Hello all. Favorite mag but first time forum poster so please direct me if I am making a mistake posting here. I tried to read all the rules till my eyes crossed.

In short I recently pulled my running and driving 302 2bbl and C4 from my 1969 Mustang convertible so that I could start getting the cars body ready for rust repair, modifications, sandblasting etc. The engine and tranny will be replaced by a coyote and T-6 so I will not need the originals anymore. They are both original to the car and numbered as 68's. the engine is even the original vin'd block. unfortunately there are not enough good factory options to make the car worth a strait up restore. I have placed the engine and tranny on craigslist for $500 or best offer for both together, then $400 OBO for both together..... with no real solid responses. Obviously any money I get from them can go into the new ride but no takers. I would almost rather give them to some one who would use them on their project but I don't know what to do now. should i just scrap them? or is there another option that i am overlooking. i though about having it rebuilt then selling them but i don't want to get stuck with any extra funds in them and still be stuck with them. Any help you guy could provide would be invaluable and greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
            Craig

there will be a lot of responses here..

a good running 69 or 70 302 2barrel can easily go 300,000+ miles with just timing chains and water pump changes..  shipping is going to be expensive..  

leave it up at Craigs..  or post a location here and check in once in a while..

there are so many people out there that need that exact combo for their straight six to V8 conversions...

be sure to invest in a digital camera... like a 4 or 5 MP. take pictures of your project.. you can post some of them here as you go along..

it also helps to photograph stuff before you take it apart and after.. so you can ask questions with images..

there are 4 mustang magazines on this site.. to look up past articles thru.. but you probably know that..

Yeah I take lots of pics. I live in Campbell, CA so if anyone is close and in need I am good to negotiate or possibly donate to a special cause. It would have to be a legit special cause but you know I am open to whatever..
