I get what you are saying...I just don't operate that way.

'

For all we know, someone gave him bad info on what # to ask when he was seeking value on other sites so best we all chill a bit as it really has nothing to do w/ any of us also foolish comments could alter the outcome in a negative way.
Again, let's hope he's a real car guy at heart also comes around when all facts considered.

I think cooler heads would’ve prevailed after just a little bit of time but the name calling has now probably separated car & motor by nothing short of a galaxy. If that motor was in my possession I’d sink it in a lake after reading this thread.

and this was my second thought on the matter…

I really think it adds appeal to this car in general knowing the motor still exists. That’s luck and good news in it’s own right. There is a big difference between it being known it’s out there vs the mystery of DOES it still exist.

There is just no place on this site for GREED...slice it anyway you want to...but 50K is WRONG. Chaulk it up to bad advice...but in the end it’s still up to him to make it right. After paying 20k....and all the work after the purchase you have 30k wrapped up easily. Time will calm the mind ..we all hope.

Basically a "rebuilt" never fired longblock .030 over with incorrect sheet metal and unknown cam and pistons. Aftermarket rockers. Correct intake.

Gentlemen, there is no place for personal attacks and name calling. Lets keep your opinions and passions in check. I may edit posts that have crossed the line.
