I appreciate all the responses and welcome! When the car went through the restoration they removed the original engine (I'm not sure why) and put in a 350. The owner I bought the car from did have the original engine, rims, and parts in his possesion when I bought the car. The seller and the person that helped him restore the car are friends and the seller sold the engine wheels and parts to him. Now, a little over a year later, I am being offer to buy the engine, wheels, and "every original part and bolt" for 12K. I know I need to ask for pictures of the casting#, casting date, and engine code. I am not experienced in these kinds of negotiations and seller is quite experienced. I do and would appreciate any advice for what other questions I should be asking and also what would be a fair price? When I asked of the condition of the engine at this time the response I received was "Engine is fully assembled. Just needs typical valve adjustment before running. If you know anything about the 30/30 z28 motor, it has a solid cam. This valve lash is what needs adjusted. Very easy to do in or out of the car."
