Got a Sport Sedan for $0. What’s next? TURBO LS
First off, I’d like to give thanks for the add. I will now probably be using this forum A LOT as I embarking in a new project of mine. I recently got a 1960 Sport Sedan for absolutely nothing. Literally nothing. It had been sitting in my grandmothers yard for around 17 years since my grandfather had passed and she asked if I wanted the car. If not, it was going to be sent to the yard. Of course I took up on that offer and am now just trying to get it back on the road. Original 283 car with AC 61,000 miles on the odometer. Car is straight as an arrow and no rust at all besides some old school bondo in the lower part of one quarter panel. The interior is shot though due to the drivers window being down for years. That’s okay in my book though! Because this car soon will be bleeding with boost. The big plan is to budget turbo LS swap it since I’m getting ready to begin college within the next few months and will be short on money. I’m fine with just swapping first and adding boost later. Just need more power for cheap and want to show these people who spend so much on their cars up and see their faces when an almost 60 year old turd beats them in the quarter mile. I will need as much help as possible and will be using this forum almost every step of the way I bet. My question is, is there anyone who has LS swapped a 1960 in the forum? If so, how hard was it to fit, what rear end was swapped, etc? Just throwing this out there so I can kind of get an idea of where I’m going to be at. Thanks.
