You're not too specific on your wants or needs. I have a 1/3 hp that used to power the compressor on an old GE refrigerator.

You looking for something running, rebuild able, or good potential?

I have one that hasn't been started in many years, I turn it over every now and then. It was a strong running motor at one time but as I said, hasn't been started and I don't know much about it's previous life. Located in central KY

It was a rebuild pulled from a 67 Cougar. I just stuck it in my Mustang to be able to drive it around until I built one up. Turned out it ran pretty strong so I used it for awhile.

67 289 block
302 heads, probably generic 70s vintage
Ford aluminum Shelby type intake
Holly 600 - less than 500 miles on it
Heavy gauge aluminum finned valve covers , no script
Wires, plugs, points, distributor less than 500 miles, coil ohms out ok but is unknown age
Some weeping around one freeze plug

No guarantees

I'm looking for probably a running one but will probably open it up and go through it anyway just to be sure before dropping one in.
