It ran great for the 14years the person I bought it from had it but it’s running rough now. Chasing that down and then after I get it running well again, need a new wing and off to the body shop and then it should be ready to go.
Running rough could be caused by many different things. Maybe all it needs is a good thorough tune-up (plugs, wires, cap, rotor), fuel filter replacement, vacuum leak fix, etc. Once you get her you can do the appropriate inspection in determining what's the deal.

How did you know it doesn't have the original engine? Did the previous owner tell you or was there some other way that you found out?

The thought just dawned on me since we're talking about tune-up. Timing gun, do they even make those anymore?
