do a compression/vacuum test on it, is it "junk" or good enough for some guy's work truck?
price it based on the results

|jimfulco||It's a standard-output 302, but it does have a tiny roller cam, with peak torque occurring at 2000rpm. The trans is the AOD. It's an excellent motor for low-rpm performance, but it will run out of breath at ~3500rpm, 4000 if you bust out the catalysts.|

Not likely this motor is an H.O. like those in the Mustangs so don't tell people its the same motor. The plain 5.0 means no roller cam and not sure what else. Most guys building a performance motor would want to start with a 5.0 HO because they are so plentiful and its already an advantage over a plain jane 5.0.
Ask 350 and see what happens.

Pretty sure that's the AOD. Fair tranny can be build up to take some abuse.
As far as pricing goes, around here they go for about the same as a Th350.
