Another thing to consider, is that a majority of the L99 cars came with the tooth pick 7.5" 10 bolt. Lucky an 8.5" 10 bolt from an L99, 9C1, or any LT1 powered B-body will bolt right in, with the LT1 driveshaft. If the L99 car is a nice car, clean, and decent price, I would buy it. You can always pull the L99, and drop a LT1 in. It's as if you were pulling the motor, painting it, and dropping it back in. Everything will bolt right up.
I have been tempted to look for an L99 Caprice as a driver. I have never even driven one. Al of the ones I have are LT1 cars.
