Default Berger engine swaps

Are there any known cars from Berger that were modified/engine swapped at the dealership?

Hello Rick,

Your not thinking of "Switching Teams" on us going to a "Frameless World" are you? A Camaro would look out of place with all those beautiful Chevelle's you have. LOL

From what i remember owner asked if Berger Chevrolet was interested in it, and they referred him to Matt Murphy! Fell in his lap.

No Bill, not looking to get a Camaro, as I don't fit into them well.
Just wondering how many engine swaps may have been performed at Berger. The earliest owner of my Berger car has a story that may be interesting to track down........

Thumbs up Berger engine swaps

IMHO, the best looking hood for a 70.5 - 81 Camaro ever!
