In today's market free would probably be a better price.  A gas engine and the engine is locked up?

Wanderlodges are nice, but that unit is nearly 50 years old.  It probably needs partial or full restoration like most 50 year vehicles.

$1000 OBO....so if you're local enough to it, have the room and the interest, offer much less plus you'll haul it away. If they're in a situation where they have to get it off the property soon, they may take it. Know your towing costs first, of course.

No way those are leaf springs and ride so rough the bed sheets shake off the bed and a 391 Ford industrial engine costs the same as small farm to overhaul

Actually a Jasper 391 isn't bad at all.  When I checked out of curiosity a couple years ago, it was under $2,000.

$1,000?  Wow, they're paying around $500 for full size cars at the junkyard around here.

I'd either move up to a 460 for gas or a mechanical 7.3 if you want diesel.  Assuming there's space.  I had a 406 in a 64 galaxie once.  460 mo betta.

Agreed.  My 391 could hardly get out of it's own way and you didn't get any trade off for gas mileage either... 5 mpg.  Sad  But then again, that thing weighed 14 tons.

I checked on a 391 from Jasper also Mark and found out they do not rebuild the heads with the sodium filled valves like you find on 391 and 361 as OEM you cannot grind the sodium filled valves on a 391 head you buy new ones and they are not cheap lol

good luck

Oh, didn't know that.  Guess that would make a difference.  Glad I was able to sell mine.  Grin
