I have an opportunity to purchase an 88 Fox wagon with a very good body...
Considering transplanting the engine from my 82 Rabbit, which I've been told
is actually out of a Dasher because of the oil pan.  Many of the mechanicals
look the same.  But the Fox is a 4 speed, and the rabbit a 5 speed.  I would
appreciate any thoughts folks here might have on such a swap.  Thanks.  Joe
