Low retail is in the range of $3200, If your selling yourself, figure $2-4K. for a decent example. Any condition issues, figure less.

Im Just wondering if it is worth placing a "rod " that my stupid husband blew when he entered the the dragway... I LOVE My T-bird,,,Just not sure as far as mileage etc.

Here is another Photo,,137K miles

He spunned a rod in the engine during a free car race on a track.. So Is it worth Money to put into to get it fixed..?? I Really would hate to let it go>> plz let me know .. You can also e-mail @ lilsquaw1969@comcast.net Thank You so Very Much P.S. It's been in the indoor garage ever since. Plz contact me as I really want to know if my t-bird is worth the work... Thank You ,,Michelle

If you really like it and the rest of the car is OK, then it will be worth to fix. But.....rebuilding an engine, based on all the labor will be close to replacing with a re-manufactured engine, and that will run you close to $3-5k, more than what the car is worth. Call a couple local mechanic and or engine shops for an estimate. maybe you can get lucky and someone will be able to work on it on the side for much less. Maybe find a junkyard motor, but that will be hard to do. With your engine being a boat anchor, the car is worth nowhere near the $3200 I originally quoted you. I worth closer to scrap value, $400. Sorry.
