Brother Dustin has a 77ish 280z. Stone stock drivetrain. 

He's using a quart of oil every 100 miles, and can't keep #6 plug lit. Its toast.

Figured if anybody would have a good running, known good engine for one of these, it'd be yall. 

Anyone? Im guessing 260z,280z, and 280zx would all work. 

Just something healthy and good is all im looking for. Longblock or complete. 

Preferably within 10 hours of Charlotte NC unless we can work out a relay somehow.

Looks a little crusty but "he knows it works" so there's that.

In reply to ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ :

That's almost exactly how he got his current engine. Random Craigslist dude at told them it was a good one. That's why we figured we'd ask here, as we are generally a bit more reliable than random Craigslist dude when it comes to Otis to descriptions. Unless we're trying to enable somebody.
