I bought this from a Marlin ‘collector’ (I think he had 5) who had owned it for over 20 years. He needed money to put into his Marlin drag car. He hadn’t driven it daily for about 10 years but it ran and needed minor body work.
Plans for this Vehicle
For now it’s a cool cruiser so it’s hard to shut it down for upgrades but eventually want to do….....some simple: electronic ignition, fuel injection…....some not as simple: overdrive, air ride, 8.8 rear diff w/ disc. I am supposed to do an engine swap for a guy sometime down the road. I will end up with the bad engine and misc out of a ‘90 Suburban. I’ll probably use the TBI and 700R4. Not into cross-breeding engines so plan on adapting these to the original 327. It’s an impressive engine.
