I have the opportunity to buy a 1985 Fuego with a stuffed engine quite cheap. The current owner has been given a price of $2500 to rebuild it but has decided to buy something else and off load the car. I want to put a second hand running engine in it just as daily transport but he reckons that i can`t put just any Fuego engine in it, it must be an `85 model engine as a direct replacement.
Can anyone shed any light on this matter? If getting an engine is going to be a hassle i won`t bother buying it but if i can fit any 2ltr Fuego engine in it then i will.
Oh by the way, anyone want to sell a Fuego engine in Adelaide? I wish they were as simple as my R10S!!!

Thanks for your help froggers,
