excellent condition low milage motor and box removed from a dayvan, circa 1982 vintage.

van had only done a genuine 68K, but the wooden caravan-back style body was rotten from it being parked under trees for a lot of its life, hence it being broken. all works as it should, have had it running up to temperature and driven round my mates yard no problem, so both engine and box are good. totally stock with a recent new holley carb.

all ancillaries included- power steering, air con, alt, fan, etc.
theres even the prop-end, and exhaust as far back as the end of the gearbox.
it turns out the gearbox is a th400 not a 350 too.
going to collect it from my mates this evening, so will be sat in my workshop as of tonight, for interested parties to view. located colchester.
i fronted a deposit on this engine for a customer who wanted it fitted to his zodiac, but hes now disappeared and doesnt want to answer his phone to me anymore, so its no longer needed and is for sale, and will be going on ebay shortly.

more info-
block casting number- 3970010.
with the age of it and it being a truck block, it should be 4 bolt mains, but i cant tell without opening it up. this casting number is only used for truck + hi-performance blocks.
engine number V09XXTFW
D.I. number G9011XXXX

vehicle option code from underbonnet sticker (applicable to motor/box)-
K30 SPEED & CRUISE CNTL
M40 AUTOMATIC TRANS
V02 HD TRANS OIL COOLER
C60 AIR COND-FRONT
JB8 HYD PWR DS/DRM BRK-A (i dunno what this is???)
LS9 V8 ENG-350CI-5.7L-4B
NA5 FED EMISSION SYSTEM

Cheers.
