200 inline 6

I was just wondering, my dad has a 200 inline 6 from back in the day. We were going to put it in the 66 mustang until we decided to go ahead and put the 302 in it. So, we have this 200 inline 6 with transmission that is all original except for the carb. He wants to sell it and I want to keep it and restore it. So the questions are... Is it worth keeping? Should I restore it? and if i decide to sell it, should I sell it as is or restore it and sell it? Keep in mind this engine has not run since the 70's. Let me know what you think.

If it is a numbers matching engine it's worth keeping.

Re: 200 inline 6

Would be a tough call, for the most part the only buyer you would likely have is someone that is restoring an old mustang. I would say since its not a completely numbers matching, to sell it as is. To get good money out of it (if you rebuild everything) you would have to find original parts to put on it. And then you would still not be guaranteed to get all the money back out of it.

That's a good point. Any idea of what it could b worth?

Re: 200 inline 6

depends on the buyer. I'm not a restorer of cars so I wouldn't even have a guess. If it were me buying, it would be to throw in a car to drive so it would only be $100 - $200 or so if it wasn't locked up. But to the right buyer (who has a plan for it) you could probably get a little more for it.

Ok. Thanks for your advise. I'll run it over with my dad and see what he thinks.
