Heh, I'm guilty of hoarding 5.9s too. I've got a pair of deep slate ones, my DD and a non-running parts niner (which, incidentally, is Canadian).

It was non-running and in need of serious love when I bought it (for $600), so it wasn't worth trying to get it back on the road (although I did consider it). The previous rednecks took it mudding and made a disastrous mess of it (and killed the engine too). Radiator is badly shot (ballooned tubes, corroded to heck and original), had no coolant in it when I got it and it's 2 quarts low on oil. It also looked to have sucked some dirt into the intake, and they'd been running a crappy cone filter with the crankcase breather sucking unfiltered air (so basically sucking dirt right into the oil).

Engine turns by hand, but I haven't tried to get it running to see how bad it is, as the starter is shot due to mud ingestion. They said it just died on them while mudding (and presumably overheating badly) and wouldn't restart. It's also got 181k miles on it (not km), so with the damage that may have occurred, it's probably not much more than a block to use for a rebuild.

The body is a bit rusty too (hatch is rusted to heck, rockers unknown, some other hidden rust), being that it spent quite a few years in upstate NY after it came down from Canada. The interior is fairly undamaged (although pretty stripped at this point, and a few things were broken / worn / missing), but everything was coated in mud and it was full of trash too.
