Post Value of Chev 302 engine

What is the Value of a rebuildable Chev 302 out of a 1969 Camero? I think they are rare? What is the Value of a Rock crusher 4speed with Hurst shifter?
What can you do with a 267 Chev V8? Are they worth putting any money into? Are they not a Calif smog motor? Cleaning out the closet, and don`t want to loose out on this stuff.
So thank you all in advance.

267 good for anchoring small boats evan some yachts.Can plant flowers in it w/ the heads off.

The 302 is worth a bit to a camaro restorer.But if you don't find one I'll take it for a christmas present.

If it's a complete "DZ", original intake to pan, I'd say about $2,000. WAG. Let me know, I have one in the basement.

no, i'll take it and the tranny too, as i live right here in sunny washington i can pick it up in an hour! dont know the value to be honest but a z-28 owner would give his left nad for one. the m-22 probly 6-800 if rebuit as you can buy a new richmond for $1200. i was offered one for 400 last summer didnt buy it cause i don't have a chevy car. i heard they have 4-bolt mains.-the engine not the tranny!

I think Reardan, WA is closer to Benton City than Burlington isn't it? I could take it off your hands if you need to get ride of it. there is a kid here in town that has a Z28 with a 350 that could use it.

Thanks guys, but i wasn`t lookin to give it away. Would like to get what it is worth to help finance my 57 truck project. I am putting a camero front clip under it, and would like to do the tilt sterring and move the gas tank out of the cab, as well as rewire the truck while it is down. I was hopeing to sell this stuff and come up with around $1000.00 to pay for the truck stuff. Thanks to you i now have some idea of it`s true value. The engine has the right no#`s . It is a long block , that was running when it came out of the 69 Camero. But it must be rebuilt. The rock crusher was given to me , and i was told it was o.k. It has the Hurst shifter with it. And i guess the 267 is a boat anchor? Thanks again for your replies.

gee, i just got done, well almost, doing my 55 truck!!! used the tilt out of a 79, it had an automatic so i have a shifter i have to cut off. flaming river is cheaper that ididit, but my f.r. steering shaft is their "stainless steel" and it started rusting after 2 weeks!! you will probably need the 2 u-joint shaft only if you do a frame swap, i don't know about the camaro front clip. depends on the angle of the dangle. i used a painless fuse box-$100 and wired it myself, but i am currently blowing my main fuse. but hell, it's only been like one day!(it's a boy). right when i got started classic trucks mag. had an article about painless' whole enchilada kit, and with all the bells and whistles, the $300+ kit looks like it may have been a better way to go. i get free wire from school where i work, so why pay for it. but it took me like a month because cars aint nothin like houses!! my tilt column was $100 at the wrecker, incl. wires. i used the 79's mounting bracket(had to section it) because i need the clutch and brake pedal cause i was using the power brake booster/master cylinar set up too. (did you read where i just said the word SECTION IT? AS IN CUT 3 INCHES OUT OF IT?) use a Haynes for the wiring diagram as chilton's blows chunks. has built in signals/hazards, so the brake lights go thru it too (brakes and T/S = same bulb filiment) good luck, hope to see you--IN LIKE A YEAR!! took me 18 months, but i had no garage, did a frame off, live above seattle (can you say RAIN?) and was sick from all the little pukes at school from Nov. thru March and didn't even touch my rig. I painted my truck in olive drab primer, white stars on the doors and like a 6" lift form putting it on the 79's 4x4, frame, w/original service box. I'll post a pic sometime :p :p oh yeah, you need to find a suburban gas tank, fits between the frame rails of a 79 anyway, i hung mine from two pieces of uni-strut on 12" of all-thread on all 4 corners, put the filler neck inside my box.-be sure to install a vent, if you dont gas won't go it. the over-flow tube is NOT and does NOT act as a vent!! i learned this the hard way! <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" /> by the way, why arnt you stickin the m-22 in your truck?? you crazy??

i just got my new Classic Trucks magazine, which you should probably subscribe to although it's very expensive at $23/year. (custom classic trucks is another mag. $12/yr but it's bi-monthly)they have an article in theOct 2002 issue on converting a tri-five chev.truck to power steering while retaining the straight axle. sfb

oh yeah-duh, you said yor dumpiing the straight axle! well alot of it has to do with installing a new column.

slider,

I would put an add in the paper for that bad boy! A DZ 302 all taken apart went for well over $2,000 on eBay awhile ago. The M-22 is worth $400-$500 at least even if it does need a rebuild.

Tim

Just saw a shortblock "Z-28 302" on EBay starting at $1,700. They added however it was NOT a DZ or MO, which means it's probably just a 327 block with a 283 crank!

There is a fella named John Williams that lives in Ferndale that has several of the tri-five (3)trucks. I don`t have John`s number, and it is a common name. But you might get lucky. John has a sheet rock business.
Also call a fella named Jack Palmer at 360-380-7384. Jack may know of one as he is a mover and a shaker!!! Allways dealing on stuff. Very good guy.
You can try a biker buddy of mine called "Uncle Tom" at 360-354-8603. Tom is a long time hot rodder, and may be able to hook you up. So Now tell us what happened to you hood????
