The 302 is not a common engine in las cruces. None of the salvage yards carry them. If I was buying this from myself I would want it rebuilt. It's worth more than the short block core charge because all the stuff is there. I want to make sure I am fair to the buyer as well as my self. It was my daily driver for 4 years and would easily pull the jeep past 80 mph. I am really not interested in building a stand to make it run just for a few hundred dollars more. Besides there is no exhaust manifolds or headders which would be pretty loud.

For the ppl that HATE HEADDERS, the stick versions, drivers side mani does NOT dump into the clutch linkage. I sold an ugly set for $150.
I was gonna hold firm at $175, but my mom is on Soc Sec, so I gave in . OK, the Mom part was BS.
Seriously, I did sell a set for $150, my asking price.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

I will not be putting headers on the 302.
