Drive train for sale

Raymond Wood
 
Edited

I have a complete drivetrain that will be for sale shortly. Have engine, trans, torque tube and Rearend. Any idea what it might be worth? Was told the engine ran good when I bought the car but I have never tried to start it. Thanks I have a couple of people respond with offers. Thank You. I believe the drivetrain is worth $600. If interested please message me. 


Re: Heading on listing with Crofton:

 

I used to bid at all the Mecum auctions up until 2020. Did none in 2021 and now in 2022 they make gold bidders pay $500 per auction! Used to be $500 a year. I am now only going to bid at the Harrisburg PA auction. I will be in Florida tomorrow through Monday and might go as a viewer and not a bidder. More than happy to take some live video for you.

Hello All, I tried to register because I would like to bid if it stays reasonable. (I got my carb and some braje parts for by unrestored 52 the last show Chuck attended--Great Guy). Mecum charges $200 to be able to bid. Non-refundable and does not apply to the car if you buy it. I have a 59 Crofton and Ed Limke did the engine, but have no idea what they go for in this market.

Very tempting. Probably needs a bit more work than I would be willing/able to take on at this point, however.
