If anyone is looking fot some inexpensive V-8 conversion parts, I was in Las Vegas this weekend and found a 914 conversion in a pick & pull wrecking yard. The car still had the V-8 block and heads with the (tailshifter) transmission mounted. Sorry, I don't know American iron so couldn't tell you if it was a Chevy ot Ford. The radiatot and all connecting pieces were also still there. The car had standard 4-bolt wheels so nothing special there.
Fot a trip to Vegas and some labot someone could get a good start toward their V-8 conversion. Hint: Get the parts first, then go to the casinos.
