I dont know if you know were pull-a-part is but they got a red daytona way in the back with a pretty good looking head on it think its even a g-head theres no casting numbers on it or were the "728" is on mine. Just a thought lol =p

Pull a Part is actually where I bought my Daytona and will be where I go looking for an engine if the head I have on my Daytona is screwed but it shouldn't be Mechanic said he thought the bottom end was but he wasn't sure without tearing it apart so basically Pull a Parts is a last resort since the engine in the Daytona already cost me 2500 and never got broke in I want to use as much of it as I can.

gonna be tearing the head off this weekend and seeing if there is any damage to the piston will know more when I get home Sunday and will let you know what it looks like or if I get it running. Expect the swap to take a few weekends once I see how everything is working. The cars are at my parents farm as it is much easier to lift engines with the tractor and they have concrete floors in the barns for less chance of contamination lol.

Lol. I can relate man. I'll post a picture of mine. Y'all let me know if there's any other pictures you'd like to see of it. I'm very glad to know there's other daytonas here in Oklahoma

Yours looks alot better than mine all faded and starting to rust. If it fits which console looks the same but seats etc they will be going in the daytona because its interior is ugly and pitiful. Will probably be custom making door panels bad.

Lol. Thank you? You can find the panels in the for sale section or post up in the wanted section. My exterior is peeled and faded, but the interior and motor are good. Let me know if you need help, tips or advice. It's going to be very rewarding once you get yours done
