I have a 283 / Saginaw in my 34 pickup. A close friend (totally trust him) is thinking of selling a flattie setup (engine, 42 truck trans, radiator, starter, battery) that he has owned for years, housed in a rig he built that allows him to run the engine on the stand, and he does that periodically. He was saving it for a ground-up build but already has an A roadster and A coupe and, getting older, just wants to drive and enjoy them now. <O</O He wants 1500 for it. Id love your help thinking through a few things: 1) is it a good deal? Looking at flattie prices in the last few days since hes told me about it, it looks like it is <O</O 2) Should I swap a SBC for a flattie? I use the truck for cruising and for general running around and dont drag it (but love to run it through the gears when I drive it).
