I'm surprised you haven't had more offers to buy it! It is a killer car. I would make the journey out to get it if you decided to sell it

Funny enough I ran across this old thread: http://ratrodsrule.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38228

Was it foreshadowing?

Honestly, $700 for the adapter, while outrageous, doesn't sound like such an amount to go around searching for a different engine. If you were to try save cost on that, you could easily spend as much to get a different good-running engine. The nailhead would make for some fun "what the heck" reactions when you lift the hood.

I agree with your point snopro. Just a quick look see shows that a good engine and trans combo will be more then the adapter.
I will just have to start squirrling away what i can.
The first priority is a windshield.
Actually i have had a few people sniffing around it already LB
IF i decide it has to go I will give you first shot at it.😎
As usual the first thoughts are the ones we come back to. I really want to use the nail head. Lets call it ď Diamonds and rustĒ. My favorite Joan Baez song.

Started my day at 7 a.m. sitting on the floor next to the bed.
No injuries. Took about 45 minutes for me to figure out how to get up. Small space and nothing to grab onto.
The day went up from there.
My brother showed up with a brand new shiny title. IT's tends to be a PITA to get a title for a car like this. The fact that he did I'm taking as a sign....
We went through the car. And despite the looks it is very complete.
All of the really $$$ and hard to find rocker trim pieces were there. As well as what ever they took/cut out of the engine bay.Good stuff.
Keep on keeping on...
