I like how it sits, nice wheels and a little custom going on.  Nice looking 520!

Charlie69 Sir, thank you, how have you been and do you think its worth putting a a14 motor in the 520, what you think the best option is in your option.

I went L20B automatic in my 66 520.  It was a lot of work to get it to fit how I wanted.  I would definitely go A14 with a 5 speed.  Not sure of availability of parts for the A14.  Check out the parts availability before deciding on a swap. 

 

This migh help some.

If you can get the 92 horsepower A14 it would be a great upgrade.
