keep the motor- it is not a very valuable car, or desirable, or even good lookin' why put money into it? you will need a good bank account just to keep those headlights workin'

If you have a Formula, you might have a 350 instead of a 305. Either way, they are good engines and, if it is in running condition, I would keep it. As for the 24's - they might not fit real well on this body style.
