Info needed for two '74-'76 455, '69 Rocket 350

Good Morning Everyone, nice to have a group of Oldsmobile Minds to pick from!

My question is, with the economy the way it is right now is it worth trying to sell these engines and what prices should I expect to get for them.

I have two 1974-1976 455 engines. One was running nicely but began fouling plugs so it was pulled from the car. The other is a very strong rebuild in my '69 Olds Cutlass, has aluminum intake, Holley Carb, Accel coil and igniter HEI ignition. Runs synthetic oil. It has new wires and E3 spark plugs. Also has Hooker Headers.

I also have a Rocket 350 2 barrel, still in my '69 Olds Cutlass 4DR parts car. has 27,700 actual miles.

I wouldn't sell them unless you are really hurting for the cash. It's really hard to find those older Oldsmobile engines now days.
