Welcome to the Forum Car 54!  I think you need to be a little more specific as to what you need for this kit.  Are you referring to plug wires or paint?  Specific detailing?  Please help us to help you!  

The link you supplied shows a kit that may have been assembled using pieces that the builder may have had on hand or decided that he needed for his vision of the completed kit.

If you have this kit, then the parts for the engine are in the kit.  The engine is not blown, but has a high rise manifold and dual carbs.  The builder in the link you supplied has added plug wires to the engine and made the modifications he described.  Adding plug wires to your model is fairly easy to do and all you need is a pin vise and drill bits with some thin wire.  Good luck!
