Appreciate all the good advice everyone.

I took off the valve cover and sprayed with oil and also into each cylinder. It will turn by hand fairly easy.

The odometer reads 68k. Maybe it is 168k?

But I'm not going to look at it anymore unless I can't find another. The owner wants $500.

MikeB I wouldn't go quite that far,could be freeze cracked,if been overheated can crack in the lifter bores,head can warp both ways like a chunk of fire wood. Kind of depends on how much the yard will let you do.

Back in my day the salvage yard would start the engine & let you hear it run. It seems for that price they should. Other wise its only worth a core price.
Now with the self service yards they won't let you bring in a battery to turn it over with.


They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.
