Looking for opinions on a fair value for complete package.
I have an original 1970 supposively low milage Boss 302 with everything from carb to oil pan , Only thing missing is exhaust manifolds.
Holly carb, boss intake , dual point with vac advance distributor , fan, pullies,alt.,valve covers all matching date code heads and block.
No visible leaks or cracks.
Has not been ran in a few years. I would think it should be taken apart and rebiult.
Also have the matching 4 speed top loader transmission with hurst shifter and all linkages, plus the clutch pedal set up insluding the Z bar.
I,d like to sell all as a package , but what is it worth.
Remember all original 1970 paint wear and tear etc. Not in show car cond, but not junk.
I really would hate to tare it down and piece it out.
Ive seen the parts alone go for high prices. Is it more valuable as parts ??
Thanks for your time..

I'd say $4,500-$6,000 together.

I don't know a lot about anything, but I know a little about everything.


Built a 1967 Shelby GT-350 Convertible Replica, a 67 Vert resto-mod and also built a 427 FE 67 Shelby GT-500R (R Stands for Replica). 427 Side Oiler, toploader 4spd, 4 wheel discs, 9" traction loc and a perfect body. What more could you ask for? Now I car hunt and horse trade and I am currently looking for the next project! Always seeking that elusive "reasonable" Shelby.

If you were to look at the sum of the parts, then it's probably worth more than $6000. However it would be a shame to see it split up and the right buyer may be willing to pay top dollar to find a complete setup. But I think oldrustyrelics is in the ballpark, I too would be willing to pay in the $5000 to $6000 range for a complete setup. Does it have the X fuel pump too?

Are you guys kidding? He has a non-running Boss 302 in good condition (parts, body) and you think he can only sell it for a bit over $6k? When refurbished, those cars are selling north of $50k. I would think $20-25k for the car as is would be more reasonable.

What am I missing here?

I read it as engine & tranny only, no car? Dunno why, by the 1st two replies I guess? :p

Sure if it's the whole car $20K-$30K, maybe more depending. ::

As you can see from the replies, it depends on whether its a motor/tranny, or a whole car. I too read it as a motor and tranny, $4500-6000 is the ballpark. Adding in a tranny, and the secondary pieces could take it to more.
Important factors would be the casting number and date code of the block, the condiion of the bores, and the part numbers on the pieces (for example, date code on the carb, correct manifolds and heads, etc.)
If you're seriously thinking of selling, let me know, I'm looking for a motor.

I really think it's just the engine & tranny also.

Sorry for any misinterporation on the 1970 Boss 302 and trans.
This is ONLY the complete motor and 4 speed transmission with hurst shifter and clutch pedals.
I appriciate your opinions !
Sounds like around $4000.00 to $6500. if I,m reading it right.
I thought it might be worth more as heads, intake, block, etc. but would like to see someone use it in a Boss as a complete set up.

I think it is pretty much a standard rule of thumb that splitting things up into individual parts causes them to bring more $$ on e-bay. Case in point a complete set of 67 fairlane moldings I just sold. I watched a whole set sell for $67 and then I watched one door molding go for $47. I listed mine seperate and together they sold for over $300. Same would hold true for the Boss stuff because many people are only looking for a part or two while fewer people are looking for a whole set-up. More buyers= higher prices.

I don't know a lot about anything, but I know a little about everything.

If the engine and tranny are original from a BOSS 302 both of them should have a vin number stamped on them. Maybe both pieces could be re-united with the original car?
