It's too bad my next car project is going to be a sleeper of some sort (though the idea of doing a Dekotora Econoline is taking root in my brain like an alien thought-control parasite), because otherwise I'd totally buy this thing. A '78 Mercury Bobcat wagon, already set up with narrowed 9" Ford rear, cage, etc. You even get a rebuildable 351W and a C6, and all for $1800! Once again we learn that taking on someone else's partially-finished project is a real money-saver.
