Okay, Warren is still looking to see if he can get the contact info for the engine seller, but in the meantime, the ebay seller emailed me back.
I want to say right off that dancindan48 has always been up front with me when I've asked questions regarding their ebay sales. I probably have 10 cars in the database from them and they are always willing to help. And this one is no exception. Here's what they had to say:
Thanks for thinking of us.
I don't think we want to try and put that car back to a small block. Someone spent a lot of time and money making it into a big block and at this point we kinda like it the way it is!
Again, he was up front and very responsive, so I look at this as a positive. You also have to remember that dancindan48 is a dealer, so they can only go by what the current owner states when they take the car in on consignment. I don't want anyone to think THEY'RE
trying to push a base V8 car as an SS. And since I don't know who the actual owner is, we also have to give him (or her) the benefit of the doubt. I want to reiterate that here in the U.S. people are innocent until proven guilty. I dont want this thread to turn ugly. Especially since we don't have ALL the facts.
