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.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." Supposedly President Coolidge
