    Okay, so I got this gorgeous 79 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It had an almost new transmission in it, and then it broke down. I dunno what the mechanic said (blown piston or something?) but he said the engine can’t be rebuilt, and I’d need to replace the thing entirely. It’s an AMC 450. I’ve looked around, and nobody is selling anything close. I’ve looked at LS conversions, but I’m under the impression that I’d need to replace a lot more than just the engine to do that, and that’s not really an option. Is there some other more common engine I could put in it? I need something relatively cheap.

    Anyway, I don’t know a whole lot about any of the things I’ve researched. I’m just kinda going off what people are telling me, so if there’s any info about anything, that’d be really helpful.
