WTB: LB7, LLY, LBZ, or LMM Engine

I'm finally getting around to building my hot rod. I'm looking for LB7, LLY, LBZ or an LMM Engine. I would prefer something with decent mileage. I would also be interested in a built engine for the right price. I'm located in Denver, please be willing to pallet and ship the engine to me. DM me for what you have and a price.

Thanks,
Joshua

Thanks for sharing. I will keep it in mind. I need the engine and not the transmission.

I’d ask him to split them up . There’s only 6k miles on that motor ! I doubt you’d find another with that low of miles lol

I have contacted him. Mileage is not a big issue, but the price is important. I will probably end up adding power adders to the motor. See how far I can push it with stock lowers. It will be going in a 68 Camaro. A little lighter vehicle should help a lot.

Okay thank you. I have also contacted an guy with a built lly. Hopefully he still has it. That would be sick to have.

So are you looking for a builder? I've got an LB7 complete oil pan to valve covers with no fuel components. Heads appear to be good but haven't been checked or anything. Engine has a cracked #7 piston and a hot spot in the cylinder wall. Probably needs bored, but I'm not a machinist and it hasn't been looked at by one.

I was going to use it to put an engine together, but don't have the need for it now. And with a baby on the way and needing to build a barn for the animals, I won't need it any time soon.

Thanks for the response. I’m not interested in building an performance engine at this time. However, if I can come across one and at super good price, then I might be interested.

Thanks for the offer.
