Long story short, a few years back I purchased a 1960 Chevrolet Brookwood (Factory 2-door wagon). It was an original 6 cyl. car, but the PO had pulled that and replaced it with a 348 (engine manufacture date unknown). To the best of my knowledge the engine install was never completed and the 348 never ran in the Brookwood. I have sold off the wagon to my dad, since I acquired my '51 Shoebox and the 348 was sold to a friend. I was originally planning on dropping a '66 327 300hp in the Shoebox, but now I'm considering buying back the 348 and installing that instead. Price of the 348 is $300. The 348 is stuck and no components have yet been removed to inspect the internal condition. So my questions are, when rebuilt how reliable can these engines be and how costly are they to rebuild. I've done some research and noted that some regular maintenance items interchange with SBC/BBC parts. On a side note, the 348 has a factory 4bbl intake on it, but a factory 3x2 intake would be included with the sale as well. I'm thinking even if the engine is found to be not rebuild able, I could recoup some of the cost by selling off the 3x2 intake. ANY advice on just general information for the Chevy 348 would be greatly appreciated and I welcome all opinions on the matter. Thanks!
