What would the cost be for a 6 cyl reman engine for a 67 mustang. I was just charged $2557.00?
First mistake: I had this work done at a 76 gas station
Second mistake: The original estimate they gave me (verbal) was for $6,000 ---- KEY WORD VERBAL
$13,000.00 is getting close to a 100% car restoration (ground up), not replacing parts to exact OEM (going to 100% OEM is more like 20 to $30,000 pending on the needs)
Engine rebuild on a 6 cylinder is maybe in the $1500.00 area (hell of a lot cheaper to do it yourself) pending work requirements (how/if cylinders get rebored and quality of parts)
My friends 62 Impala was $28,000 to 100% original detail as it came of the show room floor (down to decals in correct position)
If I do a rebuild its cost of parts and charge ($800 to 1000.00) on an 8 cylinder avg cost for an 8 cylinder materials and labor (no new crank or pistons) is about $1400.00 or so depending on quality of product owner wants
