Post 350 chevy 2bolt main?????

I have the chance to buy a small block chevy 2bolt main bored 30 over,magnafluxed,new freeze plugs,new cam button,new timing chain,new trw pop-up pistons(domed),new rings,camshaft from a L88 corvette motor,new front and rear seals,stock intake manifold(split plenum),stock connecting rods,new bearings,all new seals are on motor,272 heads, new valve seals,brass valve guides,and stock springs. It does not have carb.,starter,alternator,fuel pump,distributer,and pulleys. The pushrods were not put in to keep the valves closed so the cylinders would not get dirt inside. He wants me to make an Offer any help would be appriciated from fellow members.
Thanks-Mario and Tyler

L88 cam??????, how on earth did the guy fit a mehanical 427 big block cam in a 350 small block
sounds fishy.
If you feel you want the motor buy it, just remember that essentially its a stock, truck style 350 sb, and that the seller is trying to make nessecary rebuild items like freeze plugs and so on sound like somthing thats worth paying extra for
offer 500, and pay no more that 1000, unless its exactly built to the spec you always wanted, and you know the builder (not only the seller) or you will end up with a rebuilt, cast crank, stock rods, resealed engine thats worth its weight in iron. <img src="graemlins/drunk.gif" border="0" alt="[drunk]" />

remember that a brand spanking new 4 bolt, 285 hp goodwrench performance 350 is sold at 1950,- and comes with a 36 month, 50.000 mile warranty..! and the base 250 hp engine is 1575.- so unless its cheap, tell him to keep it

I looked in all my casting number books, I found no record of a 272 casting. closest i came was a 292 casting which was the infamous "turbo head" as it was nick named, which was a over the counter GM race head, but not to say there isn`t a 272 casting. since there is no small block L88 cam, and he says that it has dome pistons, if i couldn`t see them, i wouldn`t take his word, that`s a classic line many use to jack up the price, not only that, it wouldn`t run too good with domed pistons on pump gas, it would detonate itself to death unless the timing was set low, and then it wouldn`t have any power so that kinda defeats the purpose.

There was an L-82 Corvette cam in the early 70s I believe. Lift was in the .450-.460 range with a 224 duration. It wasn't anything to brag about... I know!

Actually, I spoke with him today and he said he had it stored at his grandfathers which is going up for auction so he really needs to sell it. He told me $125.00 for everything(engine) and the stand for $25.00 before we even made an offer. In my opinion the block would be worth that??
Thanks-Mario and Tyler
