Dear Jay,

I have a 1969 opel gt its tubbed and tubed it weighs in at 1721lbs with the motor. The car is built to have a 350sbc, it has a 6.34 8 and 3 quarter Chrysler rear.

What engine and trans combo would you sugggest we use under a tight budget? I also forgot to mention its an 8th mile car.

I would suggest a SBC that fits your budget and a Powerglide transmission

Thank you for your questions,

Jay Roeder
