68 z28 engine for sale on Craigs List - 8L338581
« on: January 15, 2008, 06:35:17 AM »
Hello,

Saw a posting for a fairly complete 68 z engine, block stamped with MO. Says it has a 610 intake, dz carb etc. Does not list the VIN. Search the SF Bay Area listings for 1-10-2008. Shows it's located in Turlock, Ca. Also still has an M20 bolted up to it. Maybe it will find it's correct home. Thanks, Dan (wish I had the car!)

Could be someone's lucky day. Of course, car could have been crushed. :'(

UPDATE:

I spoke to the seller via e-mail and his car was stolen in 2003 while under resto at someones shop (ouch!). He did sell the engine to someone in Cal. who was also buying a 68 z without engine and trans. the same week. He said the car was dark blue/white stripes with black int. rallys etc. Calif. Lic. plate #WQL 799. He said the plates will come up as stolen. Thanks, Dan..........keep 'em locked up!

We'll have to see if "Freddy" has some "Z28's" for sale in the future.  He bought the other Z engine too.
