Runner, not a project! Car is daily driven at over 70mph in rush hour traffic on I88
M2 swap done right, inspected by local weld shop. Goes straight down the road. 350 is from late 70's truck I believe, starts easy & runs well.
Great "survivor" original exterior/patina. Does need light bodywork but wouldn't take much to clean up and paint, very solid body for year/style - I shipped here from Oregon. I enjoy driving as-is, car oozes character and I've never passed another one around stock or otherwise.
Well received by rat rod crews, hot rod crews, and esp. normal folks whose parents or grandparents owned one.
Don't expect perfect - needs bodywork, a bit of rust - but very solid & rare S22 example with spendy, unique modifications.
