So now I'm kicking around the idea of selling my 61 buick station wagon but its a tough sell because it doesn't run and it doesn't have the original engine. The first suspicious thing was the "Dauntless Jeep" stickers on the valve covers which might not mean much but After further investigation, I noticed that the driverside exhaust mount is facing forward and the exhuast was crudely welded and bent which is totally unnessessary for this car becuase it has plenty of room under the hood. The other thing i noticed is that the engine mounts seem hacked up. So it seems that at some point someone slapped a 225 v6 from a jeep in it. I don't know if this car originally had the aluminum v8 in it but it would be sad if it did. Anyway, thats the back story....the question now is, what would be a cheap engine option to throw in there and get it running again? I think putting a buick engine back in there will help sell it if I decide to sell it and obviously a running car is better. I don't think the engine mounts or anything else have been altered beyond repair.
