I have TWO/2 Brand New 1979 LS7 crate engines FOR SALE. The block casting # 361959, they have 990 heads and date code 79. These engines are still in the factory crates. They have been stored inside, but they do need to be DISASSEMBLED, CLEANED and some parts replaced. According to the gentleman that I purchased them from they were to be disassembled and the finish machine work needs to be done before they were to be used even from the factory. I removed one cylinder head from one engine to inspect the cylinders for damage. There is some light surface rust in them. I do believe that they can be honed and reassembled without boring. There are no serial numbers on the passenger side block pad as they were never installed in a vehicle. So if you are doing a resto you can stamp them to be a numbers matching engine.
Please ask any question that you have. I will do my best to answer them. I have provided a few pics to show them as they are. These engines are for sale AS IS. I know what the value of them is. So please do not try and tell me other wise. If you think you are going to get them for nothing you are sadly mistaken. I "DO NOT" have to sell them. So please be serious about you inquiries.
Engines are located in Burley Idaho. They can be transported to with in Idaho, Southern California, Nevada and Arizona for a nominal fee, as I travel to these states on a regular basis. I can also work something out to transport them to Oregon, Washington, Utah, Western Montana. They can also be shipped as they are in the factory crates, Shipping will be the responsibility of the buyer. I will help with getting them to a local shipper or loading on a truck from where they are located.
