That thing certainly looks as if it was beaten like a redheaded stepchild!

What's the config? Auto? Manual?

I don't know of any numbers other than the VIN on the J-body cars. I've been all over mine, and haven't seen anything else. What are you trying to find out? What legal issues are you worried about?

What are your plans for it? Just going with an Eco from a similar car, or going with something different?

Well in my country there are some regulations and inspections for prevent stolen cars to roll arround, i dont want to trhow my money in something ilegal

My plans is to revive the thing, do a little mix of parts for the exterior from early cavy to some late stuf; in the engine a friend has a 2.2 from a 96...

The goal is a nice and confy daily

Thx for the reply im more secure now

You don't want to do this. The electronics are not compatible with your car. You would have to rewire half the vehicle for it to work. Although the engine displacement is the same, the engines share nothing in common, and neither do the electronics.

Find yourself an engine from an 03-05 Cavalier or Sunfire. They're not that hard to come by in most areas.
