Hi . I'm new hope I'm doing this right. I have a 280C and it has been sitting for about 11 years. Motor is shot. Rust . Would like to put a Chevy or a Ford V8. anybody have any ideas with a swap? what motors work better?
The motor is rusty or the body of the car is rusty? What is your goal? Cheap hotrod? If the car is a rust bucket, don't put the effort into it. Find a doner car that isn't a rust bucket.
