Why not put the Jeep engine/tranny in it? I believe some of those box vans were straight 6 powered.

I still don't see him getting more than $1k for it though. Probably not worth the work.

I would consider this, but the 258 I have is freshly rebuilt, hasn't been fired, hasn't even been filled with oil yet. I know there's not a huge demand, but I feel I could get more from selling the engine by itself.

My vote for 4BT in Jeep. Those are hard to come by where I'm from.
