I just bought a 1962 F-85 wagon. Parts for these cars are virtually unobtainable new or repro, so get used to scrounging for decent used parts. Even normal replacement parts (ball joints, for example) are extremely expensive from NAPA and other usual sources. NOTHING interchanges with the newer (1964-up) cars, so don't waste your time.

The only good thing is that the aluminum 215 is a direct predecessor to the Rover engines used through 2006. That means that a 4.6 liter Rover motor bolts right in.

Engine parts are available from D&D Fabrications in Michigan. SMS sells upholstery. That's about it.

These cars rarely sell, so the worth depends on whether or not you can find a seller who wants it. I'm strongly against the unimaginative Chevy engine swap, but it's your call. You have an unusual car and want to install a belly-button drivetrain. ZZZZZZZZ.....

Plan on a custom rear axle to support that swap, as the rear suspension is different from that of other GM midsize cars and there is no bolt-in axle upgrade.
