I kind of want to buy it as spare parts for my 6.0L Express motorhome.

That's a killer deal, I really wish it was closer.

I would never buy another van as a donor again, what a B to get out.

Liberal application of the Sawz-All and death wheel would help right ?

I concur, no amount of cheapness would make it worth not buying a pulled for me engine for $400-500 at my local junkyard.

So what you're saying is, instead of an LS donor, this is actually best served as being a platform for a hella sweet turbo racing box van? laugh cheeky

How are you finding complete engines, harnesses, keys, body modules, etc. for $500? That's incredible.

In reply to Brett_Murphy :

Having the whole truck and with transmission is a good deal. Complete engine and harness at my pull apart is $400 if you do it yourself or $500 pulled for you. Picked up a 5.3 aluminum block same prices.

Looks like the price went down.

 

Maybe if Patrick or I had a lift we would think differently about how easy it is to pull the engine out for another project. This is the room in a van to pull the engine up.

At those prices, it may be worth driving the trailer up to your neck of the woods to pick up a full swap (Engine, accessories, trans, etc.) Just the engine (no wiring harness or accessories) seems to run $500 here.
