$50.00. I doubt it runs. Even if everything looks good on the outside, it could be shitty as *** on the inside. Shitty pistons, rods, camshafts, ect. If you do get it, I'd inspect the cylinder head and the block first.

no it doesnt run it needs rebuilt but 50 bucks for the block and head? cant beat that i planed on rebiuldin it anyway.

i kinda figured its not direct and id need a tranny and all the wiring and stuff, but how hard would this be? i have a few friends with hybrid hondas that did all the work on them.

Whatever you plan to do.. 50 bucks is a good deal. Even if you rebuild and sell, you'll still make some profit, and THAT money can go to the Focus if the engine doesn't fit. hehe.

Everybody wins.
