I don’t believe this engine is still available.
How complete is it? Because it has known history and if you can trust the friends father I think
$800 is a steal. Now if it isn't complete things like carb, intake, pulley's, etc. will add up fast.
That's a Steal. Go for it before he changes his mind.I went and looked at the engine this afternoon and went for a ride in the car. He says it will be a complete unit as the Ls he is getting is a complete unit. His son and my grandson have been best friends since kindergarten. They are both juniors in high school now. He doesn't want it just sitting around once he pulls it. He is an all out gearhead and does volunteer work on cars for people. He was at one time a shop teacher at the local high school.
That's what I call paying it forward. Some day your grandson will get a chance to do the sameWe went over and paid for the engine tonight. He will pull the engine this weekend. He said if it was anybody but his sons best friend he would have been asking $2000-2500 for it. My grandson was so excited he was shaking when he handed over the money. It just goes to show there are good people out there who don't believe money is everything. His next major project will be getting an overdrive transmission.
