That should be a great project. No feeling obliged to try and keep it pure. Put in a flat 4, flat 6, v8, v6 whatever and have fun. The rust is easily the worst thing about these cars, followed by balky fuel injection and "conservative" power. I have a Buick 215 sitting in my garage waiting for the right opportunity to put it in but the old 1.7 just keeps slugging along.
