I pulled the engine and transmission out of a nice running 37 Dictator sedan a few years ago. I needed parts for both a 37 and 38 Coupe Express which I was working on at the time. Now someone else that is working to restore a 37 Coupe Express is interested in the engine and transmission. I'm looking for suggestions on what these items would be worth. Base on the running condition when removed, I think they can be put in without rebuilding.

Any thoughts or suggestions of the value of these items would be appreciated.

I should have mentioned, it was body parts I needed. The engine and transmission are complete.

$600 for both?

My guesstimate, partly because they have been sitting for years, is $500.

Thanks guys, that's in line with what I was thinking. The hoarding side of me does not want to get rid of them, but since I may never get around to using them, I'd like to see them go to someone that can use them now. Your input makes me feel more comfotable with asking $500 for both.
