I might have a complete SBC conversion kit..... motor, radiator, etc..... complete..... for a Steal! I bought it... never developed. It's a runner, nothing special..... carbs, etc. But pulled complete from a running car.

NO CAR... just V8 complete kit.

..... if you are interested, PM me.

Good luck.

True, but $16k I personally think is pretty much the limit for a carburated SBC conversion....unless it has some really trick modifications.

LS motor brings the money....so not shocked it didn't go past $16k.

^^ really? I can't imagine why. It's a fun conversion car to own (having had one myself), but kinda an outdated option as far as water conversions go.

I have one, ready to roll, but you're going to have to dig a little deeper. 509 HP at the crank.

The reason that the Rob Simpson car went for so much was it was an original car with original paint from the father of Chevy 914-8s I saw that car a number of times and it was clean. I saw that car at Rod’s house in West Los Angeles. In comparison Renegades cars have some trickier stuff but there was nothing wrong with Rod’s kits.
A clean Renegade car sorted out will go for a lot of money if you can find one. If these high performance drive lines are put on rusty or not correctly repaired bodies the torque will twist the car apart. The CVs are the week spot and the 1st gear, No rubber laying here or broken CVs and 901 gearboxes.
