Alfa nord 2 litre alfetta engine value?

I have been clearing out my garage to make room for lathe mill etc and have come across an Alfa 2.0 twincam engine that has been there for the last 20 years.I was going to adapt it to an mgb gearbox and build a 30s style special but dont see myself getting around to it in the near future and have decided to sell it to make space.
When i got it they were not particularly rare but now there are very few for sale and they seem to make silly money ,i have seen blocks for 450 and engines for 600 upwards ,I was just going to put it on ebay as suitable for a rebuild and see what i got for it but im reluctant to sell on there now i have an idea of value, as ebay fees are to high nowadays and hope to sell it on an alpha forum even if i have to join to sell it.
Can anyone advise on realistic value or suitable sites to sell it ?
Paul.

You could wait for an ebay "max 1 fees" weekend, that is what I do for anything worth more than 20.
Otherwise there will be the facebook pages but loads of cretins, but that applies to almost any sales pages these days.

Hi,

Stick it on alfaowner, along with some clear pictures of engine and engine number. Also include a clear shot of the front of the engine which has markings just above the head gasket (so on the head...) that give additional clarity if block & head "belong" together.



Rock bottom prices for an unknown but rotating bare engine here (NL, not UK) is around 350. Most asking prices for bare engines are around 1k and around 1200-1500 if it includes carbs, alt, etc. If you have the carbs, also take pictures of the tags that should still be attached to the jet covers.

Or sell it to me for 100 quid ;-)

Correct

A time in life when the spelling is important if you want to reach the right audience and value.

It's a 2% final value fee thing on eBay for the next few days. May not be all accounts though

Ebay is very very unpredictable selling platform, as last year I sold 4 xflow engines, as no longer required now

Two, that were good spec 1660/1630, that I reckoned at about 800 both sold for just under 1500

Yet the full maxed out 1700 xflow, with big valve headand ported , 285 cam, double valve spings, lightend and balanced bottom end, in fact this was my best engine ever, and as the other two sold at a very good price, this was a 1500 engine all day

It made 720,

The 1300 xflow, that was the original in my 7, when I first got on the road, but did need a rebuild, sold for less than 100

When you add in the ebay paypal fees, you need to take 15% off for costs

Coupled with the tyre kickers and wasters,

steve





Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at
