402 - Worth It?

Hi All,

I may be going to look at a 402 for sale locally in the next day or so. It's a complete engine that the current owner purchased 15 years ago and has been sitting in his garage ever since.

He does mention it needs rebuilding so the fact that it's been sitting in his garage may not amount to a hill of beans. I did get a block casting # out of him: 3969854 and I believe a date code of D671.

I asked him for the casting # from the heads and upon searching the number he gave me found that he actually gave me the intake casting number..... 3856287 Which I assume is of no use.

He's asking $450. Would it be a good buy at $350 or $400? Or is there just not enough info to go on here?

Any input is appreciated.

that sounds pretty high to me even at $300. unless looking for a numbers correct motor I would pass. its turning into if you want a small displacement big block and have the money do. if not invest in as big a motor as you can afford to build. mark
