We talk about junkyard LS engines all the time around here, and I’ve personally had LS powered vehicles with nearly 300,000 miles on them. Hell, one of them gave up it’s engine for one of Richard Holdener’s Big Bang projects and made over 1,400 horsepower on the original rods, pistons, rings, bearings, and crankshaft, with over 279,000 miles on them. So let’s say you find a 250,000 to 300,000 mile Silverado that runs and drives but could use some love. Is it worth fixing it up a bit in order to make it into a nice driver?

In this video from Project Farm, he’s going to take his analytic approach to deciding what is worth fixing up and what isn’t. I think you can save a lot of vehicles, if I didn’t I wouldn’t be a hot rodder, but that doesn’t mean they are always a smart project. So what do we think?

Let’s watch the video and see what his conclusions are and how that fits with what we, as hot rodders, think.

Video Description:

Most people get rid of vehicles well before 300,000 miles, often times due to concerns about reliability. So, let’s go through a vehicle that has over 300,000 miles on it from top to bottom and front to back to prepare this vehicle for another 100,000 reliable miles! Includes rust repair, front end rebuild, complete tune up, axle hub bearing replacement, fluid changes, new brakes and rotors, front end alignment, headlight bulb replacement, MAF sensor cleaning, tensioner pulley bearing replacement, fan clutch replacement, axle seal replacement, and A/C freon level check.

I purchased all of the parts and supplies used for this vehicle. So, thank you for supporting the channel!
