    My husband did a 62 with a full drivetrain out of an 86 GN. It’s a baby GN. Full Buick all the way!

    A guy on our block had a 4726 hemi in his street race car. When he wrecked the car, he put it in his moms old Lancer-(Valiant). He would see other cars and tell folks “I bet I could beat that with my mom’s Valiant”.
