I see a lot of I6 engines for sale locally (south east PA) and people want hundreds for them. I might pay up to $400 for a stock, running I6 engine if I had an I6 car that I was keeping original and it needed an engine...and I could hear the engine running (and drive it). I wouldn't say they were scrap, though.
Thanks for your reply.
Rules stipulate 30 posts before classified posting eligibility so I thought I'd try to be productive while gathering post count.
Seems a shame to scrap this stuff but would rather not give it away either.
It's easier to sell parts of them than a whole engine. Exhaust manifolds, carbs bring more than a whole engine around here. I just sold a good running 250ci for $150, but it took me over a year to unload it.
I was able to get rid of the engine from mine for $400, then again i included everything on it (ie carb, mani, etc) That was here in So-Cal... i still have the 3spd, drive shaft and rear end that i have had no luck in getting rid of... and i offered those out for $200 for everything... good luck to you (and yes, i am also pushing towards my 30 hahaha)
My thoughts assuming the stuff doesn't run. I'd pull the carb, pullies,smog stuff, and exhaust manifold off of the engine. I'd keep the Flywheel,engine spacer plate, bellhousing,transmission(That's a v8 trans that you have), shifter, I'd hang onto the driveshaft. I'd give away or junk the rear.
