Well i have been really thinking what i want to get as my next project. I know for sure i will get a truck when i get out of boot camp, cause i really want a 4 wheel drive. And i am really thinking about ditching the '71 chevy truck, so i want another car to work on. I want to get a CRX, but here in SoCal it will jsut get stolen again, and ill lose $$. I ahd thought about getting an old 240 but didnt really look into it. well i picked up an Autotrader mag yesterday and saw three for sale here. There was a '74 240, auto, runs really good, for $900, but needs some cosmetic work. then there was a 72, 4 speed, for $1500, runs good and had a lot of new parts. Also there was one that already had a roll cage and was fixed up for $2500, but i'd rather have a stock one. If i get one it'll get a V8 swap for sure, but not really sure if i wanna go with an auto tranny or a manual from a camaro or something. Just kinda wondering if these sound like reasonable prices, and what are some things to look for in these cars, any certain year that is better? whats the difference in the 260 and 240? Oh and whats a good source for the swap kits.
