That is one very cool car!! I would have expected a higher "Buy-It Now" price with that rare engine and the Super Duty parts that are included.

thanks for the link.Just need to move on,had a SD 4 speed auto transaxle for it and found out it could not be driven on the street so sold it now have to sell the rest of the package.If no action will pull the alu engine and put back on with the 326 engine.Tom

the ring and pinion were only good for 10 runs and the lowest gear avail was a 3.90.Nice plan but no good for the applicaion.I paid 15K for it!Found out it was a spool and not really driveable and the R&D to fab a diff. for it was just more than I wanted to get into.Not for the faint of heart!Tom

The Buy It Now is a good price for the engine alone.

OK,
Let me get this straight.
It's a Tempest Wagon that came from the Factory with a 326. Along the way, someone put in a Non Original Motor, a Very Rare Motor, but Non Original just the same.
Well done resto, Yep,
But Modified.
Is it worth the money, Sure. Couldn't build it for that.
But it is a Regular Tempest Wagon, in a Very common color for that year, and had a Rare Motor from who knows where put in.
Makes me think my wagon is Quite a Bargain.

Everything the Factory put in mine, is still in mine.
With the exception of the rear gear ratio.
The Tempest would have made a great stable mate.
