Only if you count the time and effort it would take to pull it off as having no value. If you actually factored time in I'm sure he'd barely break even.

Depends on how you look at it. I personally would think of it as a great learning experience. If you did it more along the lines of a hobby, then sold it...

L67 swap....not a bad idea. I'll look into it. I don't car how much time it takes. I Blue Booked it at 1000. Like I said, the body and interior are perfecto. I'll get pics on asap. Buddy of mine might be working tomorrow, if he is I'll try and get over there. I should have this morning.

BTW, will a S1 upper intake manifold fit on a S2?

Oh. Darn. Are any of the S1 and S2 parts interchangeable?

No. Not many at all. Two different engines. Completely.

I suppose, if one had the time to do up a car as a hobby. I barely have time to to quick installs on my car, let alone the PITA that a full engine swap would entail.

I'm guessing the kid'* in school, maybe a part-time job, and household chores, hey if was his age again I'd jump on it.

Yes, I'm in school, very few chores, and no job, BUT, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays I have JROTC rifle practice and can't do anything. The rest of the week, I'm found in the shed, fixing stuff.

Well, the guy called a little while ago and decided not to buy the truck, but he knows a fella who is looking for one for a parts truck. He is supposed to call me tomorrow.
