I get a call from a female co-worker/ friend of my wife and I. Her ex-husband passed away and left their daughter a house and a garage full of Chev speed parts. Blocks, heads, cams, forged and cast cranks. Kind of overwhelming how much stuff is there. Her ex was a dragracer and built drag and stock car engines. It looks like he had 3 engine builds going at once. They asked me to help price this stuff out and I agreed before I saw how much there was but now I am committed. Anyway, so far there is interest in a 10069286 casting 454 4 bolt freshly machined block. About 10 BBC cranks so no idea which one is for that block. Rough price on the 286 block? Looks to be a 1990-1991 casting date, likely from an SS454 truck. Possible buyer for it. I realize everything will have to be checked as the information died with the owner. I told them to Google part numbers for recognizable parts and basically ask 1/2 of new. Now these folks did not know what a head, manifold or block was until I showed them so you can see the problem here. This is going to be a lot of work. There are a few items I am giving them a fair price for and they were trying to give me some for helping but I just want to see them not get robbed. Some A-hole offered them $2500 for the whole lot and they knew enough to tell him to hit the road. That's when they called me.
