built, not bought
It’s a 3.0 and ran fine 2 years ago when I last turned the key off. Was running sta-bil in fuel for last run and seafoamed it good. Still in frame, bolted to a automatic with no first gear, has p/s pump, a/c compressor, manifolds. Knuckles are off of I-beams but rest of front suspension still there, frame cut behind transmission crossmember. No sheet metal, keep a hood on top of engine but that’s it. Rolled over by hand last week to make sure it hadn’t seized. Free for the taking, hate to see a useable engine junked and I really don’t have room inside it to store it. I don’t have a way to pick it up, if I get rid of it i’ll Have to take it completely apart where it sits or reassemble the front suspension and tow it backwards into town. Still have most of the electrical and computer if you’d want that.

Also throwing in a 7.5 axle, it came with this chassis originally, 3.45 gears, open. No drums, seal leak on right side. Didn’t use the knuckles or calipers but all parts are loose and anti-seized, would come apart easy. I did keep the steering box and the steering linkage is from my 94, very loose tie rod ends.
