Any American station wagon from the early 60s with an LSX swap offered for $5,000 would normally be categorized as a scam...unless it was some kind of rat rodded pile of rust or perhaps the swap was incomplete...which is what we have here today. The seller admits that it does have some small rust spots, but the interior looks great, the paint is okay, it hasn't been bagged or bashed into a tree...
According to the seller, the project was started about 2 years ago, but stalled for whatever reason and now what's left is:
I left off when I was getting to wiring the motor up. fuel system is plumbed & running, fresh brake lines were plumbed - I think I they were bled. engine & trans are in and mounted with nice soft factory mounts. Rear end is in with new shocks. driveshaft is in. Trans needs the trans cooler mounted & the lines finished off for it + filled. Engine needs wiring - the battery was relocated to the trunk - the large gauge wire needs to be sized & bolted to the starter. The steering column needs to be wired in. The engine wiring harness has already been cut down to the standard no-emissions stand-alone style harness used in older hotrods. ECU is there - needs to be mounted, I don't remember if we flashed VATs off of it or setup the normal non-emissions tune on it yet. Need to plumb an intake and exhaust. the gas pedal that came with the car was a hinge and a piece of metal... it'll need a new one and a throttle cable. It will also need an alignment.
