I'm not a huge wagon guy but man this is a nice one. Not a gack green with fake wood look trim with green interior, like a few of the 70's cars. I say a 301 Turbo block stroker build with SEFI, 2004R and 8.5" or 9" Ferd rear would be cool😎. I agree, selling as is should bring good money, the G body high prices are finally here, especially the mint ones like this.
Very cool, that’s a well loaded wagon. Power windows but manual locks?
I think the LS swap appeals to more people, if done right, but you probably won’t make any money on it that way, if selling leave it as is it will appeal to the most people who want to keep it OG or modify to their liking. Definitely would keep the body/interior as is or just restore what needs restoring then have fun with the drivetrain and/or suspension.
I think it boils down to the guy doing the work. An LS swap will definitely up the fun & reliability factor if done legitimately. A hacked job won't do that but a decent install by someone who has done a few LS retrofits (or has access to someone that has) can be a strong selling point.
A boosted set-up would indicate this isn't his first rodeo. I look forward to see how it turns out.
