It’s a really good thing I didn’t see your ad before the Challenge. The Volvo doesn’t look very comfortable to sleep in.

willing to proceed slighly lower. and start removing parts( wheels. seat ,steering wheel, ENGINE )  for 2019$ reasons. with receipts. 

if you wanna motor swap it engine and trans can come out.  save even more monies. 

long term plan was to junkyard 5.3 swap it.. pretty easy. and fits well. 

willing to add some spares and  nice parts and cam shaft for a bit more.

 

need it gone. come at me bro. $$
