So tempted

20 posts in this topic

If I want to, I can exchange the minor landscape job I'm doing right now for a Vintage smallblock Chevy.

It is a circa 1955/56 265 with the original Carter WCFB dual quads on the original GM dual quad manifold.

It needs a rebuild/restoration.

I really shouldn't do it, but...

someone is willing to trade you a classic car for a landscaping job?

How would that even work? He just shows up for the landscaping job and you take the car?

No,no.

I'm doing the landscape job.

And it's not a car, just the engine.

It is my option to take the engine, or the cash.

Well, it depends....do yu plan to use this in a car?

Do you plan to rebuild it and resell it? Would it sell or more than the landscaping job would cost?

IF yes to any of those I would seriously consider it.

Well how much is the engine worth?

With the carbs and intake, likely quite a bit.

Haven't run the numbers, but it would have to be from one of those. It came out of a speedboat in the 70s and has been in storage ever since.

That's just it, I don't know what I'll do with it if I take it.

If money in hand wasn't so tight, I would take it in a heartbeat.

And I'm still thinking it over as things are.

Tangible Goods > paper money backed by NOTHING.

And a '55 SBC is one damn fine tangible good, even one needing a rebuild.

Except I'm petty sure you can't pay utility bills by handing them a motor. :P

Recent events have conspired against the idea of taking the 265 - for now.

I'll be needing the cash for more boring things.

I love trading stuff like this...

Around here, people trade car stuff for services all the time. The first work I had done on my '73 was in trade for my labor around the shop.

LOL, memories...
