Assuming it's a '91 automatic, I'd say $900 - $1500, which may be
several hundred below the price of the 4.2 lump if found separately.
Depends on the age/condition of the motor.
Basically paying for the motor and offering to cart away a worthless
real estate hog. Adjust a tad lower if it's a '90 (just MHO).
