i bought a new project, its a '75 fresno, in my opinion its pretty cherry, as in looks like its all original and all there..
it has a blown up 455 olds and im torn on what to do. should i replace the 455 or change to something more common?
would the boat be worth more if kept original or does it even matter? i have a lead on a cheap low mile olds out of a car that i could through in there real quick but im afraid if i do that, it either wont last long or end up costing me mega bucks down the road. right now it would be the cheapest thing to do in order to get it on the water.
i am going to be using this boat as a lake boat, needs to be pretty reliable, and of coarse i would like it to be somewhat fast but that is not top priority..
its 19.6' seems to be a fairly heavy layup, quarter stringer, berk 12jb.
