Dilemma.. How bad do you want the Spyder ? Enough to get a title? That is
your answer. If not enough, make the 62 four door into a Spyder clone with 4
dr... Be neat. You have memories, car will be fun and quick enough.. O
course, having said that, I only recently really started liking four

Good luck. Let us know and why.

Subject: <VV> What would you do?

My situation is that I have a 62 four door running a 164 inch engine with a
(yet again) blown Powerglide. This is the second PG in this car and, quite
frankly, I am thoroughly sick of PGs. They have never run well in this car.
The interior is perfect, but the exterior is in poor condition from sitting
out for some time. The car will need a complete paint job.
I also have a 64 Spyder with a blown engine, rotted interior, bad paint,
very little rust (just a couple of spots at the rear fenders), and cracked
windshield. No clean title.
So here are my options:
1. Remove 164 inch engine from 62 and install in the Spyder to get it
running. (I have the original 145 inch engine from 62 that I can
reinstall).2. Remove the running gear from the Spyder and install in the 62
to create a four-door Spyder.
I'm on the fence with this because I'm not certain which is going to give me
the most bang for the buck (I'm not thinking monetary buck, but rather most
enjoyment). Certainly, putting the 164 inch engine in the Spyder would
relatively easy and keep a fairly limited model on the road (though it would
be a pain to get a clean title). The clean up and complete "restoration" of
the Spyder would be time consuming and expensive.
The transfer of running gear to the 62 would be time consuming, not
expensive, and I would end up with a some what unique car - that finally
runs. Also, I am more attached to the 62 because of what was going on in my
life at the time I bought it.
I also have a 65 Monza four-door that has a four-speed. I could scrap the 62
four-door and the 64 Spyder and just enjoy the 65 four-door (it needs a
little TLC, but nothing like the other cars).
So, what are your thoughts and opinions. I would really like to know because
I continue to vacillate on this.
