Well if you paid $300 & you made a little off it then you missed a zero in your post cause you said you sold it for $50..... $500 is fair....
I just saw that! haha...I meant I sold it for $450. Yeah $50 would be giving it away.
340 seem to be hot right now, especially a date code correct one. so I agree with 1 Wild R/T on the price, even a little more if someone absolutely has to have one for their 69/70 car.
I grabbed the 340 last year because they are hot and I figured I might like to do a small block E body project someday. It's out of a 69. I'm a little hesitant to sell it since they are getting harder to find but I really wouldn't mind some extra space. I told him I will throw it on a stand and remove the pan for a few pictures. He offered me $600 for the engine but there is no way I'd let it go that cheap.
For some reason, he doesn't want the other stuff like heads, intake, adjustable rockers, bell housing, motor mount plates, etc but I can easily truck those to the next show and get my money out of them or sell the lighter items on here.
Thanks for the replies guys.
