...here in town at the local repair shop. Its an '87 year, I think he said, out of a Corvette. Complete from bottom up but no wiring or computer as they stay in the car. The engine started knocking so they got another replacement for it and now the "bad" engine sits on a stand. Enter me... I asked how much and the shop owner thought $500. I told him () I see them on eBay, complete motor with the harness and computer for $500. Plus the traveling fees add extra to that depending on where the motor is. He told me to think it over and get back with him. He sounds like he will take less, so, what do you guys think? What is a knocking 'Vette engine worth? What would you pay for it even though you can rebuild it or use the top end on another motor. Are harnesses easy to come by for these motors? And computers, too? I'm thinking of starting at $250 for the whole thing and working up til he's happy with the amount.
