85 300d Part out or Buy whole set up
I bought an 85 300D with a bad engine one year ago. I was fixing it for my son, and i ran across an 84 ready to drive. Since then, we have decided to go another route. I'm putting a 3.9 cummins in a 2000 F150 ext cab 4wd, but that is another forum. I am also working on another ford project so the 300D is taking up space. The body and interior are in great shape. I purchased a good motor (178K miles on it). The Tranny was operating fine when the PO locked the engine up -(left the lock nut loose on a valve after adjusting valves
) Anyway, i have the engine mated to tranny with starter bolted up. It has a new manifold gasket, valve cover gasket, new vacuum pump, new thermostat housing and water pump gaskets. I have all new belts and bearings for all of the wheels. The ac compressor and alternator are there as well. I just don't have time or money to fix them both. I would like to sell the whole car, but would consider selling the engine and tranny together. I have 1750 in the car/parts. Any offers would be given consideration. I have the ability to deliver the car for fuel cost. I am about 80 miles off of the Mississippi Gulf coast. Let me know if you are interested. I can email pics upon request.
