    I didn’t really like the Crossfire, so I don’t really care that this one is LS swapped. I never quite understood who Crossfire was for, it was to girly to be man’s car, and to ugly to be appealing to the women.

      Your comment had e snorting coffee this morning. I was always wondering too, although I liked the idea of a two-seater sports car.
      Jeff Z had some good thoughts also. If this is what you want, get a nice one and an engine with a known history and go for it.
      If anybody does this mod let me know so I can come get a ride in it.

    Wow… dented door, non working a/c, and a motor with unknown mileage? You’d be better of buying a working, low mileage, stock Crossfire for $6K and just enjoying it…

      It’s not just not working, it’s not even all there, and I doubt there’s even physically room for a compressor.

    Someone once said, “There’s an a$$ for every seat.”
    To someone out there, this Crossfire is worth more than their first born. To others, we wouldn’t even let our kids look at it.

    I get it.. it’s a Mercedes/Mopar mashup, with a half a$$ed Corvette/Truck engine swap.
    Someone had a blown motor in a crossfire, and a engine sitting around, and just decided to do it.
    Props.
    I’d be curious to drive it. See how it handles, and what it’s track times are like, compared to a C4, or a C5, just for shits and giggles, but the NO air conditioner, is a deal buster..
    It’s hard to look cool, sweating to death on a road trip, and no girl wants to dig her britches out of her swamp-a$$ butt crack..
    Makes taking her on a date awkward.
