Bummer Pyro! Good luck!


I lost my engine and all the accessories to a garage fire last year so I know how you feel.


Insurance company doesn't cover car parts!  :icon_eyes:


If it makes you feel better, I know a good cause you can donate your engine too!  :cheers:

Going to junk, it will be one of those cars going down the highway on a car carrier with wrecked cars. I think they get auctioned off at special sales or crunched up for Pepsi cans. The numbers they are offering doesn't make any sense to buy it back

If it's truly going to the shredder, I'd strip that thing down to the bare frame.

How much for the engine?


I'm serious, I lost my engine to a garage fire.


Where you located Pyro?

If I'd buy it back I'd need 5K for the engine: Steel crank, forged rods and pistons, champion heads. Our quickest run was 11.17. Another grand you can have the 350 trans w/ reverse valve body. The insurance company wants to know by Friday what I'm doing. Mount Joy PA, 17552

Car will go to an Ins pool and sold at auction. I'll tell ya they arn't goin to run it threw a shredder. How high did the water get ? bottom of the seat ? Fresh or salt water ?? Salt water to me would make it a parts car. Take your $$$ an run.. Parting a car out isn't as easy as ya think. Good luck with your next project. :rock:

I had it jacked up, replacing the wire harness and installing my XFI sportsman. The right front tire was off and so was the inner fender. I haven't had the time to work on it over a year since I worked on reviving our local Fireworks display. We had about 40 minutes from when the swale next door overflowed until I to turn off the electric. We ended up with 26" of water in the shop, No, not salt water. I don't know about another project, I'll be 62 next year. I might just enjoy driving the cars I have, I thinking racing is out of the picture.

That's out of my budget. I'm out!


Maybe someone local to you can pick it up at the auction.


Good luck, still sucks to hear.

And what's funny, nobody wants to give anything for it now. I was really hoping someone get the engine. Like you said, moving on.
