Beleived to be a Donovan, previous owner removed all external identification to pass it off as iron. NEEDS REPAIRS - but is a $5000 piece new. All the "top shelf" features. All 5 main caps are 4 bolt machined steel, connection for scavenge in valley. Priority main oiling, all options for wet or dry sump - even has LH dipstick hole. Screw-in O-ring freeze plugs. Mechanical fuel pump provision, fully machined. All motor mount bosses threaded, etc.
Never windowed, outside cosmetically perfect. 350 mains, 4.165 bore currently. Weighs about 90#.
Repairs needed - will need at least 4 sleeves. RH Deck needs to be be plugged and welded in 4-5 places, as "double oversize" thread repairs distorted the sleeves. Head stud/bolt holes would have to be redone in these areas. Sleeve bores would then need a little touch-up, and new sleeves shrunk in. IMHO, both decks should be touched up - but there are .051 head gaskets available to compensate.
Price is a negotiable $ 1500. Some Modified parts, metalworking machines, electronic scales, or S-10 plow truck (have plow) may be acceptable in trade.
Contact Me (john Reed) or Kevin Gale (owner) for more details. Pictures to follow.

How does $800 sound?
If you have access to a Bridgeport (mill), and know a good GTAW gtaw welder, this is quite repairable. Engineering help for big strokers, heads, hardware, etc. comes with the deal.
