Up for sale is my 1987 Chrysler Town & Country station wagon. It has a complete 2005 Dodge Neon SRT-4 swap done to it (motor, transmission, suspention, brakes, and everything little in between). The swap has just over 70,000 miles on everything. The car is equipped with a factory stage 2 tune w/ toys (intercooler sprayer, dial a boost, and 100+ octane mode). The car has newer tires on it (toyo proxes), a new battery, new tie rod, new pcv valve, new spark plugs, new thermostat (180*), bigger front mount intercooler, 30/20 boost gauge, custom full 3" exhaust, vacuum lines redone, custom catch can.

I have everything to do the charge pipe mode but haven't done it yet (gets rid of the 1.3" restrictive part on the pipe and makes it 2.5" reduced to 2").

2.4L Turbo
5-Speed Manual

The Bad (mostly all cosmetic issues):

1.) Car needs alot of TLC in the interior (misc. cracked trim pieces, sagging headliner, cig lighter doesn't work, and other random little things... a day at the junkyard to fix these issues would greatly improve the interior).
2.) Window has a small chip/crack in it (it's been like that for a few years and hasn't been an issue other than cosmetic).
3.) Paint is faded (mainly on the hood, but what do you expect for a 26 year old car).
4.) Wood trim could use a light sand and a light coat to protect it.
5.) Has a small boost leak at the stock bov and on the stock intercooler hose ($30-$40 fix for stock replacements)
6.) 1 tire needs to be replaced ($150 installed), 1 tie rod need to be replaced ($20), and an alignment ($70-$80)
7.) Car has some rust near the back wheel wells but it isn't too bad for it's age and location.
8.) Car currently has a restrictive flowmaster muffler on it (I have a 3" non-restrictive magnaflow muffler to be swapped).

With the muffler swapped, the 2 boost leaks fixed, the tire/tie rod/alignment done, and a DSP U7134... This car should be right around 300WHP.

I could possibly fix the tire/tie rod/alignment issue, the boost leak issue, and the muffler issue depending on the right price.

This wagon is one of a kind and very unique.

I'm open to serious offers and I might consider trades depending on what it is.

If something with wood paneling lit me up, I would just take the next left turn into a tree.

I had a 1990's Dodge Caravan pull up next to me on the highway. The passenger cupped his hand to his ear like, "Let's hear it!" I laughed, revved it anyway, and then he pointed as if to say, "GO!" Well... no other cars, in Mexico, etc., so I gave them a show.

Until that fucking van blew past me and made noises I didn't think were possible.

Yep. Hemi swap with 400+ WHP.

Love sleepers. Looking at a Volvo 242 right now to do this. I want to drive it cross-country stock, then drop a vette engine in it.

There are a good number of Volvo/V8 swaps.
