OK, let me try this again....

Dave, I might just do this.  However, by "Plain Jane" I assume you mean 2 bbl lo-po motor.  No problem, but 440s go for more than do 383s, even 383 HPs.  So, how would we deal with this?

Theres a guy here with a '73 318 outta p/u truck complete good running engine for 100 bucks, maybe you could find soemthing like that, it'd move that Newp, but not fast, if that matters. Me i don't care about fast any more... at least it'd allow you to keep the vert and get better than 10 mpg.

Any car with a clean title for $100 is worth purchasing. Heck, you could scrap it for more than that, but why scrap a Mopar, right?
