Anybody have any thoughts as to how much ($$) one of these would go for ?
I know of one for sale and it may be worth a look, it's being sold out by an auctioneer as part of an estate.
Cheers

How long has that motor been sitting, was it oiled up before storage, and has been rotated regualry by hand to stop seizing, heard of plenty of stories of rebuilt motors that sit around, people buy them, put them in, to find them full of rust and needing a major rebuild to be useable.

You'd want a detailed list of parts in it and work done, a "Boss" engine could mean anything. Unless you have firm info, only trust what your eyes tell you looking at it. If you could get in touch with the builder it would help, unless of course the owner built it.

PS - reminder all, get a move on with your projects!

Thanks for your replies Fellas
Well this is as much as I know right now:
351 Copy Boss
Studded Windsor 351/Cleveland 4v Heads
4MAB Crank/Flat top pistons/ s/p rods
P Jackson geardrive
Roller Cam/Lifters/Rockers
Inlet manifold has 650 DP atop it now, but only needs throttle body for injection.
Comes with Gilmer Drive but no s/charger or dizzy.

This engine was running a blower (7 psi boost) and injection to (supposedly) achieve 650 hp on a dyno. It has been rebuilt very recently (less than 400 km I'm told) and was only pulled out of the vehicle 4 days ago. (The car is supposedly being sold with another engine so he could realise more for the engine) He wants $4500.
I'm taking my mechanic with me to check this out so I don't get ripped, but unfortunately I don't have cam specs etc yet. Oh, it's not part of an estate either, I mucked that bit up.
What do y'all think??
