Got it home today and I am pretty happy. Everything is super clean, pulled the valve covers and its spotless. Exhaust ports look great and the cylinder walls look good.

This thing is truly ready to run. I just need to put the correct pan on it.

I ended up paying $2000 for it which included a brand new engine stand (not the cheap harbor freight one either).

The back story is it was bought by the owner of Padington's Pizza for a truck he was building. He was well known in the community for the quality cars that he owned. He unfortunately passed away and the engine sat in the heated garage with all of his things. His wife decided to enlist her son in law to start selling things and this engine was in the lot of things.

I offered 1500 and he wouldn't take it. So we went back and forth and stuck at 2000. I am happy with the price for what it is and everything it includes.

I am going to start another thread on cam swap possibilities

If you bought a roller block used for like $400, and had it machined and bored and new pistons, etc - you'd have a forty over block and at least $2k in it, especially if you re-used those heads and had them re-done. So you did very fine on this at $2k.

I think I'd leave the heads on, but put on a new water pump and thermo-stat, looks like you may swap cams so that is a good time for that stuff anyway.
