WEll I just came across a motor for sale and not sure what to do, this retired doctor is selling a 427 bbc, roller motor, eagle rotating assembly, roller rockers, edelbrock dual plane intake, he wants 3,000.00, says he has 6,000.00 in it. The big question i have is he says he had the motor built for his sons 68 camaro, they dropped it in and drove it for a few months and he said he didnt like the extra weight on the front end of the car, then he took it out and put a 383 stroker in it. The guy has money so its no biggy for him to change motors at a drop of a dime. The guy told me that the motor has sat in is garage for the last TEN YEARS!!!!!!! it has about 2,000 miles on it. I dont like the fact that it has been sitting for ten years!!, I havnt seen the motor, but he tells me that it is not an original 427(60's) its a 1987 or so 454 block with eagle rotating assembly and either I beam or H beam rods, he cant remember. I know that if he didnt keep it covered and if he didnt have the spark plugs in it, it could develop rust in the cylinders from moisture, or water getting in , if it ever did sit outside. He told me the cam is a comp roller/ and comp lifter kit not sure what cam specs are. I looked up a gm short block crate 454 and its about 3,700.00 or so depending on where you get it, so I would like to hear what you guys think? he doesnt want to come down in price so im not sure about it.
