Is it possible to put my LT1 engine
& auto tranny from my 94 camaro
into a 1962 Olds F-85 ?

Sure, it is possible. Shops do 'resto-mods' all the time. In addition to possibly modifying the engine mounts, you will need to incorporate part of the wiring harness and computer for the engine. It will be a lot of work.

Thank for the info.


My old shop put one in a 63 Olds once, it was a hassle with the electronics, making mounts and redoing the exhaust, then there was reworking the speedometer, the tranny we had used electronic speed sensor, if i remember right we used an earlier sensor that had the cable feed through the sensor. Been a long time.
