    Looking for a 72 Z 4 speed block CKS in Canada, bought my Z in 1990 with no motor, everything else was there but engine, just a shot in the dark.
    Thanks

    Almost. I have a 72 Z automatic short block (CKT), without looking at it I think it was cast in early March and assembled in April. No VIN, was it was an engine that was built for a car that the strike took out. It actually ended up in my 71Z as a dealer warranty replacement the summer of 72 as GM had more than a few 72 LT-1's built for 72 Z28's that were crushed. Good luck with your search.

    well low and behold, I would be interested depending on the condition of course, what kind of coin do you need to get this boat anchor off your property (just kidding) first would you be able to help in shipping like put it on pallet and strap it down, then the big question how much,I would shoot down to pick it up but covid screwed that up unless the borders open soon. I'm a bit worried about shipping since the covid shipping to Canada has been on the high side, so gimme a price and we can go from there.
    Thanks R

    I’m going to have the block picked up this Wednesday and have it degreased and manga flux first by my engine builder. I’ll keep you posted and send me a PM and we can exchange numbers.
