Hmmm. Interesting points on the swap guys. I too have mixed feelings. I am not a Ford man, in fact I like most forign cars over Fords but I have to say... A 32 Ford is a sweet ride. So is a Cobra. While the Cobra has a Ford driveline, it is not a Ford.
Well my point is, I love a 32 Ford. What a sweet ride. Not a highboy, I like a full bodied version. I would NEVER dream of putting a Ford engine in one. No not even a 460. Why? I just DON'T like fords.
Why is a mixed breed OK then?
I fix cars for a living, and I know how difficult they are to work on evem in stock trim. When I see a well done job like the Turbo Buick in the Cobra, I think to myself... "awesome". I mean really, think of all the time and effort and ingenuity that goes into a job like that.The craftsmanship and patience alone is worth a thumbs up. I put a Buick GN motor in an El Camino (actually 3 of them). It was basicly a drop in job. However, rerunning all the computer and the intercooler assembly and pipes was serious work. The finished product was a very rare one indeed. Something that made people say "wow".
If you like the looks of a coupe, and the perfomance capabilities of a Chevy engine, I say give it a go. When it is done, you will have more pride in the job as there are fewer of them running around set up like yours. We reap what we sow. Sow more;)
