When did the economics of parting cars become so bad? There…
Now this more our style. Yes it’s expensive at $20,000 but it’s less than a 1/10th of the motor swapped e30 M3 that was for sale earlier this week for $224,000. Mostly because this M3 is fitted with a 6.0L LS2 out of a 2006 GTO. Yes, Its an 88 e30 M3 with an LS2, but its only $20,000…
And for $20k you get a lot of car. It looks to be rebuilt from the ground up – like put on a rotisserie, cleaned, blasted, all rust cut out, welded and built backup. The underside and wheel wells were coated with rust bullet and Evo front fenders were added. If that wasn’t enough work, that small little 6.0L LS2 was set back 4″ from the normal BMW engine mounting location to help weight displacement.
