Muncie value?

I've located a Muncie 4 spd in a mid '70's Vette. It looks too far gone to save. I'd like to offer the guy some cash for the trans. Any advice as to value on these? It's in the car with no motor or clutch. (Was a big block) Condition is unknown, bellhousing and shifter are present. Will this bolt up to a SBC?

I have seen these go for as little as $250 and I have seen them go for $750 in used condition. I would not make an offer on it until I saw the inside. Of course if he would take $250 for it I would jump on it without opening it up. It is worth that in parts alone.

I agree with 302. If the guy won't pull the cover, walk. You can spend A LOT of $$ rebuilding one of those things.

With the bellhousing and shifter, I would agree that the price can get right up to an astronomical amount. Certain shifters are more costly than others and certain bellhousings are worth more to collectors-making the thought of selling the bellhousing and replacing with an aftermarket one almost worth it if you had one that was somewhat a rare find. But being in the 70's that can be almost impossible. After a short search I found the obvious answer that it would have had to be a 1974 or earlier to have a big block as original equipment.
BUT
Which Muncie is it, M-20, M-21, or M-22, if it IS the original for that Corvette- it is really only worth more to a restorer than someone who wants to just put it in another vehicle and actually USE it.

I would (if it were me) have to look inside at the condition of the gears, shift rails, shift forks, and synchronizers. Although every part of a muncie can be bought aftermarket nowadays anyway, even better than original reproduction M-22's.

I would have to presume that it may be in rough shape if its still in the car with the engine and other underhood components missing. It is unknown (to me) if the BBC was orig equip. (only know due to a remaining header)
