    wrecker value probably 2000-2500, my brother sold a complete VN SS (stacked) about a year ago for 1500, it had 190,000 on it though.

    Prices vary around the place. I personally paid a bit too much for mine, but it did come with someone elses project car (which is rusting away in the back yard) but a few months ago we picked up a complete VR BT1 (to police specs rifle ) with 160,000 kliqs for 3k.

    Thanks guys...yes this is a BT1 motor..but not like the one in that other thread..as I know these motors are not worked..or chipped.

    I own this motor and autotrans, and I am thinking of selling it..

    If you can prove that its a low k's motor you could fetch a decent price for it. I was told mine had only done 90,000 k's but I bought it off a guys patio and wasnt able to hear it running, turned out it had been cooked and one cylinder was roasted a bit. Didnt matter anyway because i was stroking it.

    Yes I can prove it as it is still in the car at the moment...I have owned this car for nearly 10 years had 42000 when I bought it at Kevin Dennis...it is only driven maybe 5-10 times a year and not in the rain..Lol
    I have a company car.

    also I have a stroker in my garage..ready to be installed in the next couple of weeks..I was a chev man in my younger days...owning 4 monaro's HK 327 Bathurst an HG 350 2 speed powerguide HK 307 4 speed Saginaw and a HT 350 4 speed muncie..with LT1 heads...Gee wish I had kept them..

    Cheers

    VS LT1, what box are you using with the stroker, are you going manual, or do you have a worked auto for it.
