cheep car as in any make model?

you can put your motor in anything with the right fab skills and time. but the easiest way would be to find another mazda with the same motor and just swap them.

if you want to put the mazda motor in something other than a mazda then you'll have to swap wiring harness and all kinds of other things than just the engine and trans.

is the body really that bad? if your just looking for a beater DD, get a come-a-long and park near a tree, and straighten the body out some, then no need to buy another beater that will have more issues, and have to go through a bunch of work making it drivable

If your going to be working on it either way, why bother spending the money on another beater car?
