1970 455 Buick

I've found a nice clean 455 Buick motor. It's an entirely numbers matching motor with the original quadrajet and everything. It's disassembled for a rebuild, but all parts are in great condition; just needs a rebuild. The guys asking 300 for everything. Is it worth it?

In my opinion, it is well worth the money. These engines are getting hard to find.

Regardless of any #s matching the amount you are being asked is well worth it. Now if it is a matching #s "W" engine and the original car is still in existance, you might want to buy a Lotto ticket too. The 455 was also used in bread and butter cars, but at that price, it is irrelevant.

re:

The owner said it came out of his dad's 1970 electra. I think they were 370 hp?

re:

I'm looking to just re-sell the engine for profit. I'm either gonna just re-sell as is or maybe rebuild it first.

455 buick

A few of those early 70's blocks were high nickel, good race blocks we just sold all of our buick blocks and parts and the way to go is e-bay auction start the bids at 500 and watch out. We put ours on craigs list and had alot of calls from maine and New york pennsylvania etc, I'd buy it for 300 in a second!
