I am interested in finding out the value of a forged steel 302 crank, large journal, standard main and rod journals. Casting number 1178?
Has anyone purchased such a beast lately?

No, it's not worth much but since it's taking up space in your garage I'll get it out of your way. I've seen them sell for anywhere from $300 to $600 depending on what condition and if it has been turned or not.

This is one of those deals where you need to find the right person to buy it. One of my machinists has a brand new one sitting at the shop that he bought years ago. We are thinking of building a repo. 302 out of it. We also scrounged up a brand new set of ancient BRC 302 pistons to go along with it. If you are going to try to sell yours, I would suggest taking it to a machine shop and have it magnafluxed to make sure there are no cracks. Personally, I would not buy a used crank of any type without the guarantee of my money back if it would not pass magnaflux inspection. If you have it done ahead of time it will probably make it more attractive. I would also bet that if you find the right "maniac" restoring a real 302, you could probably get anywhere from $300 on up for it.
Hope this helps,
