Hi Since bramd new 3.8 blocks as per original are selling for 14K Pounds English I t hink your price is unusually generous. If you liverd in Australia it would be mine in a flash!


On this side of the pond these are generally worthless. I’ve scrapped a sad amount of excess engines and parts. If someone needs this it’s a reasonable price if not, I’ll keep it.

That’s really a shame, because, as you know, you can’t buy these new at NAPA, anymore… :-):wink:

Pete is correct.

The 3.8 engine/block are more sought after than the others over here, presumably for E-types, but also MK2 “upgrades”

A fellow I know sold one quickly for $A1000 (US600)

Another set of pictures… block has crank bolted in and sump installed.
