So, I ran across this old car, needs some work. I believe it has what's called a "short block?"
Parts may be hard to find. Nice fall colors, however.

I think you ran across a donor car that somebody used to restore another one with. :)

It is a long way to China ,but you could help it on it's trip with a front loader. And it appears to even have the kitchen sink.

I think you have more to work with than the person who ended up with this car after I loaded it. I set it on a pickup bed on a truck already loaded and the side of the bed collapsed and it rolled off the other side. Picked it up over there, set it back on the pickup and the other side of the bed collapsed and over it went again. Third time I used my loader to jam it into the pickup and held it while the trucker chained it down. It once was a Dodge Aspen, now a ???

Looks like a perfect project car to me. A little buffing, a little polishing and you're ready to go cruising :)

That inline 6 would make a great 3pt ballast, just be careful that it doesn't flip your tractor over backwards!!
