/ and in good shape. even if you find one keeping it a standard bore is hard as its probably toast. Keep in mind many 428's cant even be bored more than .030 as it will reach its limit. The one I'm getting is a fresh .030 bore with new cam bearings installed for 900$CND. Its a deal as the machine cost is worth that alone with pressing in bearings and boring. He bored it to match .030 cj pistons that he's throwing in for 100$. So I could find a stock 428 and then probably have to bore it anyway or just get one I know is good to go. Only problem is it doesnt have the stock balanced flywheel and my 390 one will have to be balanced to the complete assembly but not a problem. He says this block will go bigger than .030 if needed down the road for some reason for another build which is good piece of mind. By the way did you find a t case shifter yet. I seen a couple of them on ebay the other day.
