I listed a beautiful 196 OHV Long Block for sale months ago.  I can't find the ad in a search which may be why there isn't a buyer yet.

It is out of a 1961 and I bought it as a spare.  I have it soaked in oil and turned over monthly.  It has been stored in a heated garage and covered.  It is located in Coatesville, PA 19320.

Someone must need or want this.  I'll work with anyone to get it in your possession.  I paid $750 but will take $500.  It has new bearings and rings on a stock bore.  Owner had the work done and the car was wrecked.  A wonderful engine someone needs?
Thanks for finding it a home

I practically gave away a T-96 with overdrive. The guy wouldn't come pick it up.
Good luck.

Yeah, we let ads run for 90 days then deleted if not sold.
I used to collect trophies. Way more fun to log miles and collect gas receipts!

I get it.   I had a 4.0 complete in a Jeep. And it had a 2wd aw4 in it.   I offered it for $150.  But no one wanted to come get it.  They wanted me to do all the work.
I loaded it and scrapped it for alot more than $150.
This is why I dont sell stuff for the most part.
When I sell something and they dont want to put any effort in it...
I will just scrap it and problem is solved.
