I started thinking about this after seeing El Rivinado’s post about swapping a 2.0l EcoBoost into a 60's Falcon. Over the years I’ve had all kinds of weird swap ideas, most (but not all) of which are both impossible to carry out and/or make sense to absolutely no one. Things like:
- In high school, I wanted to swap a VR6 into my Chevy Celebrity
- Cummins Challenger or Charger (like the Charger in the above video)
- two words: Rotary Festiva
- a Ranger 4-cylinder and manual transmission into an early 90's Explorer
Like I said, it makes no sense.
What I’d really REALLY love to do, though, is find an old AMC Spirit-based AMX (or, even better, the weird Hornet/Concord-hatchback-based one) and swap out whatever wheezy boat anchor engine it had with a late 90's-early 2000's Jeep inline 6.
So, Dr. Moreau, what hideous monster would you end up creating?
