    I own one! Of course mine hasn't run since the 70s. It seems it overheated and warped the head. I've also got a 66 classic with the same 232 motor with over 230k miles and that runs like a dream! Once you get the bags into the truck there is a good amound of room.. the truck extends to the sides of the car.. just the opening is small.. but its far from tiny! "lack of an AMC small-block V8 at the time" AMC never had a small block.. and the 290-401 motors all were the same size so fitting one in place of another was never and issues if you beefed up the body. I have a 68 Javelin which replaced the Marlin in AMC's line-up. Its no doubt a far cleaner style and the sales numbers reflect this. I still love the rear of the Marlin!

    Early BMW X6?

  • Ajla There is inventory on the ground but as pointed out it is generally high dollar trims of high-dollar models and at least around here dealers still aren't budging off their mandatory nitrogen tires and Summer weather protection packages.You aren't paying '21-'22 prices anymore but it's still a long way to go.

  • Sobhuza Trooper Drop a good, high-strung German engine in this and you'd have American flair with German repair costs!
  • Kwik_Shift I'll just drive my Frontier into the ground as planned. Possibly find an older "fun" car to collect.
  • Lorenzo The solution is so simple: if the driver shifts into neutral without applying the parking brake, the horn sounds and lights flash until the parking brake is applied. After the third time, the driver should be insulted by a voice saying, "Shouldn't your wife be driving?", or "Where did you get your license - Dollar Store?"
