The original engine was machined wrong during a failed rebuild by the previous owner. It was not worth rebuilding, so I am upgrading to a 3.9-liter to be built this winter by Mark LaGrue at D&D Fabrications North of Detroit.
I bought a ZF 4-speed automatic in England that came from a V-8 powered Sherpa van, so it fits right on to the 3.9-liter engine, no mods needed.
The body is being fixed and painted this fall.
She'll be better than new when I am done.
