I purchased my GT-E from an individual near Winnipeg, Manitoba, without the original engine or transmission. The previous owner of the individual I bought from, said he got it from a wrecking yard up north with motor and trans already gone and a lot of other stuff stripped (expensive GT-E stuff, I might add). This was in the early 80's.
I was told the wrecking yard was in Flin Flon, way north of Winnipeg(874 km per googlemaps).
My VIN is 8F91W555445. If anyone up north knows of an engine assy or heads or a C6 trans case with my partial VIN originally stamped in them, please send me a pm.
Also, my Marti indicates that the dealer was:
Manning Mercury LTD in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
I googled them but did not get any info. If anyone has any info or history on the dealership, please forward it to me.
